    1. Hi! My comment today was that I did not know Crichton died a few years ago. Or maybe I did but I forgot.

  2. The Kill Switch looks intriguing.

    I read a lot of Crichton books back in college. I remember hearing he passed away a few years ago- but I don't remember hearing of Micro. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I haven't ever read Michael Crichton, but remember selling a lot of his books when I worked at a bookstore 20 yeas ago. I think Micro sounds interesting.

    2. I'll have to add a few of his titles to my summer reading list then. I'd love to find a new (or in this case older) author to fall in love with.
