One of my favorite authors.

Oh no!! I enjoyed so much of his work.

Wow. I read a lot of his work - always a reliable read.

Me too. Jurrasic Park was the best book i’ve read in a long long time.

I didn’t realize he was 66. He’s books were excellant!

Sorry to see him go. Most of his books are my favorites, with Timeline as my favorite.

I was shocked when I saw this thread… He was one of my favorite authors.

Congo was a great book, never read anything else of his though.

Did anyone enjoy Congo?

Shit, that came out of the blue. Have only read The Lost World which was very well written.

Yes, but I went to school for Geology. I’m a sucker for any story revolving around a geologic plot.

wow…one of my favorites. The first book I read of his was Rising Sun…I was hooked after that.

I enjoyed it as well. I think Eaters of the Dead was my favorite, along with Rising Sun.

He was a pretty entertaining author and a bright guy.

Wow! Like others have said, I really enjoyed reading his books. I’m sad to see him go.

RIP

That’s a bummer. One of the greats for sure.

He’s a qualified doctor as well.

Timeline is a great read, one of my all-time favourite books. Shame about the film version, though…

Do not get me started on Timeline the movie.

Hehe, I know.

Maybe the writers forgot to actually read the book before ‘adapting’ it.

I dread to think how many people have been turned off the book by that trainwreck of a movie…
