  •  Crichton is a hack (4.00)
    His writing evolution stopped at Andromeda Strain. He is a great example of the potential issues with early success. His novels read like TV screenplays, with the cliffhangers at the end of chapters so obvious that you start looking for the commercials to kick in at the break. And as said, his sentences are painful to the trained ear.

    A very bright guy, from what I hear, but a stunted novelist, and an example of how ego and massive wealth can distort ones thought process.
