No. I don't think he's the best. He's good, but the best (in my opinion) is Asimov. Or, Octavia Butler. Or, Arther C. Clark. I could keep naming names here but let me just say Michael Crichton is a really good story teller who has an awesome sense of pace. He will make my top 50 and maybe my top 20 but no higher.

Andromeda strain was probably his best book, but he has a tendency to repeat his stories over and over again. Asimov is much more original.

Yes I am also a fan of his books. I Think its difficult for me to pin point one book as the favourite one as all his books have been to my liking.I am trying to get a hold of the Novel "Next" released this year.I am sure it is as good as the earlier ones.

My favorite author for sci-fi is Isaac Asimov. For other genre it's Stephen King.

I prefer Isaac Asimov, have you read his work? Bill Ransom is good too.

Michael Crichton is great, but have you ever read Arthur Clarke's books! They are terrific!
