"Jurassic Park" author was 66. (etonline)

Unexpected news to say the least. I think JP was the only book of his I read, but it was a ripping yarn.

Never read the books, but he brought ER to the small screen, so for that, I respect him! RIP!

Was a huge fan of his back in college. With the exception of Jurassic Park, I don't think that any of the movies that were based on his novels did them justice.

Sphere was the first book that actually got my heart to skip a beat because it freaked me out so much.

Sad indeed.

This is a shocker. I hadn't heard he was sick and didn't think he was that old.

I was a huge fan of his books back in high school. The first one I read was Jurassic Park, which I got for Christmas the year it came out in paperback. I remember loving it, and being so excited for (and inevitably let down by) the movie.

I still love The Andromeda Strain and I credit it with my starting my love of killer disease movies.

Thank you, Universe, for bringing me down this morning. This is very sad. Jurassic Park was the first "adult" novel I ever read - and he was, therefore, the first author I spent a summer reading the entire backlog of.

I feel bad because I pretty much wrote him off after that anti-environmentalist book he wrote a few years ago, and I'm only this morning remembering how much I truly loved his work. I feel like rereading something.

Wow...The Andromeda Strain is easily one of my favorite books. I'm shocked and saddened by his passing.

Rest in peace.
