In the 2008 Year-End Special issue of Entertainment Weekly, Stephen King wrote this about Michael Crichton:
"As a pop novelist, he was divine. A Crichton book was a headlong experience driven by a man who was both a natural storyteller and fiendishly clever when it came to verisimilitude; he made you believe that cloning dinosaurs wasn’t just over the horizon but possible tomorrow. Maybe today."
