Summertime is the BEST season to grab an exciting book, hit the beach, and immerse yourself in a good read. Right now I am in the process of reading all of Michael Crichton's books. His JURASSIC PARK is one of my all-time faves, and I have since read THE LOST WORLD, THE ANDROMEDA STRAIN, STATE OF FEAR, PREY, THE GREAT TRAIN ROBBERY and now SPHERE......The last book I read was AFTERSHOCK by Chuck Scarborough. It mixed soapy elements with the fictional (?) reality of a major catastrophic earthquake epicentering in Manhattan. I enjoyed it, though it got to be monotonous at times....Three other authors I recommend are Clive Barker, Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. If you like techno-thrillers and theme parks, you MUST read Lincoln Child's UTOPIA.
