My Dad and I read everything Crichton wrote and saw all of the movie adaptions of his more popular books. “Sphere” is one of my favorite books. I didn’t much care for the film. The adaptation of “Congo” was pretty good and I liked the book.
I love the water, the sea, almost everything about it so it’s no surprise I’m finding a Crichton book about pirates fun to read, more or less. This is a fiction book, but it reads like non-fiction in some respects. I’m having a nice time with it, so far.
The other book I’m reading, besides poetry magazines and books, is “Magnificent Vibrations” by Rick Springfield. I have always wanted to see him in concert, but never have, I do like his music and his autobiography so I decided to read this one, too. It’s a satire on religion - very unusually done and entirely unique. It’s a nice contrast to the more serious Crichton book.
I’ll have to see which one I end up liking better. Pirates or Religion? It certainly makes for an interesting choice!
