Michael Crichton Books (may contain spoilers)

I just finished Timeline, and while I found it had a lot of problems (info dumps, cardboard characters that were under-developed), overall I enjoyed its action/suspense type theme. I might read Pirate Latitudes next. Any recommendations other than Jurassic Park? (I couldn't stand the movie, so don't think I'd like the book.)

The Andromeda Strain comes to mind. I particularly loved the process the researchers had to go through to cleanse themselves to get into the lowest level of the lab where they were working, plus there was a great medical mystery going on, and some creepy scenes also.

Jurassic Park is actually a fantastic book. Sphere, and Disclosure are both good by Crichton, IMO.
