Which authors are comparable to Michael Crichton

  • Hello

    I think Michael Crichton's books are absolutely awesome! Especially "Forgotten World", "Loot" and "Timeline".

    Do you know similar authors / books?

    I would like to mention that I already know a lot of similar authors. For example :

    Douglas Preston

    Lincoln Child

    James Rollins

    Thomas Thiemeyer

    Andreas Eschbach

    Frank Schätzing

    Bernhard Kegel

    Clive Cussler

    Unfortunately, I don't feel it as well as Crichton does.

    I hope someone has a recommendation for me.

    Kind regards, Jenya

  • I also like Michael Crichton, I also have a lot of his books. But I feel like you, I hardly know anything that would be enough. You have already listed practically all of the authors who write in this direction, and there will probably not be so many more who can keep up.

    Matthew Reilley might be something else who also writes science or rather techno thrillers, or Stephen Baxter's "The Last Flood" and "The Last Arche", but neither of them really impressed me.

    I used to read a lot by Robin Cook, who writes really exciting medical thrillers, and it's often about research. Maybe that would be something else for you.

    Otherwise, I only know a few older books that could possibly fit the topic.

    For example, "Missing Link" by Walt Becker. Or spiral by Paul McEuen. Or "Stone Grave" by Jenni Mills, which I thought was pretty good at the time.

    If you don't mind a little science fiction either, then Michael J. Sullivan's "Zeitfuge" might be worth a look, I liked that very much. It's about a journey through time into the future, in which humanity lives in a completely new social order, and I think the author's writing is really exciting.

    I can't think of anything else right now, and even the books mentioned probably don't quite meet your expectations. In terms of topics and tension, Michael Crichton simply doesn't match Michael Crichton, so don't promise yourself too much

  • Thank you very much, book dragon!

    I wrote down your tips. Excellent ! I don't know most of them yet. However, you don't seem to be really excited about it either. Thanks anyway.

    I used to read Robin Cook too, I forgot to mention him.

    I have nothing against a bit of science fiction, on the contrary.

    I have another author on my list who might also be good: Phillip P. Peterson

    In any case, this trilogy has a lot of good reviews.

    I agree with you that probably nobody can top Michael Crichton. Pity !

    Greetings from Jenya

  • chiclana

    Thank you, too, for your tips!

    I started the audio book with Blackout a few days ago and I read Mirror last year. That was good.

    I don't know Uwe Laub yet, but Sturm sounds good, I put it on my list. Excellent !

    Kind regards

  • Hihi, Jenya, I can compare the real-time trilogy for myself, but it wasn't for you.

    I found the Sacer Sanguis series very good and similarly exciting (in the following order:

    II, III, I and IV can be read): Sacer Sanguis II

    Will-o'-the-wisp and witch (7th witch rule: never underestimate the power of the word - it has a special power, it can liberate, strike and change, but also hurt and destroy)

  • Do you already know Daniel Suarez? I've read "Daemon", "Darknet" and "Control" from him. He writes thrillers that mostly deal with the subject of technology.

    I also thought of an author, Boris von Smercek, who also writes science thrillers.

    For example this one:

    Revolution

    Reporter Julie Carlton senses the story of her life: A huge school of fish has appeared off the coast of Queensland. Over 400 different species are together on the run from a group of curiously murderous dolphins. Who or what made the meek animals into highly aggressive hunters? During her research, Julie meets Dr. Scott. The scientist invites them to visit his secret research laboratory deep in the Australian jungle. Julie realizes too late that she has fallen into a trap. Because there is an absolutely fatal danger lurking in the jungle.

    I'll link the overview page with his novels here, so you can see for yourself whether something of them interests you

  • I am very happy about your tips. It all sounds very exciting!

    Hello Irri

    Yes, yes, I really liked the real-time trilogy. I found it exciting, humorous, not too brutal and just awesome.

  • Did you then also start the instable trilogy (Volume 3 is coming soon)?

    My husband is also a Crichton fan but also enjoyed reading Grisham. Less because of the topics but because of the probably similar writing style.

    You might like Markus Sakey's Abnormal Trilogy. They should still be available through the Prime Lending Library.

    Hello breumel

    I have these two trilogies on my list and haven't read them yet. Have you started the instable trilogy yet? If so, is it as good as real time?

    I already read something from Grisham, but it was a long time ago.

  • So far I like unstable very much, I'm already waiting for volume 3. I find it almost as exciting as real-time.

  • Jenya, then I got confused. I think Thriller Mouse didn't like real time

    (Shake his head ) You didn't like Still von Zoran Drvenkar, did you?

    At Unabil I collect until all volumes have been published.

    Then the trilogy would be something for me too. Thanks !
