...because he NAILED ecoparanoids - their blind wickedness, their amorality, their psychotic sense of infinite entitlement...all of it.

I especially liked a part where Crichton wrote in a character who was in every respect but name Martin (Estevez) Sheen and something bad happens to him.

I won't spoil the surprise.

Dr. Crichton was the modern CS Lewis. He helped bring SF into the realm of legitimate literature (along with some other authors - several of them conservatives). His insight into how cacogens think was preternatural.

It often seems like Crichton could read minds - inferior minds.
