Michael Crichton

Somehow filmmakers are able to adapt the work of Michael Crichton pretty well, unlike Stephen King. Probably because they get more room to play with the settings and technology. Most of the movies are not critically acclaimed but they enjoyed box-office success.

According to an article published in Telegraph, in 1994 Crichton became the only creative artist to enjoy chart-topping success in America with a film, a television series and a novel, all at number one at the same time.

Following is the list of novels by Michael Crichton adapted into films:

The Andromeda Strain
Dealing: Or the Berkeley-to-Boston Forty-Brick Lost-Bag Blues
The Carey Treatment (A Case of Need)
The Terminal Man
The First Great Train Robbery
Jurassic Park
Rising Sun
Disclosure
Congo
The Lost World: Jurassic Park
Sphere
The 13th Warrior (Eaters of the Dead)
