"Hey, have you read Michael Crichton's book Timeline yet?"

"Yeah, it was pretty intense. And he somehow made history and quantum physics actually interesting. I know, weird..."

He died at the age of 66.
Stephanie: When I heard that a book report on The Andromeda Strain by Michael Crichton was extra credit for Biology class, I thought that was badass!

Jessica: I know, right?! I might actually try to get extra credit!

Stephanie: Our teach must be cool as fuck.
