Eaters of the Dead/The 13th Warrior – Crichton Cast 1


Welcome, verily, to the Crichton Cast!

This week, we travel back to the times of Vikings to review, discuss, and disect Michael Crichton’s 1976 novel Eaters of the Dead, and it’s 1999 film adaptation, The 13th Warrior!

Listen as we discuss his take on one of the “classic bores”, Beowulf. We talk about the story, the characters, the ‘verily’s, and whether or not Crichton accomplished what he set out to do with this novel.

We also talk about the film adaptation, where it hits, and where it misses. Listen to find out where the host agree and disagree on this movie!

Finally, we dive into the story BEHIND the story, to find out why he chose to write a book so far outside his normal realm, and how he went about doing it.

So sit back, grab a glass of strong honey mead, and enjoy!

If you are reading this you must be a fan of Michael Crichton just as we are. Whether you love the science in his writing, the adventurous places it takes you or just fell in love with dinosaurs on the big screen we will have something for you.

Every two weeks, in a mini-series format Steve and Eric will discuss a book of Michael Crichton’s which was made into a movie. Compare both mediums, discuss the good and bad, our takes on what worked and interesting facts. Listen in and discuss with us!
