    1. I m going to confess something really dorky and a bit embarassing about myself.When I was in Jr High I loved Michael Crichton and John Grisham LOVED them At the time, I had read almost all of their books.Imagine me, twelve years old, huge coke bottle glasses, puff paint scrunchie, catholic school uniform, pulling The Andromeda Strain out of my desk during silent reading Are you kidding me I even did an oral book report in seventh grade on The Client My teacher thought it was inappropriate, littl [...]


    2. I read this book a kerzillion times when I was 12, not only because a plot that involves dinosaurs coming to life is tewtally OFF DA CHAIN, but also because it excited me to read all the curse words Great book it is what it is, a straight up thriller, and it definitely delivers Suspense, gore, mad science, and characters that are well drawn enough to make you care whether or not they make it out alive Also, I think this is the first book I ever read in which people get all out DEVOURED Like Scot [...]


    3. Michael Crichton s Jurassic Park is Actually Science Porn Disguised as Dinosaur Fiction and Oh So Good So Much Fun Saying that about a book where than half the characters get eaten by prehistoric predators brought back to life through genetic engineering might seem weird But then, I have never kept my love for dinosaurs a secret When I first received the book from Online Books Outlet, I wasn t expecting much from it However, a cursory glance later, I had spotted graphs in it They intrigued the [...]


    4. How does a book with a concept that seems to be perfectly matched for my taste fail to garner than 3 stars From the get go, this book in particular was at a big disadvantage since I have seen the iconic movie that was made from it than 20 times, so I invariably compare it to the movie Sadly, this is one of the cases where the movie is superior to the book The movie is exactly like this book, but Spielberg smartly cut out the fat that makes this pulp sci fi not as appetizing as it should be Is [...]


    5. When I read Jurassic Park, I was hooked within, I think, five pages It is just an amazing book I watched the movie afterwards and, by reading the book before, so many things became clear, even though I ve seen the movie about 10 times Things that wereNOTin the book were that the girl Lex, was a complete coward, worse than J Bruce Ismay while in the movie she was smart and used the computers to reboot the park In the book, Timmy did that, and he was amazing in the book He was quite the little her [...]


    6. I actually read both of these books separately Both are written by Michael Crichton Both are pieces of science fiction and contain quite a lot of action Jurassic Park was quite interesting and it talks about the chaos that accompanies the resurrection of the dinosaurs Congo is about a band of explorers who have ventured into the Congo jungle They are continuously attacked by a band of gorilla like creatures that are very smart and very brutal.


    7. Actually read this for the first time in high school, senior year, as a part of the Bio Honors course I was taking I thought the movie was pretty lame, so was not looking forward to reading the book To my astonishment, I absolutely fell in love with it, and Michael Crichton, and re read it and The Lost World when I get the opportunity Very good read even if, like me, you dont have much of an imagination.


    8. Jurassic Park rating 3.5 5terlalu banyak penjelasan ilmiah sampe bosen dan ku skip halaman yang bikin bosen Congo rating 4 5ini menurutku lebih seru petualangannya interaksi amy dan peter sangat menggemaskan kota zinj yg hilang bikin penasaran sip deh


    9. Great book,and lots of action,the perfect book for a person like me.I would recomend this book to people who are looking a book with lots of fantasy and really intense adventure.


    10. Unless you ve been living under a rock for the last 20 or so years, you already know the premise of Jurassic Park To quote one of my favorite lines from the movie God creates dinosaurs God destroys dinosaurs God creates man Man destroys God Man creates dinosaurs Dinosaurs eat man Woman inherits the earth Well, there you have it in a nutshell a wealthy eccentric named John Hammond buys an island in Costa Rica and turns it into Jurassic Park a living biological preserve for genetically engineered [...]


    11. I had seen the movie many years ago, but I still remember it like if it was yesterday, I really loved it, and I was stunned to see how different the book is I liked both a lot, but this is one of the rare cases where a movie wins the battle In the movie I got the feeling that the dinosaurs weren t treated as the monsters they re treated in the book I mean people are in danger, and obviously it s a to kill or be killed situation, but I think they were understanding towards the animal in this cas [...]


    12. Author Michael ChrictonGenre Sci Fi, Action, adventureMelihat dinosaurus adalah keinginan semua orang di masa kecil Hidup bersama dinosaurus adalah impian semua orang di semua umur Apa yang terjadi jika semua itu menjadi kenyataan InGen Corp yang dipimpin John Hammond berhasil menemukan gen dinosaurus yang terdapat pada fosil nyamuk Dengan kecanggihan teknologi yang dimiiiki perusahaan, mereka merekayasa gen tersebut hingga melahirkan kehidupan hewan yang telah punah jutaan tahun yang lalu Ambis [...]


    13. I ve been wanting to read this for as long as I could remember I was always into the Jurassic Park films, and was so excited to find out that they were based off of books what else is new, right However, after years of trying and failing to find the book, I was ecstatic to learn that the book was finally available at my library where I actually work, so luck may be it and I was able to take it out.When I first started reading the book, I was hesitant, worried that it wouldn t be as good as the m [...]


    14. I enjoyed it, but not as much as the movie The characters were very flat and there were no real arcs for them Many were underutilized, like Ellie Sattler It was almost as though she was there because there had to be a woman, but once everything started happening, she was sidelined Lex, the little girl, was annoying and contributed nothing but constant whining and nay saying this may be realistic, but it doesn t make for fun reading Ian Malcolm was similar he didn t do much of anything, just kept [...]


    15. After reading this book I have come to the profound and well thought out conclusion that dinosaurs are cool.Awesome book It was fast paced and the suspense was so tense that I almost keeled over a few times whilst reading this Chrichton has the perfect balance of action, information and interesting characters In my opinion, characters in an action thriller type book should not overshadow the plot and so it is in this novel The characters are likeable and they all had their distinct voices and pe [...]


    16. More like 3.5, there were some parts that felt drawn out but the combination of science, math and suspense was pretty awesome, I think I maybe a Crichton fan, I m going to have to read one book to test it.Anyway, I obviously know the story line and the movie has always been one of a my favorites, but the book add a lot to it Dr Alan Grant is a better character in the book and I liked the fact that there was a romance going on It was refreshing Dr Sattler is a young woman in her twenties and isn [...]


    17. I saw the film first, and it was scariest at the level of the thought that some rich guy from US would actually do this The whole creating of the park, I mean.When reading the original book however the interesting part was how the big sister with intelligence and courage was the one who knew and was the savvy one who saved the poarty at one point while the kid brother was little and natural kid in the film they changed it to big brother saves and knows while little sister is silly.A similar chan [...]


    18. Is Michael Crichton always this preachy This is the second Crichton thriller I have read and the second time I have come away noticing his anti science rants and preachy tone This time the anti science diatribe was delivered by the character of Malcolm, who only seems to be in the book for his chapter long anti science rant I ve heard he is even worse with this in State of Fear.The book itself is a decent techno thriller It was enjoyable and moved along swiftly One thing I did notice, though, wa [...]


    19. A really cool read Certainly different enough from the movie to warrant reading In hindsight Jeff Goldblum was an even greater Ian Malcolm then I thought He really made a lot out of the character despite the diminished role in the film I couldn t help but notice that every woman in the book was completely inept, and either endangered or caused the death of someone else hmmmm Kind of ironic when you consider the women inherit the earth line in the movie The book, besides having the draw of dinosa [...]


    20. Jurassic Park is packed full of interesting concepts cloning, chaos theory, and nature s ability to adapt for survival, not to mention the conflict between our awe and curiosity toward nature and our exploitative and controlling attitudes toward it This was all around a great science thriller, drizzling the scientific food for thought onto a hugely entertaining backdrop It s been a long time since I read the book, but I feel like I have to give it 5 stars because of how much I loved it in high s [...]


    21. Michael Crichton made an excellent career out of taking someone else s novel and turning it into a screen play which he then got published masquerading as real books.That s a little unfair really for the genre Crichton is writing in, he is near the top of the tree But there is a sense at times that his eye has always been on the movie deal, not on the book for the sake of the writing.And this is nowhere better exemplified than here Every part that isn t meticulous research regurgitated is an act [...]


    22. I was afraid that since I watched the movie so many times, the book wouldn t hold the surprise factor for me, but it did There are parts of the plot in the book missing from the movie although I think the movie is done very well anyway There are mathematical and scientific theorems presented in the book than I would usually be interested in, but surprisingly enough I didn t mind them I think it helped add believability to the story and lent support for how this new world came to be Malcolm s ph [...]


    23. I distinctly remember reading this book right before the movie came out I always get out of movies when I read the book first I remember it being one of the most compelling reads I ve experienced Then when I saw the movie I was absolutely blown away The film is a masterpiece of movie entertainment The special effects were flawless and really transported you into another place and time They matched the images in my head when I read the book and then some After seeing the special effects my first [...]


    24. This book is lots of fun But Crichton probably should have stopped at this volume Subsequent work simply did not live up to this.The tale is irresistible Humans meet dinosaurs Human rationality presumes that it can contain the meeting of humans and dinosaurs and keep things antiseptic and safe Technology moves faster than reflection on its use Whedn I first read this quite a few years back , it was like a roller coaster ride and the same thing with the movie Lots of excitement, lots of questions [...]


    25. Jurassic Park has always been a favorite movie of mine, and the book is just as good as the film The story centers on a theme park where people can see real dinosaurs, created from DNA found in ancient amber But the dinosaurs aren t content to be an attraction, and what happens when they escape is completely terrifying.This is Michael Crichton at his best The book isn t preachy or annoying, and it reads fast What s , the plot, while far fetched, seems like something that could happen That s tha [...]


    26. If you loved the movie, this book will blow you out of the water The movie was based off this book, and it s a good thing I saw the movie before I read this or I would ve been disappointed The book is much different from the movie, but in all the right ways There is much adventure in this book and you absolutely have to read this You all have an idea of how Jurassic Park goes, but you will still be blown away I can t say any Just read this book because you will not be disappointed.


    27. This is my favorite book It s bound together so intricately and perfectly that I wouldn t want to change it in any way I find that the theories and possiblities in this book create an endless world The story is detailed and suspenseful It gives you terror and backs it up with knowledge, the best way to so in my opinion I ve read this book many times and I can never get enough of the characters and the dinosaurs It s one of those What if books that I think are incredible Truly, the movie does it [...]


    28. This book review is on the book Jurassic Park Jurassic Park was a great book I really liked this book because it was about dinosaurs This book was about two kids who s parents got a divorce and went to their grandfathers island called Jurassic Park On Jurassic Park their grandfathers made clones of different types of dinosaurs One thing went wrong with this experience though The power went out in Jurassic Park allowing the dinosaurs to get lose because their electric fenceds went off You should [...]


    29. In honor of the passing of Michael Chrichton, I am adding this book to my favorites list I read this book long before the movie was ever made and long before DNA analysis was in the headlines of pop culture magazines and local news casts This is a fun and exciting read it s helped me pass enough time in airports and has teeth than the movie does Chrichton wrote many other books, but none are as engrossing as this one Great literature Nah Fun Oh yeah


    30. Well, I was holding off to wait on this one, because I wanted my 100th BOOK to be icing on the cake I dare say that was a good call Anyways, I don t feel obligated to tell you the story, because I think everyone knows how it goes And one thing The book is SOOO much better than the movie though when I think about it, the movie stayed pretty true to the book but I guess that s no shocker, now, is it
