    With Crichton, it is always a gamble whether whatever strange and new idea has latched onto will overcome his overbearing personality. His assurance that science will always go wrong makes for easy potboiler plots, but you do get the feeling that if he were a caveman, he would mistrust...

    Jurassic park: a novel (Jurassic Park #1), Michael Crichton Jurassic Park is a 1990 science fiction novel written by Michael Crichton, divided into seven sections (iterations). A cautionary tale about genetic engineering, it presents the collapse of an amusement park showcasing genet...

    This is one of my favorite books of all time!!! I was way excited back then, 20 years ago, about the movie (minus the controversial scene portraiting San José, Costa Rica with a beach in the middle of it). Trust me. I am from Costa Rica and I live precisely in San José and we do...

    I always seem to forget how good Jurassic Park is. I blast through it once every few years, throw it on my shelf and the distance slowly makes me derisive, and then something forces me to pick it up again when my brain needs a little peanut butter and jelly dipped in hot chocolate, and...

    I can't believe how much I enjoyed this book. I guess I've always had my reservations because of what an impact the movie had on me as a kid. I was about 9 or 10 when the movie first came out and it blew my mind. As the book likes to point out, boys love dinosaurs and that was true. ...

    "Scientists are actually preoccupied with accomplishment. So they are focused on whether they can do something. They never stop to ask if they should do something." In 1993, Steven Spielberg brought dinosaurs to life on the big screen. At the time, Jurassic Park was so immensely pop...

    OK, so where to begin? I read this book for the first time when I was in 12th grade. We had to choose a book for a book report and I thought this would make a nice change from all the classics. Moreover, I've been a fan of the movie ever since I was a wee lass because I always had a...

    Science-at-the-brink-of-chaos fiction. Nonlinear dynamics had barely been invented, and yet here it was, gracing each chapter with a foreboding message of disintegration. Not literature, not amazing prose, but a true edge-of-your-seat thriller. ...

    As is most frequently the case, the book was better than the film. And it was a really cool movie. Directed by Stephen Spielberg. The section of Universal theme park in Orlando is fun too. Michael Crichton?s 1990 genetically powered biological thriller combines an action pac...

    What do you say about a concept that has become iconic? Jurassic Park has grown beyond Crichton's novel, into a movie, into a theme park attraction, into a thousand types of paraphernalia... In fact, it has become so popular that we forget the original work this concept came from. I...

    Ah, Jurassic Park, a keystone moment in movie history where dinosaurs were brought to the silver screen in such an indelible way. I don't think it would be inaccurate to say the movie franchise (especially with the most recent entry of Jurassic World) has significantly overshadowed...

    So, straight to it. Jurassic Park, the book, is inimitable, apart from a few clumsy attempts. One thing that differentiated it from its wannabes is that, unlike books about sharks, snakes or let's say, zombies, dinosaurs come in very varied shapes. This means that the way the casua...

    At the risk of offending what looks to be all my male goodreads friends who loved this (none of my female friends have read it, which is remarkable but probably not random), I couldn't finish it. It wasn't the multiple viewpoints or so-so prose, it was the science. I worked for awhile ...

    Like many, I loved the film, and indeed its sequels. Who doesn?t like dinosaurs and rip-roaring adventure? I hadn?t however read the book that started it all... Going through the pages, I couldn?t help trying to find the scenes that I knew so well. Most are there, but indeed i...

    "Welcome... to Jurassic Park!" Stars, I loved the movie! And yet it took me 3 whole months to finish the book. Now I don't remember much, just waiting for it to end. Maybe that's because I saw the movie as a little kid, and numerous times growing up. So every time I read it...

    Another masterpiece by Crichton. Can't believe it took me years to finally pick this one up and read it. I watched the movie adaptation when I was a kid, so I can't really remember much of the plot other than dinosaurs gone wild, and I'm sure I remember an elevator scene. Aside fro...

    I originally noticed this audiobook as a Youtube upload off to the side as I was listening to Prisoner of Azkaban for the umpteenth time. I've got The Lost World at home and I've never seen the films (not completely, anyway), so I figured Why the hell not? I haven't been a ginormous fa...

    Before I start my book review a have to say that i have never seen the movie, Jurassic Park. I have no idea how I haven't watched it yet, and I definitely want to watch it now that I have read the book, but this review will not be comparing the two since I have not seen the movie. I ...
