Jurassic Park
Jurassic Park | Michael Crichton
Before seeing Jurassic World film this June read the original, multimillion copy No. 1 bestselling thriller that inspired the first major motion picture Jurassic Park. On a remote jungle island, genetic engineers have created a dinosaur game park.An astonishing technique for recovering and cloning dinosaur DNA has been discovered. Now one of mankind's most thrilling fantasies has come true and the first dinosaurs that the Earth has seen in the time of man emerge.But, as always, there is a dark side to the fantasy and after a catastrophe destroys the park's defence systems, the scientists and tourists are left fighting for survival...With this masterful cross of science fiction and action-adventure, Michael Crichton created one of the biggest bestsellers of all time, turned by Steven Spielberg into the highest grossing blockbuster ever in 1993.

I'm withdrawing this falling apart copy of Jurassic Park from my library's collection that is old enough to say “Soon to be a motion picture“.

vivastory It'll be interesting to see how they adapt it 😂😂 6h

Don't know if my many posts about it gave it away but I loved this book!!! It had all the action, adventure and dinosaurs of the movie, but with more depth 🦕 Not to mention the terrifyingly intelligent Raptors actually being terrifyingly intelligent 🦖
There were so many edge of your seat moments, and the background it gave was amazing. If you loved the movie, then I really think you'll love this too 😊

#TBRChallenge: LOVING 🦕Jurassic Park🦖 more and more with every minute I listen too ❤
He's moved away from the habit of sciencing up the story a little bit, so it's easier to follow, and we're getting to meet some of the iconic characters from the movie now which is exciting 😁 the difference between the book and the film are immense so far but then I'm not even 3 hours in yet...
Looking forward to where we might go from here! 🧡💛💙

#TBRChallenge: got a start on a new #Audiobook, and I'm pretty excited about it 🎧
So far (about an hour in) it's completely different the movie and Michael Crichton is loading it up with as much science as possible, like he does in his other works.
Its annoying because the science can be a bit much and it's a lot to wade through, but then he creates some magnificent characters and his scenery crafting is stunning! ❤🧡💛
1 hour down, 14 to go 😅

Mehso-so

So this book. Oh man. I really enjoyed it, except when I didn‘t. The characters were not well developed. A huge point was made of explaining why all the adult animals are female and then the T-Rex is referred to throughout as male. Because deep-seated sexism? I listened and read and Scott Brock‘s effeminate portrayal of Dr Wu was a confusing choice. It was a fun ride but reading it let me sit with the story long enough to see the frayed edges.

I had a hard time getting into this book, felt like I knew all the story beats from the film, but along the way parts of it encapsulated me into the suspense and thrill. I loved how they brought scientific concepts to an accessible point for readers to understand. But the irritating characters sort of brought it down for me. A solid read, I‘d say between 3 and 4 stars!

Jurassic Park is one of my favorite movies of all time. It's difficult to read a book when you know the movie based off of it so well. I had expectations and visions that didn't quite turn out as expected and it was difficult not to immediately picture the movie characters. That being said, I loved the scientific detail and the story overall is a work of genius.
