I had somehow never read this one, and it seriously cut into yesterday's productivity levels because I had trouble putting it down! A fun romp of a story, and I found myself wondering how it was marketed when it was first published, because realizing that these were DINOSAURS could have been a pretty serious mind-blow! I had some issues, mainly the constant philosophizing whilst fending off velociraptors - seriously, is this when you would ⬇️

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) ACTUALLY be lecturing everyone on chaos theory??! VELOCIRAPTORS!!! The ending also felt awkward and abrupt. Still, all in all, this was a fun story that I had trouble putting down, and I am (perhaps foolishly, considering everything I need to get done today 😁) rolling straight into The Lost World. 4w
hannah-leeloo I loved these books. I agree Malcolm had interesting timing and was hard at times to keep up with his "theory". Happy reading hun ??? 4w

TheAromaofBooks @hannah-leeloo - I was just like, “Um, pretty sure you are dying of dinosaur wounds while velociraptors are nomming their way into your room so they can kill you and you are still TALKING ABOUT SCIENTIFIC THEORIES?! It just seemed unlikely! 😆 4w
hannah-leeloo @TheAromaofBooks yer I agree but he was very clever for a man becoming delusional hahaha. Alan Grant will always be my favourite 🦖 4w
Inkblotsandcoffeestains I agree with you on this! When I read it I laughed at how unlikely it would be to do anything but freak out! On another note though: I thought this was a million times better than the movie will ever be, which is saying a lot because I love the movie lol 4w
TheAromaofBooks @hannah-leeloo - yes I fell a little bit in love with Grant when I was reading this!! 😍 4w
TheAromaofBooks @Inkblotsandcoffeestains - it's been a really, really long time (like maybe 20 years lol) since I have seen the movie, so it seemed like a good time to read the book, when the movie wasn't really in my mind any more, if that makes sense. But now I'm interested to rewatch the movie and see how it stacks up! 4w
hannah-leeloo @TheAromaofBooks he's great in the films and books 😉 4w

Huge list of chores today and all I want to do is read Jurassic Park!!!

Eggs That‘s a big list!! Take some down time too 💗 4w
jb72 Good luck! I have a list too. I read Jurassic Park and did enjoy it. There were one or two things that annoyed me. 4w
Bookjunkie57 Add “Read one chapter of Jurassic Park“ to the list. 4w

TheAromaofBooks @Eggs - haha trust me, taking breaks to read is NOT something I struggle to do! 😂 4w
TheAromaofBooks @jb72 - I expect there will be some issues, but I'm pretty much looking for an action flick full of dinosaurs, so I should at least get that! It's been forever since I've seen the movie, so it's basically an all-new story for me. 4w
TheAromaofBooks @Bookjunkie57 - more like “Finish Jurassic Park today“ 😆 4w
jb72 @TheAromaofBooks I‘d like to know your thoughts when you‘re done. 4w
teainthelibrary I loveee Jurassic Park! Every time I reread it, I find it hard to put it down. 4w
TheAromaofBooks @teainthelibrary - I've pretended to do other things today but since I've read like 200 pages of Jurassic Park we can see how that's gone! 😆 4w

#LibraryHaul
Is it a problem when the librarians recognize your car and have your books on the counter already when you walk in?? 😁 Today I got the rest of the Haven Point series, a Denise Hunter book I haven't read yet, The Starless Sea (I've heard mixed reviews and wow it's a fat book), and Jurassic Park, which I have somehow never read. Should keep me busy for a couple of days!! See anything you've read/want to read??

This was fantastic and so different from the movie. Loved all the additional science bits. The writing style was compelling, kept up the tension. Overall, a fun page turner. Will probably pick this up again in a few years. Would highly recommend reading this if you liked the movie. This is better!

4.5/5 🌟

xxjenadanxx I keep meaning to read this because the movies are my favorites but I put it off. Maybe I'm scared of ruining the movies lol. 1mo
Naj @xxjenadanxx read it! It won't ruin the movies. It's slightly different and only adds to the film experience 1mo

Really different from the movie...lots more science here. That doesn‘t prevent a lot of great action and running from T-Rex and raptors of course. Fun...will need to read the sequel now to see what dinosaurs might have escaped to the mainland..l

My next #tenatatime #tbr pile. Number 26! I‘m excited to dive into some of these!

Hooked_on_books I read Jurassic Park when I was sixteen. I found it so riveting that I suddenly realized I was the only one awake in a dark house under just the puddle of light from a table lamp. I kept darting my eyes toward the window, waiting for the T Rex head to appear. What a fun book! 5mo
Lifeisasnap Nice TBR stack! 4mo
