Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is an excellent story that combines very well science with action/adventure. The science involved is truly awe-inspiring and is easily understood, without being boring. The action scenes are harrowing and very thrilling. The characters are quite interesting (especially mathematician Ian Malcolm). It's probably my all-time favourite novel. Strongly recommended!

I personally believe this to be Crichtons best book. The story and adventure are great; dinosaurs running amuk, etc, but one of the things that makes this a great book is its ability to link the events in the story with an intellectual statement about chaos theory and abuse of science. Ian Malcolm for example is such an amusing character and has so much that is interesting to say; he really usurps the narrative voice in many instances. Wonderful read on any level.

Cute and an interesting commentary on scientific progress. The plot is a little cheesy however. Overall nice light read. Would recommend timeline over this.

This book is not for sensitive heart. It's a essentiel book to every body like or love movies with the same names. It's not often nice dinosaur.

I love dinosaurs and science and this book helped fulfill both those needs. One of my Top 5 favourite books. Read ONLY this book ever.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book combines drama and suspense with science and a certain amount of moralizing. The book's major premise-using the DNA of long extinct species-is clever because it is so believable and thus frightening. The book plays upon the idea that if one tampers with Nature's most sacred mechanisms, there will be a price to pay and dangers that one can neither anticipate nor accommodate. The idea of a Caribbean park featuring such resurrected creatures provides a macabre and riveting fascination. The book and movie have been out for a while but nevertheless, if you haven't read this, it is still a good read.

Great book- far superior to the movies. Has fun adventure and interesting science. No matter what you think of the movies, you should still read this book. My only problem with this book is Ian Malcolm: he goes on such long, annoying an pointless rants that I wish he would've been killed by a raptor in the opening chapter of the book.

This is a wonderful book. One of the best that I've ever read. As most people know, this book stayed on the bestseller charts for three months, one of the longest times in book history.
I saw the movie before I read the book, so it was hard to adjust to all the changes from the movie and the book. Almost everything is different. Lex is younger than Tim, the Dilophosaurus was 10 feet tall, there was a scene in the book with Pterodactyls, etc. All in know is, the book is better than all three movies combined.
One more word, the book has so much more interesting parts than the movie, so much more action, so much more fun, so much more enjoyment! :) Five well deserved stars!
