Unless your species evolved sometime after 1993 when Jurassic Park hit theaters, you're no doubt familiar with this dinosaur-bites-man disaster tale set on an island theme park gone terribly wrong. But if Speilberg's amped-up CGI creation left you longing for more scientific background and ... well, character development, check out the original Michael Crichton novel. Although not his best book (get ahold of sci-fi classic The Andromeda Strain for that), Jurassic Park fills out the film version's kinetic story line with additional scenes, dialogue, and explanations while still maintaining Crichton's trademark thrills-'n'-chills pacing. As ever, the book really is better than the movie. --Paul Hughes
Bioengineers clone 15 species of dinosaurs and establish an island preserve where tourists can view the large reptiles; chaos ensues when a rival genetics firm attempts to steal frozen dinosaur embryos, and it's up to two kids, a safari guide and a paleontologist to set things right. PW called this, "A scary, creepy, mesmerizing technothriller with teeth."

One doesn't have to write much on the subject. Simply put Jurassic Park is a masterpiece. Only complaint is the odd spelling mistake towards the later part of the book. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Robert

Great read! The movie is one of my favorites of all time and though Malcolm was one of my favorite characters in the movie, he becomes extremely repetitive in the novel. Read morePublished 7 months ago by C.S.
Cute and an interesting commentary on scientific progress. The plot is a little cheesy however. Overall nice light read. Would recommend timeline over this.Published 15 months ago by Oren
