In Jurassic Park, Michael Crichton taps all his mesmerizing talent and scientific brilliance to create his most electrifying technothriller. The Washington Post Book World Frighteningly real. It’ll keep you riveted. The Detroit News Full of suspense. NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER, From the author of Timeline, Sphere, and Congo, this is the classic thriller of science run amok that took the world by storm.

I was a little worried that going back to it more than 10-15 years after first reading it and having seen the movie probably 30 times that it wouldn't have the same edge. I couldn't have been more wrong. I knew that Crichton could write. I knew he was innovative, writing about powerful computers in books like Jurassic Park and Congo before they were even on the horizon. But I forgot just how good Crichton was at holding my attention.

This book is the perfect blend of reality and imagination. I applaud Michael Crichton- this concept is solid as well as reasonable. This book includes all of the character's perspectives, which I find a little confusing at times, but does an awesome job of telling the story. There is equality of all types, as there are two strong female characters, and the book takes place on an island near Costa Rica. The only thing is that this book includes lots of gore, people and animals dying, and a single sexual reference necessary for the storyline. I therefore recommend this to anyone ten years old and above.

This is the THE technothriller, THE dinosaur novel, and THE best of Michael Crichtons works. I saw the movie first and even though it's still great, I believe the book is far above it.

After a bunch of mysterious incidents in Costa Rica, a team of experts is summoned to the new island resort of a biotech company and soon discover it is home to genetically recreated dinosaurs. However, it soon becomes apparent that those running the park have arrogantly overestimated their control over nature. A corporate espionage plot is just the final nail in the coffin needed to tip the park into total chaos.

With scenes of heart-pounding action, terror, and suspense and also interesting characters and fascinating discussions of chaos theory and mankind's hubris, Crichton's novel is truly a great read.

Do not push off reading this book because you saw the movie! Steven Spielberg does a solid job at telling the story of the book without spoiling the book. I've never read a Crichton (I can't even pronounce his last name) book before this one. I've seen almost every movie that was inspired from his books though, so indirectly, I'm a fan of the guy. I had no idea how complex his story telling ability was. I have three more of his books lined up just waiting in my "Runner Ups for next read" list. I am so pumped to read them! If they're half as entertaining as this book was, I'll be satisfied.

I'll be honest with you though, it is very slowed paced the first 100+ pages, but once you get passed those pages, it shoots off like a freaking rocket and just won't let you jump off.

I felt like it was my duty to finish this book.

My only complaint is the epilogue, I wish it wasn't in the book. The chapter before the Epilogue ends the book beautifully. You felt an emotional connection with the characters, then the epilogue happens. I won't spoil anything other than the epilogue opens up for 'The Lost World' to begin, I feel obligated now to finish the story. My next read will have to be the sequel to this great story.

I read this years ago and loved it.  Helluva page turner.  So when my boss/client told me to pick a popular writer of thriller-type novels, and study one of them to get the tone he wants for his novel, I chose JP because I was familiar with it, not just from having read it but from multiple viewings of the film which I love.  A familiar work would allow me to study the structure without losing myself in the story.  I thought.  Turns out I was dead wrong about that.  I got caught up immediately.

Because I was interested in how it worked as narrated as well as how it read, I purchased the Audible version of it at a discount, and moved back and forth between it and the ebook.  (By the way, it's nice that at least some Kindles will play the audio right along with the ebook.  Audio broadens my understanding of a work, and listening while reading, though it slows down the latter dramatically, even though I normally listen at 1.5x the normal speed, is a highly immersive way of approaching the text.

But what about the book???  Yes, okay I'm getting to that.  The book.  Well... It still counts as a page-turner, no question.  I got caught up in the narrative so often that I found I had to consciously slow down and look for the things I wanted to study.  Crichton could tell a story!  And in that respect, he's like Tolkien, a damn fine storyteller, but kind of a crap writer.

Yeah, I'm sorry if there are Crichton fans out there foaming at the mouth, but the drawbacks of his writing are so clear, and in some cases so dire, that I couldn't  overlook them.  The most egregious problems are his characters.  None of them have real internal lives.  Crichton gives lip service to family, exes, jobs and the like, but they're not terribly developed.  But this is a thriller, you say, they don't have to be.  And I would agree up to a point.  But consider:

John Hammond is a joke.  He's an uber rich guy who exists for two reasons: First to pay for and supervise the development of the park, and second, to be annoyed when people tell him the park isn't going to work.  He's so obtuse that when Ian Malcolm explains things to him, his consistent response is to ask the rest of the people in the room what Malcolm is talking about.  There's nothing about him that isn't cardboard, and even the cardboard doesn't ring true.
Ian Malcolm, or as I like to call him Information Dump Malcolm, exists to explain things.  From the get go, all he ever does is lecture.  He doesn't have conversations, he doesn't connect with anyone.  He's like an AI.  Say: "Chaos Theory," and off he goes, explaining it.  Say: "Look, real dinosaurs," and you get pages of explanation about what's wrong with science today. After a while I just skimmed over his dialogue. 
The kids:  Two of the most utterly pointless, useless characters ever penned.  Lex is so annoying that I kept hoping the T-Rex would gobble her up like an hors d'oeuvre.  She never shuts up, never does what she's told, screams, whines, and makes endless noise when everyone is telling her to be quiet or the dinosaurs will eat them.  She's an insufferable know-it-all, who knows virtually nothing about anything, and doesn't really want to know anything.  All she wants to do is play "pickle" and whine about how none of this is fun and she's hungry.  The only time she's bearable is when she's unconscious.  Tim is a virtual non-entity, but at least he's an improvement over his sister.
Everybody else: Almost totally interchangeable except for their area of expertise.
I don't really feel like I'm being harsh here either.  I'm willing to give props for a compelling story told in such a break-neck fashion that had I not been paying close attention to the text, I might never have caught these problems. Or at least they might not have gotten up my nose so completely.  What you have is a decent thriller with a great plot and a damn good hook: cloning dinosaurs.  It was timely then and it still is, it plays to our fears and our desires, and Crichton knows how to manipulate both.

I think I'm pretty much finished with this book now, I doubt I'll ever need to read it again unless I want to remind myself of the spare, efficient style of it.  Crichton proved to me that the advice about dialogue -- use "said;" the eye skips right over it -- is completely true.  His work is an education for any writer, but particularly those who are going to write fast-paced stories.  

He tells a great story, and that's really the bottom line.

This is a very good book, way better than the movie could ever hope to be, but the mass market paperback version is complete garbage. The spelling and grammar mistakes in the book are unimaginable - periods in the middle of sentences, all kinds of extra commas that didn't appear in the original version, dozens of instances of "th" being replaced by "m" (for instance, "mat" instead of "that" and "mere" instead of "there"). The book is incredibly well written but the printer royally f***ed up their job. Buy it at Barnes & Noble and get a copy where you don't constantly have to stop and figure out WTF is supposed to be written there.
