“Actually I was really enjoying this story...until the printouts of DNA structures. At that point the author lost me...lost the entertainment value, too. Pity. I still have to say I liked it even though I didn't finish it.”Fiona R wrote this review 9 days ago. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Jurassic Park is an amazing thriller novel that has been adapted into a film series as well. It chronicles a modern day island where genetic engineering has allowed prehistoric dinosaurs to once again, live on Earth. A series of unfortunate events places several explorers in the dangers of living with these dinosaurs. The novel brings up debatable issues such as genetic engineering, cloning, bioethics, etc. ”Jinkyu Kim wrote this review 2 weeks ago. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“Creepy. This book was very creepy.
It is about an island on which scientists have cloned dinosaurs, bringing them back to life... and then losing control of them...”
“The copy I received was absolutely rife with typos! Very stupid ones, like many "th"s being replaced with "m"s. Example: "I saw one over mere", as opposed to "there". This is an example of trying to put out too many reprints way too fast.
Aside from that, it was pretty good. A couple "Oh for ***** sake, Michael!" moments (like reading about a terrified baby raptor that was nuzzling into Tim for safety being graphically ripped apart while shrieking by adult raptors was a little much for a wimp like me). Although, I love it when he goes into his long technical explanations, like he did in Timeline, and most likely all his other books. It just makes everything more real and alive for me. And it made me really want to learn more about Chaos Theory.
A little long winded, and maybe because I grew up with the movie, it didn't really keep my attention as much as some other books I've read does. Some books (like the jack Reacher series), I can't go more than a day without reading at least a bit. This, if I went 2-3 days without reading it I was okay with that. All in all, I'm glad I read it as it is a modern classic and a rather enjoyable read. Just not the greatest book I've ever read.”
