Jurassic Park
Average rating
4.8 / 5
Movie enthusiast perspective
December 6th, 2015
Absolutely gripping. I have been a huge fan of the movies, often rewatching them a couple times a year. It has been so nice to finally sit down and read the book. Even though seeing the movie first offers spoilers, I was sucked in and bound from the first sentence. I HIGHLY recommend this read.

Jurasic Park the novel and Jurassic Park the movie might be two completely different beasts but both are still as awesome as can be.

Love the movie. Love the book.

The last time I read this book, I was a teenager. I enjoy reading Jurassic Park now as I did then. The movie is just as good, no matter how times I've seen it.

Boring
May 2nd, 2015
Quite a dry book, with stilted dialogue and predictable, one-dimensional characters. Had to force myself to read the whole thing.

It's almost addicting

An exciting science fiction that inspired a cult movie. Surely one to read if you're a fan of the movies.

I read this book a couple of years ago and I'm reading it again. I'm glad I decided to do it. I forgot how much I loved it.

If only the movie had the same plot
January 3rd, 2015
A brilliant adventure with incredible attention to detail. My hope is that some day a director with vision will relaunch this book as a movie that more closely resembles Crichton's vision and story.

Amazing plot & suspense

In my opinion one of the best science fiction books of all time. Heart-stopping suspense and in-depth scientific explanations. 5 stars.

A must read
December 16th, 2014
Its a great book. If you have seen the movie first the book tells a story thats ends diffrently and remains a joy to read. The ending seems rushed Crichton hits a great stride then simply wraps it up too quickly. Hamonds ending feals "phoned in". But hands down its a great read.

This is a great book! If you loved the movie and are looking for a good book in your free time, look no further! You will adore this story! The story starts off slow with build up and gives hints to InGen's secret, but be patient, soon the story becomes a real page turner. The most impressive aspect of this book is the ability to convey something the movie barely touches: fear. The terror you feel when you know you are helpless to prevent something. Make no mistake, Jurassic park, "spared no expense".
