    "Jurassic Park is a classic adventure story that we know and love. The movie was awesome but as usual, nothing beats the book and your imagination! Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton is a classic and a must read! "

    "Jurassic Park is one of my all time favorite books. When I was a kid I was obsessed with the movie, but when I picked up this book for the first time I didn't realize what I had gotten myself into. The world written here is much more fleshed out than in the movie and I found myself feeling like a kid again."

    "I remember picking up this book when I was in my teens, shortly after the movie had come out, and although I was an avid reader, Crichton's words didn't really seem to grab me too well. I put the book down after a couple chapters. Fast-forward to today, and with the resurgence of the Jurassic World franchise, I decided to give the book another try. Wow! Yes, the first couple chapters were still slow and admittedly boring (although they were necessary for world-building,) but if I had kept on with my reading as a teenager, I would have had a wholly different opinion of the book. A few chapters in, and the action, the internal intrigue, all of that was starting to take shape and began directing the plot, which made the book much more engaging. And, while the movie is definitely based on the book, the book and the movie are different enough that you can enjoy both separately."

    "Jurassic Park is one of the all time great books of a mix of non fiction and fiction. Whether you believe in the bible or not, this book and movie series will draw you in year after year."

    "Everyone knows Jurassic Park! Reading this book will not disappoint. It really is one of the best novels I have read that features monsters (or dinosaur monsters)! I will be giving this book to my teenage son to read when I am finished so we can chat about the differences between movies and books. Great read!"

    "This is a wonderful tale and take on what could have been and what could be. Though we have all heard of the movie, the book differs slightly and makes you imagine Jurassic Park in ways the movie did not. Well worth a read and enjoyment."

    "The book was infinitely better than the movie and I'm surprised at how much they changed page to screen. My next read will have to be the sequel to this great story."

    "Many adults have seen the Jurassic Park movies, but they are truly missing out if they haven't read the book! This is a true classic from Michael Crichton. I felt like I was on the edge of my seat while reading, which is rarely attainable by a novel. One of the best, most exciting adventure books I've read!"

    "The Jurassic Park novel came out in 1990, and I'd wager that it was one of the most popular books of the decade. The film is a classic and the novel is right up there with the film. It's a great book and I'd recommend reading it to see how the film was adapted from it. "

    "Not much of a fan of the movies but this book is a real treasure. Steven has a way of telling a story through words that few can come close to. The writing here allows you to really place yourself in the story."
  • Luis Alberto Madrigal

    "So many people watch the movie without ever touching the source material, and indeed, they often don't even know it exists or that the movie wasn't an original idea to begin with. The book goes far more into the science (or pseudoscience/technobabble) portions of the biotechnological aspects, which I think many readers love--I know I do."

    "dont push of this book because you saw the movie even though Steven Spielberg done a excellent job with telling the story from the book and not spoiling the book . Micheal Crichton is a great writer and his story telling is complex."

    "This is the book that started the series and the movie series and...DINOSAURS COMING BACK TO LIFE!!! This series has brought to life the imagination of children young and old for years. Not only were these dinosaurs real to us, but the technology that went into making a park as such and then to duplicate it shows how history can be repeated if we are not careful. Fun scary and great for all ages!!! "

    "While this is an excellent book, it isn't filled with Monsters. I was looking for something with fantasy and monster elements, not Dinosaurs. I will keep searching. "

    "Some people will tell you that Jurassic Park is one of the few cases where the movie is better than the book. But don't believe them! Michael Chrichton's novel is where the fantastic story began. And though it's not enlived by CGI effects, the book is every bit as riveting as the movie. "

    "When my son caught dinosaur fever, he was all about Jurassic Park. It was nice to revisit the film after so many years, but I also figured it was time to read the book that lead to it all. I was not disappointed. Where the movie shines with special effects, the book shines with intriguing descriptions and true tension that kept me turning the pages well past my own bedtime. "
