From the Publisher:
An astonishing technique for recovering and cloning dinosaur DNA has been discovered. Creatures extinct for eons now roam Jurassic Park, and all the world can visit them for a price--until something goes wrong.
With extremely well-preserved bits of DNA from dinosaurs, a scientist plans to create a theme park of cloned dinosaurs. When the island that houses the theme park suffers a power outage, the dinosaurs run rampant, and the humans must run for their lives. This novel was the basis for the 1993 blockbuster film of the same name.
Customer Reviews of Jurassic Park
Another great sci-fi from Michael Crichton2/3/2006
Reading this book really opened me up to the scientific world. Micheal Crichton is possibly the best sci-fi/thriller writer in the world. In Jurassic Park,he delivers another wonderful story. Jurassic Park, the book, is definitely better than the movie. The book has a deeper plot, along with more cynical character personalities. So if you're looking for a good read, or you didn't quite understand the movie, then Jurassic Park is definitely for you.
