My favorite Crichton novel and one of my favorite novels of all time, mainly because the suspense is palpable, and most importantly, realistic. What I love about Crichton's novels is that he is able to not only explain complicated scientific and technological concepts in layman's terms, but he is also able to make these concepts believable without insulting the reader's intelligence. I was also impressed with the philosophical elements of the story, although I imagine some readers might consider this a too-obvious intrusion of the author's opinions. Normally, I get frustrated with authors who attempt this, but somehow it works with Crichton and he has an interesting perspective on the inherent power of scientific discovery. A fantastic techno-thriller and a fantastic story overall. I've read Jurassic Park about twenty times and I plan to read it twenty more in the future.

Easily one of the best science fiction books I have ever read. Far, far better than the movie. The discussion about genetic manipulation was fascinating - especially the "versions" of the animals.

In this novel, Crichton manages to seamlessly blend fact and fiction. The fact that this could possibly happen in real life makes this a highly entertaining story. As usual, the author inserts a cautionary tale about overstepping limits of technology and science. Overall, this is a really fun read.

I only read this cause it was lying around in some backpacker's. Glad I did - excellent science fiction, taking the trouble to elucidate science ideas along the way without boring the reader senseless. Of greater stature than the film. I'm surprised the 'Tyrannosaurus in the water looking like a huge croc' motif was not employed in the films - highly effective.

A thrilling novel, based on a wonderful concept involving DNA research, archeology, and man's ability to survive. Crichton is the best.

Jerassic Park is a great read from beginning to end. Right from the beginning Mr. Crichton kept me glued to the book. With a nice easy flow, this book will keep your interest even if you have already seen the terrific movie. In the book Mr. Crichton was able to paint a picture that would entice and intrigue almost any reader. His descriptions of those magnificent dinosaurs were brilliantly painted with so much detail and percision that I could almost feel that I stood there with these creatures. The story, as many already know from the movie, takes place on the Island of Isla Nublar, located near the coast of Costa Rica. It is here that multi-billionaire John Hammond has created a theme park whose main attraction is extinct dinosaurs grown from fossilized DNA and bred within the park walls. It's his intention to make lots of money from his huge assortment of dinosaurs, but before he can open the gates to Jerassic Park he needs the approval of a group of scientist. This group includes paleontologist Alan Grant, paleobotonist Ellie Sattler, mathematician Ian Malcolm and InGen's attorney Donald Gennaro. It wasn't long after the inspection group arrived that things started to go wrong. When the electric fence is disabled the body count starts to rise and the dinosaurs are left to run rampant throughout the park. The action is intense, and the atmosphere is spellbinding. So, in closing, this is, in my opinion a super science fiction book that is written by a wonderful, gifted author. Highly recommend.
