Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I’ve been reading a lot of lesfic romance lately. I knew it was time for a break when I couldn’t keep the characters or angsty stories straight. I had picked up Jurassic Park a few months ago during one of Audible’s 2-for-1 sales but hadn’t gotten around to it but this seemed like the perfect opportunity to cleanse my reading palate.
Like just about everyone else, I’ve seen the movie based on the book several times. I never really feel like watching it but once it gets going, it’s intense and action packed and I end up loving it. The book was sort of like that but filled with much more detail. Detail and saying the same things several times for no apparent reason. But I still had a good time listening to the book. I really enjoyed the differences in how the story unfolded – although it’s been years since I’ve seen the film and there might have been less left out than I remember…
Either way, I definitely recommend reading the book. You can always skim over the science stuff until you get to the awesome dino stuff.
