the Dinosaurs feared the T Rex Wade Wilson, Deadpool 2016 Velociraptor, he s gonna find yaHe s gonna kill ya, he s gonna eat ya Velociraptor, Kasabian Welcome to Jurassic Park s reviewI remember back when I was a kid, my dad rented a VHSyes, the legendary VHS was real, young onescassette of an English movie I think I was seven years old and my favorite pastimes were collecting gravel, screaming and making my sister s life hell Watching movie was not one of them And that movie changed it all And no, It wasn t Citizen Kane It was the legendary Jurassic Park But it took me almost fifteen years to pick up the original novelI am still not sure why it took me so longAnd surprisingly, it was not what I expected Story When advanced genetic engineering breaks the very basic laws of nature by creating an extinct life form, billionaire John Hammond decides to turn that discovery into the best damn attraction the world has ever witnessed A Dinosaur parkBut the investors of this ambitious project gets spooked because of some recent events and seeks a second opinion They invite Paleontologist, Alan Grant, paleobotanist graduate student, Ellie Sattler, famous mathematician and chaos theorist, Ian Malcolm, and a lawyer representing the investors, Donald Gennaro for a guided tour of the park The unique voice in this story belongs to Ian Malcolm who spends most of the time warning others about the park.So everyone went ahead with the tour andWell, let s just say things didn t go as plannedHey, I ve watched the movie gazillion times I don t have to read this book Stop right there The book is so very different from the movie The movie is a visual spectacular that tells an adventurous science fiction story While watching the movie, you will be shoutingyay, Dinosaurs The novel almost paints the same story, but its focus is on something else entirely The science The very idea of creating life out of nothing, the dangers of unchecked development and the proof that you can not control the uncontrollable Also, there is a healthy dose of chaos theory, Dragon curves, Dinosaur s evolution and survival Throughout the story, you ll be likeOverall, Jurassic Park is one helluva a ride It might not be as thrilling as the movie, but it is a hell meaningful and informative This is one of my favorite books of all time I was way excited back then, 20 years ago, about the movie minus the controversial scene portraiting San Jos , Costa Rica with a beach in the middle of it Trust me I am from Costa Rica and I live precisely in San Jos and we don t have a dang beach around.I am sure that Spielberg wouldn t do that kind of mistake if he d need to portrait Paris, France, but a dang capital city in a third world country Who cares Well, I care, I am from that precise third world country When you would have your capital cities portraited in a wrong stereotypical way, you will understand me And don t get me wrong I love the movie and I am fan of Spielberg s work, just pointing out my feeling about that scene that even in the book happens in another different place.I love the book, since the author, Michael Crichton, lived a lot of time in my country, Costa Rica, and he fell in love so much with our culture and geography that he wanted to use it as background for one of his novels.The novel became his most famous book In the book, you can realize how well Crichton indeed knew about our places using specific real places like the Cabo Blanco Biologic Reserve and the Puntarenas Hospital Monse or Sanabria You don t came out with places like that with your quick internet search You need to live here to know things like that Of course, Nublar Island is a made up place but hey, no problem there, it s like Gotham City or Metropolis, always there are space for another fictional island in literature.I was lucky to get my paperback copy of Jurassic Park just when the movie was on its hype 20 years ago, since thanks to that it has the logo of the film see I don t hate the movie, just questioned that dang scene.I love my edition of the book since never they published ever again the book with that cover, so it s one my priceless posessions in my library An insanely popular sci fi novel with dinosaurs set on my country Oh, yes I had to love that book Rereading for obvious reasons D D D D So, straight to it Jurassic Park, the book, is inimitable, apart from a few clumsy attempts One thing that differentiated it from its wannabes is that, unlike books about sharks, snakes or let s say, zombies, dinosaurs come in very varied shapes This means that the way the casualties meet their end is just as variable Michael Crichton props up his last act with inspired flair and experienced cunning He knows that the action in this book will go only so far, just like last acts in an all out comedy movie WILL be lame, unless something rash and daring is undertook The soliloquy for us of Ian Malcolm are just like the morphine that the doctor prescribed for him Malcolm s rants about science are dishonest but it s all in good jest The verisimilitude of Isla Nublar is out of this world The landscape, the computers, the dinosaurs, the genetic restraints that shackles the dinosaurs, and lastly, the human protagonists in the book, are so well imagined, arranged spatially, manipulated to create tension and pacing, that I recognize the hand of a master entertainer at work Spielberg, eat your heart out The ultimate slap in the face of conventional science fiction is the fact, that Jurassic Park takes place in our timeline How gutsier can you get The book is now half forgotten, but that will change when the next wave of genetic manipulation arrives Jurassic Park can have quite a few interpretations that pertain to civics, science, philosophy, and of course maths sexy cousin, Chaos Theory The only thing that matters though, is that the book makes good on its promise and gives us than what it says on the tin pure fun. I always seem to forget how good Jurassic Park is I blast through it once every few years, throw it on my shelf and the distance slowly makes me derisive, and then something forces me to pick it up again when my brain needs a little peanut butter and jelly dipped in hot chocolate, and I am forced to admit that Jurassic Park is a damn fine novel Sure it s packed with Michael Crichton s usual band of screenplay adaptation friendly archetypes, sure it derives much of its plot and thought from Arthur Conan Doyle, HG Wells and Mary Shelley, sure it s pulpy and quick to read, but those things aren t necessarily bad, and Crichton does enough to elevate or alter these elements to make Jurassic Park a fine piece of popular Sci Fi in its own right Yes, the characters are there to serve the plot Each has an important skill or skill set Muldoon is the Great White Hunter, Malcolm is the chaos theoretician, Grant and Saddler are the paleontologists, Tim and Lex are the kids in peril, etc., etc and who they are and the how their stories unfold are easily altered or even cut entirely in the shift from book to screen because they are less important than their skills, yet Crichton still manages to make them likable enough that we care about what happens to them None of the characters are dynamic or round, but their static flatness makes them no less interesting than a character like Ian Fleming s James Bond They may not be as memorable as Bond although Ian Malcolm has some pretty impressive popularity for a supporting character , but they don t really have to be We can forget them after the book is over, then enjoy them anew when we go back to the book later They aren t Hamlet, but they work.And yes Crichton borrows liberally, but he borrows from the stars He uses Shelley s classic creation gone mad trope, and he blatantly thieves from Doyle s Lost World and Wells The Island of Dr Moreau, but he does it with style Granted it s a pulpy style, but that pulpiness is an asset It takes those pieces he s combined and lets the reader catch mere glimpses of them outside the roller coaster car as he takes us into drops and curves and spins and loop de loops The speed and pace nearly makes us forget from whom he s borrowing And that is by design Crichton s pulpiness is pacing, conscious pacing, and as literary action oriented plotters go, Crichton is a master of speedy obfuscation.Add to all that some memorable tirades about science and reason and the environment, some kick ass Velociraptors and T rexes, an excellent scene with toxic eggs, and some rather insightful criticism of great men, and Jurassic Park is a book that I predict will stand the test of time We may not see its future today, but fifty to a hundred years from now it will be taught in schools and remembered, while other, literary books will be forgotten later It just struck me that if I forget the quality of this book between readings, and I do, then my prophecy concerning Jurassic Park s staying power is probably flawed I think I may be Nostradumbass than Nostradamus. Find all of my reviews at PLEASE NOTE THIS REVIEW IS ABOUT A BOOK THAT BECAME ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR MOVIES OF ALL TIME MORE THAN 20 YEARS AGO, GROSSED OVER A BILLION DOLLARS AND CHANGED THE WAY WE LOOKED AT SPECIAL EFFECTS FOREVER IF YOU CONSIDER ANYTHING IN MY REVIEW A SPOILER, THERE S A GOOD CHANCE YOU WERE CREATED IN A LAB FROM SOME FOSSILIZED AMBER.It all begins with a billionaire who has a big imagination and a lot of spare money lying around By dropping a ton of dollars into the biotechnology field and really thinking outside the box when it comes to the wheres and hows of DNA sample collection John Hammond has figured out how to bring dinosaurs back from extinction and now dreams of creating a theme park unlike any other What he didn t plan on was the fact that science is often unpredictableThe history of evolution is that life escapes all barriers Life breaks free Life expands to new territories Painfully, perhaps even dangerouslyNow on to my super literary review I honestly believed I had read this book back when the movie came out It turns out my brain foiled me once again and I actually had not Bottom line senile brain bad, reading Jurassic Park good Man oh man I had no clue what I had been missing Spare me your oh but it s sooooooo science y and I got bored before the story really took off or the you do know there is no way this could ever really happen, right talk I don t care Yes, it is super science y and yes, dinosaurs still aren t free ranging on an island off the shores of Costa Rica, but it doesn t change the fact that this book is phenomenal I had given Spielberg so much credit even knowing his film was based off of this book , but the credit is all owed to Michael Crichton Not only are the characters dialogue etc ripped right out of the book, but Crichton did it so much better Sure, certain unforgettable scenes were created purely by Spielberg view spoiler hide spoiler Hey, did y all know they made a movie out of this one Life breaks free Life expands to new territories Painfully, perhaps even dangerously But life finds a wayJurassic Park has all the major problems of a theme park, a zooand genetically altered prehistoric animals That s right the dinosaurs are back from the dead and nothing I repeat nothing could go wrongright HaAs my favorite character, Ian Malcom would say, All major changes are like death You can t see to the other side until you are there. Though, considering some of the problems they had with the park, I strongly believe that several of issues could ve been predictedthat is, if Mr Hammond and his scientists would ve taken the time to thoroughly consider implications and consequences of bringing back extinct species Dr Allen Grant, Ellie, Ian Malcom and a host of other professionals along with Mr Hammond s grandchildren are invited to the island to give their expert opinion on this un extinction.Of course, this visit comes at an excellent time there is a huge storm rolling in, the raptors are getting restless and there s some evidence that the smaller dinos have made it off the island Perrrfect But don t mention any of this to Mr Hammond or his staff they won t listen to any negativity As Ian Malcom said,They don t have intelligence They have what I call thintelligence They see the immediate situation They think narrowly and they call it being focused They don t see the surround They don t see the consequences Predictably, the storm rolls in, things go very, very wrongand soon even Mr Hammond might have to admit that there may be an issue or two in his precious parkYou know, at times like this one feels, well, perhaps extinct animals should be left extinctIf I had to pick a single, defining movie from my childhoodthis would be it So, of course, I had to pick up the book to see how it compared It definitely delivered.In this novel, Mr Hammond wasn t quite the bumbling, grandfatherly figure he is in the movie And of his grandchildren, Lex is certainly younger than her movie version and young Lex was than a little annoying This is one of those rare cases where the movie is not being a true to book adaption, but they are both equally entertaining and delightful Highly recommended And just like when I was a kid, I am comforted that if this dinosaur apocalypse ever happens, things would play out like thisGod created dinosaurs God destroyed dinosaurs God created Man Man destroyed God Man created dinosaurs Dinosaurs eat manWoman inherits the earthThe Finer Books Club 2018 Reading Challenge A book with a written inscriptionAudiobook CommentsThe reader Scott Brick was alright It s justthis book is about DINOSAURS surely this reader could ve mustered some enthusiasm Blog Instagram Twitter
