5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic read!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on November 16, 2019
I have been fascinated by dinosaurs since I was a wee child, and Jurassic Park is easily one of my all-time favourite movies. That being said, I was a little hesitant when I picked up the book it was all based on - I mean, how could it possibly invoke the wonder I had seen on the big screen?!

It certainly didn't disappoint!
The book better explained the Mary-Shelley-style creation of the dinosaurs. It is quite heavy in scientific descriptions - having studied genetics, I found this to be an easy read. The language wasn't too technical, and there wasn't much jargon, so even if you don't have a background in genetics, I think it would still be reasonably easy to grasp.
There are a few differences that I think the movie did a little better. The strong women we know from Spielberg's movie weren't as notable in the book. Though Ellie is present and strong, albeit a watered-down version of the Ellie we know from the movie, Lex is a lot different. In the book, she isn't the smart, capable, teenage hacker who grows in strength - she's a frightened 8-year-old. And while her youth certainly explains her meekness, it was nice to see that the movie had created stronger female roles.

The description of the dinosaurs was fantastic, and I found myself hungrily devouring this book!

It's a 4.5/5 for me!
