1.0 out of 5 stars Bad quality
By Natashia on September 2, 2018
So the story is great. Highly recommend over the movie. Unfortunately the quality of the book is awful. There are soo many grammatical errors. Mostly just in the last 50 pages. But i had to stop several times and reassess what I just read. I attached several of the errors but there were at least 10. After proof reading you would think there wouldn't be soo many! I recommend buying a different version of the book.

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!
