This is the THE technothriller, THE dinosaur novel, and THE best of Michael Crichtons works. I saw the movie first and even though it's still great, I believe the book is far above it.
After a bunch of mysterious incidents in Costa Rica, a team of experts is summoned to the new island resort of a biotech company and soon discover it is home to genetically recreated dinosaurs. However, it soon becomes apparent that those running the park have arrogantly overestimated their control over nature. A corporate espionage plot is just the final nail in the coffin needed to tip the park into total chaos.
With scenes of heart-pounding action, terror, and suspense and also interesting characters and fascinating discussions of chaos theory and mankind's hubris, Crichton's novel is truly a great read.
