I'm a fan of the movie Jurassic Park so I thought I'd read the book. I really enjoyed the book. Don't expect it to be 100% like the movie, though. Jurassic Park is like a combination of the movies Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park 3. I can't remember the second movie so I can't comment on that, but I did notice that character's who lived and died, and events that happened in the book were different in the movies. You may also change your opinion about some of the characters as well. Sometimes the book gets bogged down in technical information but all in all it's a good and interesting read that makes you think, just because you can do something, does it mean you should?
