    Lesson from this book Kids are annoying and will get you killedOk I’m slightly exaggerating but have you noticed how frustrating children characters are during a crisis? I’m sure they would be during the apocalypse or when being tracked by dinosaurs but I wanted to throw my phone at the wall a few times while reading this bookWith that said I now have a new completely reasonable phobia being eaten alive by a dinosaurCrichton did an amazing job at keeping me on my toes and completely stressed I was afraid it wouldn't live up to the movie since I remember being traumatized by it as a kid but it totally didI really loved all the science bits which weren't in the movieWorth the read

    New week New BookTube Video all about the best and worst literary apocalypses to live throughThe Written Review “Life breaks free Life expands to new territories Painfully perhaps even dangerously But life finds a way” Jurassic 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? Ha As 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 conseuences 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 extinctionOf 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 conseuences” 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 park “You know at times like this one feels well perhaps extinct animals should be left extinct” If 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 deliveredIn this novel Mr Hammond wasn't uite 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 eually entertaining and delightful Highly recommendedAnd just like when I was a kid I am comforted that if this dinosaur apocalypse ever happens things would play out like this “God created dinosaurs God destroyed dinosaurs God created Man Man destroyed God Man created dinosaursDinosaurs eat manWoman inherits the earth” The 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??YouTube | Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading

    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 José Costa Rica with a beach in the middle of it Trust me I am from Costa Rica and I live precisely in San José and we don't have a dang beach aroundI 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 placeI 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 novelsThe 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 Monseñor Sanabria You don't came out with places like that with your uick 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 literatureI 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 uestioned that dang sceneI 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

    Put me down for liked the movie a little   But scientific power is like inherited wealth attained without discipline You read what others have done and you take the next step You can do it very young You can make progress very fast And because you can stand on the shoulders of giants you can accomplish something uickly You don’t even know exactly what you have done but already you have reported it patented it and sold itMalcolm Edge goes to movie for Ian by the visual Though book Malcolm has a number of such interesting lines and is full of 1989 version of chaos theory eventually he grows tiresome Interestingly c'mon is this seriously a spoiler? book Malcolm is laid low by an infected wound You can probably guess what happensEnding Edge goes to the movie view spoilerThat bit about searching for the raptor eggs and the breeding behavior? I mean yay for Dr Grant but talk about anti climax hide spoiler

    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 solilouy 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 uite 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

    ❝ Discovery they believe is inevitable So they just try to do it first That's the game in science❞ Ian Malcolm Jurassic Park❝ All 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 VHS yes the legendary VHS was real young ones cassette 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 novel I am still not sure why it took me so long And 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 park But 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 uniue voice in this story belongs to Ian Malcolm who spends most of the time warning others about the parkSo everyone went ahead with the tour andWell let's just say things didn't go as planned Hey 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 shouting yay 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 Crichton's best novels which varied widely in uality and could be called part of the foundation of the Sci Fi thriller genre with mainstream media adaptions and many great new authors following in this footstepsUntil the first hybrids most novels of this genre were pure fiction with fantasy or Sci Fi elements and analysis and criticism of society until the first interdisciplinary approaches came and lead to today's milestones like the works of Suarez Sakey and others who create technothrillers that could come trueIn other of his works Chrichton has the problem of and with telling to slow info dumping character development suspense letting people talk and talk until a pretty constructed and unsatisfying end gives one a short wtf was that really all are there no explanations moment But he was a physician too so I would say that rocks the house so much that his stylistic flaws can be forgivenSpielberg's adaption took much of the atmosphere of the book and it´s one of the rare cases were both the book and the movie are fine pieces of art And hey dinosaurs and genetic engineering that must be greatTropes show how literature is conceptualized and created and which mixture of elements makes works and genres uniue

    ALL THE STARSHoly smokes y'all I did not realize the amount of differences in the book vs the movieAnd yes I love the book much then the movie nowI've seen the movie 10 million times but the book of Jurassic Park is dark gritty and so well done Kudos Michael Crichton on writing a classic that will last foreverI decided to do audio on Jurassic Park and Scott Brick was the narrator I'm super picky on narrators for audio books and I felt he did a great jobSPOILER ALERTHere's the main differences from the book vs movie view spoiler1 The love relationship between Dr Alan Grant and Ellie Sattler in the movie I prefer the friendship from the book It was realistic and less Hollywood like2 Oh my God the kids I loved Tim Murphy in the book and Lex Murphy was the biggest pain in the ass I was wishing and hoping for the T Rex to eat her everytime she opened her mouthAlso Tim was the older of the two3 Oh my heart Dr Ian Malcolm dies in this It was like imagining Jeff Goldblum dying and my heart broke Realistically it made sense that Ian died in the book since he was so badly injured but I'm glad Steven Spielberg kept him alive in the movie I mean it's Jeff Goldblum4 John Hammond was bat shit crazy egotistical and evil I much prefered the book version I loved hating him in this He was a great villian John Hammond in the movie was too teddy bear for my liking hide spoiler
