Informação Sobre a Obra

Jurassic Park por Michael Crichton (1990)

  1. 141
    The Lost World por Michael Crichton (DeDeNoel)
    DeDeNoel: Kind of an obvious choice, The Lost World is a sequel to Jurassic Park. I think it's just as good, if not better.
  2. 81
    The Lost World por Arthur Conan Doyle (jseger9000)
    jseger9000: An obvious rec, I admit. Doyle's story is the original "modern men interact with dinos" tale and Crichton's is the best one since.
  3. 41
    Carnosaur por Harry Adam Knight (caimanjosh, tottman)
    caimanjosh: There's been some speculation that Crichton actually got the idea for Jurassic Park from this book, which was written well before. This one's gorier.
    tottman: Both are stories about trying to bring back dinosaurs, and the ultimately destructive outcome of such an attempt. Carnosaur leans more to the horror side of the equation and Jurassic Park more to the thriller side.

    Relic por Douglas Preston (VictoriaPL)

Excellent. Although movie was excellent as well, the book is even better than it. I specially enjoyed listening to the story in audiobook format. ( )

4/5

This was my second time reading this book, since the first time I read it it didn't really stick to me, even though I loved it. After a couple of months I could barely remember what happened and distinguish it from the movie, that I've watched dozens of times since I was a kid. Given this is a re-read, I'll review it in a different manner, focusing on other aspects.

First of all, I really like how much the characters are different from the movie and even found them way more likeable, or at least more believable in a real life sense. Hammond is a greedy, callous scam artist that doesn't care for any loss of life in his park. Grant is more of a nice, normal man and has less of a problem with children. The kids ages are switched, with the boy being the older and the girl being really really young, but I don't think it changed much. Malcolm is less of a rockstar and more of a very smart guy that talks fast, but he's still the best character of the book.

The Jurassic Park in itself is shown in a much more sincere lens, being clear outright that it is incredibly dangerous from the very conception. It was doomed to failure, even if Ned didn't sabotage it.

I actually understood very well why this book just sorta slipped through my mind after I read it. There are a lot of chase scenes that sorta end up the same way, and a lost of scientific facts that aren't all that memorable, even if Crichton had a great style for telling them in a interesting way.

I really liked the book, it's a quick and fun read for about three or four days if you really get into it. I would recommend it for anyone that enjoys the movie. ( )

The book that spawned a movie, that spawned a franchise - I read this back in high school, but I read it too fast, and didn't remember most of it. So, I did a re-read. First, Michael Crichton has a way of writing- he manages to simplify the science. However, the book is 34 years old at time of writing, and new discoveries in paleontology means that all birds are dinosaurs, and feathers are a thing, however, this book isn't about the accuracy of dinosaurs, but a book about science gone wrong, so it doesn't affect the plot at all.

As for the story. Before the Titanic Submarine accident, I'd say nobody could be stupid enough to build a computer system that does everything - with no backup, no redundant systems, and no applications that run independent of the main computer system. Its like putting your very expensive eggs in one well protected basket. I get why Crichton made the computer system this way, he needed a catastrophic failure for this book to work, and it also adds to the hubris of man - thinking that everything can be controlled.

As for the writing - this is not a literary masterpiece. However, the individual characters make sense, from Hammond and his grandiose plans (and how quickly he blames everyone but himself around him) to the paleontologists, Allan Grant and Ellie Sattler. I found the Hammond's grandaughter, Lexi, to be rather annoying- going from scared to laughing and complaining about being hungry in a matter of hours - she's suppose to be 8, and should have a better idea of whats going on. Also, I found Ian Malcolm to be insufferable. I know that's the point of his character, the guy who is always right, but after a few paragraphs of him pontificating on how chaos theory says this isn't going to work, I'd have cheered if he was eaten by a dinosaur.

Anyway, I'm glad I did a reread of this book, now I should go watch the movie! ( )

Dope book but damn were there lots of characters to keep track of, wish some died sooner so i wouldn't need to take notes ( )

Reading this book as an early teen right after the success of the movie of the same name I was fascinated by the wonders of the science described in the book and of course by the thought of reviving such fantastic giant ancient creatures. The dangers of such experiment and horrors of unleashing such power were also not taken for granted by my teen mind. I confess, however, that more moral and ethical questions about the message transmitted by the author were to populate my mind only a bit later as more dense and complex topics would show up in my adult mind: What would humanity do if such power of (re)creation was sudden really in its hands? To use it or not to use it? The answer is getting clear by the day... ( )

The Jurassic Park is a novel by Michael Crichton, published by Alfred A. Knopf in 1990. The version I've read is the Hungarian edition, published by Maecenas Könyvkiadó in 1992. Jurassic Park is an adventure story, set in the near future on a dinosaur-based theme park, where everything goes wrong. Crichton's writing is captivating. He is able to show us a believable character in a page or two. I recommend the Jurassic Park book for anyone who would like to read a thrilling adventure story.

Prologue
The tropical rain fell in drenching sheets, hammering the corrugated roof of the clinic building, roaring down the metal gutters, splashing on the ground in a torrent.
Introduction
The late twentieth century has witnessed a scientific gold rush of astonishing proportions: the headlong and furious haste to commercialize genetic engineering.
Mike Bowman whistled cheerfully as he drove the Land Rover through the Cabo Blanco Biological Reserve, on the west coast of Costa Rica.

Reptielen zijn weerzinwekkend vanwege hun koude lichaam, hun bleke kleur, hun kraakbeenskelet, hun vuile huid, hun wrede uitdrukking, hun berekenende blik, hun afstotelijke geur, hun scherpe stemgeluid, hun smerig nest en hun vreselijk vergif; daarom heeft hun schepper zijn macht niet gebruikt om er vele te maken. (Linnaeus, 1797) Een nieuwe levensvorm kun je niet ongedaan maken. (Erwin Chargaff, 1972)
Because the history of evolution is that life escapes all barriers. Life breaks free. Life expands to new territories. Painfully, perhaps even dangerously. But life finds a way.
