Critic Reviews

"Frighteningly real...compelling.... It'll keep you riveted." (The Detroit News)

"Crichton's dinosaurs are genuinely frightening." (Chicago Sun-Times)

"Full of suspense." (The New York Times Book Review)

"Scott Brick brings a chilling calm to the complex story with his deep, even tone and clear enunciation.... He does a particularly fine portrayal of John Hammond, the creator of the controversial park, giving the character a raspy edge that suits the dark agenda beneath his grandfatherly facade." (AudioFile)

Many differences from the movie

Heavily philosophical in parts, and a little preachy, but the storyline is terrific and different enough from the movie to be suspenseful and interesting. I don't know if Speilberg's vision makes it easier, or if it's an impediment to really imagining this incredible world, but appreciating both as separate pieces of art would be my advice.

Classic science fiction for the ages

Great story with interesting social undertones about the power man and the consequences of his ambition. interestingly enough, it feels like we aren't too far from a situation presented here in the future
