    That doesn’t mean that it’s bad it’s actually pretty good with the movie it’s basically with that Spielberg magic to it so they’re both equal spoilers if you haven’t read the book yet The cliff hinder is strange well that’s what I basically have to say anyways I recommend it
  • Spared no expense!

    I'm a huge fan of the Jurassic Park movies and finally got the chance to see where Spielberg got his inspiration from....needless to say from the first page to the last I had no idea what adventure I would experience, the story is a rollercoaster of emotions where you don't know who will live who will die what's going to happen next? The story that is written in these pages is the story I would have loved or would love to see brought word for word to the big screen which some aspects of Jurassic World are definitely displayed here but overall this is a must read for any sci-fi fan or someone looking for a quick read, amazing work!!!
  • A scary read

    The series of the Jurassic Park books are way more involved then the movies, of course. The books are a very scary read, and you are more afraid of the Dinosaurs in the books then in the movies. I thoroughly loved the movies, including Jurassic World, and the Lego game, but the books were much more enjoyable.
  • Wow!!!

    Great, but how does a Dino shoot poison 50+ feet and blind someone? Also, Muldoon doesn't say anything but "bloody hell".
  • Loved this book!
