Day 12


I hope you’re ready for a thriller in a BIG way!  

Jurassic Park
 Michael Crichton

Jurassic Park is my favorite Crichton novel.   I’m sure you’ve seen the movie like a gazillion times but trust me, the book is so much better!  The movie leaves details unexplained and vague.  The book fills in all those parts.   In fact, if you’re looking for a great story with enough plausibility to give you the creeps, this book is for you.  
Zoos don’t re-create nature, …Let’s be clear.  Zoos take the nature that already exists and modify it very slightly, to create holding pens for animals.  Even those minimal modifications often fail..The animals escape with regularity.  But a zoo is not a model for this park.  This park is attempting something far more ambitious than that.  Something much more akin to making a space station on earth.
And for those of you who have never seen the movie and have no idea about this book, the story is of a man who has managed to scientifically re-create dinosaurs.  He makes the decision to open a theme park, Jurassic Park, to share them with the world.  Mr. Hammond invites experts in the fields of math and science to travel to his island and see the dinosaurs and that’s when things begin to go terribly wrong.

Happy Reading!
