Review | Jurassic Park | Michael Crichton

Updated: Feb 3, 2019




Creatures extinct for eons roam Jurassic Park, and all the world can visit them—for a price. Until something goes wrong...


What I liked

✅ a wonderful blend of science and imagination


✅ addresses higher philosophical questions and modern-day issues


✅ a tight plot full of action, the right kind of violence, and tension


✅ I enjoyed reading about the narcissistic and self-absorbed John Hammond


What I didn't like

✖ THE CHILDREN, it is as if Crichton had never met a child before and has no idea how they talk, think or act


✖ the characters come off as a little two-dimensional as we're only given their professional backgrounds, not their personal life stories; they're really just vehicles for Crichton to explore his other grand ideas


✖ inconsistencies between how real palaeontologists work and the methods described in the book


✖ the headcount of the raptor at the end dragged the ending out and seemed unnecessary


Rating

3.5/5 🌟


Genre: sci-fi


Verdict: Recommended
