Editorial Reviews site. But if Speilberg's amped-up CGI creation left you longing for more scientific background and Although not his best book get ahold of sci-fi classic The Andromeda Strain for that , Jurassic Park fills out the film version's kinetic story line with additional scenes, dialogue, and explanations while still maintaining Crichton's trademark thrills-'n'-chills pacing.
As ever, the book really is better than the movie. An island off Costa Rica will soon be the world's most ambitious theme park--a dinosaur preserve. A visionary financier's biotechnology company has succeeded in cloning these extinct reptiles.
Fifteen different species, presumably incapable of breeding, are now placidly roaming around, but Jurassic Park's resident mathematician, an expert in chaos theory, predicts that the animals' behavior is inherently unstable.
When a rival genetics firm attempts to steal frozen dinosaur embryos, things go haywire. Two cute American kids, eight-year-old Tina and year-old Tim, a safari guide from Kenya and a Denver paleontologist set things aright--almost. Though the dinosaurs here are more interesting than the people, Crichton The Andromeda Strain ingeniously interweaves details of genetic engineering, computer wizardry and current scientific controversy over dinosaurs to fashion a scary, creepy, mesmerizing techno-thriller with teeth.
It can be read as a thought-provoking fable about technological hubris and the hazards of bioengineering. Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc. See all Editorial Reviews.

I saw the movie first and even though it's still great, I believe the book is far above it.
After a bunch of mysterious incidents in Costa Rica, a team of experts is summoned to the new island resort of a biotech company and soon discover it is home to genetically recreated dinosaurs.
However, it soon becomes apparent that those running the park have arrogantly overestimated their control over nature.

A corporate espionage plot is just the final nail in the coffin needed to tip the park into total chaos. With scenes of heart-pounding action, terror, and suspense and also interesting characters and fascinating discussions of chaos theory and mankind's hubris, Crichton's novel is truly a great read.

But if you haven't -- Jurassic Park is a "theme" park that's main attractions are genetically brought back Dinosaurs. No animatronics or misdirection. These are real flesh and blood dinos. The unfortunate part about using real animals is that they are unpredictable. And you can guess where this unpredictability goes.
The narration for the 25th Anniversary Edition of Jurassic Park was done by Scott Brick who just absolutely blows this away. But photographic techniques look just like that — darkroom manipulation of the filmed image.

Working long hours and nights with giant mainframes, John was able to process only a few seconds of film a week. But in the end, we got what we needed. We obtained a sort of blocky, animated effect that was remarkable in — and a cliche seven years later, when similar imagery appeared in every thing from perfume ads to paintings by Salvador Dali.
