by Michael Crichton
The time of the future has finally arrived. Scientists Alan Grant, Ellie Sattler, and Ian Malcolm are invited to an island owned by John Hammond, who has finally made the breakthrough the world has been waiting for: The return of the dinosaurs. The island has Raptors, Brontosauruses, Apatosaurus, and even a Tyrannosaurus Rex. But then it all goes wrong. When the exciting vacation suddenly turns into a living two-day nightmare, the small group of survivors are forced to band together. The only question is--who will make it out alive?
This was a very exciting book, full of suspense and action and excitement. The science behind the creation of the park and dinosaurs actually make sense if you think about it. The book posed some interesting questions, like if it is even a good idea to bring back things from the past, or what impact will it have on society and even mankind as a whole? The only thing I didn't enjoy was the bad language.
I would recommend this book to people who enjoy action and suspense and sci-fi adventures. This is also for people who don't mind reading long lectures on scientific theory, because once you get past those, that's where the action comes in. This is also a book for people who don't mind getting a little gruesome in their reading (just as a heads-up).
