Detalhes da Obra

Jurassic Park de Michael Crichton (1990)

  1. 121
    The Lost World de Michael Crichton (DeDeNoel)
    DeDeNoel: Kind of an obvious choice, The Lost World is a sequel to Jurassic Park. I think it's just as good, if not better.
  2. 90
    The Lost World de Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (jseger9000)
    jseger9000: An obvious rec, I admit. Doyle's story is the original "modern men interact with dinos" tale and Crichton's is the best one since.
  3. 51
    Carnosaur de Harry Adam Knight (caimanjosh, tottman)
    caimanjosh: There's been some speculation that Crichton actually got the idea for Jurassic Park from this book, which was written well before. This one's gorier.
    tottman: Both are stories about trying to bring back dinosaurs, and the ultimately destructive outcome of such an attempt. Carnosaur leans more to the horror side of the equation and Jurassic Park more to the thriller side.
  4. 40
    The Island of Dr. Moreau de H. G. Wells (Stbalbach)
    Stbalbach: Mad doctor's breeding program on a remote island. What could go wrong?
  5. 20
    King Kong de Delos W. Lovelace (Hedgepeth)
  6. 32
    Relic de Douglas Preston (VictoriaPL)
  7. 11
    Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror de Steve Alten (Hedgepeth)
  8. 11
    Oryx and Crake de Margaret Atwood (mcenroeucsb)
  9. 11
    The Cartesian Machine de Dr. Nick E. Tran (NickETran)
    NickETran: The Cartesian Machine by Nick E. Tran and Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton are both based on the newly discovered sciences and the terrible disasters that ensued.
  10. 11
    Raptor Red de Robert T. Bakker (Konran, wordcauldron)
  11. 01
    Frankenstein de Mary Shelley (Usuário anônimo)
    Usuário anônimo: humanity creates without knowing

    When the Wind Blows de James Patterson (themephi)

Jurassic Park. JURASSIC FRIGGIN' PARK PEOPLE.

Now if you know me you know that this is one of my top 10 movies of all time. Action packed with dinosaurs ripping people apart and some legendary characters like Muldoon hunting some raptors and Dr. Ian Malcom dropping knowledge about Chaos Theory. I was 8 years old when it released and I can still remember sitting in that dark theater watching the Tyrannosaurus Rex step out of the paddock and hearing her deafening roar shake the room.

And with that said... I think the book was better than the movie. Wait! Don't shoot me just yet!

The story that Michael Crichton wrote in this awesome novel plays out very differently than the movie. The book seems more action packed and Dr. Alan Grant and the kids get into way more precarious situations. Characters behave and have different roles in the book. John Hammond is the protagonist and not he's not such a likeable character. I don't think anyone really liked him in the movie either but in the book he's a dick.

Biotechnologist Henry Wu plays a way bigger part here compared to his 5 minutes on screen in the baby raptor scene. Crichton goes into more detail about how the DNA splicing process works so things do get a bit technical.

Dr. Ian Malcom's speech on how the earth will survive despite the mistakes and follies done by mankind is one of the best I've ever read. I enjoyed his character in the movie and here he sounds like a true scientist.

Both mediums have their individual charm. I enjoyed the book and I thought it was great and it would've been cool to see the book be adapted a bit more than where Spielberg took it HOWEVER the film is still damn amazing! ( )

For lovers of the film I can honestly say you will not be disappointed, and if you're like me and loved the film so much you wished there been more of it then buckle up because this is the book for you!

It opens with a sort of prologue about strange 'lizard' attacks in rural mainland Costa Rica, which gave the whole story an extra depth that I really adored.
The author did go into a lot of detail about genetics and the state of scientific advancement that, while interesting, was a little too long... but nothing a little skim reading can't fix.

As you might have guessed, the characters - Dr Grant, Ellie, Muldoon, Ian Malcolm, Arthur, Dennis, Dr Wu, Tim, Lex and Hammond - are all excellent. Muldoon surprised me a little because he is a much bigger and more detailed character in the book, and its all the richer for it. The lack if a romantic subplot between Ellie and Grant was also a nice change of pace and I found it to be a surprising improvement.

And need I mention the dinosaurs? If the movie did it well, then my word the book did it magnificently. The T-Rex was utterly terrifying, decidedly disgusting and totally brilliant. The collective of different herbivores were astoundingly detailed and well developed, with just enough science to keep it interesting...
And then there are the velociraptors. The film did a good job of them, but it can't hold up against the sheer awesomeness of the books counterparts. Their seemingly hive minded intelligence and coordination, the violence and raw power they demonstrate, their hierarchical nature... everything went towards creating beautifully detailed predators, and creating a wonderfully realised threat.

All in all it was a brilliant read and I wasn't ready for it to end! I would (and have) recommend it to anyone who likes the sound of a dinosaur action thrill. Definitely a favourite for me. ( )

The Jurassic Park is a novel by Michael Crichton, published by Alfred A. Knopf in 1990. The version I've read is the Hungarian edition, published by Maecenas Könyvkiadó in 1992. Jurassic Park is an adventure story, set in the near future on a dinosaur-based theme park, where everything goes wrong. Crichton's writing is captivating. He is able to show us a believable character in a page or two. I recommend the Jurassic Park book for anyone who would like to read a thrilling adventure story.

"Reptiles are abhorrent because of their cold body, pale color, cartilaginous skeleton, filthy skin, fierce aspect, calculating eye, offensive smell, harsh voice, squalid habitation, and terrible venom; wherefore their Creator has not exerted his powers to make many of them."

Prologue
The tropical rain fell in drenching sheets, hammering the corrugated roof of the clinic building, roaring down the metal gutters, splashing on the ground in a torrent.
Introduction
The late twentieth century has witnessed a scientific gold rush of astonishing proportions: the headlong and furious haste to commercialize genetic engineering.
Mike Bowman whistled cheerfully as he drove the Land Rover through the Cabo Blanco Biological Reserve, on the west coast of Costa Rica.

Reptielen zijn weerzinwekkend vanwege hun koude lichaam, hun bleke kleur, hun kraakbeenskelet, hun vuile huid, hun wrede uitdrukking, hun berekenende blik, hun afstotelijke geur, hun scherpe stemgeluid, hun smerig nest en hun vreselijk vergif; daarom heeft hun schepper zijn macht niet gebruikt om er vele te maken. (Linnaeus, 1797) Een nieuwe levensvorm kun je niet ongedaan maken. (Erwin Chargaff, 1972)
Because the history of evolution is that life escapes all barriers. Life breaks free. Life expands to new territories. Painfully, perhaps even dangerously. But life finds a way.
