Jurassic Park

I am very serious when I say that Michael Crichton's book, Jurassic Park, is one of my favorites. I usually don't go for the gory books of death and destruction, but this one was intriguing.
It starts off with a young boy who has been ripped up by something, being shipped to a hospital. Read it!
Then it goes to a young girl and her parents, traveling to a deserted beach. She is studying wildlife, when a small birdlike reptile attacks her arm. That is one of my favorite parts.

And so launches the gory, tragic, horrifying, and freaky...Jurassic Park.

I am starting another Crichton book, and it has started off the same way. A guy comes into a hospital, puking blood. (Sorry for any visuals!)

I will post about Timeline (the above book), soon!

my siblings all just finished Timeline, and I'm hating myself for having seen the movie without reading the book. Crichton is an artist.

Crichton IS an artist...but seeing the movie may clear up a few of your confusions. My mum doesn't allow me to see it. But all Crichton books are SO CONFUSING!!!!! Oh, well!
