Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I really wasn't impressed by this book. I found many of the characters annoying and whiny. I would probably be whiny in their situation too, but hopefully not to that extent. Jurassic Park is a favorite movie of mine so I was excited to start reading. It started out ok and got a lot better, but by the time I was 3/4 of the way through I was just ready to be done. There was a lot of good action scenes and tension. The thing that I disliked most was the character development. I hated Hammond (& usually Lex) so much that they took away from what I was reading.
Overall, the writing was good and I appreciated a lot of what Ian Malcolm had to say about the resposibility of scientists, but (it pains me to say) I think I like the movie better.
