The film was good, sure, but it was't jurassic park. It had a totally different feel to the book. The film was about dinosaurs and the book was about technology and what happens when it goes wrong, with a few complementary dinosaurs thrown in for good luck! One thing that has to be said about this book is that it is extremely well written. There's a lot of information in there, but it never gets boring. In the same way, it never rushes ahead, tripping over itself. The characters are well-developed and realistic, and the few scary scenes are scary. You just never know who's gonna get it next!
