Comments about Jurassic Park:

I Took it to work to read when it wasnt busy.
Found I had to pry myself away from the book at times, trying to squeeze in another few pages or lines while I was working.

Especially since I've watched and thoroughly enjoyed the movie based on this novel, my imagination was on easy mode, the movies scenes filling in certain parts of the story line where it worked.

It was great! I was excited, shocked, sad and horrified at some points through the book.

It was hard to say if it was better than the movie, because i love the movie so much! but, it is.
There is just so much more in depth detail and width the plot.

Loved it :)
