Customer reviews

Jurassic Park is one of those books that I'd read countless amounts of times over and over and never get bored of. I quickly whipped through this book, but when I decided I would read it again, I discovered many things that I'd forgotten to pay attention to, while reading it for the first time and everything began to make more sense. The novel describes in detail how the dinosaurs murder viciously, so this one is not for the faint hearted!show more
