Day 19. Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton

It’s easy to forget that some really good books are older than 10 years.  I’m not talking about the really old classics, either.  I’m sure you all know about them.  But Americans like shiny and new and current, and there are books that are worth reading that aren’t so new.

Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton was written in 1991, and since then three movies have come out of it.  And if rumors are true, a fourth one should be coming to a theater near you sometime in the not-too-distant future.  There is a good reason that three almost four movies have been made: it’s a fantastic book.  As a fan of sci-fi/disaster movies, I think the movies are amazing.  But the book is more amazing.  Suspense, intrigue, dinosaurs in modern day…how can the story not capture millions?

Just a disclaimer: there is definitely some language in this book.  But I still recommend it.
