Jurassic Park

Jurassic Park

Jurassic Park, the novel by Michael Crichton had many rich, and interesting
characters. Crichton seemed to be able to make them come alive and jump out of
the pages into three-dimensional people. One such character was John Hammond.
This man had dreams of greatness. He had monstrous plans and the money to back
those plans up. He had always been a child at heart and he was in love with
dinosaurs, much like I am and this is one of the reasons that he was one of my
favorite characters. His company, The Hammond Foundation financed many different
digs for paleontologists. When The Hammond Foundation finds amber with a
mosquito locked in it, John Hammond realizes that perhaps his dreams of having a
dinosaur park are possible. This is because the mosquito locked inside the amber
contains the blood of a real dinosaur, complete with DNA. The finding of the
amber is not shown in the movie. Instead all we see in the movie is the original
amber his foundation found, attached to the top of his cane. The movie starts
with John Hammond inviting Alan Grant and his understudy Ellie Satler to the
park. John Hammond has to hire people to do all of the technical stuff, but it
is he who envisions the park as a whole. He sees the public paying thousands of
dollars to come and see his dinosaurs. He can see the astounded look on peoples
faces when they see creatures that have been extinct for millions of years. He
can see the happy faces of the children as well as the money he will be making
from the operation. John Hammond\'s fault is that he refuses to believe that
anything could go wrong. He has hired the best experts he could find, and he
places all of his faith in them. When things do start to go completely awry,
Hammond sees them only as minor problems; chinks in the system. John Hammond is
too caught up with the glamour of the idea of Jurassic Park rather than with the
minute details. In fact he refuses to even see the minute details, preferring to
leave them to somebody else. He is content with his delusions of grandeur. I
felt only mild remorse when he died at the end. It is hard to care about
somebody who only cares for himself. Alan Grant was one of the more important
characters of the story. He was a paleontologist who was initially hired by The
Hammond Foundation to do a written report on the foods that a baby dinosaur
might eat. Grant had no idea why he was being asked to do this, but he agreed to
because Hammond was offering an astronomical amount of money for the job. As
time went on, John Hammond invited Grant out to see the small Costa Rican island
that was named Jurassic Park. By this point, the park was almost finished.
Hammond wanted to get the opinion of a real paleontologist. Grant was literally
blown away. He could not believe that there were real live specimens of the
skeletons that he had been studying all of his life. Alan Grant was the person
who made the crucial discovery that the dinosaurs were reproducing on their own.
Grant found an egg shell that he immediately recognized as belonging to a
velociraptor. At first this event seemed to be impossible because the animals
were all hatched in a laboratory, and they were all supposed to be female.
However, Grant realized that the dinosaur DNA that Henry Wu had been working
with had not been all that complete. The missing parts had been filled in with
frog DNA. Unfortunately Wu failed to realize that frogs sometimes have the
ability to switch between being a male and a female. Because of this reason, the
dinosaurs were able to reproduce. Grant was also an integral character because
he was able to survive in the wilds of Jurassic Park and make his way to some
form of safety. When all of the power went out, Alan managed to outsmart the
incredibly ferocious Tyrannosaurus Rex. Grant was also one of the few brave
enough to go down into a velociraptor nest and count to find out how many
unknown babies there had been. Grant is also special in that he was one of the
few people to make it off that small Costa Rican island alive. Ellie Satler was
a graduate student under Alan Grant. Her specialty is paleobotany. She travels
to Jurassic Park along with Grant. She is
