Jurassic Park: Comparison Between Book and Movie


The story Jurassic Park, by Michael Crichton takes place on a small
island near Costa Rica, it\'s about a park full of dinosaurs created by Dr.
Hammond. The dinosaurs are locked in large cages with electric fences. But as
the mathematician Ian Malcolm predicted, nature cannot be controlled. They find
this out when the security system goes out. They soon lost the electric fence
and the dinosaurs started to escape. They try to restore the power and are
successful but it did not matter since the dinosaurs were already loose.
The dinosaurs start to cause a lot of trouble, even with the power
restored. They determine that there is nothing they can do. They decide to
leave the island by helicopter.
The book is much different then the movie. The book goes in more detail
about the genetic engineering of the dinosaurs. The book also makes Ian
Malcolm\'s theory that nature can\'t be controlled nor predicted more valid. In
the end of the book version the island actually survives for a while after the
power goes out.
I liked the movie more because I saw that first and it made the book
seem strange. I would recommend reading Jurassic Park. It starts right in the
beginning with suspense and action.
