Jurassic Park Summary

Michael Crichton\'s Jurassic Park

Alan Grant and Ellie Sattler were among many people paleontologists that
were funded by a wealthy man by the name of John Hammond. The two of them
were visited by a man named Morris who was very interested in Hammond.
Apparently he had leased an island of the west of Costa Rica. He had some
kind of
big development going on for the past ten years. He also had been buying large
quantities of Amber which seemed useless due to it\'s low value. And Morris,
being
from the government, was very suspicious. Shortly after this visit the two
dinosaur
diggers were called by this man called Hammond. He wanted the two of them to
visit
him on his island. It was some type of biological preserve that would change
the
world in science and Hammond needed all the opinions he could get on if it
would be
safe. He called it, Jurassic Park.
Meanwhile there was a young man by the name of Dodgson who worked with
a rival company of John Hammond. He knew Hammond was on to something big
having to do with dinosaurs. He met up with one of Hammond\'s employee\'s named
Nedry who was the design of there park\'s computer system. Dodgson knew that
they\'re company was some how recreating dinosaurs by making embryos. There was
just one problem, they\'re company was ten years behind and would never catch
up.
Nedry ended up taking the million dollar offer from Dodgson for the embryo\'s
that
would change there whole company and update them on ten years of research.
When Sattler and Grant arrived at the island they met up with other
acquaintances of Hammond. There was the famous mathematician, Ian Malcolm.
The big and rather rude man, Dennis Nedry. The intelligent scientist that was
behind the whole park, Henry Wu. And the lawyer, Ed Regis. Soon later the
rest of
the visitors arrived. It was Hammond\'s grandchildren. And then, it was ready
for
the tour to begin.
The tour consisted of six people. Hammond\'s grandchildren, Lex and Tim,
Malcolm, Dr. Sattler and Dr.Grant, and Ed Regis. On the tour they saw many
interesting things. There was real live moving dinosaurs! The walk around tour
briefly explained how the scientists did it. First off they had to find amber
which was
tree sap that hardened a long time ago when the dinosaurs lived. In this amber
contained many bugs such as mosquitoes which drank the blood of dinosaurs
millions of years ago. This blood was then used to capture the DNA which would
recreated an actual embryo that would soon turn into a live growing dinosaur.
In the
tour was a total of 15 different species and 238 individual dinosaurs. The
tour
unfortunately was canceled during the middle of it due to bad weather that was
approaching. Also to make matters worst the power went out and systems went
down and was unable to be fixed without Nedry which was quietly sneaking
around
the lab for the embryo\'s that need to be delivered. Unfortunately for him, on
the way
to the shipping dock he took a wrong turn and was killed by the Dilophosaurs.
A
man by the name of Arnold was also a computer programmer for Jurassic Park. He
thought he\'d be able to find out what Nedry did but he just couldn\'t. Nedry
was
indeed a slob, but wasn\'t stupid. He decided the only way to get the system
running
again would be to restart it. This was very dangerous because he\'d never done
it
before, but they had no choice.
The time in which the power was off was when everything went wrong. The
dinosaurs were smart and used this time as an advantage. They were able to
knock
over all the electrified fences easily. When the tyrannosaur\'s got loose they
went
straight for the cars which were moving the people along the tour. Ed Regis
was
terrified the most which sent him running out of the car and into the woods.
This
turned out a bad way to go because shortly after he was devoured by the baby
T-rex
in a horrible death. Malcolm also went running from the car which made the rex
plunge him deep into the woods. The only people left were Grant and the two
children which went running away from the large animal. Dr.Sattler was with
the
veterinarian that they had met up with shortly before everything went wrong.
On
there way back to the main building Sattler and the vet found Malcolm who was
badly wounded. After seeing him in such bad shape they brought him back for
help.
Meanwhile the kids and Grant were making
