Ballantine Books Edition: December 1991. 399 Pages, Hardcover I. A Brief

Summary of the Plot. A billionaire has created a technique to clone dinosaurs.

From the left behind DNA that his crack team of scientists and experts extract

he is able to grow the dinosaurs in labs and lock them up on an island behind

electrified fences. He has created a sort of theme park on the island which is

located off the west coast of Costa Rica. The island is called Isla Nublar. He

plans to have the entire planet come and visit his wondrous marvels. He asks

a group of scientists from several different fields to come and view the park,

but something terribly goes wrong when a worker on the island turns traitor

and shuts down the power. II. A Description of the Most Important Aspects

of the Contents. The main characters in the book are: John Hammond who is

a billionaire developer who has used his resources to create the dinosaur

filled island known as Jurassic Park. He is an old grandfather, and he dies in

the book by a dinosaur known as a Procompsognathus. Dr. Alan Grant who is

a renowned paleontologist who agrees to visit Jurassic Park only to find out it

is the home of several Dinosaurs. Unlike the movie Dr. Grant loves kids in

the book. He also had a of a beard. Dr. Ellie Sattler is a Paleobotinist and

Alan Grant who is among the first people to tour Jurassic Park. Tim who is

the 11 year old grandson of John Hammond. He is kind of geeky, into

computers and loves Dinosaurs. His 7 year older sister is Alexis. She has a

kind of tomboy attitude and loves base-ball Ian Malcom is the Mathematician

that uses “Chaos Theory” to predict disastrous results. he only wears black

and gray. He is presumably dead in Jurassic Park the book, but

“miraculously” is in the sequel, The Lost World. Finally there is Dennis

Nedry. He was the computer genius who’s greed and ambition bring chaos to

Jurassic Park. There are many other characters that played a big part in the

book, but I thought they were the best and the plot revolved around them. The

characters show the greatest difference in the movie and the book. There

were many opposites in the characters and even the roles and elements of Tim

and Lex were reversed. The book starts off when some of the dinosaurs have

escaped form the island. John Hammond invites a group of scientists to the

park. He also invites his grandchildren. Denis Nedry took a bribe from a rival

company to get samples of Dinosaur DNA. In order to make his escape, he

turns the power off, even the electric fences. All hell breaks loose when the

humans try to warn a boat that it’s transporting Dinosaurs to the mainland,

and run away from them at the same time. III. The Significance of the Book

to the Student. This book had plenty of significance in it, even though a lot of

the elements that were significant were hidden. First of all this book thought

us a few basic things about DNA. How it’s the building blocks of life, and

stuff can be cloned. Like that sheep, Dolly. Also it taught us what some

scientific practices were about when different scientists visited the island.

Suchexamples are paleontologists, paleobotanists, and mathematicians. 1

other thing that this book teaches the student is that it is a prime example of

the differences between the movie and the book. And yes, the book was

better. IV. Evaluation of the Book. Personally, I thought this was a great

book. When I saw the movie, it was a blast. I loved the movie, but when I

read the book for the first time I was blown away. This has been the second

time I’ve read it and I must say it hasn’t lost his touch. When I read the book

the first time I was rooting for the different characters and all, and the second

time I read it, it still kept those same elements. It still had it’s flavor. That’s

what I loved about this book. There is one thing I must recommend about this

book though. Read it as something for fun, not for school. And go at your

own pace, but read a lot, it’s a big book. The experience of the book it much

better then.
