After a bunch of mysterious incidents in Costa Rica, a team of experts is summoned to the new island resort of a biotech company and soon discover it is home to genetically recreated dinosaurs. However, it soon becomes apparent that those running the park have arrogantly overestimated their control over nature. A corporate espionage plot is just the final nail in the coffin needed to tip the park into total chaos.
With scenes of heart-pounding action, terror, and suspense and also interesting characters and fascinating discussions of chaos theory and mankind's hubris, Crichton's novel is truly a great read.
I do have a couple gripes about it. First, I don't think the people in the book display enough awe, anxiety, and fear of the dinosaurs. The people almost treat the animals as zoo animals that everyone knows. And the kids, Tim and Lex aren't scared enough. Or that does not come through well enough. Second, the behavior of the raptors is kind of silly, but whatever, it's entertaining.
Overall, this is a great book for someone looking to suspend disbelief and be entertained.
