Jurassic Park
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.
