Dinosaurs are the biggest animals know to man but when John Hammond and a group of genetic engineers finger out to recreate them it takes on man to turn everything into chaos. This is Jurassic Park a book written by Michael Crichton. This book takes place in a small island off Costa Rica called isla Nublar where John Hammond's amazing park lays. Hammond invites a paleontologist named Alan Grant, a botness Ellie Sattler, a lawyer named Donald Gennaro, and a mathematician named Ian Malcolm. Hammond also brings his grandson and daughter Tim and Lex. These are the protagonist, but there can't be protagonist without an antagonist. Dennis Nedry who wants to steal something of great importance to Hammond. When he does the security systems turn off and the dinosaurs get loose leaving the small group stuck in a island full of dinosaurs as they try to get the security systems back online. The reason I liked this book is because I watched the movie and I knew there was a book so I decided to read it and after I read the action packed book I really liked it. Also I like dinosaurs so if there is anyone who likes dinosaurs this would be a book for you.
