Quotes

  • “Full of suspense.”

    - New York Times
  • “Wonderful…powerful.”

    - Washington Post
  • “Crichton’s dinosaurs are genuinely frightening.”

    - Chicago Sun-Times
  • “Frighteningly real…compelling…It’ll keep you riveted.”

    - Detroit News
  • “Scott Brick brings a chilling calm to the complex story with his deep, even tone and clear enunciation. Unlike the movie, the plot is a slow burn, full of dark twists and turns that Brick magnifies by slowing down his pace during moments of suspense while maintaining a cool, professional inflection. He does a particularly fine portrayal of John Hammond…One cannot deny the cerebral thrill when Brick brings the listener through the park’s gates. Absolutely riveting. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”

    - AudioFile
  • “Breathtaking adventure…a book that is as hard to put down as it is to forget.”

    - Time Out (New York)
  • “[A] tornado-paced tale, a slick package of info-thrills…and easily the most exciting dinosaur novel ever written. A sure-fire bestseller.”

    - Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
  • “Listening to Scott Brick’s cool and unnerving narration of this sci-fi classic started to get into my head and even percolate into my dreams…Despite this (or perhaps because of this) it’s still one I recommend for any road trip. It’s a stunner, in the best was possible.”

    - Audible.com (audio review)
  • “Jurassic Park fills out the film version’s kinetic story line with additional scenes, dialogue, and explanations while still maintaining Crichton’s trademark thrills-‘n’-chills pacing…The book really is better than the movie.”

    - Amazon.com
  • “Crichton ingeniously interweaves details of genetic engineering, computer wizardry, and current scientific controversy over dinosaurs to fashion a scary, creepy, mesmerizing techno-thriller with teeth.”

    - Publishers Weekly
  • “Readers can just imagine being caught in the open with these dinosaurs after there’s been a massive power outage on the island. Suspense, excitement, and good adventure pervade this book—and few YAs will be able to resist it.”

    - School Library Journal
