    Detroit News

    Time Out (New York)

  • “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. As ever, the book really is better than the movie.”


  • “[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)

  • “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.”


  • “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.”
