Jurassic Park: Comparison Between Book and MovieThe story Jurassic Park, by Michael Crichton takes place on a smallisland near Costa Rica, it’s about a park full of dinosaurs created by Dr.Hammond. The dinosaurs are locked in large cages with electric fences. But asthe mathematician Ian Malcolm predicted, nature cannot be controlled. They findthis out when the security system goes out. They soon lost the electric fenceand the dinosaurs started to escape.
They try to restore the power and aresuccessful but it did not matter since the dinosaurs were already loose.The dinosaurs start to cause a lot of trouble, even with the powerrestored. They determine that there is nothing they can do. They decide toleave the island by helicopter.
The book is much different then the movie. The book goes in more detailabout the genetic engineering of the dinosaurs. The book also makes IanMalcolm’s theory that nature can’t be controlled nor predicted more valid.
Inthe end of the book version the island actually survives for a while after thepower goes out.I liked the movie more because I saw that first and it made the bookseem strange. I would recommend reading Jurassic Park. It starts right in thebeginning with suspense and action.
