Jurassic Park

Author: Michael Crighton
Reviewer's Age: Grade 10

My favorite book is Jurassic Park by Michael Crighton. It is about a scientist who genetically breeds dinosaurs on an isolated island and invites two fellow scientists to take the grand tour of the newly inhabited island. On the island, a freak accident occurs while in the middle of the tour and the dinosaurs are free on the island to wreak havoc while the scientists try to escape with their lives. This is a very exciting book in which every chapter excites the reader to read the next one. Although it was extremely long with complicated stories in between which were confusing, the rest of the book was worthwhile. I would recommend this book to anyone older than the age of twelve because of the advanced vocabulary and confusing, hard-to follow-plot.
