Sequel to Jurassic Park. This audio version is also narrated by Scott Brick. Despite being streamed across Overdrive courtesy of the library, it was still broken up into CD sections and announced the change of CDs and repeated the last line of the previous CD section before continuing with the narra...

BLUF: Try reading the first chapter. If you can get through the lecture without finding it tedious, you may enjoy this book. If you can’t, well, it doesn’t get any better from there.I think this book......has few similarities with the movie.This is actually a good thing. There is a scene or two that...

Originally, I would stay away from books like these. Mainly because I don’t like the grueling fillers also known as details.

This review is also posted on my book blog, Rinn Reads.Jurassic Park is one of my favourite books. As a child, the film both simultaneously fascinated and terrified me.

Great novel just like the first. Like the previous one, I read this one quite young so believe I didn't quite fully understand it. My love for dinosaurs means that I will pick this up again one day.
