What the Critics Say

"Frighteningly real...compelling.... It'll keep you riveted." (The Detroit News)
"Crichton's dinosaurs are genuinely frightening." (Chicago Sun-Times)
"Full of suspense." (The New York Times Book Review)
"Scott Brick brings a chilling calm to the complex story with his deep, even tone and clear enunciation.... He does a particularly fine portrayal of John Hammond, the creator of the controversial park, giving the character a raspy edge that suits the dark agenda beneath his grandfatherly facade."

Jurassic Park!

Any additional comments?

An excellent novel, fast paced, exciting, thrilling add in the huge frigging dinosaurs and what else could you ask for?

I used to have an old abridged version of this on cassette when I was a kid and I listen to it so much it eventually wore out so I was extremely excited to see that this unabridged version was coming out.

Scott Brick was an perfect choice of narrator because he is a master at building up tension when needed in a story telling.

I think I saw the film 5 times at the cinema when it came out and loved it, (I was twelve back then so who can blame me!) but the book is so very much better and that is saying something. CGI effects in film can date with time but your imagination’s special effects never do. I absolutely love this Audiobook.

Excellent Ride

You all know the plot from the film - mad billionaire creates a theme part full of genetically modified dinosaurs. I have to say though, and a lot of this is to do with the narration (Scott Brick is a favourite of mine), the audiobook is much more exciting.

Despite the T-Rex making the front cover, it is the velociraptors that stole the show; from seemingly adorable babies to cunning, predator adults. Kudos to Dr Grant, if I was him, I would have left Lex behind - she was incredibly annoying and kept putting them in danger, wee pain!
