Jurassic Park

Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton is so well-known, we can’t even imagine a world without it. Of course, someone had to be the first person to think of it, to make the world and to make it come alive. The book is entertaining, exciting, and dangerously good. The same can be said about some of the movies that were made about it, yet still, I saw all the sequels. Here is some more from Wikipedia.

“In 1989, a series of strange animal attacks occur in Costa Rica and on the nearby fictional island of Isla Nublar,[8] the story’s main setting, one of which is a worker severely injured on a construction project on Isla Nublar, whose employers refuse to disclose any information about. One of the species is eventually identified as a Procompsognathus. Palaeontologist Alan Grant and his paleobotanist graduate student, Ellie Sattler, are contacted to confirm the identification, but are abruptly whisked away by billionaire John Hammond — founder and chief executive officer of International Genetic Technologies, or InGen — for a weekend visit to a “biological preserve” he has established on Isla Nublar.”

I also read The Andromeda Strain.

Here is some more from my exploration of the story structure:

You: researcher and other characters, not really focussed.

Need: Hammond needed to change the world, make dino’s come alive again

Go: go to the park, make the animals live again

Search: show the park, see what is there, explain how it’s done

Find: see what has been done there, amazing

Take: ahhh panic, animals attack, longest part here

Return: fight for survival, barely make it many times

Change: know that nature is not a computer. And some animals are running around the world XD. And island is bombed.
