O joy of joys! I knew there was a secret to winning Jarom back. I just had to read Jurassic Park. I finished it just after we got back together. See? I told you!
Ok, so aside from that, the book was fantastic. Much more philosophic than the movie - but, the movie was meant to be full of action, so that's understandable. I hated John Hammond and loved Ian Malcolm. We watched the movie together after I was done reading, and I definitely think it's a well-written, well-thought-out book that translated nicely into something people would enjoy watching.
