    I finished reading Jurassic Park, the book by Michael Crichton
    and I must say, I didn't expected it to be much better than the movie and
    also with a very diferent plot.
    Currently Im on page 124 of The Lost World.

    I never was much of a book reader untill recently,
    this kind of books can be very entertaining, and I find it refreshing, is like
    watching a movie, but more detailed, and long.

    I wonder if 'The Andromeda Strain', is as Jp.

    The Andromeda Strain was a fun read. Never saw a film version of it though... However, the film version of Sphere was simply dreadful.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    The Andromeda Strain is not like JP. It is an excellent read though, if a little outdated.

    Other authors you can check out would be Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child...starting with The Relic or James Rollins. (Yes I know Rollins is a little cliched, but his books are entertaining and good light reading)

    I thought the book was much better too.

    But then, something pretty much always goes missing when a movie is turned into a book.

    It exists, MN.

    Pretty good flick, if a bit dry.

    All of Crichton's books are great. Ive read most of his books.. Anyone read his latest? State of Fear? The book is so freaken long. And the first third is setting everything up. You dont start the actual plot till after
    blah blah blah... whatever...

    Many people are afraid to read it because of the things it questions.

    Global warming enthusiasts, especially.
