I read the first Jurassic Park in Morocco a couple years ago and thought it was a perfect holiday read.
This one isn't much different - the story is quite different from the movie but altogether, I think it's quite a bit better. This isn't an intellectual read by any stretch of the imagination, and I think it's a book I would have loved if I'd read it in my early teens. Oh well, guess I'll read it in my 30's instead.
There was a sequel of sorts released as a videogame, this Let's Play from Research Indicates is absolutely fascinating if you need more dinos in your life.
People getting eaten by velociraptors and t-rexes is always entertaining.
