Audie Award, Science Fiction, 2016
An astonishing technique for recovering and cloning dinosaur DNA has been discovered. Now humankind's most thrilling fantasies have come true. Creatures extinct for eons roam Jurassic Park with their awesome presence and profound mystery, and all the world can visit them - for a price.
Until something goes wrong....
In Jurassic Park, Michael Crichton taps all his mesmerizing talent and scientific brilliance to create his most electrifying technothriller.
Editors Select, May 2015 - Years ago, as I was just starting to explore the genre of sci-fi, my best friend (a huge Crichton fan) urged me to read Jurassic Park – the basis, of course, for the blockbuster film franchise. I'm not too ashamed to admit that the movie terrified me as a kid, but in many ways, the novel is even more frightening, as it relies more heavily on the science that makes Jurassic Park possible – and very unstable – adding an unsettling dose of reality to this cautionary tale. I'm so excited to relive this book in audio as it’s released unabridged for the very first time with the incredible Scott Brick narrating – providing the perfect measured, authoritative voice for such a science-heavy listen. And with Jurassic World coming this summer, there's simply no better time to dive in to this classic. Sam, Audible Editor
"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." (AudioFile)

WAITED YEARS FOR THIS!
I've listened to John Heard's Abridged version of this book for YEARS. I've listened to it about 100 times. It's a CLASSIC. Now we have the FULL VERSION!
GET THIS RIGHT AWAY! It's a million times better than the amazing movie.
Thank you, Scott Brick
The story isn't new, but Scott Brick brings new life into this great story. Whether hearing this story for the first time or revising a classic, this presentation is top notch.
Too many great moments, however one of my favorites is Malcolm revealing to the operators that their system is flawed and there are far more dinosaurs than they expected.
The raptors and the visitor center.
Yes, but at a welcomed 15hr run time it just wasn't practical.
If you have listened to the previous recording that sounded like a virtual home real estate salesperson recounted the events of Jurassic Park, you will be thankful for Scott Brick. If you've listened to The Lost World or any of the Ender's series you already know of Brick and how he really brings a story to life.
