Audible Editor Reviews

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

What the Critics Say

"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)

Thank you, Scott Brick

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

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.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Jurassic Park?

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.


Which scene was your favorite?

The raptors and the visitor center.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but at a welcomed 15hr run time it just wasn't practical.


Any additional comments?

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.
