Clearly I have been sleeping on Michael Crichton! Excuse me while I chomp my way through his backlist.

Jurassic Park was so good – I listened to the audiobook and I had hoped I would love it as much as I loved the film, but I ended up loving it more 😍

Thoroughly entertaining and packed with the right combination of savvy characters and author intelligence, this is obviously a must read (I mean we all know that, but also you still haven’t read the book, so, get going).

This reminded me of Andy Weir’s crafty and engaging way of spinning a far-fetched tale and making you really believe it.

Grant was adorable and loveable, and I have a crush.

The big-wig idiots in charge had zero sympathy from me if a dino came at them.

The kids were the stars of the show (omg Lex, so annoying).

Now off I go to read Jurrasic World, because I can’t get enough of this universe 😍
