Jurassic Park Overview

Jurassic Park is a bestselling science-fiction novel written by Michael Crichton and was published in 1990. The book is fictional, but based on the scientific observations of renowned paleontologists John Ostrom, Robert Bakker and Gregory Paul. Michael Crichton also relied on DNA studies and illustrations by other leading scientists but made it clear in his acknowledgements that all of the work is fiction. The work depicts a "what if" scenario that has scientists utilizing the DNA of long dead dinosaurs to create a theme park for tourists. Unfortunately, the creators have not considered that nature finds a way and that tampering with mother nature can have disastrous consequences.
