In un’isola sperduta al largo del Costa Rica, il miliardario John Hammond costruisce un gigantesco parco di attrazioni biologiche. Grazie ai miracoli dell’ingegneria genetica, nel suo «Jurassic Park» rivivrà un intero ecosistema, compresi i terribili dinosauri carnivori: il gigantesco Tyrannosaurus Rex e i famelici Velociraptor.
In perfetto equilibrio tra la precisione scientifica dei dettagli e un’atmosfera fantastica e avventurosa, Michael Crichton ha scritto un romanzo dal ritmo serratissimo: Jurassic Park cattura il lettore fin dalle prime pagine, trasportandolo in un incubo che nasce dal profondo della preistoria e si proietta su un presente dominato dalle arroganti certezze della scienza.
DA QUESTO LIBRO IL FILM DEL 1993 DIRETTO DA STEVEN SPIELBERG.

Put me down for "liked the movie a little more." "But scientific power is like inherited wealth: attained without discipline. You read what others have done, and you take the next step. You can do it very young. You can make progress very fast. And because you can stand on the shoulders of giants, Leggi tutto
