Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton

It’s so good. Brutal, and terrifying, hitting harder than the film does and delving deeper into the chaos theory that Malcolm expands on to the point where you are sort of left wondering if you have any control over anything.

Timeline by Michael Crichton

I can’t believe I haven’t reviewed this one before because I first read it a long, long time ago and have dived back into it a handful of times since. It’s one of those long standing favourites, a bit of comfort reading when you’re not ready for something new. Michael Crichton is a firm favourite of mine, and this being a time travel book, it’s bound to be up there with the best. I love the writing, that it starts out quite sedately albeit with the intriguing mystery, and gradually ramping up as things get hectic and time gets tight.
