I read the Michael Crichton's Jurassic Park and the Lost World a while before the movies. And as usual, the movies deviates from the novel somewhat (San Diego WTF?). Just wondering how reading the books before watching the movies changed your perspective in comparison to those who had only watched the movies. Other Michael Crichton books-turned-movies include; Sphere, Rising Sun, Disclosure, Timeline. Jurrasic Park 3 was never a book by the way.
