The Books vs. The Films
#8
Tough question.
I would say books, though.

I loved JP and TLW and, to tell you the truth, I liked "The Lost World: Jurassic Park" more than Crichton's book.
But, as I always say, Jurassic Park is a perfect book, in my humble opinion. It has a perfect balance of mystery, action, science, character development, awe. Crichton caught the right atmosphere for a story about dinosaurs. The result of this is a powerful sense of nostalgia towards a world that we have never seen with our own eyes. I know that it sounds silly to say, but I cannot explain it otherwise. It was the main feeling that pushed me to try to become a paleontologist years ago. Unfortunately for me, I couldn't make my dream true. But the feeling is still there.
That same feeling is not strong enough in The Lost World, that is, above all, a good sequel but not as bright as the first book. It is too slow in the first part and, although it is interesting, lacks the mystery of the first book. I like it but I do not love it and that is why I prefer the Spielberg adventure movie.
"Hammond, after some consideration, I've decided not to endorse your park."
