Eaters of the dead is my personal favorite.
Congo would probably be a close second.

What about you?

Jurassic park is the book that got me into reading for pleasure. First book i ever read without being forced or assigned. So it gets my vote.

Eaters, Timeline and Jurassic Park are all great. Andromeda Strain was good too, Prey was meh.

his stories are so reliant on cutting-edge-at-the-time technology that most of them are pretty LOL in 2018
Jurassic Park escapes that

I have a student named Eban. I once asked where his name came from. He said it came from a movie called the 13th warrior. I was like, um, yeah I remember that one. It was based on a book called Eaters of the Dead. It was about Vikings. But the dudes name was Ahmad Ibn Fadlan. Spelled Ibn. And really it just means "son of." So your name means "son of," but it's misspelled.

:lol:
