I've read the book multiple times since the movie and that world still captivates me. So take me to Jurassic Park and give me a Jeep to roam the island with.

The other day, I was laying on the couch while playing a game on my phone. Milo had gotten up on the back of the couch and was walking around up there. I paid him no attention since he does this all the time. And then it happened. Something caught his attention, he jumped, and two nuts were crushed.

I was not happy. Zailey was excited by the commotion and came over to console me by licking my ar... Read more of this blog post »

Interesting, but fell short of expectations

Great writer and some good plots. Could have used one more pass by a good content editor. In other words, there were things missing too many of the stories (I still had questions at the end) and other times
