This week on Novel Ideas, Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton. The book, not the movie. Did you know that there is a movie? I was shocked too. Join us as we discuss the depths of the various characters, or lack of depths, why 1989 technology is mildly hilarious in 2012, and which character is actually a dick. I mean, aside from the T-Rex or any number of velociraptors. And we have special treat for you this week with guest stars Casey Hanford and Sayeed Khan, two guys who are as qualified to talk about books and dinosaurs as we are.
Music is the Jurassic Park Theme from John William’s excellent score, but I probably didn’t have to tell you that.

I must admit, tagging the post is one of my favorite parts of the week. I’m totally looking for an excuse to add KHAAAAAAAAAAAN! #Ben
