Books Similar to Michael Crichton's Jurassic Park

I'm re-reading Jurassic Park for the first time in fifteen years or so, and I'm enthralled. I love these sort of monster/adventure stories. Can anyone recommend other novels in the same vein?

Also, does anyone know if he ever started writing a sequel to Lost World before he died? Seems like these days when an author dies the estate finds half-written works and either publish them or hire someone to finish one. Is there a chance we may one day see another Jurassic Park novel with Crichton's writing style?

It's not a book, but have you seen the British TV show, Primeval? I think it is available on Netflix and Amazon Prime. Its about these portals opening up through time. Dinosaurs and other exotic giant creatures are continually coming through into the present. The main characters are battling these incursions while trying to keep the general public from finding out. I found it to be a quite fun little series.

Have you read Crichton's "Andromeda Strain"? It's not about dinosaurs but it does deal with the idea of man fooling about with things he's not ready for.
Spoiler:
Instead of cloning dinosaurs scientists seek germs for germ warfare work via satellites and they get a nasty one. I've always liked the 1970's movie version.

There is a book named "Dino-Land" by Wolfgang Hohlbein and others that started its life as a collection of pulp novels published in 97/98.
It was done to catch the hype over Jurassic Park and at least the first two thirds have lots of dinosaurs in it.

The original is in German.
I don't know if there is a translation available.

Dinosaur Summer by Greg Bear.

It takes place 50 years after the events of Arthur Conan Doyle's The Lost World and the dinosaur craze has died down and one of the last remaining dinosaur circuses is closing down. The protagonist attempts to return the dinosaurs to the wild in Venezuela.

I read a book not that long ago called Watchers by Dean Koontz I quite enjoyed it and it centered around two genetically modified animals escaping from a lab. It's a similar kind of theme with man messing with DNA and the consequences of that.

The Great Zoo of China by Matthew Reilly.
Quote:
It is a secret the Chinese government has been keeping for forty years. They have proven the existence of dragons. Now the Chinese are ready to unveil their astonishing discovery within the greatest zoo ever constructed.

A small group of VIPs and journalists have been brought to the zoo deep within China to see these fabulous creatures for the first time. The visitors are assured by their Chinese hosts that they will be struck with wonder at these beasts, that the dragons are perfectly safe, and that nothing can go wrong. Of course it can't...
