Re: 2020/08/14 - The Moral Of The Story

Yeah, Crichton's works often struggled to really deliver a strong moral, and Jurassic Park is particularly bad in that regard, as the problem wasn't making dinosaurs, it was people being dumb. I suspect this is why Hammond was made more sympathetic in the movie version, as in the book, his greed was...

Re: 2019/12/06 - My Eyes Have Seen the Glory

I suspect people would trust Kitsune even less if he used that form more often.

He's quite disarming, but he's quite the dangerous fellow, and while he "likes" mortals, he also enjoys messing with and toying with people, including his friends.

One possible question was whether she had any gold or jewels or treasure, which would seem nonsensical to Lois (hence her response) but would make sense in the context of previous transformations.
