PostSubject: Dr. Ian Malcolm's Books   Wed May 10, 2017 2:34 am

So, Ian Malcolm is a well known physicist and we can assume author who likes to go to talk shows and talk science based on what we hear in JP but that's never confirmed. In this thread we're talking about books Dr. Malcolm wrote about dinosaurs and not other books.

TLW mentions he broke his NDA by publishing a book about the events and we know people don't believe him.

In JP/// Eric talks to Grant about how he disliked Malcolm's book and calls him "preachy/high on himself" and that he talked too much about Chaos.

In JW we see a book by Malcolm called "God Creates Dinosaurs", but I also read online that Zara "briefly read one of Malcolm's books, during their trip to the hotel.", I don't remember this part but that quote mentions "one of" is it another book? is it about JP?

So how many books did Malcolm have or do we know? Is God Creates Dinosaurs the same book Zara was reading and the one that got him in trouble in the beginning of TLW or is it another novel written after the events of TLW, or are the others just generic novels not dealing with dinosaurs or maybe he has written more than just the two books we know? Let's speculate.

Same with Grant, we do know he had a Dinosaur book released before the events of JP, do we know if he wrote something after JP?

There's no mention of any book in TLW actually. Not in the subway, or in the discussion with Ludlow. It's only implied he spilled the beans on TV, and in unspecified circles. Malcolm also says he didn't earn a cent for any of it.

Also I'd like to add that if you decide to check yourself, the dialogue on the official english-impaired subtitles is not the same as in the actual spoken dialogue between characters and leaves quite a bit out. If you're not fluent in english it may take few tries to hear every word they say, particularly in that first scene with Malcolm and Ludlow where they both speak quietly, fast paced and speak over each other. But anyway, it doesn't really change the matter we're discussing here

Well in the subway where Malcolm is mocked by the guy after he says 'I believed you' I always took that as he was referring to him trying to go public

I don't know. I imagine a boring book about how he was right all the time and blablabla some anti-science stuff and moral debates...

He already had gone public, on TV and wherever else, what is what that guy was talking about. But there is no reference to a BOOK in the film

Oh, I was mostly going by memory and some quick google searches when I wrote the OP so yeah some of the information may be wrong.

I was still wondering what the fandom mostly thought about it. But it seems we don't really know besides the one book we see in the movie that is about Dinosaurs.

Yeah there's no knowing whether the JP3 book is the same as the JW book. Maybe he's only written one book, maybe two, maybe 15.

We know for a fact that Grant had published a book about dinosaurs before the events of JP but I get the impression both Grant and Malcolm wrote books before and after JP. I'd say both of those characters would have written their accounts of what happened on Isla Nublar. So i'm assuming both these guys have at least 2 books minimum
