Dennis Nedry and John Hammond wanted to get rich, while Sal wanted to see her mother; however all wanted to complete their mission no matter what it takes. Dennis Nedry was experienced with the computer, and was one of the computer programmers for Jurassic Park. A reader must know this to understand what role he played in Jurassic Park. The book states, “Nedry had mumbled about doing computers on the island.” (Crichton) Nedry was what someone would call a ´double agent´. He worked for both InGen and BioSyn, and a reader might infer that Dennis Nedry will go against one of those companies.

He was motivated to create Jurassic park because he wanted to see the smiling faces on kids while they look at his park. However, John Hammond was as grumpy as the Grinch. Crichton had a reason to give John Hammond this personality - but why? That is what most readers want to know. Hammond uses persuasive skills to get people to go to his park. For example, “I am going to insist you see it, Dr.Grant. I know you would find it right up your alley.

Readers do not know this, but readers can infer that Sal is sounding a little skeptical with them. Sal also wants to know as much as she can. She digs deep for information throughout the entire book, especially when it is about her mother. “I certainly do know heaps of stories, but I learned most of them from Gramps.” (Creech) This quote shows that Sal must have been very interested to hear stories about her mother, and had most likely really wanted to know about them.
