Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from nothing spectacular I was disappointed reading this book. I thoroughly enjoyed the Jurassic Park movies and the first Jurassic Park book, but this one was not the good read I was hoping for. The characters weren't engaging, there wasn't any of the awe or amazement that was present in the first novel. Some of the characters didn't seem to even bat an eyelash when they saw a dinosaur for the first time. There didn't seem to be any real point to this story and I found myself waiting for the 'good parts' to surface but they never did. I also found that the scenes at the beginning of the book were very boring and I had trouble staying interested enough to make it through to the parts where they arrive at the island. All in all, if you don't expect much of a plot, the characters, and don't expect to be knocked off your socks with a really great story.....this book might be for you. If given the choice I would watch The Lost World movie version even though it has it's cheesy moments

Rated 2 out of 5 by from In comparison to the first, BAD. Final Verdict: 5.5/10 An ok thriller that fails to stun or satisfy at most parts. Nothing compared to the first Jurassic Park. Nonetheless, much better than most of the other garbage out there, such as Beloved, Tar Baby or Jazz.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A page turner This book is very interesting especially when scientist Richard Levine discovers something very unusual and sets off to an island to research but gets in danger when he encounters living dinosaurs. While his friends come to rescue him, they discover that a company called In-Gen cloned dinosaurs and had 3 research fields on the island off of Costa Rica. Now Richard Levine and his friends try to get to the top before the other scientists do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Lost World This book is another one of Crichton's masterpieces. This book tell the reader that the dinosaurs have survived, and they are just as dangerous as before. The author also tells us how the biotechnology company was a somewhat failure in cloning the dinosaurs. In my opinion this book was excellent, but not as good as the first one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but not the best... Having read many Michael Crichton's and enjoying Jurassic Park I felt compelled to read this one. IT was a good read but it was not the "can't put it down" type that one has come to expect from this author. I would recommend it only if you read and enjoyed the first book. And yeah, it is nothing like J2: The movie. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Lost World Dr. Ian Malcom, a famous mathmetician,is stranded on an island inhabited by lurking dinosaurs. These dinosaurs are the result of a mass cloning company, in Cuba, named InGen. The owner is a money munching 70 year old man named John Hammond. Ian has come in search of a missing comrade and biologist Richard Levine but Ian has not yet discovered the pheonomineon of the prehistoric creatures. The Lost World is an exhilirating, fast-paced novel because of the many dinosaur encounters as well as many other physical and emotional conficts within the island itself. All you action loving book readers out there, this book is for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely one of his best I enjoyed The Lost World more that Jurassic Park. This book is non-stop action, and very intelligent; I constantly re-read Malcolm's description of evolution and extinction! A definate read for any Crichton fan. Or anyone just looking for a good book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thriller With Thought The sequel to Michael Crichton's bestseller Jurassic Park is the equal, if not the better, of its predecessor. The Lost World has enough action to satiate the adrenaline-seekers, while holding everyone else with the pseudo-realistic science and thought-provoking philosophy. Another excellent techno-thriller!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average, can't compare to Jurassic Parc After reading Jurassic Parc and the Lost World, I would have to say that Jurassic Parc was by far better. The Lost World is an ok book to read but it just doesn't have the complexity and the excitement that the first Jurassic Parc offered. It's not a bad book but it's also not a great book. I guess if you reading about dinosaurs you would propably enjoy the Lost World. And for those who have seen the movie, the book is almost completely different but I thought that the plot from the movie was better.

About the Author

The most famous fictional detective in the world is Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes. However, Doyle was, at best, ambivalent about his immensely successful literary creation and, at worst, resentful that his more "serious" fiction was relatively ignored. Born in Edinburgh, Doyle studied medicine from 1876 to 1881 and received his M.D. in 1885. He worked as a military physician in South Africa during the Boer War and was knighted in 1902 for his exceptional service. Doyle was drawn to writing at an early age. Although he attempted to enter private practice in Southsea, Portsmouth, in 1882, he soon turned to writing in his spare time; it eventually became his profession. As a Liberal Unionist, Doyle ran, unsuccessfully, for Parliament in 1903. During his later years, Doyle became an avowed spiritualist. Doyle sold his first story, "The Mystery of the Sasassa Valley," to Chambers' Journal in 1879. When Doyle published the novel, A Study in Scarlet in 1887, Sherlock Holmes was introduced to an avid public. Doyle is reputed to have used one of his medical professors, Dr. Joseph Bell, as a model for Holmes's character. Eventually, Doyle wrote three additional Holmes novels and five collections of Holmes short stories. A brilliant, though somewhat eccentric, detective, Holmes employs scientific methods of observation and deduction to solve the mysteries that he investigates. Although an "amateur" private detective, he is frequently called upon by Scotland Yard for assistance. H
