Rated 3 out of 5 by from One of my favorites The Lost World was definitely a fun read overall.

The one negative aspect of the story is that Steven Spielberg asked Crichton to write it so he could make another film, at times reading it felt like that. Just a novel penned together at a request rather than at leisure.
