    I find a lot of people discuss the resurrection of Ian Malcolm in their reviews, and I d like to throw in my two cents It s true, Malcolm is mentioned as dead at the end of Jurassic Park To be exact, Muldoon is telling Grant what s happened to everyone else as they re flying away in the helicopter What about Malcolm Grant said Muldoon shook his head.The epilogue mentions the Costa Rican government not permitting the burial of John Hammond or Ian Malcolm amongst a list of other ways they dragged [...]

    The story goes that Steven Spielberg flush with the success of the first Jurassic Park movie, itself an adaptation of a Michael Chrichton novel, decided to try and repeat his success by commissioning the author to write a sequel to his original novel which the first movie was based on which they could then adapt into a movie.Whether or not that s true I cannot say but I will say that do not base your initial judgement of this book or the prospect of reading it on the lacklustre utter turkey that [...]

    WOW, this was disappointing.I remembered going into this book that I had enjoyed the film version of the original Jurrasic Park far than the book a rather unusual situation for me I had a slight feeling of apprehension, but I ignored it Even if I hadn t, though, it wouldn t have prepared me for the frustration and disappointment of this story.Let me get this point out right from the start The plot resolves itself WAY too quickly, as though something that is suddenly obvious, easy to think of, a [...]

    The Lost World is not a very good book The story is a slog to start and the characters are very weak So weak that if any of them had actually been eaten by the constantly hungry dinosaurs I would ve been like shrug As the story progressed and I waited impatiently to find out would they actually solve the mystery of the missing Dr Levine and go to the island of dinosaurs as if there was a chance of that not happening I was introduced to a series of these weak characters and it then became a strug [...]

    Michael Crichton always gives good science and when you add in dinosaurs, it should be great But it s not It s a slow burner, no action for the first 200 pages, just lots of science However, I like the way he educates the reader and tries to add a story in there For instance, I now know why human babies are totally helpless for the first couple of years of their lives, whereas some baby animals can walk a few minutes after birth you ll have to read the book to find out why.It s very obvious that [...]

    This might turn out to be one of my favorite books of all time I feel like there was so much to love I don t care if he was just cashing in on the success of the Jurassic Park movie I m not even mad that Malcolm s death was retconned What I m mad about, is that Hollywood took a beautiful book and hacked it into pieces and tried to dazzle us with animatronic dinosaurs Okay so I like animatronic dinosaurs too, but still there was no need.The plot is this Dr Levine suspects something happened that [...]

    I have to say that I do enjoy the writing style of Michael Crichton and although he has had his share of varying popularity I always feel I can trust his writing to deliver even if to some that feels safe and uninspiring Anyway I digress this was the second of his Jurassic Park novels and again a loose basis for the film it still fascinates me how the first book and film diverge, digressing again , however the film was such a success there is little of surprise to the book, for me it was the pa [...]

    Trigger warnings violence, gore, near drowning, seriously you guys, there s so much gore.30 10 2017On reread, I m bumping this up to 4.25 stars It s ten bazillion times better than the truly terrible movie of the same name I love the two kids in the story they re smart and brave and save the day a bunch of times And Sarah Harding is a pretty great alternative to Ellie Sattler It s a little slower to get going than Jurassic Park, but it s still pretty damned fabulous 24 9 2016It takes a decent ch [...]

    What I learned from The Lost World The only people worthy of surviving in Crichton s world are geniuses Everyone else is destined to be fodder feed for terrorizing thunder lizards.The Lost World suffers from two things First off, if you ve ever read Jurassic Park, then you know that TLW s protagonist, Ian Malcolm, is, in fact, dead That s right he died in Jurassic Park, but since they couldn t convince Sam Neill to return for the movie, Crichton rewrote history so that Malcolm somehow survived n [...]

    Not even close to as amazing as the first book, but this still has some great dino moments and absolutely fascinating ideas.WARNING This review contains unhidden spoilers for Jurassic Park.The sequel is a little slow to get into It s been six years since the events of the first book, but it s all been covered up and the people involved deny having been a part of anything Hammond has stayed dead unlike Malcolm so we need a new reason to head back into dino territory and that reason comes in the f [...]

    Michael Crichton s The Lost World is an interesting piece of work On the one hand, it is an exciting, page gripping, edge of the seat thriller reminiscent of the first Jurassic Park novel On the other hand, it is exactly that reminiscent of the first Jurassic Park novel In many ways, it is merely a rehash of the original Ian Malcolm returns, as does Dodgson, there are other dinosaur and mammalian experts involved of course, they are all considered the best in the world , and the story could not [...]

    I still maintain that without Ian Malcolm this book would ve received a 2 2.5 star rating because without his snark I would ve been bored to deathhhh As it is, 4 stars feels generous but that ending just put me in a good mood Good book, not sure it was necessary because nothing will top the original, but Malcolm spits so much truth about theories and what humans think we know that I d say it deserves a read if you liked Jurassic Park.Can we have the new Jurassic World movie now plz

    In case you missed it, not too long ago I was raving about Jurassic Park I hadn t read the book before and was instantly obsessed Needless to say, I was quick to pick up The Lost World, because sequels dinosaurs While I didn t end up obsessing over The Lost World quite as much as JP, the 12 year old boy in me was still satisfied by T Rex scares, human eating dinosaurs, and terrifying AF raptors.What I didn t like quite as much It seemed just a tad bit science y Lots and lots of talk about thin [...]

    Note to self if I am EVER stuck on an island with dinosaurs, do not be a jerk or I m guaranteed to be eaten by a T Rex Also, if I ever need to look up anything on a computer, ask a kid because apparently adults cannot operate them.The Jurassic Park adventures are always fun One thing I especially liked about this book is the woman scientist was one of the strongest and most competent of the team The movie drove me crazy because the so called African animal expert took blood soaked stuff INTO HER [...]

    Well to be honest, I had watched the film adaptation before reading the novel I loved the film especially with the Big Rex attacking my hometown Sadly the news never reported it Now I had begun reading it kind of late, since I could only find a copy of it at BarnesNobels but I begun reading Now when I did read the novel I tried to clear my mind and not try to expect alot from it However when I actually did get to reading the Lost World I was slightly dissapointed To be frank I think I was expect [...]

    Jurassic Park was pretty good, but this book was rather poor It reads like a bad movie The author is so intent upon pushing Chaos Theory upon the reader that he often forces the characters to behave way, way, WAY out of their habits in order to force things to go wrong.People suddenly do really stupid things People forget that they have weapons All attempts to prepare for a situation automatically fail, because it s completely impossible not just improbable for a prepared individual to actually [...]

    Having recently re read Jurassic Park, I realized that I had never bothered with the sequel I am glad I did but it wasn t all that great It did not measure up to the 1st one at all There is far less action and WAY talk.I felt that this was Crighton s way of spewing some interesting and some not so interesting facts out into the world It seemed that he needed his readers to know all about complicated math theorems, evolution and extinction, et al Sadly he used the character, Ian Malcolm as his p [...]

    The Lost World takes place six years after the Jurassic Park incident, and just like in the movie version, Dr Alan Grant and Dr Sattler did not return but Dr Ian Malcolm does return for his role The Lost World was an entertaining read, although I ll say not as good as Jurassic Park, for a number of reasons, but I won t go into all of them I found myself skipping through some of the unnecessary parts that weren t really important to the story but when I came to some of the important parts I was h [...]

    Quando i dinosauri dominavano la terra Divertente intrattenimento da leggere sotto l ombrellone.Persa completamente la profondit contenutistica dell opera precedente, l infausto ritorno a Isla Sorna promette frizzanti guazzabugli preistorici con dinosauri esagitati e piuttosto birichini.Certo, lo svolgimento piuttosto scolastico e non aiuta l oramai assente fattore sorpresa vantaggio di cui il primo libro e relativo adattamento cinematografico hanno goduto.

    Read it, liked it, Jurassic Park was better What I loved about this book and still remember pretty well it taught me about Chaos Theory, which fascinated me for quite a while after reading this.

    For me, a disappointment after the first Jurassic Park, but still a great read.

    Obviously, there are braver souls than me, even if they are fictional I m content to read about these characters who willingly share space with T Rex and Velociraptors It s safe in my armchair and I don t need to worry about being some dinosaur s next lunch.There were thrills and chills, and there was science and theory Get the adrenaline up, then bore us to tears with dry facts Perhaps it s a good balance.Still, it was fun to imagine.

    Disclaimer This book and the corresponding movie have almost nothing to do with each other The film sequel was inspired by the fictional events here but is not based on them Lose that expectation now.Compared to Jurassic Park, this book was slower to start out It didn t grab me right away like the first story I think that was because several new characters and storylines came into play But once the pace picked up, it picked up PDQ It goes from introducing the new characters and preparing them fo [...]

    The first book ended on a cliffhanger This one picks up six years later What was Grant doing during all that time No one knows, because he s not even in this book I felt kind of lied to when this book didn t pick up where the last one leaves off view spoiler And bringing Malcolm back to life was kind of ridiculous He was my favorite character in the last one, so I didn t complain too much But, seriously, he was dead Like, they left his corpse on the island and then BOMBED the island dead And wha [...]

    I know the saying, It is a must read, is overused and often unworthy of the story it s applied to However I can not think of a better way to describe this novel you simply must read it I had already the pleasure of watching and adoring the movie franchise I was apprehensive about this series because it s a recurring issue that if you have seen the movie the the read is a slow one That is absolutely not the case with this series You get to discover your favorite characters in a deeper sense Dr Ia [...]

    Book Him Danno
    Great start, the book was go go go and then stop It was as if the author got to a certain page count and quit I loved the suspense and then bammmm it was over just like that The ending was lame and it ruined the book for me The end is nothing like the movie.

    Stacy
    Great read

    Malcolm, terrorised beyond belief by his experiences on Isla Nublar, decides that once is never enough and that it s high time he stopped, y know, not almost dying all the time in his newly won civilian life So he goes back to play amongst the dinosaurs How d he ever make it off Isla Nublar in the first place It got bombed back to the Cretaceous period, and it is acknowledged in this puny follow up to Jurassic Park that everything on the island was destroyed by said bombing, but Malcolm survived [...]

    This book makes me wonder if Crichton has ever had a conversation with another person This book is set over a couple of days, but in this time the characters give so many long winded speaches and talk about utterly pointless topics, it ruins the story This book is the most entertaining of all the author s books, that i ve read anyway Though i find it rather unjust for him to mock Jurrassic Park the movie by remarking how rediculious it is to think that T Rex was dependant on movment and then tak [...]

    Anastacia
    First, I had to wrap my head around the fact that the book was very different from the movie I know, I know but I fell into the trap all the same In the first book, most of the movie characters get killed off, so there are new characters in this one, other than Ian who I do like I just did not like anyone in this book, at all Levine was an idiot, had no common sense, completely didn t care about other human beings, was obsessed, and just BLAH Sarah Levine was just so smart, so strong, so knowled [...]
