    It is now six years since the secret disaster at Jurassic Park, six years since the extraordinary dream of science and imagination came to a crashing end - the dinosaurs destroyed, the park dismantled, the island indefinitely closed to the public. But there are rumors that something has survived.

    If you could sum up The Lost World in three words, what would they be?

    entertaining suspenseful intellectual


    What did you like best about this story?

    This was a great listen doesn't end like the movie at all if any one is expecting that, but overall very enjoyable, there is a lot more information about the islands secrets and Ingen.
    I think more people could have died, but the deaths were suspenseful and horrible in a good dinosaur eating kind of way.
    If you like a lot of background and science mixed in with your story this book is a great listen. There are a lot of monologues about evolution and animal behavior that is very interesting.
    The reader was great, he was good at conveying emotion and suspense without being over-dramatic.

  • World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War

    Story
    (4024)

    The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched first-hand experiences of the survivors from those apocalyptic years, traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of 30 million souls, to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet.

    Story
    What would have made World War Z better?

    I thought the stories were almost like a text book cut out. I understand the idea of the book, but it didn't work for me. I didn't connect with any of the characters of story, and was often bored or wanted to skip over information being read to me.
    I think part of it was this book was really hyped up to me and has such good reviews. I'm a big fan of like the walking dead comic and show, and other apocalyptic dramas that focus on the people and what it means to really survive. This book is more of an analysis of steps taken to fight back the zombies as a whole, like military tactics, weapons and politics.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I am going to try The end is nigh It was suggested to me by a friend another post apocalyptic story that sounded a bit more to my taste. I like to be able to relate to the characters and their struggles.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration did match, but did not help to improve anything. Acting of the voice actors was good, but the content made it sound like a textbook.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment and boredom.


    Any additional comments?

    I understand why some people like this book, but if you like character rich books that hit the feels, this book will probably bore you.
