I enjoyed The Lost World movie, but the book is so much better. And the two are almost entirely different. As far as the narration goes, Scott Brick delivers a solid performance here, but it isn't anything spectacular.
This book is the source of many of my nightmares. Dinosaurs may have gone extinct 65 million years ago, but that doesn't stop them from showing up in my dreams. That is because some of the scenes in this book are absolutely terrifying. It isn't a horror book though. It is a sophisticated science fiction thriller. You'll probably end up even learning a thing or two from this book. That's because Crichton manages to weave in a lot of real science into a very exciting story.
Of course, make sure you listen to or read Jurassic Park first. It isn't fundamental to the understanding of The Lost World, but it is such an incredible story that you'll simply be missing out if you don't.
Stephen Fry delivers an absolutely phenomenal narration to what is one of the best books ever written. I've tried to listen to the sequels, but they are just not the same without the brilliant narration by Fry. Honestly, I think that the performance by Fry makes this audiobook the best way to experience Douglas Adams' one of a kind story.
This book is pure fun. Come discover the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything. It is here, right in this book!
Richard Dawkins creates a sense of awe and wonder of the universe that we live in, while dispelling the many myths and fairytales that have crept up over the history of humanity. The true story is far more exciting than the false myths that are perpetuated throughout societies.
The narration is outstanding and is among the most professional that I have heard. Richard and Lalla are an excellent team and a true joy to listen to.
This book covers a range of subjects such as evolution, what a rainbow is, how we know the distance to different stars and more. Several myths are examined as well, but there is no actual "magic" here. Rather, Dawkins masterfully shows how everything has a natural and rational explanation behind it.
I absolutely enjoyed this audiobook and recommend it listeners of all ages.
