I really have a hard time with Brick's narration style- theres just no emotion or much tonal inflection. Most of his characters sound the same but he tries so thats what makes it hard. This book also seemed poorly edited. Sometimes there was barely a pause between chapters. Love the book and definitely better than either of the last two movies. Kinda wish a certain scientist got eaten though. Arrogance is one of those traits that make T rex hungry and he probably doesn't learn a damn thing from this.

The narrarator is great, can't do better than Brick. The book is sharp with great dialog. The story is sharp and interesting too. Very entertaining and intelligent.
love this book. I really hope that audible can get the first book redone and added to their library. for anyone who hasn't read these books yet, know they are nothing at all like the movies. I love the movies as much as the next person but these books have different just as good stories and personally I like this lost world way better than the movie version.
favorite scene has to be the carnotaurs. super creepy.
It was a fun adventure, and some great visual description. Michael Chrighton isn't known for making sequels but this one keeps you entertained to the very end and is a great addition to his first.
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.
one of my favourite books of all time, just the right balance of science, adventure, suspense. they but butchered the movie so badly, when the third movie came out i was really hoping they would go back to this book for plot or something, but i was disappointed. the only thing i didn't like was the narrator, he is awful. i didn't realize there was another version or i would've definitely bought that instead of just powering through. the book is so good it made up for him, but he's just terrible.
Ive recommended this book to many people. The story is fantastic. Also the audio version is great. The narrator is amazing.
Its a fantastic mix of science and adventure.
He has a great reading voice. His performance isn't to dry but also not too over the top.
Yes, if it wasn't so long I probably would have listened to the whole thing in one sitting.
Amazing book. A must read/listen.
