    "Get lost in the past!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, because it's entertaining, and factual all at the same time! So you can enjoy the story, and learn something all at once. What a novel idea!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Not sure, but maybe Sarah, I think. Because she just DOES, whatever it takes, she gets it done.


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    As I said, Sarah, because she gets things done right the first time,


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    They did make a film of this. Don't remember what the tag line was, but I think this audio version was far better than the flim.


    Any additional comments?

    Just an overall good listen

    "Fabulous a fun listen"
    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.

    Much more broader then the movie along with way more detail.

    No

    No

    "Ridiculous"

    I have always liked most of Crichton's books. They are well researched and fun to read(listen) to. This one is seriously flawed. I guess it helps the story to make the dinosaurs have human characteristics so I can live with that. What is unacceptable is having the characters attacked and not giving any notice to it in the interactions between the characters. It is just stupid to have someone tossed off a ship then found by the others and no one is appalled or makes a comment. Will probably finish this but only to see if it gets any worse. Crichton's later works are better. Don't bother with this unless you just want to laugh at the story line.

    "The Lost Over Done World"

    I found this to be long winded . I felt like Mr.Crichton expounded a little much.

    "Chricton gets lost in science, and forgets story"

    Listeners are lost by Chrichton's insistence of over-explaining his dino-science, and its all done through relentless, unnatural dialogues between his one-dimensional / WYSIWYG characters.
