Publisher's Summary

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.

©1996 Michael Crichton; (P)2006 Books on Tape

    "Great book"

    Great book on audio. Would highly recommend to anyone who loves a good story. This book has a good mix between proscience and antiscience.

    "Thank goodness it is nothing like the movie!"

    Very well done book and anybody who appreciated the first should like this. Would have been a great movie if they stuck with the story already written by Crichton. The movie is just plain abysmal and I recommend avoiding it at all costs. Unless you read the book first then make fun of how bad the movie was.

    "Far different and superior to the movie."

    Far different variation of the Hollywood series. Far more interesting. Author could have varied the language, felt like a special edition of the first book.

    "Hard to get through"

    Loved jurassic Park! The lost world is just so much of Malcolm talking... Didn't really enjoy any of the characters... Levine wasn't likable... And Malcolm just spouted his theories on everything throughout the whole book. And what was the point of the kids being there? Had a hard time finishing this one and jurassic Park I listened to every opportunity I got. Haven't seen the movie so can't compare it to that. I finished, it was OK. Jurassic Park there was stuff happening all the time, the lost world was mostly just Malcolm talking for about 75% of the book... Now some of it was interesting but it just went on and on. Wasn't bad just wasn't as good as the first one. On to bigger and better things!

    "A solid story. Won't be disappointed."

    Much different than the movie but not as good at the first book. Still a solid listen.

    "Should have stayed lost"

    What a waste of a sequel. Crichton loses the mistique and wonder that was so beautifully crafted in the park. Nothing against the performance, one can only do so much with this yawnfest. Ian Malcom is possibly the most self absorbed, obnoxious wind bag ever written. I could have let it slide as character development but then Crichton adds Levine an equally shallow, bloated wind bag. The two of them spend half the book trolling everything. One has to wonder if Crichton only wrote this book to present his theory on how humanity is worse than the astroid that killed the dinosaurs... no wait now we have to sit through an hour long dialogue explaining that maybe but not really but could be but we theorize that it very well might not be.... aghhh!! The other characters amount to doe eyed dimwitts that I imagined staring blankly at the two protagonists, yawning and looking at their watches, while they get lectured to in the most condescending tone, praying for the dinosaurs to eat them. The most interesting character is the antagonist and his development boils down to the occasional curse thrown at his henchmen. He, along with the suspense / action in this book, appear for about an hour of the total fifteen. I found myself not caring one little bit what happened to these characters and I was so disappointed. Could have been something special but I think something got ... wait for it ... lost ... ha do you like what I did there? Don't waste your money.

    "Just can't match up"

    I loved Jurassic Park. However, some of this book seems to contradict the other, specifically with the behavior of the raptors. That kind of inconsistency is annoying. Overall, the book was solid. Tense at time, long winded at others.

    "Much better then the movie"
    What did you love best about The Lost World?

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


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Towards the end it got tense.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No
