But there are rumors that something has survived.

"Harrowing thrills...fast-paced and engaging." (People)
"Action-packed." (New York Daily News)
"Fast and gripping" (The Washington Post Book World)
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!
Not sure, but maybe Sarah, I think. Because she just DOES, whatever it takes, she gets it done.
As I said, Sarah, because she gets things done right the first time,
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.
Just an overall good listen
Good, exciting, and informative.
I really like all of malcoms informative monologue's
Some thriller moments
I thought this was a good book, but it just didn't hold a candle to the original jurassic park.
entertaining suspenseful intellectual
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.
Towards the end it got tense.
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.
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.
love to shop
I am listening to another book right know and am hoping to start this one soon. I have a flight coming up which I am hoping to spend listending to The Lost World
