The Lost World

The Second book in Michael Crichton’s Jurassic Park series

Synopsis: 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, and the island indefinitely closed to the public. There are rumors that something has survived…

So I went into this book not knowing what to expect.. the last book made it seem like Malcolm died at the end but since this book is like fifty percent about him it’s clear that he didn’t. And thank goodness! Because he’s one of my favourite characters. He’s witty and just a total genius.

I can’t tell wether I liked this one more or not… it didn’t have the same whimsy as the first one did, considering in the first one you’re introduced to the dinosaurs and immersed in the world slowly.. this one was a little more abrupt, since you already know the world. However I did love the amount of action and exciting dinosaur drama in this one!

We were able to explore the dinosaurs behaviours and lives a lot more in this one, we were able to see the more complex lives they have, their survival instincts, habits and their maternal/paternal instincts. We got to see so many more variants of dinosaur than even in the first one, It was so much fun.

The characters are so fun and lively, I loved all of the characters that ended up on the island (minus the the ‘bad guys’… but they get what was coming to them, They deserved every horrible death they got.) but Malcolm and Sarah were amazing! The kids were a fun innocent addition. I loved to dislike —but not hate— Richard.. he was too stupid to be smart and he’s the reason they’re all in this dangerous mess. But even him, I felt bad for at times.

I’m not gonna lie, I have only seen the second Jurassic park movie two or three times, and I do remember liking it, I don’t remember it in great detail…but I know that a lot of the things in the movie vs book are very wrong and very skewed. I highly enjoyed the book and I’m not sure I’ll ever enjoy that movie again after reading this.

I highly enjoyed this book! Definitely recommend.

I rate this book
