The Lost World Author:Michael Crichton 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.
There are rumors that something has survived. . . .
Love, love, love this book! The only reason I am posted it for trade is that I ended up with two copies!! Perfect reading for people who like science, adventure, dinosaurs, and intelligently written prose. Infinitely better than the movie!
If you enjoyed "Jurassic Park", you'll probably like this one. Michael Crichton is (was actually - he died not long ago) an excellent writer who often has interesting things to say, but my eyes started to glaze over 25 pages into "The Lost World". The fault is more with me than with the author; I'm just not that into sci-fi. Didn't finish it.
I know everyone knows the story... Right? Wrong. The books are so much better and scarier than the movies even hinted at. Crichton at his best, struck terror into my heart and brain. Good luck putting it down.
