    I find a lot of people discuss the resurrection of Ian Malcolm in their reviews, and I d like to throw in my two cents It s true, Malcolm is mentioned as dead at the end of Jurassic Park To be exact, Muldoon is telling Grant what s happened to everyone else as they re flying away in the helicopter What about Malcolm Grant said Muldoon shook his head.The epilogue mentions the Costa Rican government not permitting the burial of John Hammond or Ian Malcolm amongst a list of other ways they dragged their feet and covered things up But that s it.My point is this it s not as if Crichton tricked us by delivering a long death scene where Ian Malcolm said his last goodbyes and made some final point about evolution and chaos theory then got lazy and just reintroduced Malcolm into the next book Malcolm s death in JP was not seen, and only vaguely mentioned unlike every other major ch...

    The story goes that Steven Spielberg flush with the success of the first Jurassic Park movie, itself an adaptation of a Michael Chrichton novel, decided to try and repeat his success by commissioning the author to write a sequel to his original novel which the first movie was based on which they could then adapt into a movie.Whether or not that s true I cannot say but I will say that do not base your initial judgement of this book or the prospect of reading it on the lacklustre utter turkey that the film turned out to be.In many respects, the novel is everything the film should have been and wasn t Not only did Spielberg fiddle with a lot of the key elements of the story but completely remove some of the best parts of the whole story I won t go into details as it ll only include spoilers but I ve lost track of how many times I ve read...

    WOW, this was disappointing.I remembered going into this book that I had enjoyed the film version of the original Jurrasic Park far than the book a rather unusual situation for me I had a slight feeling of apprehension, but I ignored it Even if I hadn t, though, it wouldn t have prepared me for the frustration and disappointment of this story.Let me get this point out right from the start The plot resolves itself WAY too quickly, as though something that is suddenly obvious, easy to think of, and even easier to find was completely hidden from consciousness since the characters first opportunity to think of it from about a fifth of the way into the book.Additionally, the characters pose some very interesting questions during their experiences that would be fodder for quite interesting discussions or even intriguing scientific theory discovery in the book For instance, why are there so many predators on the island Why do they see so few carcasses What went wrong on the island Why does the raptor nest look the way it does That...

    The Lost World is not a very good book The story is a slog to start and the characters are very weak So weak that if any of them had actually been eaten by the constantly hungry dinosaurs I would ve been like shrug As the story progressed and I waited impatiently to find out would they actually solve the mystery of the missing Dr Levine and go to the island of dinosaurs as if there was a chance of that not happening I was introduced to a series of these weak characters and it then became a struggle to decide who I wanted to be eaten first.Initially I really wanted one or both of the two genius kids to get chomped Their place in the book was so formulaic, so PC, and so contrived that it marred the over all story They were there simply to add some emotion to a flat read It didn t work since you just knew neither of them would die Side note Every author should kill a main well liked character every 5 or 6 books just to keep the possibility out there The next on my list of those characters who I wished would just get torn to shreds was Richard Levine, who was a know it all bore It would ve been good for him to have been killed very early in the book maybe chapter 4 just as long as he didn t linger in his demise Whenever Levine opened his mouth he would go on and on, until I found myself skimming Third on my hit list was ...

    This might turn out to be one of my favorite books of all time I feel like there was so much to love I don t care if he was just cashing in on the success of the Jurassic Park movie I m not even mad that Malcolm s death was retconned What I m mad about, is that Hollywood took a beautiful book and hacked it into pieces and tried to dazzle us with animatronic dinosaurs Okay so I like animatronic dinosaurs too, but still there was no need.The plot is this Dr Levine suspects something happened that involved Dr Ian Malcolm in Costa Rica six years ago Of course, Malcolm denies it because NDAs and all that But he says Get me physical proof of a dinosaur Lost World and I ll help you on your Costa Rican dinosaur expedition So Levine snoops and snoops and eventually gets Malcolm the evidence he required Dinosaur chaos ensues Meanwhile, those bad guys over at Biosyn still want all the Dino tech for themselves, so they are in the distant background doing bad stuff.The science I found all Malcolm s musings on Chaos theory and order absolutely fascinating Crichton makes it very accessible to the reader in a way that is thought provoking but also not difficult to understand I m glad he was resurrected because truth be told, he s a much interesting character than ...

    I will start my review by saying that I did not enjoy this novel nearly as much as the first book, Jurassic Park While this was an incredibly easy and fast read, I would have preferred if Crichton had cut roughly a hundred pages of additional information that, in my opinion, did not add to the story Other than that, wow What an adrenaline charging, action packed book Cricht...

    Trigger warnings violence, blood, death, gore, near drowning, gore, animal death, seriously you guys there s so much gore.11 11 2018Sticking with 4.25 stars this time I love this story a lot, and it s really interesting to see all the ways that Spielberg took a surprisingly solid story and turned it into a steaming turd of a film 30 10 2017On reread, I m bumping this up to 4.25 stars It s ten bazillion times better than the truly terrible movie of the same name I love the two kids in the story they re smart and brave and save the day a bunch of times And Sarah Harding is a pretty great alternative to Ellie Sattler It s a little slower to get going than Jurassic Park, but it s still pretty damned fabulous 24 9 2016It takes a decent chunk of time for the story to get going in this one, but once it does, it s pretty damned fabulous I mean, it s not Jurassic Park But really, it was never going to be And despite the big T.rexes kicking the trailer off a cliff scene, there seem to be less interactions with dinosaurs than there are in Jurassic Park Still, it s definitely worth a look Honestly, I think my favourite thing in this book is something that I only noticed on this reread somewhere around the turn of the century, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote a very silly but thoroughly enjoyable adventure novel called The Lost World in which a group of explorers travel to South America and discover a plateau on which dinosaurs still live They ve been largely domes...

    4.5 I read Jurassic Park in July of 2017 and really enjoyed it, so I have no idea why it took me close to 2 years to get to The Lost World which I buddy read with my friend Erica but I finally got to it, and I loved it even than the first book I never watched the movies growing up, so I watched the first movie after reading the first book and now that i ve finally read The Lost World I can continue with the movies I really enjoy the writing in these novels I find it easy to read and get lost in, even when the science is thrown in I find the plots to be pretty believable as much as bringing dinosaurs back to life can be and it to have a nice steady pace that slowly rackets up the tension.I loved Arby, the genius black boy, and Kelly 13 I think year old girl and Dr Sarah Harding Definitely my favorite characters I really enjoyed these particular passages too. possible spoilers. Malcolm Wheezed his arms around her neck were trembling He said, you re very strong But still feminine, she said, grimly and That s very good, Harding said I think these people owe you their lives Not really, Kelly said, with a little shrug.Sarah shot her a look All your life, other people will try to take your accomplishments away from you Don t you take it away from yourself Those sound pretty damn feminist if you ask me It had moments of tension, moments of hil...

    Michael Crichton always gives good science and when you add in dinosaurs, it should be great But it s not It s a slow burner, no action for the first 200 pages, just lots of science However, I like the way he educates the reader and tries to add a story in there For instance, I now know why human babies are totally helpless for the first couple of years of their lives, whereas some baby animals can walk a few minutes after birth you ll have to read the book to find out why.It s very obvious that he is ful...

    I have to say that I do enjoy the writing style of Michael Crichton and although he has had his share of varying popularity I always feel I can trust his writing to deliver even if to some that feels safe and uninspiring Anyway I digress this was the second of his Jurassic Park novels and again a loose basis for the film it still fascinates me how the first book and film diverge, digressing again , however the film was such a success there is little of surprise to the book, for me it was the pace.The book very quickly sets the scene and then throws you to the raptors as it were with action happening fast and nonstop Now this could garner criticism in that its just one long theme park ride but if you are short of time to invest in characters or complex plots yet want something well written then this is ideal and at the moment...
