really liked it
Read in June, 2008

I love JP, I always will, however I believe Crichton's second novel The Lost World, lacked a JP feeling. I liked TLW, but the overall sequel to JP lacked a lot. It felt more of a "Sir Aurthur Canon Doyle's TLW" than a Jurassic Park novel. I say this because the island(Isla Sorna) is more remote, less like a facility. I love the fact that there was prehistoric animals roaming around but the novel didn't give you a good wonderful feeling like the first novel did. The characters are still fun to read about, but the plot lacked and motivations lacked. It seemed planned out not like JP where you don't know what was going to happen. One of the reasons is that When the second JP movie was coming out, Steven Spielberg actually forced Michael to make a second novel, and by doing so he didn't have a very good idea to begin with.
