I love the way Michael wrote. I read Jurassic Park a couple of years ago and realized how much more epic the book is than the movie (which I also adore). The Lost World, though it has lower ratings, gets 5 stars from me also. I read this 400 page book in days. I read it for hours at a time. It is fantastic.

Best $3 I ever spent. I look forward to reading more of his books now (though I might not like them as much, I love dinosaurs).


This book is absolutely NOTHING like the movie. The book Jurassic Park had some similarities, but The Lost World is nothing like the movie. The only loose similarity is that "The Lost World" was Isla Sorna. The plot in this book was so much richer than the movie. The movies are more about the wow factor and the special effects, whereas Crichton's books were full of science and theories with a lot of adventure as well.
