This book is fantastic and so much better then the film its self becasue there are hell of a lot of stuff they miss off the film that is in the book.
I have this as my favourites on my kindle and I always re-read it every now and again.
if you have the film or seen the film then try the book it self becasue after you read this book you will wish they didn't miss anything off.

This is a must read book. The story follows on from where Jurassic Park (the novel) left off. The Lost World is an action packed adventure from start to finish. If you have seen the film then you have to read the book to see how superior it is. If only the film had been made to the same story line as the book.

This book is so much better than the movie version. As a book the story line (different to that of the film) is more enjoyable. The characters are more believable on paper ; with even a few that weren't used in the film. I enjoyed the mix of science and adventure in the book, there is no T-rex on the streets of San fransico.This a great follow-up to Jurassic Park (which better be released on kindle soon)
When i went to see this at its movie release after reading the book several times already i was disgusted how much it was changed. As Ian Malcolm I find Jeff Goldblum annoying, Didn' t see the point in Vince Vaughan's character who isn't in the book and the girl Kelly, who was suppose to be Malcolm's daughter WTF. Do yourself a favour read the book ignore the film.

Sorry I really liked the book Jurassic Park, but I just couldn't get into this one.
Ian Malcom was killed the book Jurassic Park (died of his wounds) but yet at the beginning of this his survived, from a condition that was so bad everyone else thought him dead.
It was a bit of a stretch.

As the title says, I think I may well have enjoyed reading this more than I did Jurassic Park. It has pretty much the same set of characters (different people in some cases, but identical character roles to fill).

The action is well written and the suspense is equally so. It literally keeps you turning the page and cursing anyone or anything that tears you away from reading. The pace is a little quicker than Jurassic Park and, much like the original, it has some incredibly memorable scenes that will stay with the reader for years to come.

Everyone's favourite dinosaurs such as Raptors and T-rex's make returns, as well as some new arrivals to the series. All in all a very good read.

A great book by Crichton but marred ever so slightly by the rambling scientific stuff every so often. Probably makes sense to more intelligent folks than me but not sure it really added to the overall story.

Maybe spoilers, Malcolm is back, no Hammond is in it, there's not an annoying kid, theres two now, but like the first book they were better on paper - kids again the computer boffs/and the susceptible future.
The Baddies are weak and half arsed however, which is strange from Crichton. Its a jolly good romp to read in the sun if you like Dinosaurs and lost islands and science.
Timeline still remains his best work by far.

I enjoyed reading this book as I am a big fan of the Jurassic Park Movies. Though the first book is quite similar to the film, this book is rather different from the film. On its own though, the book itself is a good read and I would definitely recommend reading it! I'm glad I brought this book and read it.
