"I was sorry to cut short the celebrations in mathematics departments around the country," he later said, "but it turned out I was only slightly dead." - Dr. Ian Malcolm

The Jurassic Park movies have been some of my favourites since I was little and I rewatch them yearly. I finally decided to read Jurassic Park last year and I quite enjoyed and I'm keen to read The Lost World this year!

LauraBrook @Reggie Thanks! I had to help my neighbors last night and then I fell asleep very early, so I have to speed-read the second half in the next two hours. I‘ll probably end up googling the end. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 7mo

This was a great book, it was based on a multiple series of books by Michael Crichton. this book is about a world filled with genetically engineered dinosaurs, they were created through a Lab company called ‘InGen‘ this company uses accident fossils and extract DNA from them to create REAL LIFE DINOSAURS! this book is mainly based around a theme park that has been taken over by dinosaurs to create a lost or forgotten world filled with dinosaurs!

nathan.schreiber i recommend this book to people who enjoy adventure as well as obviously lots of action packed dinosaurs! 14mo
nathan.schreiber the point of view in this novel would be first person, because the protagonist is the one writing the book after what he experienced in the lost island 14mo

The books are so different from the movies but I actually love them! They are so well written, the characters are similar to the movies but different enough that I can‘t help but read more, I‘d definitely recommend them to anyone who is a fan of the Jurassic park/world franchise!

While Jurassic Park sends readers along on a test run of theme park that goes very very wrong, The Lost World gives us a glimpse at the abandoned Site B, where the corporation began their tests for the park. The Lost World is an all around great read! I loved that the terror really sinks its claws into the reader and drags them through to the very end.

I'm such a fan of this series and the original movies. 💚 Michael Crichton delivers a world full of magic once again, and horror, as humans believe they are better than Mother Nature and tamper with things they should not touch.

Although I do love the first book more, this still makes for an excellent read, and truth be told, I'm always cheering for the dinosaurs to win in the end. 😀

Day 3: For fun, I am going to post one book per day from my extensive to-be-read collection. No description and providing no reason for wanting to read it, I just do. Some will be old, some will be new. Don‘t judge me - I have a lot of books. Join the fun if you want. #bookstoread #tbrpile @StaceyKondla

vivastory I remember reading Jurassic Park, but I don't know if I read this one... 2y
Cortg @vivastory I read the first one a couple years ago. My neighbor told me these were her favorite books and I thought that odd and had to see what her interest was in them. I enjoyed the first one. I need to crack this one open soon. Unlike the movies, there are only two books. (edited) 2y

Jurassic Park is one of my favourite books, so I was a bit scared of reading the second book. Will it ruin the first one?

Well, Crichton doesn't ruin anything. He simply knows what he's doing.

This one is a tiny bit less scientifical and therefore targets a wider audience. It is still a book written by Michael Crichton, so facts are important and a huge part of the story. Yep, I loved it.

I‘ll call this a pick, but I liked the first one so much more. The constant interruptions for science and theory took away from the story rather than adding to it. I can promise you that if I am dying from a dinosaur bite I will not be talking to you about evolution. That said there was still a lot of dinosaur awesomeness in this book, so it was worth reading.

TheAromaofBooks I definitely felt the same way about this one! I liked a lot about the concept of the dinosaur part of the story, but the endless theorizing! About fifty pages needed edited OUT of this book haha 2y

I can't believe that the carry-over character from the first book was the person who drove me the most crazy! The actual story & action in this book was great fun, but listening to pages of pompous prosing by the great Dr. Ian Malcolm really dragged down the pace. Some of what he said was important to the story, but a lot of it felt like padding. Would people really sit around & listen to multi-page lectures when they could be DINOSAUR WATCHING?!

TheAromaofBooks @Bookwormjillk - It just seemed unlikely that people, including two children, would rather sit in a dark trailer listening to him prose on about various scientific theories about extinction instead of being out watching real, live, honest-to-goodness DINOSAURS! 🙄 2y

jb72 And what did you think of Jurassic Park? 2y
TheAromaofBooks @jb72 - Overall quite enjoyed it. It definitely has its flaws (like philosophizing about chaos theory during a velociraptor attack), and the ending felt awkward (“we just survived a dinosaur attack so let's go visit the nesting site of the most dangerous dinosaurs who almost killed us“?!?!), but I was willing to roll with it for the most part. What about you? 2y

jb72 @TheAromaofBooks I really disliked the girl in the book. She was annoying. I thought the kid characters were better in the movie. Otherwise I really liked it. 2y
TheAromaofBooks @jb72 - Oh my gosh, right?? Especially when her brother is doing this critical stuff with the computers and she just keeps jumping around and yelling at him to do something?! I wanted to shake her haha It's been literally at least 20 years since I saw the movie, so I don't really remember it at all. Now that I've read the book, I want to watch the movie again to compare! 2y

Ian Malcolm is back!!! I loved this sequel, I was so excited to read this after I finished Jurassic Park. Of course, this was different from the movie but it was still good!!! It included a map, which was nice. I always love a good map! I loved most of the new characters, Arby and Dr. Thorne especially. Levine, I could have done without 😑 but he was the reason they were there. The only thing missing? Dr. Alan Grant 😂

Took this guy out for a little afternoon lunch while his dad and sisters went tubing. We had a nice time talking about nature, serial killers, and books. I've been getting him into reading more than just informative texts like nature books and encyclopedias and we got to discuss some potential future reads. Last week he finished Jurassic Park and tomorrow he will start the sequel.

Not my favorite of the two but still a really great story! I felt like the last 150pgs went on FOREVER but had a couple of really great scenes. Definitely don't read if you want to compare it to the movie version. It's WAY different but holds up on its own.

Mehso-so

An annoying scientist, Levine thought the possibility of a lost world, of dinosaurs could exist. There have been several reports of odd, large lizard-like creatures that are being found, and immediately destroyed by the government. This has put in motion Levine and his team of scientist (including Malcolm) to search, find and study this mystery untouched by extinction. Once found, the island is a crazy, thrilling ride. Not everyone gets out alive!

I am so confused... 5 movies from 2 books, and I really cannot tell how they used the second book at all?! 100pgs in and... nothing. Don't get me wrong, I like it, but why? It would've made a good movie, well, probably. It has the suspense. 🤔📚

Just finished this one on audio! Like the first one, it's not completely accurate or realistic (especially with more recent findings in paleontology, which I know because I have a dinosaur-obsessed child), but it was still fun and scientific enough to provide suspension of disbelief. Does anyone have other dinosaur book suggestions? Preferably adult books, but MR and YA could work, and they should be somewhat realistic--more science than fantasy.
