In my opinion, even better than Jurassic Park. I thought the action was better paced and it didn't require as much background story. Absolutely loved this series.

This is a great follow up to Jurassic Park. This book once again highlights the folly of science when mixed with greed. It was also great to see the return of a much loved character from the first novel.

Started this tonight. Second one @hannah-leeloo suggested

hannah-leeloo Well makes sense reading this next lol. As my partner it's only right being fully dino involved haha. Jurassic Park knowledge is a much needed qualification lol. Happy ready, don't get too scared 📖📚🙃❤️🦕🦖 8mo
Jackal121 I figured it made sense. There are some intense parts in the first one. Looking forward to this. Shall I wait to watch the movies for now? I've watched them a while ago, but I should watch them again 8mo

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.

Reading this today bc yesterday I went to the Dinosaur Valley State Park to see the dinosaur prints in the river. It was so much fun!! I should have been a paleontologist for sure! I‘m easily fascinated by dinosaur stuff.

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.

What makes you think human beings are sentient and aware? There's no evidence for it. Human beings never think for themselves, they find it too uncomfortable. For the most part, members of our species simply repeat what they are told--and become upset if they are exposed to any different view.

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.

My first finish for the #24in48 readathon! This book was so perfect for this challenge - I couldn‘t put it down! Unlike the original Jurassic Park, in which the book and the movie were both amazing, The Lost World is solidly better than the movie. It was a reread but I still enjoyed the characters, the island, and the new (and old) dinosaurs! I don‘t think I‘ll ever tire of these books ☺️🦖

First challenge of the #24in48 readathon: favorite first lines! This is from my current read, The Lost World, ‘The late twentieth century has witnessed a remarkable growth in scientific interest in the subject of extinction.‘ DUN DUN DUN! Coming up on 4 hours, feelin‘ alright 😉

It‘s a rule for me that no matter where I am or where I am going I have at least one book with me at all times. You never know when you will have a minute of downtime for reading. Well today at work it has been a genuine struggle not to read. Not only because I shouldn‘t be reading at work but because I need to be saving my reading material for #24in48. 😭

I loved Jurassic Park and this one was no different. A tiny bit predictable in some places, but still keeps you on the edge of your seat! The dinosaurs are creepy and cool at the same time. Sarah Harding is kick ass I would read an entire book from her perspective!!

Your friendly neighbourhood dinosaur enthusiast has just treat herself to a new copy of Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton and an Ian Malcom funko pop. 💁🏼‍♀️ What can I say? I can‘t get the beautiful B&N edition I‘ve searched years for, not even for my blood, sweat and tears, so this is the thing to cheer my soul. (I‘m not giving up on that B&N editon though damnit!!) 🖤 #jurassicpark #dinosaurs #bibliophile #bookaddict #booklover #bookblogger

Sophoclessweetheart @whatshesreadingnow It‘s super hard to get here because it‘s from B&N and we don‘t have that in England. We get the odd one on amazon U.K. but never that one and to buy it secondhand costs anything between (e8-90 because it‘s so hard to get hold of here. ?? 2y

They passed a window where they could look out over the plain, at the herds of dinosaurs browsing by the river.
Thorne said, "If they were all destroyed, what's this island?"
"This island," Malcolm said, "is Hammond's dirty little secret. It's the dark side of his park."

One thing that I enjoyed about Jurassic Park was that they mentioned a few times that as children most people can name several dinosaurs and as we age we forget the names. They put several names and how they looked in the Lost World. I thought it was cool! I felt like this book was slower than the first one but still good! 👍

If all you know about the lost world is the 1997 movie, then forget what you know. I loved this book! It had just the right amount of action and suspense, but tons of nerdtastic biology and animal behavior stuff!

I'm about 90% done with the audiobook, so it's time to watch the #movieadaptation and spend the duration critiquing it... hardcore. Can you believe this movie is 20 years old?!

This is satisfying the nerd in me so far; it's more evolutionary biology lesson than high-flying action...which I'm okay with. If you're looking for an action-packed wild tale about dinosaurs chasing and hunting scientists then this probably isn't for you. I read Jurassic Park a few years ago and while I don't remember​ all the details, I do think that resembled the movie pretty closely. 🚙🔬

He gave it to me today in addition to my other gift (Yoshi's Island for my DS!) bc he'd spotted Jurassic Park on my shelf and said this one may be even *better.* Still haven't read JP, but now my brother and my best friend will be bugging me about it so I'd better get busy lol
