Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thea | 2/15/2014

    " Pretty good, but not as good as the first. Still worth reading though "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jordan | 2/12/2014

    " Jurassic Park was one of my favorite childhood movies. Reading the book made me understand the true knowledge behind the whole book. This book is not only insightful but also a fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annie | 2/10/2014

    " I noticed this book got quite a few bad reviews. Myself- I could barely put it down, it was very exciting and very scarey. Maybe that's because I read it when I was very young, and had an unhealthy fascination for all things dinosaur. My 20 year old self recommends it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kimberly B. | 2/6/2014

    " My third favorite Crichton book after Jurassic Park and Timeline. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 M | 2/6/2014

    " The sequel to the best-seller. Not as elegant as the first foray into resurrecting dinosaurs, but a suitable follow-up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Narendra | 2/3/2014

    " This book is incredibly fast paced and keeps you hooked throughout. It is well written and and make you feel as if you are watching a motion picture but somehow and somewhere it lacks the magic set by its prequel "Jurassic Park". But it gives total entertainment to first time reader and definitely worth to give it a try! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Philip | 1/26/2014

    " The film was pretty good as far as blockbuster sequel films go. But the book is an even better sequel. I think I may have even liked this book slightly better than the original. Fun! just like the movies. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 gagsays | 1/17/2014

    " It was kinda boring. Random stuff happening. I feel movie was much better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Russell Swart | 1/16/2014

    " The movie has nothing to do with this book. I thought this book, as great as Jurrasic Park is, eclipsed the first one. Oh yeah there's no King Kong story here. The movie BLOWS!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gordon Gauss | 1/1/2014

    " Saw this movie long time ago. Book was much more detailed. Just a good entertaining action book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caitlin | 12/24/2013

    " Action packed, fast moving, and well written. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Owen | 12/8/2013

    " I went through a long Michael Chrichton phase in Jr. High maybe part of high school. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cindy Lofgren | 12/5/2013

    " Follow ups are usually not as good as the original blockbuster. I read this so long ago and I don't remember much about it. No way near as good as the first. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nick Black | 11/29/2013

    " Probably the worst sequel I ever read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Darrell | 11/23/2013

    " Not quite as good as "Jurassic Park" in my view; however i know many people that liked this one more. Kind of a violent book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steph | 11/22/2013

    " Not as good as the first. And the movie is completely different. Basically they only used some of the same dinosaurs. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Boneist | 9/20/2013

    " This wasn't as good as Jurassic Park, but it still rattled along and was entertaining enough! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Agent 99 (aka Kd) | 7/25/2013

    " I read one chapter of this book. I was so upset to see that he started the sequal where the movie ended... not his book, that I set it down and never read anything else he wrote. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kenric F | 6/2/2013

    " another example of a classic crichton book. a good sequal equally filled with logic, suspense and adventure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Manish Reddy | 2/18/2013

    " A very gripping book.Loved it!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian Dole | 2/4/2013

    " I liked it, but that might have been because I was still riding high from Jurassic Park. Others seem to hate it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Guntrotingidiot | 10/27/2012

    " It was alright. I liked it better than the movie. A whole lot of differences between them both. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa Mills | 2/10/2012

    " Good book. Dont waste your time seeing the movie, the book puts the movie to shame 100%. Isnt that the way it always is? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greg of A2 | 6/26/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 5/22/2011

    " This book was good don't get me wrong but it feels kind of rushed and the ending was.....confusing to say the least. so yes i much prefer the first novel "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gary | 5/10/2011

    " A worthy sequel to an excellent novel. Even after this one ended, I was hoped Michael Crichton would visit this subject again. "
