It is now six years since the secret disaster at Jurassic Park, six years since the extraordinary dream of science and imagination came to a crashing end--the dinosaurs destroyed, the park dismantled, the island indefinitely closed to the public.
There are rumors that something has survived. . . .

Quotes & Awards

  • “An edge-of-the-seat tale.”

    St. Petersburg Times

  • “What could be better than a dinosaur on a beach? Scott Brick describing the dinosaur, that’s what. We’re in luck, then, as Brick performs his usual magic with ferocious beasts, mad scientists, and mere mortals in this bestselling sequel to Jurassic Park…Brick delivers the novel’s science and pseudoscience in a clipped, authoritative manner that makes it all accessible. He offers fun vocal portraits of the characters, including enthusiastic kids and a reedy-voiced crazy paleontologist. And when it comes to action—pow!—he’s all in. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”

    " Another good science companion with a disclaimer: it's f-ing Crichton. I kid, I kid. Seriously both Jurassic Park and The Lost World are good primers for the on-the-fence science-minded nerd. They're both strong parables that help define and refine the discriminating and skeptical mind. Stepping stones if you will. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth | 2/13/2014

    " My favorite Michael Crichton of all, mainly because his heroine, Sarah Harding, is one of my all-time favorite female characters of all time. So tough, smart, quick-thinking, quick-acting: "Sarah Harding never gave up. Never." Damn straight she doesn't. "

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

    " Not as good as the first book, but not nearly as bad as the movie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roxanne | 1/23/2014

    " Great novel just like the first. Like the previous one, I read this one quite young so believe I didn't quite fully understand it. My love for dinosaurs means that I will pick this up again one day. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pedro | 1/20/2014

    " I thought it was better than the first book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 1/18/2014

    " Great read, though sometimes a little too scientific. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joey | 1/18/2014

    " i read this and the first one three times by the time i was in 6th grade "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Terry | 1/9/2014

    " Followup to Jurrasic Park. Still pretty good. I enjoyed it when I was reading everything I could by Crischton. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cindy | 1/5/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sean | 12/24/2013

    " I preferred this to the original. Just as exciting, but also more thoughtful, scary, and a little less preachy. Malcolm is still annoying though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 12/19/2013

    " I loved this book... and while it is vastly different from the movie (shocking) both are excellent and worth a read or watch in the own rights "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vicki | 12/17/2013

    " Although it got off to a bit of a slow start, the pace picked up and this turned out to be an excellent "adventure". A completely different story to the one presented in the movie version. As always, the book is better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brandon | 12/8/2013

    " I really enjoyed this one. It was easy to picture what was happening - perhaps because I've seen Jurassic Park, but I think even without having seen the movie I would have been able to visualize what was happening. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 12/7/2013

    " Don't shoot me, but what I love most about this and Jurassic Park is the chaos theory stuff. =) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kenric | 11/8/2013

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

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dylan | 8/18/2013

    " Crichton is a master at discribing smalles. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 7/4/2013

    " Well written but plot was too similar to original "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elise | 7/1/2013

    " Not as good as the first book but defiantly better than the movie! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erica | 3/18/2013

    " Didn't even pick up where Jurassic Park really left off, could barely make my way through it! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Telly | 11/22/2012

    " It was not as good as the first one, but it was okay. It was pure entertainment and lacked the depth of the first. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Spencer | 11/20/2012

    " I didn't know it was possible, but this book actually made me jump. Pretty much my favorite book by pretty much my favorite author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jesse | 8/7/2012

    " Good, but not at the same level as J-Park. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 AE | 6/30/2012

    " Great science, average prose. The story felt forced, like it was written only because Jurassic Park was so popular and the publisher wanted a follow up. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ashley | 6/2/2012

    " Jurassic Park was better by far. By far. But this one was alright. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth | 3/10/2012

    " Much better then the movie and I loved the movies! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susanne | 12/12/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaethe | 10/16/2011

    " A continuation of "Jurassic Park." Fast read, interesting story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maria | 9/9/2011

    " It started out puzzling and capturing, a great book. Throughout the chapters it became even more puzzling and amazing and exciting until you reach this large climax that just goes&goes&goes until about the last page. Overall, it was well written and enjoyable, but very anticlimactic. "

  • 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 jeff | 5/10/2011
