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. But there are rumours that something survived. And when a team go to investigate, they are determined not to give it a chance to escape. Michael Cricton takes the terrifying events of Jurassic Park even further in this unstoppably readable adventure sequel, told by a master storyteller.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tim | 2/15/2014

    " 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 Ruston | 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 Dos | 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 Earley | 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 Lofgren | 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 Chick | 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 Pennell | 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 Beyer | 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 F | 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 Skinner | 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 Poole | 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 McGaha | 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 (cnthrdlywt2bwz) | 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 Candlish | 3/10/2012

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vickie Wolfe | 3/4/2012

    " Doesn't compare to Jurassic Park. Has sequel-itis. "

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

    " The book was SOOOOO much better then the movie. I look at birds differently to this day b/c of one of the first chapters. LOL "

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

    " Dinos! Danger, action, adventure! More dinos! More money! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dolly | 10/14/2011

    " 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 Diane | 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

    " good stuff on paleontological theory wrapped in a cheesy plot "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caitlin | 5/2/2011

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jess | 5/1/2011

    " Preferred the first one, but this was still good. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alice | 4/30/2011

    " A strange book about dinosaurs recreated on an island in Costa Rica. Not of of the best Chrichton's I've read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adriana | 4/29/2011
