Absolutely priceless Her relationship with Kelly was perfect and I adored her for it Kelly becomes a little Sarah Harding in her own rightWere there as many dinosaurs in this as in Jurassic Park? No Did I mind? No The characters and the story of their survival took front and center here and it was fantastic I sort of think of it like I think of Spielberg’s productiondirection strategy Less is A ripple in a puddle A thump in the distance The threat is always there but you can’t always see it It’s your imagination that makes the horror realThe action scenes were all edge of your seat thrill rides The classic trailer on the cliff scene was done much better in the book The presence of children on the island heightened the suspenseMy only word of warning if you liked the movie before you’ll probably be disappointed in it by the time you’re done reading The Lost World Read it anyway It’s worth it

ePub í The Lost World ô Michael Crichton

It is now six years since the secret disaster at Jurassic Park six years since the extraordinary The story goes that Steven Spielberg flush with the success of the first Jurassic Park movie itself an adaptation of a Michael Chrichton novel decided to try and repeat his success by commissioning the author to write a seuel to his original novel which the first movie was based on which they could then adapt into a movieWhether or not that's true I cannot say but I will say that do not base your initial judgement of this book or the prospect of reading it on the lacklustre utter turkey that the film turned out to beIn many respects the novel is everything the film should have been and wasn't Not only did Spielberg fiddle with a lot of the key elements of the story but completely remove some of the best parts of the whole storyI won't go into details as it'll only include spoilers but I've lost track of how many times I've read this book other than it being somewhere in the region of twenty or times It's THAT goodIf you're a fan of Michael Chricton dinosaurs or just rip roaring adrenaline fuelled rides you should give this book the read it clearly deservesForget the movie altogether witness what should have been

Michael Crichton ô The Lost World book

The Lost WorldSmantled the island indefinitely closed to the publicThere are rumors that something has survive 25 starsMe for the first 60% of the bookI’ve never really liked the second Jurassic Park movie I changed my mind There are worse things like the book the movie was adapted from I actually applaud the writers because fixing this mess took talent Guess it helped ignoring the entire book apart from two or three of the interesting dinosaur scenes Overall this was nice to read because Crichton’s writing flows even when Malcolm is in the middle of one of his chaos rants but man I was expecting something way better than thisFirst things first I don’t understand why the author went to the trouble of reviving Malcolm if his character wasn’t really needed During the book he never once mentions his previous trip to Jurassic Park and he behaves as though he has never been on the other island with Grant and Hammond He would have never never never gone to Isla Sorna to save Levine whom he doesn’t even like knowing that he would find the same dangers just to prove his stupid extinction theory He’s reckless and acts without thinking plus he keeps blabbering about his theories even when his life is in danger I was so confused when his group suddenly decides to go to the tyrannosaur nest to check I don’t even know what after a guy had just been eaten Then they bring the baby to the trailer and make him a cast for his broken leg and Malcolm says nothing? They managed to make it work in the movie but here that was way beyond stupidTo be honest this was a trend for all the characters involved In the end the dinosaur attacks were triggered by idiotic actions than anything else but I’m mad at Malcolm in particular because he freaking KNEW what would happen Is it too much to ask for character continuity and characters who use their brains? JeezOn the other hand I liked seeing a woman like Sarah take the lead in this kind of book written by a man in the 90s It’s refreshing and heartwarming Doc Thorne was also very sweet and caring and I’m glad he survived I wouldn’t want to be in his and Levine’s shoes though because now they have some explaining to do to the children’s parents lolSome of the dinosaur scenes were nice and brutal especially the ones with the tyrannosaurs but others were purely unrealistic I wish the raptors weren’t in this book at all Raptors that eat candy bars holding them in their forearms? Raptors that find the high hide by sniffing a candy bar wrap? Raptors that run away with keys? Dinosaurs that destroy a car to find their eggs inside closed metal briefcases after hours? I’m sorry but this is too much And there’s many scenes that made me roll my eyesThis book was one entire discussion about extinction chaos and other scientific stuff There was too little action even the conclusion was rushed so that the characters could tell everyone about their latest realizations The villains die the good guys survive That’s it I guess the good thing is that this book made me appreciate the movie in a way I didn’t think was possible after all these years
