#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From the author of Timeline, Sphere, and Congo comes the sequel to the smash-hit Jurassic Park, a thriller that’s been millions of years in the making.
“Fast and gripping.”—The Washington Post Book World
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, and the island indefinitely closed to the public.
There are rumors that something has survived. . . .
“Harrowing thrills . . . fast-paced and engaging.”—People
“A very scary read.”—Entertainment Weekly
“Action-packed.”—New York Daily News
“An edge-of-the-seat tale.”—St. Petersburg Times


  • Better Than #1

    By LaundryMatt77
    ‘Jurassic Park’ was no doubt amazing, but ‘The Lost World’ steps up Crichton’s dinosaur world with more action, a darker tone, more of his idiosyncratically compelling characters, and an intriguing new story that forces the reader to want to find out what happens next and how the story resolves. I recommend it for anyone ( even those who don’t read much ) that love fascinating and exciting stories, and of course for anyone who loves Michael Crichton, or loved ‘Jurassic Park’. Way better than the movie.

    If you just read Jurassic Park, you owe it to yourself to read The Lost World as well. It's an apt companion to its predecessor, and is head and shoulders above the movie version. The weakest part of the book is the incredibly incredible storyline. Crichton recycles some thematic elements almost like a crutch, I mean it's pretty noticeable. All that aside though, it's a good book. Definitely keeps you on the edge of your seat. I'm happy he wrote this sequel to JP and glad I decided to pick it up, even 20 years after its publishing. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.
  • Not as good as the first but still entertaining

    By RangerFan4life
    After the reading the epic novel "Jurassic Park" the lost world has a great follow up story which does explain some missing information which had not been explained the first time around. Was very pleased in how this novel started and ended but I do feel the first one was better

  • The Lost World

    This is an excellent book. The Lost World is a non stop thriller and action packed. It also makes you thinks how dinosaurs have been perceived as viscous lizards. I do believe that they were highly intelligent creatures. You can not go wrong reading this book and it I highly recommend it.
  • Fantastic!

    Just finished reading this book. I must say, the film is nothing like the book. I wish the film would have been more like the book. Such a fantastic and intense book.
