With the highest grossing film in cinema history, "Jurassic Park" invented the word "dinomania" which swept the country in 1993. Now, the events prefaced in the epilogue to that novel are explored in this sequel.

Written in the wake of Jurassic Park's phenomenal box-office success, The Lost World seems as much a guidebook for Hollywood types hard at work on the franchise's followup as it is a legitimate sci-fi thriller. Which begs the inevitable questions: Is the plot a rehash of the first book? Sure it is, with the action unfolding on yet another secluded island, the mysterious "Site B." Is the cast of characters basically the same? Absolutely, from a freshly minted pair of cute, compu-savvy kids right down to the neatly exhumed chaos theorist Ian Malcolm (who was presumed dead at the close of JP). But is it fun to read? You betcha. Hollywood (and Michael Crichton) keeps telling us the same old stories for a very good reason: we like them. And the pulp SF formula Crichton has mastered with Jurassic Park and The Lost World is no exception. --Paul HughesFrom the Inside Flap:

The sequel to Michael Crichton's bestselling Jurassic Park.
It is now six years since the secret disaster at Jurassic Park: six years since that extraordinary dream of science and imagination came to a crashing end - the dinosaurs destroyed, the part dismantled, the island indefinitely closed to the public.
There are rumors that something has survived.
Michael Crichton is at it again. The Lost World continues the horrifying and thrilling tale begun in Jurassic Park.
Airframe, Jurassic Park, Disclosure, Eaters of the Dead, Rising Sun, Sphere, Congo, The Andromeda Strain, The Great Train Robbery, and The Terminal Man, by Michael Crichton are all available from Random House AudioBooks.
