Book Description
The Lost World: Jurassic Park Junior Novelisation captures all the thrills and chills of The Lost World story - with heart-stopping suspense, hair-raising action, and illustrated with colour photographs from the film. Something has survived...In 1993, an ambitious entrepreneur named John Hammond spoke four words which ushered in a new era of motion picture excitement and set worldwide boxoffice records..."Welcome to Jurassic Park". Now, a few years later, Hammond makes a startling confession to scientist Ian Malcolm: another island of dinosaurs exists...an island where dinosaurs have been living and breeding in the wild...the Lost World.

    Io ho il debole per i dinosauri.
    Forse ho esagerato con le stelline. Ma rimane un buon libro, non hai livelli di Jurassic Park, ma un buonissimo libro sui dinosauri.
    Attenzione però, la storia differisce in parte dal quella portata sul grande schermo e ancora una volta, il libro è meglio del film.

    Classico caso di: "E' meglio il libro del film".
    Il film prende ispirazione giusto da due o tre cose e poi...cose a caso per due ore.
    Dinosauri allo stato brado ed è subito occhi a forma di cuore. ...continue

    Niente da dire: Crichton non delude. Scritto bene e con le sue buone dosi di suspance. Pero' non riesco a non fare il paragone con il primo romanzo:pieno di teorie e di spiegazioni rimane il migliore. ...continue

    A style even drabber than usual, with words repeated in a same paragraph.. would make National Geographic magazine read like Joyce. Crichton’s most remarkable stylistic hallmark is still the computer printout inserted in the page, featuring in all his works since “Andromeda Strain”.
    A downhill plot, compelling to turn a page after the other: which is not necessarily a quality, whatever book covers affirm, because you risk forgetting them at the same speed; especially when action is so frantic.
    Dr. Sarah, Harding in name and deed, is endowed of incredible surviving skills, verging on the irrealistic.
    A slide from tragic to ridiculous is not avoided when a raptor, tired of mangling the weak handyman of the villain’s carcass, tastes a candy bar, finding it delicious.. or the tirade by Dr. Malcolm on instable systems, while he’s under morphine to allow Harding to clean a bone-deep wound?
    Not all details are fitting: if this is the island where Jurassic Park’s beasts were hatched, where are the pterodactyls?
    And how comes these dinosaurs don’t lack the vital aminoacid, they have been built with a genetic lack of? It was voiced that dinosaurs at large on the mainland made up for that by eating a farmed cereal, but where do they find it in this God-forsaken island?
    But the strength is in the ideas, expressed in successive configurations. Undoubtedly ideas are debated with acumen and knowledge; the trivial image of evolution we get at school (in Italian schools, at least) is shaken, to show how much we need to learn to understand how it actually works; the trite cliché of dinosaur extinction earns mystery and depth when set aside the other, even more destructive extinctions life on Earth has undergone, about which we know nil.
    I close the book regretting that Crichton could not write a third installment of the series: because after all we still know nothing of the dinosaurs that made it to the coast alive and kicking..

    L idea di far rivivere il jurassiko come un fantastico parco dei divertimenti non poteva che essere un vero e proprio disastro! Ma non si discute sulla formidabile e brillante e stravagante , non chè pericolosa idea di J. Hammond ! Ci è riuscito , in poche parole ha ricreato i Dinosauri ! Con annessi e connessi !
    Per fortuna ci sono persone che non hanno condiviso in pieno il sogno del miliardario .
    Per fortuna Ian aveva ragione !
    Estinti!
