Years ago Jurassic Park was destroyed, along with all of its animals that lived on the island. So why now are strange animals that can only be dinosaurs washing up on beaches? Why is the Costa Rican government so intent on hiding these carcasses and removing all traces of their existence? Richard Levine is determined to find out and he is intent on dragging an indifferent Ian Malcolm into the mess. As it turns out there was a “Site B” that involved dinosaurs. What it’s function was and where it is located is another matter. Soon it is a race against the clock as underhanded individuals decide to stick their whole hand in the pie.
With the release of Jurassic World there is little doubt in my mind that there will be a resurgence of interest in the Jurassic Park books. For example moi. As a side note a lot of people are saying they didn’t like Jurassic World – their reasons for their dislike are never given. But I have also overheard the same people who say it wasn’t any good rave on and on about how much they loved the low-grade Fifty Shades of Grey. So, yeah. Anyway I liked it. I now have nightmares but, yes I liked it. The same goes for the book. As an adventure story it’s really good. However, there were quite a few statements that I didn’t agree with. And beware of the language. Can I just say I have NEVER EVER marked up a book. The very idea is horrifying. Well..my copy of The Lost World currently sports all sorts of blacked out words. Because of that it’s not a book to hand to children. Don’t hand it to them anyway! There are some rather grotesque details. I have always loved reading about dinosaurs – and still do – but this book has put the fear of the dino in me. Currently I am attempting to imagine what must go on in the minds of people like Michael Crichton. How do they come up with this stuff?! Really a thrilling tale.
