I find a lot of people discuss the "resurrection" of Ian Malcolm in their reviews, and I'd like to throw in my two cents. It's true, Malcolm is mentioned as dead at the end of Jurassic Park. To be exact, Muldoon is telling Grant what's happened to everyone else as they're flying away in the helic...

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 sequel to his original novel (which the first movie was based on) which the...

WOW, this was disappointing.
I remembered going into this book that I had enjoyed the film version of the original Jurrasic Park far more than the book -- a rather unusual situation for me. I had a slight feeling of apprehension, but I ignored it. Even if I hadn't, though, it wouldn't have prepare...

The Lost World is not a very good book. The story is a slog to start and the characters are very weak. So weak that if any of them had actually been eaten by the constantly hungry dinosaurs I would've been like: shrug.
As the story progressed and I waited impatiently to find out: would they actua...

Michael Crichton always gives good science and when you add in dinosaurs, it should be great.
But it's not. It's a slow burner, no action for the first 200 pages, just lots of science. However, I like the way he educates the reader and tries to add a story in there. For instance, I now know why h...

This might turn out to be one of my favorite books of all time. I feel like there was so much to love. I don’t care if he was just cashing in on the success of the Jurassic Park movie. I’m not even mad that Malcolm’s death was retconned. What I’m mad about, is that Hollywood took a beautiful book...

I have to say that I do enjoy the writing style of Michael Crichton and although he has had his share of varying popularity I always feel I can trust his writing to deliver (even if to some that feels safe and uninspiring)
Anyway I digress - this was the second of his Jurassic Park novels and aga...

Trigger warnings: violence, gore, near drowning, seriously you guys, there's so much gore.
On reread, I'm bumping this up to 4.25 stars. It's ten bazillion times better than the truly terrible movie of the same name. I love the two kids in the story - they're smart and brave and save the...

What I learned from The Lost World: The only people worthy of surviving in Crichton's world are geniuses. Everyone else is destined to be fodder/feed for terrorizing thunder lizards.
The Lost World suffers from two things: First off, if you've ever read Jurassic Park, then you know that TLW's prot...

Not even close to as amazing as the first book, but this still has some great dino moments and absolutely fascinating ideas.
WARNING: This review contains unhidden spoilers for Jurassic Park.
The sequel is a little slow to get into. It's been six years since the events of the first book, but it's a...
