Detailed item info
With a title that frankly pays homage to a major influence--Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who penned many a Sherlock Holmes adventure--LOST WORLD follows up on the wildly popular (and lucrative) JURASSIC PARK. The plot and characters might invoke some déjà vu, although now the dinos are on a different island. But why mess with success? Readers who enjoyed the JURASSIC oos and aws are sure to enjoy those of LOST WORLD as well.

From the best-selling author of Disclosure and The Andromeda Strain comes the action-packed sequel to Jurassic Park, in a story of science run amok. 2,000,000 first printing. Tour.
"It's basically a retelling of his tried-and-true 1990 best seller, 'Jurassic Park,' and more or less an outline for what will surely be the movie sequel."
New York Times - Michiko Kakutani (10/10/1995)
"Pell-mell action and hairbreadth escapes, plus periodic commentary on the uses and abuses of science: the admirable Crichton keeps the pot boiling throughout."
Kirkus Reviews (08/15/1995)
