While this was no Jurassic Park, I certainly enjoyed this much more than Congo, Prey and definitely a lot more than that horrible State of Fear.
Time travel, medieval settings, modern wussies getting some culture shock, kickass fighting, it all came together to entertain me.
Now I want to watch the movie, even though that was a real bastardization of this novel…
The Lost World
Jurassic Park #2
the novel sequel to Jurassic Park. Another island, Site B, is discovered by a scientist friend of Ian Malcom [who doesn’t die, it turns out] and he finances an expedition. Malcom along with 3 engineers/designers and 2 stowaway kids go to the island. Everything goes wrong, as Malcom predicts and dinosaurs eat people.
This was a rehash, and not a very good one. I can see why the movie added lots of people [to get eaten!]. Jurassic Park was cool, this was tired.
written in the early 80’s, about the “greatness of computers” and a lost city in Congo. A new type of gorilla and blue diamonds. Gorillas trained to kill humans. Slower than Jurassic Park, but not nearly so as Andromeda Strain. I’d like to see the movie now.
well thot out, profanity
