The Lost World Novel

The Lost World is a techno-thriller novel by Michael Crichton, published in 1995 by Ballantine Books. A paperback edition (ISBN 0-345-40288-X) was issued in New York in 1996. It is a sequel to his earlier novel Jurassic Park.
Like Arthur Conan Doyle's novel of the same name, Crichton's novel concerns an expedition to an isolated Central American location where dinosaurs roam - though in this case, the dinosaurs were recreated by genetic engineering, rather than surviving from antiquity.

Plot Summary

The eccentric mathematician Ian Malcolm and the egocentric paleontologist Richard Levine head to Isla Sorna to investigate extinction theories in the "Lost World" left by InGen's cloning program. They are joined by material engineer Jack 'Doc' Thorne, his chief mechanic Eddie Carr, field biologist Sarah Harding, and two stowaway kids: R.B. "Arby" Benton and Kelly Curtis. Also on the island is Biosyn geneticist and the book's antagonist Lewis Dodgson and his two henchmen, Howard King and George Baselton.
As with the first book, the characters have to fend off attacks from T. rexes and Velociraptors, as well as carnotaurs, which are described as having chameleon like physical traits. Between the action scenes Malcolm and Levine talk about various evolutionary and extinction theories, as well as the nature of modern science and the homogenizing and destructive nature of humanity. The book also discusses the role of prions in brain diseases, which has been at the root of concerns over Mad Cow Disease.
