    Personal Response # 1 After reading the first half of The Lost World I discovered I really enjoyed reading this novel. This surprised me because I was never interested in the movie version of this book. The characters were well developed having different view points and a wide variety of emotions. The characters showed many different motives for their actions, working towards sometimes conflicting goals. The author depicts a detailed setting in the present time period. The plot so far is excitin...

    The Lost World: Summary read Michael Crichton's The Lost World. In the following paragraphs, I will not only explain the book, but also give my critique of it.

The ellipsis in the titular quote refers to an important omission: "it [the blank space] had got filled since my boyhood with rivers and lakes and names. It had ceased to be a blank space of delightful mystery - a white patch for a boy to dream gloriously over." 1 Conrad's Marlow hi...

    The Lost World Private Interview with Dr. Ian Malcolm 1. Dr. Malcolm, what is it about dinosaurs that interests you Well, for me it's the primitive nature. The way they hunt, seek and kill. We have learned so much from that island about the way in which dinosaurs live together and how their behavior is so much different from what we had theorized. That is the one thing that this was so useful for. Studying ancient bones can only give you an idea on how they look and fight. Seeing them in realit...
