It is now six years since the secret disaster at Jurassic Park, six years since the extraordinary dream of science and imagination came to a crashing end--the dinosaurs destroyed, the park dismantled, the island indefinitely closed to the public.

While I liked this book, I wasn't in awe of it like I was with Jurassic Park. The original dinosaur concepts presented in the first book were continued and expanded upon. I felt as though this book was unnecessary, especially since half of the book explained many key points of the original in a effort to make this book capable of being a book that could stand on its own. It was longer than it needed to be considering the amount of wholly new material.
