A man of many voices
If I were to choose the best reader I've listened to, as a seasoned audiobook fan, it would have to be Anthony Heald, And it would be his performance reading The Lost World that convinced me of this. And yes, I said performance, because that is indeed what it is. The obvious commitment and energy that he put into this project is commendable. His voices are superb, so much so that I felt I was right there with them on that island. I am also an avid Crichton reader, and enjoyed reading The Lost World, but it wasn't until listening to Heald that it became a favorite. All in all, this is the tape that made me fall in love with audiobooks, and I would suggest it to anyone and everyone interested in hearing great audiobook talent.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
If you saw the movie and thought it sucked, then you might like this book. It's totally different and and Malcolm doesn't even have an annoying kid in it "that kills Raptors with gymnastics"...like the movie!
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Not really, but the book is better than the movie and smarter.
Did Anthony Heald do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
Yes, but his Levine voice is kind of fruity and annoying.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Neither, but it made me wish the Spielberg version followed the book more closely. The film just has many people with guns getting ripped to pieces and not one gun killing a dinosaur. This book has better pacing and is smarter, even if it's still not as good as the first.
