The lost world [electronic resource]. Michael Crichton.

Crichton, Michael. (Author). Guidall, George. (Added Author).

Summary:

Author of numerous best-sellers and the creator of television's ER, Michael Crichton has won popular and critical acclaim for his action-packed, edge-of-your-seat thrillers. Topping the New York Times bestseller list, The Lost World revisits the Central American site of the Jurassic Park fiasco. It has been six years since the secret scientific experiments at Jurassic Park went awry, and the dinosaurs had to be destroyed. Although the park was completely dismantled and barricaded from the public, there are rumors that something has survived. To scientists, these rumors bring hope of further study, but to greedy and unscrupulous exploiters, these rumors could mean fame and fortune. George Guidall's expert narration gradually builds the harrowing suspense, then unexpectedly unleashes it upon delighted thriller fans. It's no wonder that the film version of this absorbing novel has become a box office hit.

Author Notes

The Lost World

John Michael Crichton, known as Michael Crichton, was born on October 28, 1942 in Chicago, Illinois. He wrote novels while attending Harvard University and Harvard Medical School to help pay the tuition. One of these, The Andromeda Strain, which was published in 1969, became a bestseller. After graduating summa cum laude, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the Salk Institute in California before becoming a full-time writer and film director. His carefully researched novels included Eaters of the Dead, The Terminal Man, The Great Train Robbery, Congo, Sphere, Jurassic Park, Rising Sun, Disclosure, The Lost World, Airframe, and Micro. He also wrote non-fiction works including Five Patients: The Hospital Explained, Jasper Johns, and Travels. In the late 1960s, he also wrote under the pen names Jeffrey Hudson and John Lange. He has received several awards including Writer of the Year in 1970 from the Association of American Medical Writers and two Edgar Awards in 1968 and in 1979. Many of his novels have been made into highly successful films, six of which he directed. He was also the creator and executive producer of the Emmy Award-winning television series ER. In addition to his writing and directorial success, his expertise in information science enabled him to run a software company and develop a computer game. He died of cancer on November 4, 2008 at the age of 66. (Bowker Author Biography)
