Hi guys, spoilers if you haven't read the books I suppose.
I currently rereading Jurassic Park and loving it (I haven't read it in like twelve years) and I was wondering what people thought of The Lost World. I never actually got around to reading it. One of my cousins, who also loved the first book, told me she hated it and that it was very inconsistent with the first one (Ian Malcolm being declared alive, for example). I also remember it not being very well received by critics and I think I remember in an interview Michael Crichton said he only wrote it because of the films. (Correct me if any of this is wrong.)
What do people here think? Is it worth reading or should I just skip it?
