My 11 year old son has read the entire collection. A bit graphic but it gets him asking amazing questions, researching and absolutely begging for the next novel. We do NOT allow them to watch any movie that was a book first until they have finished the book.
Beautiful book! I am a huge Jurassic Park movie fan and, also being a big reader, I had to have the book. So, I chose this lovely leather bound edition. You can't go wrong! Great story, lovely cover art, and a good quality book that will last years to come.
I liked the premise of the story, but it was not as well done as it could've been. I mean, two kids sneak off to go on a scientific expedition and end up on an island with dinosaurs? Parents are clueless? Really?? And too much philosophizing by Ian Malcolm. Harding was the star!
I really enjoyed this book. We all remember Doyle for "Sherlock," but this and "The White Company" are also wonderful reads. In this one, Doyle exposes a robust and volatile character through the medium of another more mild character, somewhat in the fashion of Sherlock through the eyes of Watson. They embark on an adventure that boggles the imagination, as long as you project yourself back to the understanding they had in that time period (think mostly pre-flight era.) Highly recommended to anyone that loves adventure, and Doyle.
With an outdated and somewhat pedantic style the reader has to persevere to get to what is actually a good, imaginative and thoughtful storyline. The author has a few pokes at Edwardian morality and pomposity, in a somewhat tongue in cheek fashion. Despite the popular misconception of a dinosaur theme, it is human interactions, race and struggle that form the subtext.
I have to admit, when I first read the lost world I didn't like it. I initially found the book racist, sexist and quite repetitive . But after I did a little bit of research and realized that the book was written in a time where black people and women didn't have any freedoms. And it was also written in a Serial fashion because each chapter of the book appeared weekly in the newspaper when it was published. This is the explanation for the repetitiveness. After that I realized how well the book was written for its time
The Lost World was both my first foray into reading Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and my first experience reading a full-length e-book. First of all, my impressions of the electronic format for reading have been significantly improved by this experience. Although I still would prefer to read with a book in hand, I can appreciate the portability and convenience of this medium. I do not own an actual e-reader, so when I one day do own one, I may have to increase my current liking of the electronic format, but suffice it to say for the time being that I did not hate this format and using the Kindle for PC format provided by I enjoyed the fact that I could access my "book" at the place that I had left off from any of my computers whether at home, work or opinions of the novel itself could not be more glowing. For such a short novel, I am amazed that I found such richness in the characters, storyline, prose, action and content as I was exposed to in The Lost World. Doyle has done an amazing job of creating unique, interesting and fully fleshed out characters. The story contains plenty of excitement and adventure and most of his scientific reasoning is plausible especially considering the time in which the novel was written.I had always had it in mind that I needed to read the Sherlock Holmes stories of Doyle but just hadn't gotten around to it yet. Now I know that I must read more of his works, not only the Holmes stories but now the Challenger series as well. Professor Challenger is one of the most outlandish, boisterous and absolutely wonderful characters in literature and I am a bit surprised that I really hadn't heard too much about the character before reading this besides in another GoodReads members' review that prompted me to read this in the first place.Overall, a fun well-written novel that transcends it's age and really doesn't feel terrible dated that I thoroughly enjoyed! (And yes, I will be reading more books in e-book format as well.)
Good game great idea just a bit laggy and it would be better if you get to choose a storyline like...say your a princess or prince or the owner of the daycare was evil or something...and the storyline you choose gets built in like a castle a mean woman or a small village but if you do this it would make it SOOOO much better but except that the games great
I was a huge fan of the original 3 movies, they were out when I was younger, and I grew up loving dinosaurs because of them. This movie was awesome, and I think it can stand as a testimonial piece towards the capabilities that Christopher Pratt has. He nailed it. The graphics were awesome, the supporting cast did great and the t rex saved the child in me. 10\5 stars, four thumbs up, and I hope that star wars episode VII doesn't disappoint,
I've never been a fan of this series. The only impressive thing of the original was the graphics that were, at the time, breathtaking. But we all know great graphics alone can't save a film. I watched this new effort just to see how far CGI has come in the time since the original and I can safely say, not very far. From the opening scene with the terrible looking and poorly animated bird, it's obvious that CGI has reached its limits in recreating realistic content. As for the film. The dreadful script and annoying characters helped me lose any interest after about 15 mins. Ok for the age range it's aimed at I suppose, but there are far better films out there worthy of your money.
Untamable Devil. One thing that would be 100% guaranteed prior to the release of Jurassic World, is that whatever the quality, or lack of, the notices would be mixed. Thus the reactions would be akin to those that Indiana Jones 4 received, charges of ruining childhoods and franchises etc. Jurassic World does exactly what is expected of it, it's a popcorn blockbuster that plays out as mindless fun, complete with outstanding effects, monster mayhem and moments of dumbness. In fact it's very much a safe sequel, reverting to the original formula without the classy edges of Spielberg's deft touch. There's a likable cast fronting up the pic, with Chris Pratt as the hero carrying some olde adventure chops about him, and Bryce Dallas Howard (her natural beauty sparkling on Blu-ray) a fun femme side-kick. The writers introduce a couple of new mighty monsters to the series, hell of beasties for sure, while the photography, stunt work and musical score all impress greatly. The Velociraptor plot line is crummy and daft, almost as daft as Bryce's high heels character arc, and the familiarity factor does grate a little at times, but it's a rollicking good time not to be taken remotely seriously like it's some sort of series disgrace. 7/10
All in all this movie brought back the franchise that started out and captured the worlds attention. From the T-Rex chasing them down the road in there jeep to the velociraptors stalking them and picking them off one by one. Jurassic World brought the franchise back to the state of reality. (If dinosaurs were real, this would be the set up for a park and containment of dinosaurs). Chris Pratt did a great job on not only playing his part but looking it as well. Mis. Howard did ok. It seemed like she stumbled through most of her scenes and didn't bring key emotional expressions or reactions to the scene moments. But with her OCD and control issues played up against Mr. Pratt it brought the key relationship to tie the movie together. This is a must see movie!
If you somehow missed this movie and have never seen it then watch it immediately. As a young boy of 9 on my way to the cinema I wasn't at all prepared for the on-screen awesomeness I was about to witness, one of the defining movies of my childhood and of the modern age. With special effects that simply blew any and all previous dino movies out of the water, compelling story and the odd comic moment such as the Mr Arnolds arm it really did make that evening something I will remember forever. So successful it went on to spawn 3 sequels, the second was enjoyable, the third not so much. The newest Chris Pratt one, I'll leave that for you but its worth a watch, especially if you want to wash the taste of the 3rd one out of your mouth. It gave me nightmares for weeks, really really wonderful nightmares.
I love crafts and learning new takes on some old favorites. This is a must have for moms with young children. I especially liked the science crafts for children. Most of the crafts had web sites to view what the finished product should look like. That being said there were some web sites that were no longer available. That prevented me from giving a 5 star rating.
There are a ton of crafting ideas and projects in this book, which is exactly what I was looking for with the holiday season approaching. While there was the extra step with the images, I found that that I didn't mind this at all because then I could save many of the images on a saved folder on my computer. That being said, as with many of White Lemon's other "how-to's," I've found the directions to be easy to follow in each project and the most of the projects to be both original and fun to tackle. Would definitely recommend this one.
I got myself a copy of this book as I was feeling a little arty-crafty and wanted to put a bunch of leftover art supplies to use.I ended up making a bunch of stuff like mason jar candles (I did get yelled at for using my sister's cocktail mason jar), soda bottle pins and this cute little broach for my daughter. I did add a little glitter to most of the stuff I made coz my daughter is in that stage where she wants glitter in absolutely y buy a copy of this book if you're okay with the idea of filling your place with a whole lot of cool home made goodies.
Great book. Am going to start the new year out right, by making crafts thru out the year.
Not all of the craft ideas are for everybody,but I almost guarantee that you will find at least a few that you will have fun with,even if you don't have kiddos. I imagine this would be a blast with young children in the house! I've already implemented one of the craft ideas as a Halloween gift for my coworkers,who all loved it
