However, there are rumours that something has survived on another island. Could the nightmare be beginning again? "Penguin Readers" is a series of simplified novels, film novelizations and original titles that introduce students at all levels to the pleasures of reading in English. Originally designed for teaching English as a foreign language, the series' combination of high interest level and low reading age makes it suitable for both English-speaking teenagers with limited reading skills and students of English as a second language. Many titles in the series also provide access to the pre-20th century literature strands of the National Curriculum English Orders. "Penguin Readers" are graded at seven levels of difficulty, from "Easystarts" with a 200-word vocabulary, to Level 6 (Advanced) with a 3000-word vocabulary. In addition, titles fall into one of three sub-categories: "Contemporary", "Classics" or "Originals". At the end of each book there is a section of enjoyable exercises focusing on vocabulary building, comprehension, discussion and writing. Some titles in the series are available with an accompanying audio cassette, or in a book and cassette pack. Additionally, selected titles have free accompanying "Penguin Readers Factsheets" which provide stimulating exercise material for students, as well as suggestions for teachers on how to exploit the Readers in class.Hide synopsis

"The Lost World" is nowhere near as wonderful as "Jurassic Park." Though mentioned in the book several beloved characters from the first story were not involved with this new story. Instead Malcolm, the mathematician, is the lead. Dr Alan Grant might as well be forgotten.
The book also seems more like a sequel to the movie rather than the book. Malcolm presumed dead from the first book is brought back as the lead in the second. Malcolm was not that great of a character, but he had been very popular in the movie. He was never a strong enough character to carry his own story.
The action is well done. There are some slow scenes. Luckily there are less science chapters in this book, focusing more on the adventure.
