Fwd: leucocephalic look at _LW_

Lost world "forgets" many things that either the book or movie JP had come up
with. I was not terribly thrilled with the book on either scientific ro
literary bases. Everyone will probably read the thing to get their own look
but it ain't worth it IMMHO.

IMPOSSIBLE!!!  Ian Malcom *died* in the book version of JP.  Granted, in the=
 movie version that he survived until the end, but surely a book sequel=
 would follow the book version, allowing the movie version to follow the=
 movie version (confusing no matter how one looks at it).
