An excellent retelling of this classic Conan Doyle Adventure. True to the original in plot, character, themes and style, this is an excellent introduction to Arthur Conan Doyle's timeless story.

'Dinosaurs are most certainly not extinct. I have seen them.'

An incredible claim by the eccentric Professor Challenger leads to an expedition deep into the Amazon, where an unlikely group of men find themselves on a journey into unknown dangers. Will they have the skills, strength, intelligence and good fortune to survive?

Do dinosaurs really exist on the inaccessible plateau? How did a human skeleton become impaled on a bamboo spike? Can humans survive in a land of such primitive powers?

If journalist Edward Malone ever returns home to write his newspaper report, will it be to declare Challenger a madman or a genius?

    " Very good, tho' not my favorite of his writing "

    " I considered giveing this one four out of five;afterall,it wasn't perfect. The Lost World is essentially the first hand account of a young journalist in very early early twentieth century England who goes on an expedition with a small group of eccentrics into the Amazon to investigate a professor's claims (he being part of the posse)that he (the professer) discovered prehistoric life in that region. It turns out the acadamien is no bullshitter,obviously. This leads to some fascinateing adventures. Doyle's narratater isn' impeccable; he makes unusually liberal use of terms like 'half-breed', and there are similar examples as well. (By this I don't mean political incorrectness) Nonethelss, the prose was very capeable. Structal elements such as characteriazation and plot were extremely well done. (Both of theese are characteristic in the writeings of Doyle.) The people in this story are some of the most colorfull you'll ever read of, and The Lost World delivers some of the finest pulp entertainment that was ever penned down. Hence I realized that by the standards of pulp literartuere, The Lost World does deserve five out of five stars. I'd by all means recomend for people with the taste in the way of wild adventures tales and the likw. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Francisca | 7/23/2013

    " It was an enjoyable read. It was in the same line as "King Solomon's Mines". The descriptions and pacing of story was great. It's one of those classic reads. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leisel | 1/28/2013

    " I couldn't believe how captivating and scary this story was. Having grown up with the scientific idea of dinosaurs and the playful children's story dinosaurs, this was like being in Jurassic park. I was scared silly. "

    " Very enjoyable adventure and quite humorous. Obviously dated in some respects, particularly it's attitudes towards colour and race, but more modern in some others. Well thought out story, for its time, despite its fantastical premise. Very readable. "

    " I can't believe those people kill all the ape-people! It was like, invading! And then they brought baby pterodacyl from its place, what if the baby dies? It makes me sad. "

About the Author
Author Arthur Conan Doyle

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930) was born of Irish parentage in Scotland. He studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh, but he also had a passion for storytelling. His first book introduced that prototype of the modern detective in fiction, Sherlock Holmes. Despite the immense popularity Holmes gained throughout the world, Doyle was not overly fond of the character and preferred to write other stories. Eventually popular demand won out and he continued to satisfy readers with the adventures of the legendary sleuth. He also wrote historical romances and made two essays into pseudoscientific fantasy: The Lost World and The Poison Belt.
