    " I mourn the fact that I was born after the age of romance, when such adventures beckoned. Well done, sir! "

    " Okay, so it's a rousing tale of adventure, with characters slightly more sympathetic than some of Jules Verne's. And Conan Doyle is very dear to me. Apart from this, and rollicking explorer-of-the-wilds manliness aside, this book made me giggle. I don't know that the Modern Library Classics version shares exact text with my copy (a slightly quirky 1912 edition), but Doyle uses names and words that at the time were innocuous, and would now send the politic crowd into cardiac arrest. In light of its 1912 publication, it's understandable, but reading about the "half-breed" characters Gomez and Manuel, the "Mojo Indians" (named Mojo, Jose and Fernando), and their "negro" servant Zambo may give you paroxysms of your own. Mildly offensive hilarity abounds. Surprisingly, the description of the creatures they find in Maple White Land aren't TOO unbearable to the contemporary reader; just don't try too hard to equate them to... y'know, actual science. Also, there is a chapter titled "I Was the Flail of the Lord," which would be wonderful even if it didn't refer to that apogee of cool, Lord John Roxton. "

    " What a fun read! It started out a little slow, but that may have been my own impatience for the adventure to begin. I loved each and every character on the expedition! There was action, adventure, heroism....I can't wait until my tots are old enough to read this! What a fun page-turner!! "

    " There is no doubt that Doyle is a brilliant writer...but I think I will prefer his Sherlock Holmes novels better. The book did have the atmosphere of a gentleman's camping trip in which the egos of all the characters(apart from main character) are a bit unbearable.... "

    " this is the best adventures book as the same genre as jules verne books, but this is different in the manner unique to conan doyle, he is person who ignited my reading habit by his charecter sherlock holmes and his detective methods. "

    " read again prior to reading to children. acutally was quite good, little boys will def. like it "

    " Such a fun and adventurous book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ivana | 12/13/2012

    " I seriously wonder why I haven't read this sooner :D It is a great adventure book, I had lots of fun reading it and I fell in love with the character of prof. Challenger ^^ "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Najaryan Tatevik | 9/4/2012

    " Was a little scary (read it when I was 14 or 15). "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linn | 8/21/2012

    " Fun read, even without Sherlock Holmes. Old attitudes and language about race make it a bit uncomfortable. Professor Challenger is a hoot, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 5/25/2012

    " I was a little disappointed. I thought there would be more about their adventures in the Lost World. That definitely was the most exciting and interesting part--yet the shortest part of the tale. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel Shirley | 4/26/2012

    " This book is a entertaining mix of prehistoric adventure and old school English character. I apparently have a soft spot for that period in England, because I couldn't get enough of these characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yeva | 7/22/2011

    " This story was great! I found this exciting and at times really amusing. The ending was hilarious; I laughed so hard I was gasping. The language was complex and the characters were nicely developed. This story should rivel any modern tale. I highly recommend this story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emma Britnell | 6/30/2011

    " I actually found this quite disappointing. After watching a tv adaptation that I really enjoyed, I decided to read the book but just couldn't quite get into it. I did finish it but found it a bit of a let down to be honest. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul Brewer | 6/15/2011

    " Great read almost a century before Jurassic Park. "

    " Mine is a leather bound issue, part of a collection Dalmatian Press released in 2004. "

    " Found this an engaging book to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sean Fisher | 4/13/2011

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 3/22/2011

    " 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. "

    " Much better than the TV show for sure. ;) "

About the Author

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.
