Challenger leads a 4-man scientific expedition to an isolated South American region where, according to legend, dinosaurs and other Jurassic Era life forms still flourish. The intrepid scientists, eager to make historic discoveries, find themselves face to face with their own ancestors, threatening their pilgrimage and their lives. Written almost a century before Jurassic Park, Doyle's classic tale builds its suspense to a stunning climax, as we learn whether Challenger and his colleagues will make it out of The Lost World alive, and be able to reveal its secrets to the rest of the world.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Arwen | 2/7/2014

    " An exciting tale of adventure among dinosaurs in the Amazon. I enjoyed this book despite the lack of decent female characters. I can see why so many people have tried to update it for modern times in different formats. These days a book like this would be set in space, taking the word "World" from the title literally. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dervishi | 1/23/2014

    " This was the book that got me into English classics. If the author hadn't written Sherlock Holmes, the characters in this novel would be just as well known. Great characters, wonderful writing style, interesting storyline. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cooper Renner | 1/19/2014

    " I first read this story in high school and quite enjoyed it. It's still a good story, not as cerebral and measured as Sherlock Holmes, nor as intellectually appealing, but it opens an interesting window into the thought of the time, especially as regards preservation and interference in 'scientifically delicate' sites. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liisa | 1/16/2014

    " Well paced, kind of interesting reading about Arthur Conan Doyle's ideas of dinosaurs before people had studied the subject much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Krista McCracken | 12/27/2013

    " Classic Doyle writing style, with the first person and letter based narration. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Miranda | 12/27/2013

    " Very imaginative and detailed. Definitely a classic. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jess | 12/22/2013

    " I just couldn't really get into this book. I'm sure it's good, but I just can't get swept up in it. "

    " I don't think I have laughed so much in a book for a long time. I almost fell off the couch. Great adventure with great comic relief. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tricia | 11/26/2013

    " The fantasy was alive in my mind while reading. This book pulled me in, I loved it. "

    " Good adventure story inspired by the real life adventures of Fawcette and the lost city of Z "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 2/5/2013

    " Really quite interesting, especially when read today thinking about the age of scientific exploration in which time the book was written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rony | 10/14/2012

    " A classic. A must read, from which more modern novels pick up their ideas. And written in 1912. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy Boone | 7/15/2012

    " Great read. Loved the character development as well as the storyline. The language was definitely time period but it was an easy read. Would recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure. "

  • 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.
