    " I'm not sure I caught the point of this book - the ending made Prof. Challenger's experiment absolutely unnecessary. That's all I'm saying or else I'd have spoilers. :) "

    " This isn't so bad, but it isn't another Lost World, and it does stretch my credulity at times. "

    " Despite the low rating I gave, I really enjoy reading books like this. Doyle loves characters like Holmes and Challenger, incredibly smart and insightful and always eccentric, and I gravitate to them. I like the ethereal premise of the disaster, but would have liked more explication and exploration during the 28 hours they were alone in the world. I mean, imagine the opportunity of being one of just a handful of humans in the entire country, if not the world! So much potential here, just not fully fleshed out. "

    " A very interesting book about the end of the world. Very reflective and somber. Not the catastrophic end, not violent, but an end, in which the characters are forced to be very intropective. Enjoyed very much "
