5.0 out of 5 stars A high-adventure, scientific thriller July 14 2006
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was really a very talented writer, and he had many tales to tell that did not involve the famous Sherlock Holmes. The Lost World is perhaps the best known of his noncanonical stories. He describes a lush, mysterious plateau in the remote Amazonian regions of South America in which creatures thought to have died out eons ago still stalk the earth. Professor Challenger, while possessing some of the confidence and intellect of a Holmes, could not be more different in his passions and boisterous, conceited behavior; it is his contention that a "lost world" does exist. Recruiting a disbelieving zoologist, a famed adventurer, and a fresh, young newspaper man to go with him, the group sets out for the inaccessible reaches of the jungle and manages, after some great effort, to reach the isolated plateau. By an act of treachery by an Indian bearing a grudge against the famed Lord Roxton, their portal of entry is destroyed, leaving them trapped in the mysterious new land they dub Maple White Land after an American who earlier discovered the place but died soon thereafter (but not before encountering Professor Challenger in the Amazon and revealing to him its existence and location). They build a camp and begin investigating the area, quickly discovering unknown forms of plant life and animal life, including dinosaurs and pterodactyls. As if the monstrous reptilian beasts aren't hazard enough for them, they soon find themselves besieged by a vicious race of ape-men, whom they eventually take on in alliance with a separate race of Indians. The newspaperman narrates events in a series of postings he manages to get sent back to London, describing the creatures and their habits. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars Series of essays upsets flow of story Aug. 15 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I am torn. While the book was exciting in spots, there were not enough spots to keep the book from plodding. I know that in the late 1990s and early 2000s dinosaurs were the bee's knees for every kid and kid-at-heart. The book just doesn't "play" now. I seriously doubt it would even be published in this form. Not for it's subject matter, but for the zoological and paleontological lectures through out the book. It seemed almost unbelievable that action stops over and over again while Harding, Malcolm, Thorne, or Levine give a short essay about predation, evolution or theories. And sometimes NOT short essays about same. At times I much more enjoyed the banter from the bad guys. Even I could see where they went badly wrong. The children seemed to be there simply so they could ask questions which led to the next lecture. I agree that this book was simply economically expedient following the success of the Jurassic Park movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alien Voices Rule! Oct. 5 2002
Format:Audio Cassette
I highly recommend Alien Voices "The Lost World"! I already have several Alien Voices recordings and I've enjoyed listening to every one of them. I am a big Star Trek fan and it's fun to listen to Trek actors doing something completely different from what they did on their respective shows. Also, the sound effects are highly believable and the actors bring Challenger and the other characters to life as the story unfolds. If you like Sci-Fi, but don't have time to read, I would recommend any of the Alien Voices stories on CD audio or cassette, because they make for great listening anytime!
