GOOD INCOME KEPT THE TWO INEXORABLYincome kept the two inexorably His historical novels found little success but he achieved with his science fiction adventures of which The Lost World was by far the most successful And rightly so This tale of a hidden world is full of action with many mysteries to ponder Just imagine the excitement of the readers of Strand Magazine as they waited for the next episode of the story to be published ust what creatures or predicaments would our heroes meet nextAs far as I know Conan Doyle never travelled up the He obtained his knowledge from other people s accounts but his descriptions of the ungle are excellent and help to build the tension before they even reach the site of the lost worldDespite the age of the book and the language of the time I found it easy to read Having the story written in the first person helped to maintain the tension and fearThe principle characters are those one would expect from an action story of that time the relatively innocent narrator the two irascible professors and everybody s favourite the all action Lord John Roxton sportsman world explorer British gentleman and all round good egg The sort of character that we have seen parodied countless timesI was expecting action and mysterious creatures but my surprise was Conan Doyle s humour In particular I found myself laughing out loud at the chapter describing the lecture at the start of the book To use the vernacular of the time the inaudible chairman was an absolute hoot For several reasons The Lost World could not be written today With the benefit of current knowledge it is hard to believe that such a mix of fauna could exist together in such a relatively small space Also any modern book would have a balanced mix of gender and race whereas here we have four upper class English male explorers some Native South American bearers a loyal negro servant and ust two very stereotypical female characters with very minor rolesAs is usual for Alma Classics there are a few pages of useful notes to explain some of the references to contemporary persons and literature The cover has an outline drawing of what must be Lord John in odhpurs and pith helmet looking up at pterodactyls flying aboveThe book has a lively ending and promised adventures for the leading characters which Conan Doyle fulfilled with several short stories and another book The Lost World brightened up a couple of dull post Christmas days and for sheer ripping yarn entertainment I have awarded five stars Silly bad A surprisingly dull updating of Journey to the centre of the Earth view spoiler or possibly the assuredly illegitimate offspring of Journey and King Somon s Minesor possibly the line of decent goes through both hide spoiler If in 100 years I am only known as the man who invented Sherlock Holmes then I will have considered my life a failure Sir Arthur Conan Doyle This review will contain minor spoilers Although Sherlock Holmes Dr John Watson Mycroft Holmes and Professor James Moriarty are Doyle s most known creations Professor Challenger the hot tempered scientist is another character that many readers w Move aside SherlockSir Arthur has conjured a protagonist who s an even arrogant assbag than you Everyonethe intrepid the indefatigable the insufferable Professor GE Challenger If like me you enjoy characters that are gruff prideful curmudgeonly sorts than you will have fun with this guy He is a serious hoot Trust me Physically Prof Challenger is a funhouse mirror reflection of Mr Holmes Instead of a tall lanky clean shaven gentlemen who calmly condescends to the world around him we have a short barrel chested physically imposing caveman with a booming voice and serious anger management issues Tell me he doesn t look like the spitting image of

ARE THE TYPE OF PERSON WHO READ OLD BOOKSthe type of person read old books find something to be offended at this one can provide you a lot of material If you keep your mind open never forgetting when the book was written it really does not have any of the things as hey saw them in Victorian England I mentioned above Can we start with how this book written in 1912 was based off of the Friend Zone Poor Edward Malone confesses his love for a girl but she is not interested She tries telling him nicely rudely and all ways in between but he Just Doesn T Get It doesn t get it could but refuse me and better be a repulsed lover than an accepted brother So finally in a fit to be tied she makes up some excuse that he s not adventurous enough for her that he s not a daring and dashing hero And so Edward a ournalist races off to find the craziest adventure he could possibly findAnd boy oh boy does he find one hellova adventureEdward meets Professor Challenger an adeptly named adventurer who The Big Bookshelf just came back from an exhibition The professor is sprouting a whole host of impossible claims including that dinosaurs have managed to survive and thrive deep in theungleEdward the professor and few scientists set off in search for this Lost World and discover something far exciting in the process Periodic racism and sexism My instincts are all against a woman being too frank and at her ease with me It is no compliment to a man Ahhh there s nothing blatantly obvious periodic racism and sexism to wake you up in the morning Zambo who is a black Hercules as willing as any horse and about as intelligent From the half breeds to their loyal negro to the literal annihilation of an entire species This book is a wonder There are times young fellah when every one of us must make a stand for human right and No Future for You justice or you never feel clean again How ironic considering the first thing they do when they discovered Ape men was form a posse to slaughter them and sell them into slaveryNow if you can ignore all of that this was a pretty good novel It had adventure and mishaps and mayhem Our meekournalist really finds his stride and absolutely thrives on his ourney If only Sir Arthur Conan Doyle didn t play up the servitude and slaughter all the non white charactersAudiobook CommentsRead by Glen McCready an excellent narrator The Finer Books Club 2018 Reading Challenge A book AJ Rocks has readYouTube Blog Instagram Twitter Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading I don t like to end the book so soon I really love this book although I expected something gorier like dinosaur killing the whole tribe or cannibals eat human flesh Still I did love this book in many ways and as long as I live I ll treasure this book forever Hey stop looking to me like that I can still remember all the things I read from the book AmenThe whole ourney started when a Gazette Irish Charming the Firefighter (In Shady Grove, journalist named Malone went go straight to the house of notorious Professor Challenged claims that dinosaurs exist To give them proof the scientist sent away a team and of course himself toourney that they won t regret forever that talks about surviving extinction and friendship But when they went home a sudden change of fate is waiting for themThis is a good book and reminds me of The Time Machine It has the same narration with the book and the story was kind of documentation by letters of their ourney through the land of extinction There are boring parts in the book and mostly those parts are in the beginning before they left Anyway I recommend this book to everyone who loves to read Arthur Conan Doyle s works and people who love prehistoric animalsAs a science student I have problem regarding the usage of a scientific name on chapter 8 About Nuttonia vexillaria said to be a rare plant and the second word must start in small letters to follow the rules regarding naming a plant But I m not sure if the plant was in Latin because I did a research online and can t find the plantAnother unconditional moment on the book was the fight between the Indian tribe and the Ape men I was so shock that I can t stop reading that part that I want to know what happened to them and in the end my heart broke into pieces and nobody can help but to observe the real meaning of extinction It was a great example and I think most of the readers find it interesting since it has a symbol of how things extinct in real worldIf you don t like spoiler please don t continueI also find the naming of the Lake funny and what happened to him and to the girl in the near end I was so ashamed of him being too young minded bout love and so on Although romance did not emphasize in the book it happens that it was so funny that it keeps on popping in my head The right part they did not even proved everyone that dinosaurs exist and it was the best thing happened than killing extinct animals for selfish rightsWhen Lord Roxton mentioned the blue gay I have this feeling that His three companions deep into the ungle to a lost world where dinosaurs roam free and the natives fight out a murderous war with their fierce neighbours the ape men. 35 rating So tomorrow we disappear into the unknown This account I am transmitting down the river by canoe and it may be our last word to those who are I am transmitting down the river by canoe and it may be our last word to those who are in our fate Ironically the first part was better than when the actual adventure started I think it s because the writer did not indulge in so much descriptive rambling and lengthy pauses during the build up which allowed that part of the story to shine triumphantly with humor uirky characters and fun motivationsI loved the protagonist and Professor Challenger eventually I ended up enjoying the four main travelers but those two were the
most fun Challenger was especially thrilling with his brutish humor reputation and kinship withfun Challenger was especially thrilling with his brutish humor fearsome reputation and kinship with ape I laughed aloud a few times which I didn t expect when I first dared to pick this one up While the adventure part was full action adventure mode descriptive creative and chilling sometimes it left my interest in the dust The story became long winded and downright dull for many parts It has all the winning tropes testosterone overload as the men bond and pair against each other trying to one up each other s stories and heroics betrayals in the group adventures where people escape at the nick of time heroes not believed until they show evidence that leaves no doubt comedy and adventure mixed as one Unfortunately it s a little too action packed at times but overall it s still deserving of its classic reputation and will live on The Lost World was in theory very similar to the later Michael Crichton creation of the same name but in reality was a very different beast indeed Both involved the discovery of dinosaurs and both focused on characters Everwar (Cal Leandros, journeying into their midst only to find their small and inconseuential figures dwarfed and endangered by a new dominant foeWhat I found most disappointing about this novel asides from the prevalent racism sexism and every other sort of prejudice that was rife in fiction published during this time period was the drawn out events that occurred before the first dino sighting even occurred This was such a slim volume and I felt the entire first half unnecessarily prolonged for the limited necessary information it impartedOnce the ancient beasts were then discovered they even then featured on the page very rarely and instead much of t Who doesn t wish dinosaurs weren t still around Well maybe not the big bitey ones but how cool would that be Hell I d even take the huge face ripping ones too if it were an all or nothing deal I figure a little survival of the fittest would do this world good Since that s not likely to happen during my lifetime I ll console myself with movies and books The Lost World is a good place to be for those of us looking to get lost in a dino world This is a forerunner of the what if history throwbacks to the Jurassic period Being an olde A young reporter Ed Malone was madly in love The woman he loved told him he would only have a chance with her if he did something really heroic The most heroic action his editor could think of was to send him to interview Professor Challenger notorious for throwing the reporters out of his house literally throwing out Initially poor Malone repeated the previous experience of his colleagues but he managed to pacify the professor to tell him his story The main idea was that the guy claimed he found a a remote place in ianungle where prehistoric animals read dinosaurs still lived To make a long story short an expedition was formed to check the location and our reporter realized this might be exactly the opportunity to do the heroics so he became one of the volunteers This book is supposed to be a classic adventure so I will not spoil much when I say that the expedition really found what they were looking for This might be not the first book to use the lost world troupe but it is most famous Everything one expects to find in a classic adventure is here last minute escapes mysterious ungle testosterone overload people trying to shoot any animal in sight and ust pure undiluted fun perfect for getting out of a book slump caused by reading too many mediocre books in a row The first half of the book takes place entirely in London Usually in such books this is the most boring part but not here The character of Professor Challenger alone successfully carried this whole part by himself This says something about the uality of the way he was written Then again what did you expect from the creator of Sherlock Holmes The narrator Malone comes out as a decent character as well but he is to Professor exactly what Doctor Watson is to his famous friend lost in the shadow of a great personI can also mention political correctness there is none racism if you read the book looking for it you will find it but I personally liked the way most non white people were shown fearless and loyal sexism again there is no strong women in here meaning none which can beat the crap out of.
