  1. Move aside, Sherlock Sir Arthur has conjured a protagonist who s an even arrogant assbag than you Everyonee intrepid, the indefatigable, the insufferable Professor G.E 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 h [...]

  2. 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 fou [...]

  3. 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 throwba [...]

  4. Book Reviewed by Clive on whisperingstoriesAfter his initial success Conan Doyle spent much of his literary career trying to break free from Sherlock Holmes but public pressure and the need for a good income kept the two inexorably bound 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 exc [...]

  5. 3.5 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 interested 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, quirky characters, and fun motivations.I loved the prota [...]

  6. 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 Amen.The whole journey started when a Gazette Irish journalist named, Malone, went go straight to the house of notorious Professor Challenged claims [...]

  7. The Lost World is a classic work of action adventure that has a lively feel that made for a very fun read Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, best known for his Sherlock Holmes stories, has a way of writing an engaging tale For readers who fear reading books published prior to the later 20th century out of the desire to avoid dry, stale language, I would offer up this book Although it shows the sentiments, good and bad, for the period in which it was written, the writing tone could easily be as modern as a [...]

  8. He would be a harder, sterner man, not so ready to adapt himself to a silly girl s whim But, above all, he must be a man who could do, who could act, who could look Death in the face and have no fear of him, a man of great deeds and strange experiences It is never a man that I should love, but always the glories he had won for they would be reflected upon me Think of Richard Burton What Oh this Richard Burton I don t want to post a photo of the explorer Burton too many pics in this review alread [...]

  9. WARNING TERRIBLE LIZARDS CONTAINED WITHINThe Lost World by Arthur Conan Doyle is the literary equivalent of the plucky and elegant Caudipteryx when placed next to the stomping roaring Tyrannosaurus that represents the Hollywood mega block busters of Jurassic Park and the Lost World If it doesn t zip along fast enough it might get squashed But it does zip along quite speedily and has all the pre requisites needed for a boys own adventure story Specifically boys own, because there are no ladies to [...]

  10. I ve been on an adventure And I m quite glad I read this at an adult age The Lost World is an adventure novel through and through, pure in its quest for new thrills and sensations, a glorious and unadulterated pulp An old school fantasy escapade with all its props and d cor protruding out of everywhere And how I loved it for that It s a pretty safe bet that my 12 year old self would ve overanalysed it by acting all grown up and intellectual, nagging at the characters implausible actions and ster [...]

  11. Note, March2, 2016 I ve just edited this review to correct a misspelled word.Like one of my friends, I should say at the outset that my review can t add much to the excellent one already written by another friend, Lady Danielle review show But I ll go ahead and share my perspective anyway, for what it s worth While I did like the book, my rating for it wasn t quite as high as most of my friends gave it for reasons I ll indicate below But it s a good adventure yarn, still appealing on that level [...]

  12. I preferred Challenger to Holmes and dug up all the Challenger stories when I was younger I agree with the blurb forget the newer story by this name and read this one Great high adventure you don t seem to see any.Be aware that this is an older book and like others of its era it is NOT PC There are words used in the text that were acceptable then and are not acceptable now If you are aware of this and can read the book without it bothering you then you ll find that the book is well written if yo [...]

  13. Just cause the Postman ain t been bit lately don t mean the dog forgot how to bite B.E.Anthony In other words, just because the book is old, doesn t mean it s not a good read Me In fact, I ll go a step further and point out that victorian and early 20th century writers like Edgar Rice Burroughs and Arthur Conan Doyle were able to do what famed writers like Micheal Crieghton struggled to do, that is overlay a science based fantasy world atop the mundane and theoretically understandable real world [...]

  14. Almost every dinosaurs are alive movie owes something to this book a fantastic adventure story for young boys and girls that will make them curious about science and adventure.

  15. Heavy on the planning and preparation and a bit light on the action for the modern crowd Excellent for the period it was written and for those with a sense of literary history Quite amazing how John Rhys Davies fit the role of Doctor Challenger to a T in the 1992 movie of the book.

  16. What a wonderful novel This was part of a children s classics set that I ve had for years, and I felt something adventure like, especially after The Thirty Nine Steps And it definitely fulfilled my adventure urge Very much like Jules Vernes novels, The Lost World details the exploration of a hidden area in the South American jungle, where somehow the prehistoric dinosaurs and reptiles have survived Narrated by the journalist Ed Malone, it is honestly a wonderful readI was sitting at the edge of [...]

  17. The Lost World, by Sir Arthur Conan DoyleAs much as I adore the Sherlock Holmes stories it always saddens me that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle s other fiction often gets overlooked He wrote superb historical novels, some great horror short stories including the one the movie The Mummy was based on, tales of adventure on the high seas and just about every other genre you can think of And he wrote science fiction Like The Lost World.This short novel is not quite my favourite Conan Doyle science fiction [...]

  18. Arthur Conan Doyle s The Lost World focuses on a story about an expedition in the South American Rainforest, leading its four protagonists on a plateau which seems to surround a world believed to be long gone Confronted with dinosaurs like pterodactyls, iguanodons or stegosaurus, our main characters have to solve many difficult or even dramatic situations, and it s one enjoyable thing to read it The Lost World is written from the perspective of Edward Malone at first as part of a recollection of [...]

  19. One of the most pleasant aspects about reading adventures like those of Doyle, Wells, Kipling, and Haggard is the particular presence of the characters, their little joys and quarrels and concerns There s this humorous self awareness throughout the story that makes the whole thing read as if its being told, given over to the reader in a particular voice Certainly, this can be carried too far and made condescending, as with C.S Lewis, but it goes to show what a winking authorial presence can lend [...]

  20. It s hard to think of another long departed author, whose name is so well known to the general public, who would be so disappointed by his reputation Conan Doyle of course saw himself as a great historical novelist, in his dreams that s how he would have liked to have been remembered probably he d also have liked to be known for his spiritual writings Instead he has an albatross smoking a pipe hung around his neck, in the form of Sherlock Holmes.Of course after Holmes as Mike states so correctly [...]

  21. Primer libro le do del a o 2016 Muchos conocen a este autor por Sherlock Homes En mi caso este libro llevaba m s de dos a os esperando ser le do y ya era hora Divertido es leer una novelita corta de un autor tan conocido como no olvidemos el reconocimiento Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, tan alejada de lo que yo cre a que escrib a en general Y ha sido muy interesante.Un exc ntrico profesor de zoolog a llamado George Challenger ha regresado recientemente de su viaje al as y est provocando reacciones en l [...]

  22. En El Mundo Perdido , Arthur Conan Doyle se aleja del g nero detectivesco para ofrecernos todo un cl sico de la literatura de aventuras, en un viaje fant stico a la Tierra de Maple White, en el misterioso as El narrador es el periodista Edward Malone, que para demostrar su amor a una joven dama, decide emprender una gran aventura a la menor oportunidad Ser entonces cuando su peri dico le encomiende la tarea de entrevistarse con cierto profesor Challenger para saber si lo que aduce sobre una tier [...]

  23. It s a classic tale of adventure and discovery that goes something like this I m a journalist and my girlfriend doesn t want to marry me because apparently I m not adventurous enough So I decided to join an expedition with the narcissistic and venomous Professor Challenger to the ian rain forest so that he can prove his universally dismissed discovery of a lost world of dinosaurs and so that I can prove my manhood to my beloved.So we go, along with a couple other adventurers Holy cow, there real [...]

  24. This was read to us when I was at school and, while very dated, I really loved it I put it down at the start and forgot about it then just saw it was almost 2017 and it was for my geocaching challenge Professor Challenger was absolutely the zaniest part of the book and I am sorry it was so short I have to wonder about Arthur Conan Doyle perhaps he wrote his own self into the books Sherlock Holmes, Professor Challenger.

  25. I had never read anything by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and I didn t want to start with his most popular work Sherlock Holmes The concept of a lost world discovered at a point in history when the world was not yet completely mapped out and labeled appealed to me The Lost World was strangely appealing so I downloaded it from Project Gutenberg.This book had so many things going against it One of the main characters was a real bastard Professor Challenger is a big, conceited ape of man that will beat y [...]

  26. Lorsignori, volete vedere un vero dinosauro Conosciuto pi per il personaggio giustamente famoso di Sherlock Holmes, Doyle si comunque distinto nel genere avventura grazie alla felice intuizione di riportare in auge i dinosauri Il mondo perduto , forte di questa trovata, intrattiene ed affascina sfruttando la componente misteriosa che si svela progressivamente, oltre ovviamente a beneficiare di quella verve avventurosa intrinseca alla penna di Doyle.L apprezzabile humour inglese la classica cilie [...]
