Publisher Description

An Apple Books Classic edition.

Both Pompeii and Petra were excavated in the 1800s, and as explorers were searching for (and finding) more mysterious ancient cities, authors were finding new inspiration. Among them was Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, already famous for his Sherlock Holmes mysteries. In 1912, he published The Lost World, branching out into the popular genre of adventure fiction and crafting a story that will appeal to fans of Jurassic Park.

Ned Malone is a reporter who’s just been told by the love of his life that she wants a man who embraces danger. And so, he does what any man would do: He gathers a crew and sets off on an expedition with a professor who claims to have discovered living dinosaurs. What follows is a suspenseful story with hints of science fiction and Conan Doyle’s flair for mystery. After landing on a South American island untouched by time, the crew faces a betrayal that leaves them stranded amid terrifying dangers. Will they escape—and do they ever find dinosaurs? We’re not telling. You’ll just have to read the book.

Not bad

First time I read it. The adventure portion was excellent. The post expedition dispute in London is predictable and could have been summed up in a few short pages. But on the whole fun to read.

The Lost World

I never read a story by Doyle.
However, this book was very entertaining.
Quite an imagination, and the conversations amoung the characters were very amusing.
Similar to a Tom Sawyer adventure.
I recommend it highly.
