Review: The Lost World

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, 1912

This book was a great choice to usher in my summer reading season. Complete escapism, great adventure, total fun, a real page-turner. A small band of explorers trek through the wilds of South America seeking proof that dinosaurs exist. While they don’t exactly encounter Jurassic Park, a pit of pterodactyls, blood-thirsty ape-men, and the Missing Link await them. Conan Doyle keeps the story moving, peppering it with humor, and creating another memorable character in Professor Challenger, the headstrong leader of the expedition who’s always ready for a fight.

  1. Remind me to remind you to never ask me to give you an opinion on scifi/fantasy books. Between this and Battlestar Galactica, we clearly have vastly different tastes in this genre of entertainment. If you had listened to me (a very negative review of The Lost World) you would have missed out on what you found to be a good read and I sincerely wouldn’t want to do that to anyone. The more good reads the better, I says!
