Book Description

5 Jan 2009 Classic Fiction
This is the precursor of Jurassic Park. Somewhere in South America, there is a plateau; and roaming in its forests are dinosaurs. Only one man has ever been there, and his reports are so astonishing that no-one is prepared to believe him; except the extraordinary Professor Challenger. He decides to take a trip to prove beyond doubt that this lost world really exists. With the daredevil journalist Edward Malone, meticulous, skeptical Professor Summerlee and the professional adventurer Lord John Roxton, Challenger sets out on a mission as dangerous as it is thrilling. Inspiring endless imitations, "The Lost World" is Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic adventure of discovery.

Review

'McCready's performance captures the time and tone of Doyle's material perfectly.' --Publishers Weekly

As Thinking Boy's Adventure it can't be beaten - and the narrator sounds uncannily like a driven 19th-century adventurer himself! --Rachel Redford, The Oldie

5.0 out of 5 stars A Cracking Adventure! 2 Nov 2011
First and foremost, this is a wonderful, wonderful story; a 'proper' adventure yarn of the old school.

Conan Doyle is, of course, much better known for his creation of the world's most famous fictional detective, Sherlock Holmes. But the great man wrote much, much more and amongst his very best non-Holmes work is the utterly impossible Professor Challenger. This tale (there are others) centres around the irascible Challenger who asserts, to the disbelieve and scorn of the scientific elite in London, that a lost world exists deep within the Amazon jungle - a world which implausibly has remained locked in time. Yes, a land where dinosaurs still rule the earth!

The scene is wonderfully set, then, for an hugely enjoyable, romp of an adventure into the depths of South America, where Challenger and his three intrepid companions encounter prehistoric creatures, 'ape men', double-crossing natives and much, much more.

The pace of the story is suburb and Conan Doyle's writing is so rich both in his description of the main characters, but also in the way he creates endless twists and turns to the fate of the adventurers.

I'll say no more about the plot because I wouldn't wish to spoil your listening/reading save that I would urge you buy either the book or this excellent Naxos audio book which I have listend to in the car on my way to and from work over one week.

I find reviews of audio books are often restricted to the book itself with no mention at all of the quality of the recording so I'll conclude my comment by giving more than a nod of appreciation to Glen McCready, the brilliant narrator of The Lost World. I confess I don't know Mr McCready but boy, does he read a good story.
