4.0 out of 5 stars Gee-wizz, 13 Jan 2003
By A Customer
Just a brief suggestion, don't buy the paperback. The lack of pictures of Mr Blessed's jaunts are a let down.
However the narritive is not, reading like a boys adventure book. You are quickly carried away by Mr Blessed's imagination and love for adventure. It is very easy to imagine his booming voice carrying you along. Worth a read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Has Anyone Seen My Horse?, 8 Nov 2001
This review is from: Quest for the Lost World (Hardcover)
I must first admit to being something of a fan of Brian Blessed ever since he appeared in the movie "Flash Gordon" many years ago. It's rare in this day and age to find such a character. In turns he comes across as mad, funny, kind, caring and always great fun. It turns out he can write rather well too...
"Quest For The Lost World" charts Brian's attempt to climb one of the world's highest peaks, and his journey to Venzuela to climb the plateau that inspired Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to write "The Lost World" - yes, it is based on a real place.
Brian is disarmingly frank and humourous about the discovery of his own limits, and keep us entertained the entire time with each day's adventures.
One section that had me laughing out loud was the summit ascent on the mountain in the first part of the book - where he suddenly felt much better after a couple of days struggling - so marched straight past the leading climbers and bellowed "HAS ANYBODY SEEN MY HORSE!?"
It goes without saying that you don't have to be a fan of Brian to read the book. It's a great read. I would recommend it to anybody.

5.0 out of 5 stars From one who knows - this book is both exciting and accurate, 4 Jun 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Quest for the Lost World (Hardcover)
Two years ago (as it turns out, a mere two weeks after Mr Blessed), I travelled to Venezuela and with my expedition party ascended Mt Roraima. The portrayal of the trek conjurs up imagery both exciting and fascinating, as well as bringing back memories long forgotten. The trek to the Angel Falls and the time spent in Canaima, deep in the Venezuelan rainforest is another section I am familiar with, and, again, one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited is brought alive for the reader through Brian Blessed. I congratulate him on achieving his lifelong dream of visiting Roraima - "The Lost World" - and recommend this book to anyone who has unfulfilled dreams of visiting magical and mysterious places.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brian Blessed - The Lost World (Hidden Depths!!!), 6 Jan 2003
By 
Coversave Books "Coversave Titch" (Yorkshire UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
Being a yorkshire person myself I found the tales of Brian's youth fascinating and entertaining a boy with an early obsession for the Lost World of Arthur Conan Doyle - a passion he pursued through his adult life conquering this vast plain and mountain at a ripe age - a true ambassodor for the notion that if you have enough passion you can achieve any of your dreams. Far from the loud and sometimes rude exterior portrayed of Brian on the big screen this book reveals a softer side. extremely entertaining and humerous. Would throughly recommend it and is easy reading ( I read it in two days)
