I chose this as a sequel to the brilliant Conan Doyle novel The Lost World as it follows the same characters through later adventures. But for anyone hoping for the comforting strength and moral certainty of that previous story, this one comes as a bit of a surprise. There is very little actual action and the plot is rather disturbingly creepy and I wondered if there was an allegorical meaning buried inside it as environmental annihilation threatens mankind! Too early for climate change but rather like Noah's flood? The Victorian adventurers still brave the most terrible perils but it's not a patch on The Lost World in my opinion
