Editorial Reviews

Although he’s best remembered for Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s legacy also includes The Lost World. This 1912 fantasy novel has inspired several movie, radio, and television adaptations.
Doyle’s novel stars Edward Malone, a journalist who embarks on a dangerous expedition to South America in search of a "lost world" where dinosaurs still roam. Once he and his fellow travelers arrive, they are attacked by pterodactyls and meet a race of ape-men who are at war with a humanoid tribe. When the bridge connecting them to civilization is destroyed, Malone must find a way home.
In a sonorous performance, Paul Hecht adopts a gruff British accent when voicing the adventurers in Doyle’s fantastical and entertaining story.

Publisher's Summary

Experience one of the most popular adventure stories of all time with Conan Doyle's favorite fictional character, Professor George Edward Challenger. Challenger leads a four-man scientific expedition to an isolated South American region where, according to legend, dinosaurs and other Jurassic Era life forms still flourish. The intrepid scientists, eager to make historic discoveries, find themselves face to face with their own ancestors, threatening their pilgrimage and their lives. Written almost a century before Jurassic Park, Doyle's classic tale builds its suspense to a stunning climax, as we learn whether Challenger and his colleagues will make it out of The Lost World alive, and be able to reveal its secrets to the rest of the world.

A must for dinosaur admirers!

Conan Doyle's portrait of a mysterious plateau where dinosaurs and "cave men" co-exist in isolation from the modern world is brought to life by a talented reader. Every character is clearly differentiated by a different vocal quality or accent and the narrator's description of the dinosaurs make it easy to picture them. I had skipped over this classic novel for years and I'm glad I finally caught up with it. Recommended.
