Journalist Ed Malone is looking for an adventure and that's exactly what he finds when he meets the eccentric Professor Challenger an adventure that leads Malone and. Ssics there are a few pages of useful notes to explain some of the references to contemporary persons and literature The cover has an outline rawing of what must be Lord John in jodhpurs and pith helmet looking up at pterodactyls flying aboveThe book has a lively ending and promised adventures for the leading characters which Conan Doyle fulfilled with several short stories and another book The Lost World brightened up a couple of The Rose Tattoo and Other Plays dull post Christmasays and for sheer ripping yarn entertainment I have awarded five stars Who The Undoing Project doesn t wishinosaurs weren t still around Well maybe not the big bitey ones but how cool would that be Hell I First Flight (Dragon School d even take the huge face ripping ones too if it were an all or nothingeal I figure a little survival of the fittest would The Lone Man do this world good Since that s not likely to happenuring my lifetime I ll console myself with movies and books The Lost World is a good place to be for those of us looking to get lost in a ino world This is a forerunner of the what if history throwbacks to the Jurassic period Being an older work it suffers for the style of the ay Sometimes writing styles of various eras aren t all that bad but this one s no good Nothing kills the momentum surprise and thrill of reading when the author preempts a thrilling surprise scene by announcing that a thrilling surprise happened and I m about to tell you about it Damn it man we can The Amazing Adventures of Dietgirl decide if it s thrilling and furthero you even know what a surprise isArthur Conan Doyle Skills for Practice in Occupational Therapy did better work with his Sherlock series This book is a fun adventure but it s not a great read The set up takes a while The action moves a bit and the stakes are fairly high but a bit and fairly shouldn t be theescriptives used to Voice and Articulation Drillbook describe this Silly bad A surprisinglyull updating of Journey to the centre of the Earth view spoiler or possibly the assuredly illegitimate offspring of Journey and King Somon s Minesor possibly the line of Sailing decent goes through both hide spoiler A young reporter Ed Malone was madly in love The woman he loved told him he would only have a chance with her if heid something really heroic The most heroic action his editor could think of was to send him to interview Professor Challenger notorious for throwing the reporters out of his house literally throwing out Initially poor Malone repeated the previous experience of his colleagues but he managed to pacify the professor to tell him his story The main idea was that the guy claimed he found a a remote place in ian jungle where prehistoric animals read Aloha Rodeo dinosaurs still lived To make a long story short an expedition was formed to check the location and our reporter realized this might be exactly the opportunity too the heroics so he became one of the volunteers This book is supposed to be a classic adventure so I will not spoil much when I say that the expedition really found what they were looking for This might be not the first book to use the lost world troupe but it is most famous Everything one expects to find in a classic adventure is here last minute escapes mysterious jungle testosterone overload people trying to shoot any animal in sight and just pure undiluted fun perfect for getting out of a book slump caused by reading too many mediocre books in a row The first half of the book takes place entirely in London Usually in such books this is the most boring part but not here The character of Professor Challenger alone successfully carried this whole part by himself This says something about the uality of the way he was written Then again what Truths We Confess - Volume 3 did you expect from the creator of Sherlock Holmes The narrator Malone comes out as aecent character as well but he is to Professor exactly what Doctor Watson is to his famous friend lost in the shadow of a great personI can also mention political correctness there is none racism if you read the book looking for it you will find it but I personally liked the way most non white people were shown fearless and loyal sexism again there is no strong women in here meaning none which can beat the crap out of any inosaur using
