The Lost World
The Lost World | Arthur Conan Doyle
Edward Malone is a man in love; the woman of his dreams being Gladys Hungerton. Gladys, though, is critical of Malone, as he has never done anything spectacular or dangerous to prove his love for her. Malone, being a journalist on the Daily Gazette, quickly finds a way in which he can impress Gladys. Malone therefore signs up to cover the expedition of Professor George Edward Challenger.Professor Challenger's scientific reputation has been damaged by his insistence that creatures thought to be extinct exist within the Amazon basin; and has therefore announced an expedition to regain his credibility. The expedition goes forth and is made up of Professor Challenger, Professor Summerlee, the Amazon adventurer Lord John Roxton, and Malone. The expedition also has a number of natives acting as guides and equipment carriers.

I enjoyed this adventure story that I picked up free LAST summer from audiosync... https://www.audiobooksync.com/ they give out free YA and classic audiobooks during the summer months if you have not discovered them already.

Just be forwarned that it is a product of its time, there are big game hunters, ape-men, Indians, negros, half-breeds etc on this adventure romp through the amazon in to the lost world of Pterodactyls, Stegosauruses, etc

I started reading this and then the news about the Amazon fires hit. Now, every time I sit to read, I get this sense of dread. This colonial mindset in this book is a huge reason why these fires started. Colonial greed is ugly. I have to put this one down for my own health.

Mehso-so

What a difference 25 years or so make. I loved this when I read it in my early teen years. Now, it was hard to get through. It is very well written, and this audio book had a great narrator, but I couldn't stand most of the characters. Self righteous, self important, and uncaring. They were quite satisfied with the part they played in the near genocide of an entire race. The description of the lost world was fantastic, the fate of it was tragic.

flying_monkeys This reminds me of a quote from Lost Lake (totally different world/genre, yes) in which an elderly woman who has access to hundreds of books says she has nothing to read b/c if she re-read any of those books the ending would change. It‘s always a risk revisiting a “classic” or childhood favorite. Sometimes they hold up, sometimes they crumble. Sorry this one was only so-so. 9mo

Anyone else use the app Serial Reader? I just started using it! It breaks down classics into 10-20 minute daily "serials" to make it easier to read. So far so good! #serialreader

DebinHawaii I used to use it and need to get back to it. Such a simple way to read classic books. 👍 9mo
readinginthedark Yes! I'm reading The Secret Garden to my daughter currently, and I've read a few others this way. It's really good for sneaking in bits of reading when you didn't think you had time! 9mo
Libby1 I love it! 9mo

🦕What is your go to bookish item you have to have while reading? 🦕 I haven‘t posted my Mr. Dino bookmark in awhile. He is one of my first bookmarks and my go to whenever I need a bookmark and can‘t decide which to use. My go to bookish items I always need are elastic bookmarks and a blanket. Pretty simple!

Graciouswarriorprincess I love that bookmark!! 11mo
Karisa Great bookmark! I always like a cozy blanket too (and a pillow or cat to rest my book/Kindle on while reading). A cup of something hot is always nice too. 📚☕😺 11mo

I was struggling until i vaguely remembered that this was one of the books i read many years ago when i think i read everything conan doyle had written after exhausting sherlock. A scientific expedition led by prof challenger goes to the Amazon basin to search for a hidden world of dinosaurs. This was the version i had, my life now is regretting getting rid of bks i owned in the past.

Billypar I always forget he wrote this because of how different it is from Sherlock. Great idea for an adventure story, long before Jurassic Park! 12mo
batsy That is a great Pan edition! I think my life is basically one long regret of the same 😆 12mo

Did you know Arthur Conan Doyle wrote a book called The Lost World? It‘s one of my all time favorites. This bookmark is inspired by his novel.

I‘m camping with my family this weekend and finished this while taking an #audiowalk along the edge of the lake.

I enjoyed this fun adventure story with dinosaurs. However, I definitely like The Sherlock Holmes stories more. One thing to note, I can read past racism in older novels by considering the culture in which they were written, but if that is difficult for you, I‘d recommend that you stay away from this one.

Yesterday‘s #audiorun: my farthest distance ever! This is an interesting sci-fi by Arthur Conan Doyle, with an expedition planned around the suspicion of dinosaurs in a remote area of South America. I think it‘s my first non-Sherlock ACD.

I write with a heavy heart, that I was unable to finish this book. The book had a slow pace with no real rush of adventure like I had hoped. And poor Mr. Malone was only seeking adventure to escape the friend zone. While I was excited to read this novel, I have to put it aside as I cannot continue with reading it. Maybe I'll try again someday. #didnotfinish

Saying that this is dated is an understatement, but unfortunately I don‘t think this is one of those classics that really hold up very well. I have more faith in Doyle‘s other books. I mostly just read this one because it was inspired by the events depicted in The Lost City of Z.
