The Lost World - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Forget the Michael Crichton book (and Spielberg movie) that copied the title. This is the ... more

original: the terror-adventure tale of The Lost
World. Writing  not long after dinosaurs first
invaded the popular imagination, Sir Arthur Conan 
Doyle spins a yarn about an expedition of two
scientists, a big-game hunter and a  journalist
(the narrator) to a volcanic plateau high over the
vast Amazon rain forest.  The bickering of the
professors (a type Doyle knew well from his
medical training)  serves as witty contrast to the
wonders of flora and fauna they encounter,
building  toward a dramatic moonlit chase scene
with a Tyrannosaurus Rex. And the character  of
Professor George E. Challenger is second only to
Sherlock Holmes in the  outrageous force of his
personality: he's a big man with an even bigger
ego, and if you  can grit your teeth through his
racist behaviour towards the natives, he's a lot
of fun.
