    Move aside, Sherlock Sir Arthur has conjured a protagonist who s an even arrogant assbag than you Everyonethe intrepid, the indefatigable, the insufferable Professor G.E Challenger If, like me, you enjoy characters that are gruff, prideful curmudgeonly sorts, than you will have fun with this guy He is a serious hoot Trust me Physically, Prof Challenger is a funhouse mirror reflection of Mr Holmes Instead of a tall, lanky, clean shaven gentlemen who calmly condescends to the world around him, we have a short, barrel chested, physically imposing caveman, with a booming voice and serious anger management issues Tell me he doesn t look like the spitting image of Blutofrom Popeye Hmmm Intellectually, however, Challenger is definitely a pea from the same pompous pod as Doyle s most famous literary creation Zero charm, no social graces and a chip on his shoulder the size of Gibraltar He is a serious piece of unrestrained windbaggery that pins the needle on the Arrogasshat Pricktardo Scale And he doled out some serious happy to me while I reading Like Holmes, of whom I am a screamin...

    Can we start with how this book written in 1912 was based off of the Friend Zone Poor Edward Malone confesses his love for a girl but she is not interested She tries telling him nicely, rudely and all ways in between but he just doesn t get it She could but refuse me, and better be a repulsed lover than an accepted brother So, finally, in a fit to be tied, she makes up some excuse that he s not adventurous enough for her that he s not a daring and dashing hero And so, Edward, a journalist, races off to find the craziest adventure he could possibly find.And boy oh boy does he find one hellova adventure.Edward meets Professor Challenger an adeptly named adventurer who just came back from an exhibition The professor is sprouting a whole host of impossible claims including that dinosaurs have managed to survive and thrive deep in the jungle.Edward, the professor and few scientists set off in search for this Lost World and discover something far exciting in the process Periodic racism and sexism My instincts are all against a woman being too frank and at her ease with me It is no compliment to a man. Ahhh there s nothing blatantly obvious periodic racism and sexism to wake you up in the morning Zambo, who is a black Hercules, as willing as any horse, and about a...

    If in 100 years I am only known as the man who invented Sherlock Holmes then I will have considered my life a failure Sir Arthur Conan Doyle This review will contain minor spoilers Although Sherlock Holmes, Dr John Watson, Mycroft Holmes, and Professor James Moriarty are Doyle s most known creations, Professor Challenger, the hot tempered scientist is another character that many readers will be familiar with This is the first of the Professor Challenger series and the only one that I had read previously I started reading religiously in 2012 and The Lost World was one of my favourite stories from my pre review era I decided to revisit this exuberant and vivacious science heavy adventure tale that features dinosaurs and I m truly glad that I did.This narrative begins with journalist and international rugby player Edward Dunn Malone as he finally tells the love of his life Gladys about the emotions and feelings that he has been harbouring Unfortunately, it is soon revealed that she doesn t share the sentiments that Malone has been feeling and therefore he remains in the friend zone He just isn t exciting enough She wants an adventurer, essentially so she can bask in the glory of her partner s deeds As the archetypal example of a member of the friendzone guild, he does...

    A young reporter Ed Malone was madly in love The woman he loved told him he would only have a chance with her if he did 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 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 to do 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 Prof...

    Who doesn t wish dinosaurs weren t still around Well, maybe not the big bitey ones, but how cool would that be Hell, I d even take the huge, face ripping ones too if it were an all or nothing deal I figure a little survival of the fittest would do this world good Since that s not likely to happen during 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 dino 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 day 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 decide if it s thrilli...

    Silly bad A surprisingly dull 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 decent goes through both hide spoiler

    Book Reviewed by Clive on www.whisperingstories.comAfter his initial success Conan Doyle spent much of his literary career trying to break free from Sherlock Holmes but public pressure and the need for a good income kept the two inexorably bound His historical novels found little success but he achieved with his science fiction adventures of which The Lost World was by far the most successful And rightly so This tale of a hidden world is full of action with many mysteries to ponder Just imagine the excitement of the readers of Strand Magazine as they waited for the next episode of the story to be published just what creatures or predicaments would our heroes meet next As far as I know Conan Doyle never travelled up the He obtained his knowledge from other people s accounts but his descriptions of the jungle are excellent and help to build the tension before they even reach the site of the lost world.Despite the age of the book and the language of the time I found it easy to read Having the story written in the first person helped to maintain the tension and fear.The principle characters are those one would expect from a...

    3.5 rating So tomorrow we disappear into the unknown This account I am transmitting down the river by canoe, and it may be our last word to those who are interested in our fate Ironically the first part was better than when the actual adventure started I think it s because the writer did not indulge in so much descriptive rambling and lengthy pauses during the build up, which allowed that part of the story to shine triumphantly with humor, quirky characters, and fun motivations.I loved the protagonist and Professor Challenger eventually I ended up enjoying the four main travelers, but those two were the most fun Challenger was especially thrilling with his brutish humor, fearsome reputation, and kinship with the ape people I laughed aloud a few times, which I didn t expect when I first dared to pick this one up While the adventure part was full action adventure mode, descriptive, creative and chilling, sometimes it left my interest in the dust The story ...

    I don t like to end the book so soon, I really love this book although I expected something gorier like dinosaur killing the whole tribe or cannibals eat human flesh Still, I did love this book in many ways and as long as I live I ll treasure this book forever Hey, stop looking to me like that I can still remember all the things I read from the book Amen.The whole journey started when a Gazette Irish journalist named, Malone, went go straight to the house of notorious Professor Challenged claims that dinosaurs exist To give them proof the scientist sent away a team and of course himself to journey that they won t regret forever that talks about surviving, extinction and friendship But when they went home, a sudden change of fate is waiting for themThis is a good book and reminds me of The Time Machine It has the same narration with the book and the story was kind of documentation by letters of their journey through the land of extinction There are boring parts in the book and mostly those parts are in the beginning before they left Anyway, I recommend this book to everyone who loves to read Arthur Conan Doyle s works and people who love prehistoric ...
