The Lost World is quite a departure from the ordered world of Sherlock Holmes. When you think of every dinosaur movie you have ever seen - you can see its origins in this tale of adventure. The language is not overly dated and is easy to understand but anyone not white and male is described as being more or less sub-human - so you will need to be able to get past that. The story was originally serialised and it certainly feels like it - with the story twisting and turning and cliff hangers abounding. This gives the story real pace and excitement. Worth a listen.

I love this story for its portrayal of the high Victorian adventuring explorers with their courage, swagger and soaring self-confidence. Add to that the pre-Jurassic Park dinosaurs plus quite a lot of humour and it is sheer escapism and enjoyment. Forget the modern wishywashy hero with issues and join Ned Malone and Professor Challenger as they plunge into the South American wilderness! I'd recommend The Lost World to absolutely everyone.
This reading was most enjoyable. The pace of the narrator was excellent and allowed the imagination to flourish. The transition of voices was expertly performed and characters were distinctly brought to life. Highly recommended
