Welcome to The Lost World Read 2009!

You’ve got hold of a book that is part of the UK’s largest reading campaign. We’re celebrating Arthur Conan Doyle’s 150th birthday and Charles Darwin’s bicentenary by bringing people across the UK together to read a classic adventure tale of a lost plateau, discovery and dinosaurs - The Lost World.

Investigative journalist Ed Malone joins a band of explorers sent to South America to prove that deep in the jungle there is a forgotten world where dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals still survive. What do they find - and will they make it home to tell the tale? It's the first Conan Doyle story featuring the larger-than-life Professor Challenger.

And, welcome to The Lost Book!

The Lost Book is a collaborative adventure in storytelling. It’s taking place online and anyone can join in. At its heart is an animated web series: the adventures of 21st century investigative journalist Aileen Adler.

This was in my goody bag at the Uncon. Thanks very much to The Lost Book.

I read this a couple of month's back and to be honest, thought it was an 'OK' rather than a great book. However, I know there are many others who disagree with me on that.I shall be letting this copy travel soon.

Finished today. A quick and easy read. I enjoyed the plot and it was interesting to see how Conan Doyle includes Darwin in (there were several mentions). What struck me while reading this book is the mystery that the Amazon held 100 years ago and the fact that it continues to do so. While we have yet to find dinosaurs in the Amazon, we continue to find new species that will probably be extinct in a few years because of clear cutting. I wonder if in a 100 years time this book will be a historical account of the awe and splendor of an extinct landscape.
