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.

Journal Entry 3 by molekilby from Brithdir, Wales United Kingdom on Monday, July 06, 2009
Received as part of my Uncon goody bag. This isn't a book I've read or wanted to read. However, I feel now that I should and will. Thanks for putting them in the bag.

Journal Entry 4 by molekilby from Brithdir, Wales United Kingdom on Saturday, August 22, 2009
This was a book that I probably wouldn't have read had I not received it through The Lost World read project. It is a classic Victorian romp with the undaunting courage of the explorer, the scientist determined to make a name for himself, the clerk looking to prove his love. It also has a smattering of sexism and racism which shows the sociological concepts of the time and interesting comparison to today's attitudes. Another book I have suggested Brian Blessed as Professor Challenger and I totally concur, it was hard to get his image out of my head when reading it.

This is to be released as part of my Fourth Plinth experience on the 8th September 2009, it was great to read that the Fourth Plinth is mentioned in the story (page 95). Which means I'll do something Professor Challenger never did.
