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.

There are loads of ways you can get involved and it won’t cost you anything. You can help us to write the story for the web series. You can join our special guest writer to reconstruct a stolen book in our weekly microstory competition. You can enter our soundtrack competition by creating your own music for the web series. You can produce your own animation.

And, you can read this book, tell us what you thought of it, give it away, and follow its journey. So join in, wherever you are, and have fun!

I dug out my suitcase to pack for the Uncon, and discovered a bunch of unjournalled and unread books from last year! Oops!

Picked up from the book swap table at the unconvention in Swindon.

I read this book last year and really enjoyed it.

A 'boy's-own' adventure story packed with heroics, cunning and scientific achievement. Conan Doyle's characters and descriptions of the 'lost world' are rich and believable.

A few phrases show the writing to be a bit dated (it is was written almost 100 years ago), but nevertheless it is quite thought-provoking from a scientific point of view. This edition was published in 2009 to celebrate the anniversaries of the births of Conan Doyle (150th) and Charles Darwin (200th).
