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 Jasper Fforde 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!

Picked up from Mol without too much persuasion because (a) I'm not sure I've ever read it and (b) I had a quick look at the Lost Book website but haven't yet had the courage to join in, so this might be a stimulus. Will bounce it towards the top of Mount Toobie and get it out there in this part of the Midlands soon.

Journal Entry 5 by Caterinaanna from Coventry, West Midlands United Kingdom on Sunday, March 22, 2009
Definitely a Boy's Own adventure story - the one real woman in it starts as strong and decisive, having a huge impact on the narrator's life, but ends up being capricious and as incomprehensible as the rest of the species were to the bold adventurers of the time. I have vague recollections of film versions of this, and I'm sure Professor Challenger was never portrayed as the ugly brute described by Doyle in those. Is that because a visual medium has a greater need for the appearance of the hero to reflect his status in the narrative? For all that there are elements of the anti-hero about him, he is still more a caricature than a complex character and for this, as well as the (non) role of the female of the species and other inferior beings I would say this certainly shows Doyle as the forerunner to Asimov in the world of sci-fi.
