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!

(Oh, and sometimes you’ll need a password to get into sections of Only people with a copy of this book will have the password, so these areas will be exclusive to you. The password is: the last word on page 150 of this book. Don’t forget!)

Update: The Lost Book ran until July 2009 and is now finished - apart from lots of books like this one that are still travelling and finding new readers!

Journal Entry 3 by Ajer from -- wild release somewhere in Oslo, Oslo fylke Norway on Saturday, June 13, 2009
I got the book from my grandmother, who had picked it up someplace in Edinburgh, at an opera or something, while visiting her son who lives there. We live in Oslo, Norway.

I have now read the book, and I liked it quite much, but the constant hints in the beginning of each chapter of what was to happen annoyed me slightly. But the story itself was exciting and Arthur Conan Doyle language is good.

I plan to give the book to a friend of mine, who really wants to read it.

I got it from a friend of mine. She talked about it and how it travels about, and I got interested.
I don't know who I'll pass it on to yet. I'm soon going on a holiday to Bulgaria, maybe I'll find someone there to give it to. Or I'll give it to my aunt, who also likes to read and are coming with us.
