On a zoology expedition up the Amazon River, Professor Challenger makes an inexplicable discovery. Back in London, his claims are ridiculed throughout the professional community. Reluctantly, he recounts to journalist Edward Malone, 'Curupuri is the spirit of the woods, something terrible, something malevolent, something to be avoided. None can describe its shape or nature, but it is a word of terror along the Amazon. Something terrible lay that way. It was my business to find out what it was.'

Professor Challenger vows to prove his tale at a zoological meeting, and a party is formed to find the truth. Malone joins adventurer Lord John Roxton and staid professor Summerlee on the mission. They journey to the depths of the Amazon, well provisioned and armed to the teeth. But how little they are prepared for what they find there.

Today, Arthur Conan Doyle is best known as the creator of Sherlock Holmes, but he was also the author of many science fiction novels, and The Lost World was one of his best. This original tale of the 'living dinosaurs' was the inspiration for many others of its kind, including Michael Crichton's Jurassic Park.

    I really like Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's writing style and the way he develops his characters. This was an enjoyable "read" and the narrator did a good job.

  • Anonymous

    This is much better than the modern books and I'm qute the fan of the new ones. Everything about it was enjoyable.

    I have always liked Sir Arthur, and Edger Rice Burroughs as well. I have never read Sir Arthur in my life until now. I enjoyed the CD though I wish different actors had been used to narrate the text. It would have made it less confusing to distinguish between the characters being portrayed.
