The Lost World is a science fiction novel without much actual science to it, which shouldn’t be that surprising considering that it was written by one of the time’s premier mystery writers. It’s really more an adventure tale than anything, and has quite a bit of interesting elements to it. A group o...

The Sherlock Holmes stories are hands down my favorite. I re-read them all of the time, especially if I found myself in a reading slump. The reasons for this are many, but I mentioned it because I have never read any other works by Arthur Conan Doyle. This year I made a goal to fix that small pro...

The things we do for love. The Lost World begins with our hero, Edward Malone, wanting desperately to propose to his ladylove, Gladys, and being thwarted because, as a mere reporter, he isn't adventurous enough for her. Not that she wants adventures herself; she simply wants to bask in reflected glo...

Look out! There's a Pterodactyl loose in London! This was as good as reading a comic book, or what I would imagine a comic book to be like anyway. Action all the way, fast forwarding through the boring parts, punchy descriptive words- no way of getting bored with this one. I enjoyed the fact that Do...

I couldn't enjoy this adventure properly. It's inhabited by racist comments, and this distracted me to a point where I considered putting the book away. I know it's an old story, but that doesn't really make it any better. Not to speak of gender issues. I felt this sotry was a short story stretched ...

This was a no-brainer for me. Dinosaurs! In the Amazon! I was completely on board for a classic adventure, and that's exactly what I got. The standout feature here, dinosaurs aside, are the adventurers themselves. There's the standard "great white hunter" character, the most likeable of the bunch, a...

As a classic of action/adventure I really enjoyed this novel. However the accompanying short stories were less to my appreciation as they were in no means memorable. The prose of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is magnificent although I must admit I prefer the style he adopts for his Sherlock Holmes stories....
