Audio Book Summary

The Lost World is a 1912 novel by Arthur Conan Doyle concerning an expedition to a plateau (native name is Tepuyes) in South America (Venezuela) where prehistoric animals (dinosaurs and other extinct creatures) still survive. The character of Professor Challenger was introduced in this book. Interestingly, for a seminal work of dinosaur-related fiction, the reptiles only occupy a small portion of the narrative. Much more time is devoted to a war between early human hominids and a vicious tribe of ape-like creatures. (summary by wikipedia)

    I have read this for the first time and I loved it, very well written and descriptive. moves on at a lively pace and a real page turner. excellent!! however just a point, I'm not sure why there are different narrators, there are some really good ones but it feels disjointed to flick from one to another ... but if you can tolerate it the book is worth it happy listening x

    This was my first libravox recorded book. Using various readers took some getting used to. Each chapter is read by a different individual, both male and female. All are good readers and some more animated than others. The need for string voice distinction is not as critical for this book. The book has good description of the surroundings and the attitude toward various people groups is dated. The story is good, but not great, lacking the fast paced action of contemporary adventures.
