Description

The zoologist Professor Challenger claims that the prehistoric life still exists on a plateau in South America’s Amazon basin but no one believes him. When an adventurous reporter Edward Malone meets him, they embark along with a scientist Professor Summerlee and an Amazone adventurer Lord John Roxton on an expedition to verify his claim. The Professor was right: the “lost world” was not lost after all. The dinosaurs existed; ape-like men still trampled the earth; and they were not friendly. The adventurers have to survive them if they want to see the civilized world again.

Author Biography

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) was born in Edinburgh, Scotland from where he did his graduation in medicine in 1881. He had started writing and publishing short stories to some acclaim during his student life but it was after the publication of A Study in Scarlet, his first Sherlock Holmes work that he became widely famous. Arguably the best crime fiction character ever, Sherlock Holmes practically made Doyle immortal as a writer. Featuring Holmes he wrote 4 novels and 56 short stories. Doyle was a prolific writer and in addition to his Holmes oeuvre he wrote many other novels and short stories. Among them The Lost World is another great work of fiction.
