    "An enjoyable adventure into the unknown"

    I found this novel to be imaginative and interesting. The voices that Matthew Rhys employs seems to accurately portray the characters, their personalities and keep the listener tracking on who is speaking. As in other books by A. Doyle, this one is has suspense and is quite entertaining. It left me wishing he had followed it up with another adventure into The Lost World.

    "The original steampunk?"

    Scrumptious Victorian Science Fiction! Very slightly cheesy and wonderfully entertaining novel (novella?) by Arthur Conan Doyle. Subdued and authentically Victorian (more steam, less punk) compared to, say, Neal Stephenson's equally scrumptious Diamond Age.

    "Couldn't finish it"

    I was drawn to this book by David Grann's "The Lost City of Z." Grann's historical account of the British explorer Percy Fawcett's search for a fabled ancient civilization in Brazil was wonderful. In that book, Grann mentions that Fawcett's search for Z was used by Doyle for his novel, "The Lost World." I found little resemblance between the rich and mysterious character of Fawcett and the overblown Professor Challenger in "The Lost World." The melodramatic nature of the narration, particularly in the voice of Challenger, made it impossible to finish. This was one of my few disappointments at audible.com.
