Audible Editor Reviews

In Doyle's short novel featuring Professor Challenger, the earth moves through a poisonous belt of the "ether" - the stuff supposedly filling space - and the protagonists observe what seems to be the end of all life. The novel, though a classic of science fiction, is painfully dated in its science and in its casual racism, which only surfaces occasionally but is off-putting. But Glen McCready's genial narration helps. He supplies appropriate voices for the major characters, including the rumbling, bull-like Professor Challenger, his dainty wife, and the drawling Lord Roxton. Overall, McCready delivers the somewhat talky text with careful expressiveness, helping to bring it to life.

Publisher's Summary

The sequel to The Lost World, Arthur Conan Doyle's Poison Belt reunites the ever-popular Professor Challenger, intrepid journalist Edward Malone, dashing Lord John Roxton, and the querulous Professor Summerlee for yet another adventure.

When a sinister poison envelops the earth, the entire human race teeters on the brink of destruction, forcing the comrades to implement a desperate plan for survival.

A cryptic telegram, a mysterious airborne poison, and an eerie journey around post-apocalyptic London - this is vintage Conan Doyle. Glen McCready's exhilarating reading brings all the tension and excitement of this classic tale vividly to life.
