I had no clue that Conan- Doyle had written anything besides Sherlock Holmes, when I found this book and was blown away.

Professor Challenger is not quite the anti-Holmes, as he's a genius himself, but unlike Holmes, Challenger is an arrogant, short tempered, loud genius.

When he and the young reporter that becomes his 'Watson' discover hints of a secret land in South America, they assemble an expedition and end up trapped in a world of dinosaurs.

While dealing with this turn of the century Jurassic Park, they must find a way home, stay alive and deal with the fact that there may be other people in the 'Lost World'.

A great adventure novel full of daring do and a clever sense of humor. This is the best of the Challenger stories.
