Meet the Author

Arthur Conan Doyle
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was both a doctor and a believer in spirits, which may partly explain why his Sherlock Holmes is one of literature's most beloved detectives: Holmes always approaches his cases with the gentility and logic of a scientist, but the stories are suffused with an aura of the supernatural. Narrated by devoted assistant Dr. John H. Watson, Holmes's adventures were so addictive that fans protested the master deducer's "death" in 1893 and Doyle had to resurrect him.

Biography

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was born in Edinburgh in 1859. After nine years in Jesuit schools, he went to Edinburgh University, receiving a degree in medicine in 1881. He then became an eye specialist in Southsea, with a distressing lack of success. Hoping to augment his income, he wrote his first story, A Study in Scarlet. His detective, Sherlock Holmes, was modeled in part after Dr. Joseph Bell of the Edinburgh Infirmary, a man with spectacular powers of observation, analysis, and inference. Conan Doyle may have been influenced also by his admiration for the neat plots of Gaboriau and for Poe's detective, M. Dupin. After several rejections, the story was sold to a British publisher for £25, and thus was born the world's best-known and most-loved fictional detective. Fifty-nine more Sherlock Holmes adventures followed.

Once, wearying of Holmes, his creator killed him off, but was forced by popular demand to resurrect him. Sir Arthur -- he had been knighted for this defense of the British cause in his The Great Boer War -- became an ardent Spiritualist after the death of his son Kingsley, who had been wounded at the Somme in World War I. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle died in Sussex in 1930.

    The first true dinosaur novel!

    There's little I can say about this novel that hasn't already been said. Arthur Conan Doyle is best known for his Sherlock Holmes stories, but if people know him for anything else it is for this, The Lost World, the first true dinosaur adventure novel. The characters are fantastic and memorable. Professor Challenger the braggart, swaggering know-it-all who does ultimately know what he's talking about, suave hunter-adventurer Lord Roxton, who just needs a whip and he'll be a precursor to Indiana Jones, and finally greenhorn reporter Edward Malone, from whose point of view the tale is told. The book takes a while getting to the titular plateau but getting there is half the fun, and when they do finally arrive there's dinosaur attacks, ape-men, all that good stuff. If you like adventure stories and/or dinosaur stories then this is certainly a book to pick up.

    Did the tv series follow the books or did tv take his idea and do there own thing with it? I watched the tv series up until the last season and episode and the finale was left on a cliff hanger before they cancelled the show....was hoping the books could put my heart and mind to ease on how it ends up. Can any one tell me?

    Hope (Chapter One, Part One.)

    "Where's Bushkit?" Meadowwhisper, the medicene cat, asked. "In a bush somewhere," replied Ashfoot as he boredly moved his mouse from paw to paw, "Why?" "Because I need him for something." "If he isn't in a bush he would be in the nursery," Ashfoot suggested as he bent his head to eat his mouth, "but you know how much he hates it in there." Meadowwhisper sighed as she padded to the medicene den. Bushkit was there at the enterance napping. Meadowwhisper giggled inwardly. Always the last place you'd look. She quietly nuged him awke then bent her head down to his ear. "Want to help me with something?" she asked a twinkle in her eyes. Bushkit yawned as he stretched before curling back up in the newleaf sunshine. "Maybe next time," he yawned. There was the whisker twitch and in a flash he was in a nearby bush. Despite the lazy noon atmospere, kits were playing in sun, rough as ever, Whiteash, the youngest warrior, barely an apprintice, was sharing tounges with Shadowpaw, who was Whiteash's littermate. Snakeskin was instructing Sunkit how to sneak up on a mouse and Mistclouds was helping to repair the nursery walls. The four apprintices were likely planning a prank in fact, one time, Bushkit was allowed to be in the set up. But something was wrong. Bushkit woke up and looked around. Ten warrior sized shadows where hiding in shde of a tree and proteched by the tree which is the leader's den and the High Branch. When the sun decided to go down the apprintices went to thier mentors and they went to hunt, a noon patrol went out and Longstar chatted to Meadowwhisper. Dragonkit bounded out of the nursery and chatted with Talonkit before pouncing on him. Swiftpaw who had whitecough watched sukiky from the medicene den. But Bushkit held his breath. That is when he heard Melodypond, an elder, shout out: "Attack!" The clan reacted quickly, kits and queens went inside of nursery. Elders joined them. Warriors stood gaurd over the medicene den and nursery. Byshkit quickly went into another bush. Ten glossy coated cats moved into view. After a couple of seconds fighting broke out.

    Excellent

    Great book. However, there is too much spacing between paragraphs. Other than that, it's a must read.

    Poorly formatted, not recommended

    The sample I read has exposed hyperlinks, poor sectioning, too much space between paragraphs. The illustrations were nice but small. Needs an introduction to give some context.
