Overview

The Lost World by Arthur Conan Doyle

The Lost World is a novel released in 1912 by Arthur Conan Doyle concerning an expedition to a plateau in South America where prehistoric animals (dinosaurs and other extinct creatures) still survive. The character of Professor Challenger was introduced in this book. Interestingly, for a seminal work of dinosaur-related fiction, the animals only occupy a small portion of the narrative. Much more time is devoted to a war between early human hominids and a vicious tribe of ape-like creatures.

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

Does not work in night mode-screen displays blank white pages. Spacing between paragraphs is excessive. Otherwise good book.

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.
