Sinópsis del libro:

  • The first in Arthur Conan Doyle's series of books featuring the popular character of Professor Challenger, The Lost World is a classic tale of adventure and discovery. A scientific team embarks on an expedition to a South American plateau, where they find a seemingly impenetrable and dangerous world that has been frozen in time since the age of dinosaurs. The only edition with a critical introduction, this timeless story is sure to excite the modern reader.

    Forget the Michael Crichton book (and Spielberg movie) that copied the title. This is the original: the terror-adventure tale of The Lost World. Writing not long after dinosaurs first invaded the popular imagination, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle spins a yarn about an expedition of two scientists, a big-game hunter, and a journalist (the narrator) to a volcanic plateau high over the vast Amazon rain forest. The bickering of the professors (a type Doyle knew well from his medical training) serves as witty contrast to the wonders of flora and fauna they encounter, building toward a dramatic moonlit chase scene with a Tyrannosaurus Rex. And the character of Professor George E. Challenger is second only to Sherlock Holmes in the outrageous force of his personality: he's a big man with an even bigger ego, and if you can grit your teeth through his racist behavior toward Native Americans, he's a lot of fun.

  • In The Lost World, the first in a series of books to feature the bold Professor Challenger?a character many critics consider one of the most finely drawn in science fiction?Challenger and his party embark on an expedition to a remote Amazonian plateau where, as the good professor puts it, the ordinary laws of Nature are suspended and numerous prehistoric creatures and ape-men have survived. Just as Sherlock Holmes set the standard?and in some sense established the formula?for the detective story . . . , so too has The Lost World set the standard and the formula for fantasy-adventure stories . . . , Michael Crichton writes in his Introduction. The tone and techniques that Conan Doyle first refined in The Lost World have become standard narrative procedures in popular entertainment of the present day.

  • The Lost World (1912) is Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's adventure novel featuring his second most famous hero, Professor Challenger. Edward Malone, a reporter for the Daily Gazette, volunteers for a mission with the eccentric Challenger, who's claimed to have found living dinosaurs in the Amazon. With another scientist and a big game hunter they travel to a volcanic plateau overlooking the vast rainforest. Dinosaurs were totally ""in"" in 1912, so Doyle's The Lost World was a massive hit among teenaged boys all over the world. This story is told from the perspective of Malone instead of Dr. Watson; and Challenger's personality is aggressive and dominating (unlike Holmes's) - so Doyle was able to open up more with the narrative. Thus we find more overt humor and wise-cracks in this book, especially between the two scientists. The Lost World also falls into the popular ""boys' books"" genre, but since Doyle was unsatisfied with the typical character portrayals in these books, he gave his char...

  • In the late 1800s, a newspaper reporter attempts to impress his lady friend by joining an expedition led by Professor Challenger, which takes him along the Amazon in a search for a hidden valley populated by still-living dinosaurs. Unrelated to the Michael Crichton novel and film of the same name (which, incidentally, are named in homage to this book), this classic--but strikingly politically incorrect by today's standards--science fiction novel was filmed in the 1920s, and has been remade at least four more times (with little success).
