Review of Lost World

It is decreed by a merciful nature that the human brain cannot think of two things simultaneously.

Lost World, Arthur Conan Doyle

Novel: Lost World

Published in: 1912

Genre: Scientific Fiction

Author: Arthur Conan Doyle


The story starts with the protagonist, Edward D. Malone seated in front of Gladys offering her the hand of marriage. But, Gladys reveal that she would like someone who has done something daring. This urges the protagonist to fulfill her wishes. He goes to his editor for an exciting assignment who declares him to interview the dangerous Professor Challenger. When Mr Malone meets the professor, a great chaos ensues. When the problem finally ends, Professor Challenger reveals a sketch of an animal to which the world calls the professor a liar, but Mr. Malone starts believing him. Challenger invites Mr Malone to the lecture where he is about to deliver a speech. This is the place where Malone’s adventure begin, He joins Summerlee, Lord Jonn Roxton and Professor Challenger to the lost world.


Lost world is really worth the time as it is loaded with useful and valuable information. The characters of Professor Challenger and Malone would haul your entire interest to the story. After reading Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s detective senses this would be a total difference to the readers. The author’s humour in the beginning of the story would also be appealing. Lost world was not only known between readers it was equally famous among the spectators of the television. If you want a book to get lost in, I would recommend the Lost World.
