The Lost World by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

I enjoy reading Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, so I decided to read The Lost World.  I figured it would be an enjoyable book.

The story is about a scientist that finds a remote plateau in South America, and the conditions there have allowed dinosaurs to thrive.  However, the scientist is mocked by his peers and the public, when he tries to publish his findings.

He manages to convince one of the naysayer scientist to join him on a second expedition.  The team also includes a guide, various workers, and a journalist.

I thought the story line was interesting and the way it was written was plausible.  The characters were well developed and relatable.  At times, the book was suspenseful and at other times it was humorous.

It’s a great book and well worth reading.
