An excellent adventure story, fun and exciting...Jurassic Park in 200 pages! I don't know how well a modern boy could enjoy this book, due to the antiquated vernacular and sentence structure. Written more than 100 yrs. ago, it is awkward and sometimes difficult to follow. Other than that, a great read! D.
Conan Doyle always keeps you turning the pages. All his stories rate up on top of the list. The Lost World is one of those books. You have a tough time trying to put it down. You get hooked immediately and are not able to stop. Adventure, mystery, action, all rolled into one. Highly recommended.
