This adventure story of finding a South American “lost” world is filled with creatures and dinosaurs which rival those of Jurassic Park. No high-tech special effects are included, but Conan Doyle’s superb descriptive powers are vividly conveyed in Whitworth’s narration. Given the Victorian setting and the formal speech patterns of the English scientists and their colleagues, this IS an accomplishment. All the humor of the text is brought out in Whitworth’s narrative style. The accents are exaggerated but effective, and complement this presentation for Conan Doyle fans or other period adventure lovers who may not have experienced this title.
