Most are probably familiar with the basic plot - an intrepid, self deprecating reporter along with vain academics and a pompous sportsman set off to find a land where pre-historic beasts still roam the earth. The story takes a little while to get exciting as we are introduced to the cast of characters and to Professor Challenger's unbelievable claim that the he had discovered a land where beasts long since thought extinct still existed. But these precursors to the actual expedition are important as we learn the motives and personalities of the characters. And the action moves along quite swiftly as the four explorers find themselves in a series of (mis)adventures in the lost world.
