Sintesi dell'editore

The sequel to The Lost World, Arthur Conan Doyle's Poison Belt reunites the ever-popular Professor Challenger, intrepid journalist Edward Malone, dashing Lord John Roxton, and the querulous Professor Summerlee for yet another adventure.

When a sinister poison envelops the earth, the entire human race teeters on the brink of destruction, forcing the comrades to implement a desperate plan for survival.

A cryptic telegram, a mysterious airborne poison, and an eerie journey around post-apocalyptic London - this is vintage Conan Doyle. Glen McCready's exhilarating reading brings all the tension and excitement of this classic tale vividly to life.

Meh. Great narrator, weak story

I wasn't a huge fan of The Lost World's story arch but loved the characters, especially Lord John.
I found this story even less interesting, and definitely more racists and sexist.
Most of the time is spent blabbing on about how worried they are, without anything actually happening.

The narration is absolutely perfect though.

Not a sequel

It’s the same characters, but there are no dinosaurs. They do not go back to the Lost World. It all happens in England

Science fiction story quite unlike most of Conan Doyle

I chose this as a sequel to the brilliant Conan Doyle novel The Lost World as it follows the same characters through later adventures. But for anyone hoping for the comforting strength and moral certainty of that previous story, this one comes as a bit of a surprise. There is very little actual action and the plot is rather disturbingly creepy and I wondered if there was an allegorical meaning buried inside it as environmental annihilation threatens mankind! Too early for climate change but rather like Noah's flood? The Victorian adventurers still brave the most terrible perils but it's not a patch on The Lost World in my opinion
