The Land of Mist is a novel by British writer Arthur Conan Doyle, published in 1926.

Although this is a Professor Challenger story, it centres more on his daughter Enid and his old friend Edward Malone. Another friend from the 1912 novel The Lost World, Lord John Roxton, is also involved in the novel's second half. Professor Summerlee, who has died of old age around this time, is referred to by the mediums (much to the anger of Professor Challenger). - Summary by Wikipedia (8 hr 4 min)


Not my cup of tea.

This book was a huge stepdown compared to the previous one. simply because the Titlecharakter barely features in it and by the end goes besides his principles, while I do understand that ACD believed into Spiritulism, I do not think that this story is a good representation of the established charakters. Instead of trying to debunk Spiritualism the main characters are immedietly convinced. The following 12 chapters are multiple seances and different interpretations of the afterlife. Unless one is very interested in the storys of Professor Challenger or invested in Spiritualism, I do not recommend this book. The recordings are spot on though. No complaints there.

Reader has clear, lovely voice. Thanks so much and looking forward to hours of pleasant listening to a Doyle Challenger story.
