Pleasant and easy listen!

(4 stars)

listened to all 3 in the series read by Ralph and enjoyed them all, he has a nice pace, is clear speaking and just pleasant to listen to. He brought the book to life and I really enjoyed them. I listened at night to help me sleep and I'm not being offensive at all by saying Ralph's tones helped me get to the land that sleep forgot!! Good books and good reader, thank you!

impressive

(5 stars)

a great book with a great narrator! I was unprepared at first. the story jumps straight into action and almost never slows down, opening with a horrific boat sinking full of men, women, and children. a great story though! has eveything from Nazis and submarines to dinosaurs and ape men, and of corse a happy ending. enjoy!

Wonderful idea, No soild ending

(4 stars)

I love the idea of being traped on that island and the idea of apes and dinos and mammals togeather. It makes for a good book, to listen to. I myself would never had read this on my own, but I was fortunate enough to have found this audio book. I must say that, although it makes a good story, do not believe the theory of evolution. And I would have rathered that it not be so depressing and that everyone was not killed off, but it made for a real page turner. I would recommend this book to people that like books that have romance adventure and can stay focused on a book because if lose track you will find yourself very confused. The ending was quite sudden but I guess suits a message.in a bottle. I really enjoyed this book and recommend this book to many peopl, Thank you libriVox for adding this to your library.

loved it but...

(4.5 stars)

chapter 9 would not load for me so that was kinda a bad spot to miss. However I got the main idea and still love the story and move on to the sequel.

Wouldn't have normally read this book. But since I could listen to it decide to give it a try. Really enjoyed it. Raplh's reading was very easy to listen too. Now on to the sequel.

A classic adventure

(5 stars)

Unlike most modern adventures, this tale starts out feeling like a war story, and is well written and complete. Its almost half way through the novel before you reach the forgotten land, and you really know the main characters when you get there. Hats off to the reader, who did an excellent job telling the story allowing a totally immersive experience,

Wonderful and Entertaining

(5 stars)

This well read book is very interesting and up scales some of our latest movies plots seem as though maybe some of the 1916 time fiction repeats itself in these 2009 times. A must here.

evolution & no solid ending

(3 stars)

the reader is excellent, good quality recording. i love the style of writing this author does. but i am not fond of this book. the book strongly backs evolution from apes and the idea that africans are lower on the evolution ladder closer to monkeys - just wrong, but i guess it fit in with the prevailing ideas of the time. SO, depending on your views, feelings, and how personal you take what you read... it may or may not interest you. Not really a book many ladies would enjoy. overall it was just okay. the ending is the best you can get with a message in a bottle type story. but not what i was looking for.
