Although I am currently enjoying this book, I thought ...By R. J. DayAlthough I am currently enjoying this book, I thought the buyer should know that there are several errors in it. The
first chapter sets the stage as being 1974 not 1874 as it should be. I believe Mr. Burroughs was deceased many years before 1974. There is also the fact that the second world war is not even mentioned. Those who redo classics into ebooks should be more careful with the dates. A true classic should be some where around a hundred years old.2 of 2 people found the following review helpful. Precurser To 'FINAL BLACKOUT'By ChheydenMr. Burroughs certainly demurs effectively by apologizing at the outset for his rudimentary efforts to narrate a terrifically simple tale. The story takes place two centuries forward of WWI. As such and with practically identical descriptions of an interminable war and its horrible effects on men it predates Hubbard's classic tale by 30 years. The outcome surely is mild in comparison but not for that reason is yet creditable. I do not enjoy reading authors who spend inordinate quantities of sentences describing a character's thoughts, except in the case where the plot of the story is centered on that aspect of the character's travail / conquest. Nothing remotely approaches that excess in this well crafted tale. The why it merits 5 stars.1 of 1 people found the following review helpful. Altogether IntriguingBy Kindle CustomerThough rather short, The Lost Continent is one of many books that speculate an alternate ending of an event or occurrence. Personally, I enjoy such books. The story is told in a fashion much like a person was telling it to you personally, with side notes and certain details stressed. I would recommend to someone who could get it for audio book, because the style is much better suited for listening rather than reading. It is the year 2137... The world has been divided into the western hemisphere and the forbidden lands of the eastern hemisphere. No one knows better than Jefferson Turck, a lieutenant in the Pan-American Navy, that entering the eastern hemisphere is against the law. However, during a terrible storm at sea, Turck is forced to take refuge in a land located within the forbidden zone. In this alternative view of world history, Europe has been isolated from the rest of the world for over two centuries and has spiraled down into primitive barbarism. Turck is shocked by the unforgiving lands he finds himself in, and by the fearsome beasts that inhabit them. This is the story of Turck's adventures in the land that was all but lost to the world. "Ihighly recommendCampfires comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in a way that excites kids about classic literature." Chris Wilson, The Graphic Classroom (a resource for teachers and librarians)About the AuthorEdgar Rice Burroughs was born in Chicago in 1875. He took inspiration for many of his stories from the classical mythology and literature he studied in his youth, and from the time he spent at an Idaho ranch set up by his brothers. The story goes that, while proof reading an advertisement for pencil sharpeners in a pulp magazine, inspiration struck. Looking through various magazines, with their tall tales of adventure, he was motivated to write a fantasy story himself. A Princess of Mars appeared as a novel in 1912, and his career as a professional writer took off. Another phenomenally successful novel was Tarzan of the Apes, published in 1914. The character Tarzan went on to become a legend in his own right. He died on March 19, 1950, having written well over 50 novels.
