The Land That Time Forgot

132 ratings, 22 reviews

Imagine an episode of Lost mixed with the movie Jurassic Park and you might have Edgar Rice Burroughs' classic book The Land That Time Forgot. Set during WWI, it features a German U-boat with British captives that goes off course and gets sucked into the current of a "crater lake." Somehow through a freak geological and evolutionary glitch, the island is covered in dinosaurs and proto-humans.

Follow the pair of cast-aways Bowen Tyler and Lys La Rue as they set up "Camp Dinosaur," fight off bands of humanoids, discover oil for the Uboat (seriously!), and play house together in a sort of neo Adam and Eve in paradise scene.

Edgar Rice Burroughs has done it again! This is an amazing page-turning mind-blowing hard-to-put-down kind of book. I assure you that you will definitely be glad you read it!

Burroughs writes such interesting stories that I find myself disappointed when I get to the end. I always want more of it to read!

Excellent read. Interisting and flows easily. I love the ending even though i feel like the author could have taken the story much farther.

I was pulled into the story from the beginning. Fell in love with Lys immediately, even though she's a fictional character. Great read. Wish there was more to the story! Wonder if they were ever rescued...

Almost entirely narration. It tells you the result then tells you the details, removing any tension. And it takes half the book to even get to the island.
