Bowen Tyler, his reluctant crew and a blonde heroine, find themselves marooned in a nightmare world of mighty dinosaurs and bestial apemen who kill on sight. This is the lost continent of Caspak, a hot, dark and mysterious prehistoric world located somewhere in the icy waters of the Antarctic. Their only hope of rescue is a note in a bottle flung into the sea. The survivors persist and penetrate the heart of Caspak to find the incredible secret that claws, fangs and spears have guarded since the beginning of time.

The Lost World and King Kong (This trilogy predates Kong by approx 20 years)
David Sharp's narration is OK, but he starts the first book in a bit of a breathless rush, however he slows down after a couple of chapters.Where he really falls down is his attempts at the different british accents;They vary from Comic caricature, to complete Laugh-out-Loud bad!
I would say nostalgia - "The Land that time forgot" was the first book I read as a kid.
Don't be mislead by the book title, This is the complete Caspak Trilogy:
"The Land that time forgot"
"The People that time forgot"
"Out of time's abyss"
If you bought them separately it would cost a lot more. That's Good value for money.
All in all, they're very entertaining adventure stories
ERB is the great master of the Fantastic. Very enjoyable reading. It's also interesting to go back in time to grasp a bit of American pop culture back then.
