Acquired via BookCrossing 03 Jul 2009 – in my Uncon goody bag ( I managed to pick the one I had in my goody bag to actually read – pleased about that!)

I’d passed on lots of copies of this via BookCrossing as I picked up a small pile at the Unconvention, so I thought I’d better actually read a copy! This was ideal for a plane and coach journey on holiday. Shorter than I’d expected and the adventure does end a little abruptly, but what a great adventure, with dinosaurs, more exciting creatures and stiff upper lips all round. A smattering of colonialism and old fashioned attitudes, but also a good, old-fashioned gripping read. Particuarly liked the scene near the end with mayhem in Oxford Street!
