The Land That Time Forgot by Edgar Rice Burroughs Book Summary

An Apple Books Classic edition.

A World War I–era manuscript is found at sea. It tells an astonishing tale of espionage, combat, and a tropical island where evolution follows its own harrowing path. The Land That Time Forgot is the first book in famed science fiction writer Edgar Rice Burroughs’ trilogy of high-adventure tales about an undiscovered land called Caspak.

The series starts off with a German U-boat sinking a passenger ship. A handful of survivors, including an American named Bowen Tyler and several British officers, end up taking over the U-boat and eventually stranding all the combatants on a lush island that shouldn’t exist. Here, dinosaurs and Neanderthals live alongside winged humanlike hunters. To survive the nightmare trials ahead, enemies must join forces. From the first page to the last, The Land That Time Forgot is a gripping read full of unexpected twists and heart-stopping danger that will appeal to anyone who loves action-packed adventure stories.

Gem. Great little read. Fast and fun and imaginative. Hope somebody finds these guys.

An Engaging Read. Although this is not another Tarzan, it's still a good story. The world that Burroughs presents is fascinating, yet it wasn't depicted as well as I anticipated. In short, this was a quick fun read, but not nearly as gripping as some of his other works.

What more can you ask for?. A direction impaired narcissist fights metamorphosis monkeys for a fickle broad because it was easier than distilling water with a full kitchen. 10/10

The Land that Time Forgot. Once again good old Edgar comes through. He's a great story teller. Just when you think you know what's going on, he changes it up, again and again. A true master at his craft. If you like the old writers don't miss this one.

Amazing! One of my new favorites!. This book is wonderful. It is a quick read and has a unique perspective and awesome story line. 10/10 would recommend!

The Land that Time Forgot. As a dinosaur-fanatic, this was an awesome read, but if you're not a science sort of person I don't know if this is for you. Though, if you're not into science, why are you looking at the reviews on a science fiction book? I'd like it better if this was the chronological end of the story and the ideas from the other two stories were added to this one. I also have trouble getting over how suddenly the romance built between Bowen and Lys... but that's all personal preference. All things considered, this is an interesting story; definitely worth reading.

Awesome. I enjoyed tagging along the journey of the two main characters. They enter into a dangerous world and they make the most of their situation.

The Land That Time Forgot. As always he does it again! I can't see how Edgar always manages to write intense adventure stories with so few words. Even though I read this book in just a few hours, it truly took my breath away. I highly recommend it!

Fun idea but silly things sprinkled in. The use of jujitsu to quickly kill two of three men that were holding the protagonist down just seemed so silly. 65% of the book was frustratingly on a submarine, rather than in “The Land That Time Forgot”. Some silly things can justifiably be boiled down to what science simply had wrong at the time, but there’s just too much other silliness that makes what could have been a fine grounded and fun story just… silly. The protagonist learns a whole language in less than 3 months. Come on. However, the general idea is good and if some things are to be ignored, it’s an okay read. Hopefully the other 2 books redeem some of the child like idealisms that bring this one down to 3 stars for me.

WHERE IS THE MOVIE?. iTunes, get the movie now.

Good to read a classic story. I had heard about this book before but never got the chance to read it The story line is a quick read and a nice to read an classic story

Excellent book considering the era. Similar to the author's other books, this is full of superhero men and helpless women, "inferior" blacks, and a lot of words I looked up in the dictionary, but overall a quick, entertaining read. If you can overlook the racism (author totally unaware of it) and look beyond the swooning females, it was fun. But definitely not accurate by 2012's measures, from the hideous and inaccurate portrayals of the reptiles to the descriptions of the "low" humans, as well as the obvious racial and gender atrocities. But it helped me understand my grandmother a bit (born 1920). Enjoy it for what it is, and ER Burroughs is still a fantastic writer of his era.

Brits, Germans, Americans, and only 1 submarine between them all. Full of twists and mysteries, this recounts the adventures of waring parties on an island filled with ancient creatures.

The Land That Time Forgot. Fantastic adventure with a humane touch

I hate Lys. Lys feels like the female love interest in a Hollywood retelling of a popular book in which Lys isn’t originally a love interest or doesn’t even exist. Conceptually, the island is kind of interesting though.

What an imagination!. I enjoyed this story. It was so well told, so well written, so well arranged. I could almost believe it to be true, and it was most absorbing.

Enjoyable. Really forgot what a classic this is!

Unbelievable tale but completely absorbing. Although it’s a complete creation of fiction from the time of “discovery “ of “The Land That Time Forgot” it still kept me reading I enjoyed it immensely

Truly a dreadful novel. Even accounting for changing tastes over the past century, it reads like the self-insert fantasy written by a thirteen year old boy armed with a dictionary.
