The Lost World

The Lost World Lowest new price: $27.95
List price: $27.95
Author: Arthur Conan Doyle

The unabridged classic on MP3 audio, narrated by Anais 9000. Three playback speeds on one disk; etext edition included. Running time: 7.2 hours (slow), 6.5 hours (medium), 6.0 hours (fast). Professor Challenger leads a fantastic expedition into a pre-historic hell.

Forget the Michael Crichton book (and Spielberg movie) that copied the title. This is the original: the terror-adventure tale of The Lost World. Writing not long after dinosaurs first invaded the popular imagination, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle spins a yarn about an expedition of two scientists, a big-game hunter, and a journalist (the narrator) to a volcanic plateau high over the vast Amazon rain forest. The bickering of the professors (a type Doyle knew well from his medical training) serves as witty contrast to the wonders of flora and fauna they encounter, building toward a dramatic moonlit chase scene with a Tyrannosaurus Rex. And the character of Professor George E. Challenger is second only to Sherlock Holmes in the outrageous force of his personality: he's a big man with an even bigger ego, and if you can grit your teeth through his racist behavior toward Native Americans, he's a lot of fun.

Kim

Kim Lowest new price: $14.81
Lowest used price: $16.99
List price: $27.95
Author: Rudyard Kipling

The unabridged classic on MP3 audio, narrated by Anais 9000. Three playback speeds on one disk; etext edition included. Running time: 10.0 hours (slow), 9.1 hours (medium), 8.3 hours (fast). Fun, jingoistic story of an orphaned Irish boy dragooned into the British secret police in Colonial India -- while serving as chela (disciple) to a Tibetan lama! Makes a spooky read today.

One of the particular pleasures of reading Kim is the full range of emotion, knowledge, and experience that Rudyard Kipling gives his complex hero. Kim O'Hara, the orphaned son of an Irish soldier stationed in India, is neither innocent nor victimized. Raised by an opium-addicted half-caste woman since his equally dissolute father's death, the boy has grown up in the streets of Lahore:

Though he was burned black as any native; though he spoke the vernacular by preference, and his mother-tongue in a clipped uncertain sing-song; though he consorted on terms of perfect equality with the small boys of the bazar; Kim was white--a poor white of the very poorest.
From his father and the woman who raised him, Kim has come to believe that a great destiny awaits him. The details, however, are a bit fuzzy, consisting as they do of the woman's addled prophecies of "'a great Red Bull on a green field, and the Colonel riding on his tall horse, yes, and'--dropping into English--'nine hundred devils.'"

In the meantime, Kim amuses himself with intrigues, executing "commissions by night on the crowded housetops for sleek and shiny young men of fashion." His peculiar heritage as a white child gone native, combined with his "love of the game for its own sake," makes him uniquely suited for a bigger game. And when, at last, the long-awaited colonel comes along, Kim is recruited as a spy in Britain's struggle to maintain its colonial grip on India. Kipling was, first and foremost, a man of his time; born and raised in India in the 19th century, he was a fervid supporter of the Raj. Nevertheless, his portrait of India and its people is remarkably sympathetic. Yes, there is the stereotypical Westernized Indian Babu Huree Chander with his atrocious English, but there is also Kim's friend and mentor, the Afghani horse trader Mahub Ali, and the gentle Tibetan lama with whom Kim travels along the Grand Trunk Road. The humanity of his characters consistently belies Kipling's private prejudices, and raises Kim above the mere ripping good yarn to the level of a timeless classic. --Alix Wilber

Cowgirl Up and Ride (Rough Riders)

Cowgirl Up and Ride (Rough Riders) Lowest used price: $43.46
Author: Lorelei James

Ridin' the edge of lust is fun...until someone falls in love.

For years, goody-two boots AJ Foster wished her dream man Cord McKay would see her beyond the girl in pigtails. Now that she's old enough to stake her claim on him, she challenges the cowboy to teach her how to ride-and she doesn't mean horses.

Saddled with running the McKay ranch, dealing with the wild behavior of his brother and cousins, and raising his young son alone, divorced rancher Cord has sworn off all women. Yet AJ's innocence and sexual curiosity is a temptation he can't resist. From the start of their bedroom games, they're both aware the pull between them goes deeper than just smokin' hot sex. Although the sexy cowgirl sets his blood ablaze, Cord is determined to withstand AJ's efforts to lasso his battered heart.

But AJ isn't willing to settle for less than the whole shootin' match with her western knight. Sweet AJ has the power to heal-or heel-the gruff cowboy...unless Cord's pride keeps him from admitting their relationship is more than a simple roll in the hay.

Warning: This book contains raunchy sex scenes that'll work you into a lather faster than a winded horse, graphic language, resourceful use of baling twine, and nekkid cowboy lovin'.
