About this Recording

DOYLE, A.C.: Poison Belt (Unabridged)

The world is on the brink of disaster: a cloud of poison is soon to envelop the planet, killing all mankind with it. There seems to be no way anyone can escape. But Professor Challenger is not one to let an approaching apocalypse stifle him. Calling together his three friends from their earlier adventure in The Lost World, he sets about ensuring that they can survive. But will it be enough?

In the tradition of H.G. Wells, The Poison Belt is a significant book in British science fiction history. It is also a fast-paced adventure story that is disarmingly touching.
