This short story features Sir Doyle's Professor Challenger.

Sir Doyle's mastery of the English language is in full force. The ripostes between Challenger and Summerlee are almost worth the price of reading the book.

Alas, unlike the The Lost World, I have to say this book is barely worth the read. The biggest problem is Sir Doyle sets up the story very well and then doesn't seem to know what to do with it.

It's a setup for what could be a great post-apocalyptic world of almost unthinkable horrors. But Sir Doyle flinches.

The ending is weak. Oh, it's clear Sir Doyle was aiming for a teaching moment about humanity needing to mature and not take everything for granted and so forth, but despite his normal way of handling plot and pacing, he hamfists the whole thing to something rather drab.

There's no adventure. It's passive. They hide out in a sealed room to keep the oxygen in. They go outside and record a horrifying end to humanity. And then Sir Doyle does an almost bait-and-switch with the ending so we all may learn An Important Lesson About Life.

Read it if you are trying to read everything by Sir Doyle. His use of English shouldn't be missed, but you can find his writing in much better books by him.

It's just better than a two, but hardly worth a three. Rounding up, I give it a meh.
The Sinners from Mitar
I was so keen on reading this book that I got through Bookshout. I loved Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes but this book was nothing like the fine crafted Holmes stories. Much of it did not seem to make sense at all.

Basic story is a scientist has discovered something in the air after a comet has flown by. It seems to be more prevalent in the southern hemisphere but is spreading northward. He finds this not by examining the air but in the way that people are getting more irrational as time goes by. It is not something that can be registered with equipment, but only by logic. He quickly gets friends to join them and urges each to bring him an oxygen tank. One of these friends is a reporter and it is from his eyes that we are reading this. They seal up a room and as the 'poison belt' of air gets close to them they go into the room and seal themselves in and use the oxygen to make it through.

I guess I expect more logic to stories from Doyle. While I can take in the dated references to the time and handle them, the logic of all of this seems wanting. I could not suspend my belief that it was happening. One part was, I was reading what the reporter had written after everyone had died off. So you kind of know they did not all die.

While an interesting read it is not one that I would highly recommend. If you like the time frame it might be something to look at.

I cannot give this more than 3 stars; and even that may be a stretch. The narrative covers the period of a few days time when the solar system and earth pass through a "poison belt" of the luminiferous aether, which was still postulated in the early 20th century. The poison belt causes essentially all animal life on earth to behave strangely and to become catatonic for slightly over a day. Professor Challenger and his cohorts escape the temporary death-like state through the professor's insights and planning. The story is not very interesting in itself, and Conan Doyle does not provide the sardonic humor that he uses in other of his non-Holmesian writings. It's not tedious to read, and it is mercifully short. One cannot always hit a home run; and this was more in the nature of a modest bunt.

Professor Challenger and his adventurous friends are together again, this time confined to a room in Challenger's home while trying to escape the poisonous cloud the earth has encountered. As every living entity on earth is killed the friends must deal with the fact that they are likely to be the only survivors, due to the fact that the professor seems to have been the only person to have detected the cloud and prepared for it.
There is little action here. Being confined as they are the group can only surmise what is happening outside their field of vision.
The story revolves around their reactions to what they know is happening and what their futures will hold.
Although there's not much action or excitement here, it's an interesting concept. Doyle is, as always, a more than competent author. Altogether I would say it's worth the short amount of time it takes to read this novel.
