    1. A short novel from the Challenger series, I read it just after The Land of the mist which I hated and it was like finding sunshine after several months in the dark, but it is probably just all right.


    2. There s nothing really profound here for a modern sci fi reader but it does pack in a lot for such a short story a machine that can disintegrate anything, the imagined horror of what such a machine could be used for if in the wrong hands, and the death of one man to save millions All themes and ideas that have been explored in detail in other works, but for such a quick read, it was worth the time.


    3. The final appearance of Professor Challenger fizzles in an awkward, rushed story written near the end of Doyle s life when he was consumed with the supernatural In the story, Challenger and Malone encounter a mad scientist who has created a machine that disintegrates matter, causing invisibility and even the rearrangement of matter, and has sold the machine to a devious foreign nation This story is nothing than Doyle s attempt to sketch out the possibility that such a machine could exist In the [...]




    4. From BBC Radio 4 Extra Sir Arthur Conan Doyle s indomitable academic must investigate dastardly Latvian scientist Theodore Nemor Stars Bill Paterson.


    5. This is the fifth and final story featuring Professor Challenger and his journalist friend and narrator of the stories Malone Like When the World Screamed this is only a short story as opposed to anything longer indeed, this one is really short Malone is asked to take Challenger along to meet Latvian scientist Theodore Nemor who claims to have invented a machine that can disintegrate objects and re assemble them if required As usual, Challenger is sceptical about the idea and is proved wrong Obv [...]


    6. Humorous short story about a man who created a machine that can disintegrate almost anything Nice ending Could only find one quote due to the shortness of the book You cannot explain one incredible thing by quoting another incredible thing


    7. This short story is remarkable for two things First, a Latvian crazy scientist discovered beaming in the early twentieth century Second, Professor Challenger is faced with the moral dilemma if killing one person can be justified by saving the lifes of many others Replace the Latvian scientist with any modern day mass murderer terrorist villain view spoiler Challenger s reaction is pragmatic He ruins the scientist s plan of selling his disintegration machine to the highest bidder by disintegratin [...]


    8. A pretty exciting and quick read, in the style oh, so typical for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle For once, Challenger turned out to be the charming, kind and thoughtful one without too much fuss Malone somewhat reminds me of a confused Summerlee in previous stories D




    9. The Disintegration Machine by Arthur Conan DoyleArthur Conan Doyle is made even famous by the latest productions of Sherlock Holmes, Games of Shadows and new TV series.I had a teacher of Literature, in highschool, who said that all great novels have a kind of mystery plot Chevorkian is always on my mind and I think I have mentioned him quite a few times in my notes He is the best I have ever had, who made his students love to read, taught them what the real values are and all this with excellen [...]


    10. A short and sweet story by Conan Doyle It was so good to see two main characters from The Lost World back in action, and this time they are going to reveal a great mystery a revolutionary invention has bee made by a scientist, and it s up to Challenger and Malone to reveal if its genuine or a hoax There are no T Rexes or ape men chasing our heroes this time, but this story is as good as The Lost World.


    11. At the request of a newspaper reporter, Professor Challenger investigates a Latvian scientist, Theodore Nemor, who claims to be able to disintegrate and reconstruct matter by dispersing an object s atomic structure into the ether Ah Victorian ether Is there anything you CAN T do The rather abrupt ending left me wondering just who the good guy was supposed to be in this story.


    12. this is singularly the most inexplicable mystery that i have read thus far from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle well, if one cannot figure out the unexplained, might as well just trap one to prevent the potential damaging repercussions as always, the villain s tendency to gloat has led him to his own downfall.


    13. Not the first of Sci fi by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle that I read This is a short story which one can finish reading in no time, and yet have a strong impression of the duty of men of science towards the wellbeing of mankind Professor Challenger proves himself once again.


    14. Challenger outwits greedy little inventor in this short tale about power potentially being in the wrong hands.


    15. This Professor Challenger story was a fun read Theodore Nemor s invention provided an ethical dilemma, and the ending was a satisfactory if loosely moralized solution.


    16. This was the first story other than Sherlock Holmes from Doyle that I ve read I had fun reading this back then Highly recommended if you want to read a light sci fi ones




    17. It was an okay, quick read I ve read a ton by Doyle Mostly Sherlock Holmes, Lost World ect this wasn t one of my favorites but like it said if you want a quick read this is a good story.
