All the Brothers Were Valiant

by Ben Ames Williams

La película siempre me produjo cierta fascinación. Leer el libro era una antigua deuda y debo decir que para nada defraudó mis expectativas. El enfrentamiento final supera al de la versión cinematográfica.

King Solomon's Mines

by H. Rider Haggard

Written more than a hundred years ago, King Solomon´s mines has not lost its popularity. The story begins when Allan Quatermani is hired by an English Gentleman, Sir Henry Curtis, to follow the trail of his brother, of whom nothing has been known since he departed in search of the legendary mines. Although the enterprise shows itself a very dangerous one, hunter Quatermain accepts the challenge because of the money involved, which he needs to assist his son. With an old map and a few clues, the main characters begin a voyage that will take them, trough deserts and mountains, to the untamed regions of Africa. As the plot advances, the characters find a lost tribe that receives them as gods because of thir white skins and fire arms, unknown to them. Soon a war is unleashed, and only his cunning and marksmanship will keep Allan Quatermain alive.

The Abandoned Room

by Wadsworth Camp

I have just finished reading this book and I would like to begin again to see how exactly the loose piedes fit at the end.I think there are some details that could have been changed in order to attain verosimilitude, but anyway this is a great book.
