Having read all of the Alan Quatermain and She books and several other H. Rider Haggard books, I would have to say that I am a big fan of his writing. This book would have probably escaped my notice for some time until I had read more of his other books.
Sarah's condemnation of this book in her review got my curiosity up. I couldn't imagine Haggard writing a bad book. So I read it. This book did not disappoint me at all. As a matter of fact it is a very good book, love story or not. There is lots of action of course and some interesting plot twists. Christians should enjoy this book because it is also a story of early Christianity. If you are looking for an entertaining book, then I highly recommend this one.
OK the excerpt is dry as 3 day old turkey, but after reading a good chunk of this book it is actually pretty good.
Great book!!! I have never seen or heard of the the TV series, but I am sure that it can't compare to this story. This is the first book of Sir Arther Conan Doyle's that I have read and it just became one of my favorite books. This book is as much fun or even more fun than any of Michael Crichton's Jurasic Park books. Download and read it. You won't regret it.
While I am not usually a mystery fan, I did find this book quiet enjoyable. There are lots of interesting characters and no the mummy does not come to life. There is an obsessed egyptologist, his grown but young stepdaughter, her fiance the painter, the egyptologist's slave. A British aristocrat who is an officer in the army, A don from Peru and his regal daughter. This is to only mention a few. There are also more twists and turns than a high speed roller coaster Download it and read it. You won't regret it!
