As with the others, I found this a good story which holds your interest until th eending, but a little too short and the ending predictable.
Read this finally a few months back after being a fan of the movie with Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee (not to mention Ursula Andress as 'She') Book even better than the film, although not for those who are committed to political correctness as many of the ideas and descriptions are very much of the time. An excellent read and great introduction to the works of Rider Haggard
Beautifully descriptive writing, but not the best Stoker tale by a long shot. Worth reading for the literary style alone.
As with other readers, I got a little lost in the second part, but keep going, it all fits the overall story in the end :-) A really good introduction to Holmes and Watson.
