Publisher's Summary

One of the best-selling books of all time, with over 100 million copies sold in 44 different languages. The novel was extraordinarily popular upon its release and has never been out of print.

Follow the journey of Horace Holly and his ward, Leo Vincey, to a lost kingdom in the African interior. There they encounter a primitive race of natives and a mysterious white queen named Ayesha who reigns as the all-powerful "She", or "She-who-must-be-obeyed". In this work, Rider Haggard developed the conventions of the Lost World subgenre, which many later authors emulated.

This is the blueprint for the Indiana Jones series.

    "Enjoyable book, difficult reader"

    The book itself is a fun adventure which yields exactly what one would expect from a book written in this time. I personally enjoy the narrative style, along with the slow and thoughtful considerations of various scenes and events which break up the immediate plot considerations. The story itself is good: it kept me interested.

    The reader, however, was a struggle. He mispronounces several words, and one particular name throughout the WHOLE book which, for the first several hours, gave me a "nails on the chalk board" feeling every time he said it. He also struggles to give the inflection in dialogue which the narrative itself suggests. However, there are no "mistakes" per se, and his voice is very easy listening.

    "Classic"

    A classic in the truest sense of the word. Excellent story & outstanding prose. The reader did a great job with a lovely voice.

    "terrible reading"

    I love the story and was looking forward to listening. I couldn't get past the first chapter. the reader pauses ever 2-4 syllables. it's just unbearable listening.

    Story
    "Worst Narration Ever"
    Would you try another book from H. Rider Haggard and/or Alan Munro?

    I would not buy another book narrated by Alan Munro - his poor pacing and choppy performance is exceeded only by his abysmal pronunciation. He takes a wonderful story and makes it exceedingly painful to listen to.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story itself is classic in every sense of the word. It is a foundational work in the genre. It is absolutely on the same level as John Carter of Mars and Tarzan.
