It is King Solomon's Mines... What can be said?
Brilliant piece of work. I mean, what can you really say that has not already been said? Let's just consider for a moment how many motion pictures came from this book? My favorite, of course, being the Richard Chamberlain and Sharon Stone version. I saw that back in '87 or 88. Perhaps, earlier than that. This book is a classic, and if not already on the list of 1001 Books to Read Before You Die, it ought to be! I've been exploring the classics, lately, and they always seem to leave me in awe. The sheer quality of the descriptions are just mesmerizing. You can almost see every location, every rock, grain of sand, bit of vegetation, and body of water the characters are describing for you. I'd have to say, that I am so glad I have read this book because no movie can do it the Justice it deserves.

Old style adventure
I loved the 1950 movie ( Stewart Granger as Alan Quartermain ). The original story shares very little with the movie versions, but it is interesting to visit the source material. Good narration.
