Loved it....

Old fashioned in so many ways, including language, but of course that is the charm. The locutions hearken to a day when language was happily taken much more seriously. The story is of course fanciful also in an old fashioned way, but slips the reader away into a fantasy land like few others. While dated by language and racist pronouncements, it remains a classic, not disconnected from other classics such as Heart of Darkness, and King Leopold's Ghost. I recommend it, even for young boys learning to stretch their imagination.
