It's riddled with the racist and imperialist attitudes of the time - it was published in 1910. The Portugese particularly come in for a lot of stick, but the portrait of Prester John apprently inspired many African freedom fighters, and once you set the outdated views aside, it's one of the great adventure stories, up there, almost, with Treasure Island.

A must read , An absolute ripping yarn of the old school. I know that some people might think that it is racist , but it is a book of it's time, read in this light and I think you find a story to keep you on the edge of your seat.

Anachronistic, jingoism. Entirely unsuitable language for today's environment and truthfully not a patch on some of his other books.
