The mystery of 'She' continues

This popular work from the 19th and 20th Century is credited by other very well known authors as being an influence on their own works. Graham Green, Henry Miller, J R R Tolkien are among those mentioned in Wikipedia.
'She' is now available to read free online. Having B.J.Harrison read it to me is just wonderful and certainly worth the few dollars asked.
This work also throws some light on the mysterious feminine presence in the male where the feminine is projected outwards onto another almost ageless beautiful and terrible woman.
'She' is really an adventure story. Chests with scrolls, pottery and a letter.A record of a 2000 year search, passed from father to son. Kind of..if you liked Indianna Jones..you could like this one. Its very British and not politically correct these days and does reveal some of the prevailing bias of the times in which it was written. 'Indianna' would most certainly have read Haggard.

An exquisite listen!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I already have, when I was about the halfway point of the book. It's a delightful listen and the narrator does such a beautiful job representing each character. The story itself is an adventure one could only dream of.


What was one of the most memorable moments of She: A History of Adventure?

The fight scene between the savages that tried to eat one of their companions via "hotpot" and Holly, Leo, and Job.


What does B.J. Harrison bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He brings out each character's personality that I wouldn't have quite given them had I merely read it. He paints life into them.
