But, as a long time fan of Alan Quarterman, I don't think this is one of H. Ryder Haggard's best efforts. The writing seems uncharacteristically stilted, rendered even more ponderous by the elegant but oh so slow delivery of the narrator. The author seems to be experimenting with the genre and he hasn't quite gotten his putting yet. The characters were not nearly as heroic or captivating as the literary Immortals of "she" "king Solomon's mines" and "Alan Quartermain". I didn't feel like I had wasted my time, but was glad I could accelerate the listening speed. Save your escapism hours for Quartermain, John Carter, Tarzan and Beau Geste.
