One of the best-selling books of all time, with over 100 million copies sold in 44 different languages. The novel was extraordinarily popular upon its release and has never been out of print.
Follow the journey of Horace Holly and his ward, Leo Vincey, to a lost kingdom in the African interior. There they encounter a primitive race of natives and a mysterious white queen named Ayesha who reigns as the all-powerful "She", or "She-who-must-be-obeyed". In this work, Rider Haggard developed the conventions of the Lost World subgenre, which many later authors emulated.
This is the blueprint for the Indiana Jones series.

Worst Narration Ever
I would not buy another book narrated by Alan Munro - his poor pacing and choppy performance is exceeded only by his abysmal pronunciation. He takes a wonderful story and makes it exceedingly painful to listen to.
The story itself is classic in every sense of the word. It is a foundational work in the genre. It is absolutely on the same level as John Carter of Mars and Tarzan.
- D. Brumbaugh
Enjoyable book, difficult reader
