    "What a difference a hundred years makes"
    What disappointed you about Ayesha?

    The writing style of the Victorian years vs. today makes it tough to keep interested in. I think if the same story was updated by an exciting type author that would be great.


    What could H. Rider Haggard have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    He did a good job with the material he had to work with


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Because of the English Victorian writing it seems like the reader is a bit ahead of the start waiting for it to catch up. The writing takes so long to get to the point.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It iS exciting to realize that this author and authors like him built the English empire and gave boys the inspiration to go to foreign lands of the empire.
