This great African adventure novel is an enduring favorite among those who love excitement and romance. It is filled with qualities close to the human heart: the spirit of adventure and discovery, the desire for immortality, primal terror, and the search for the primitive. Few knew the Dark Continent as Haggard did; his experience of savage life and wild lands lends a visceral credibility that makes us believe the impossible. Yet beyond all this lies a feeling for the supernatural. Adventure alone was not enough for Haggard: "The thing must have a heart."
What an audiobook!
This classical story of Allan Quatermain's adventure through unexplored Africa is just a splendid, and the narrator, Mr. Rudnicki, did a wonderful work filling the audio with life and excitement. If you want to get lost for 8 and a half hour in a brilliant classic adventure, then this is what you need.
I have to admit that my workday has never gone by so quickly, more than 8 hours and I didn't notice a thing. Huzzah for good audiobooks!
