    I sincerely recommend this book that useless degenerate sack of shit that sits in the White House today, indeed, that orange buffoon that is playing at presidency would most likely enjoy this considering his latest move as leader of the U.S.A For those that don t know, he is currently contemplating a reversal of the importations of hunting trophies into America ultimately, encouraging big game hunting in Africa Americans will be able to go overseas, murder an elephant and come back with its tusk [...]

    I always fascinated treasure hunt books and this book did really surpassed my expectations A real adventure it was Its a story of survival, revenge, making of a king, greatest treasure hunt, and friendship.I was hooked from the start and the story just got riveting with every page This book reminded me of many adventure movies, both from Hollywood and Bollywood it is the nickname for the Hindi language film industry, based in Mumbai, India And now I can guess from where those movies have got th [...]

    This book is the response to a five shilling dare from Haggard s brother that he couldn t write a book half as good as Treasure Island Haggard was enormously popular in his time he and Robert Louis Stevenson were the two dominant adventure writersIt s enormously imaginative Alan Quatermain is a brilliant character, a wiry and wily old Ulysses who describes himself as a coward There s a scene near the end involving artificial stalagmites that s exhilaratingly evocative and creative and creepy And [...]

    2017 Summer Lovin Reading List King Solomon s Mines is very much a product of its Victorian, colonial times Don t go into this book expecting anything else Allan Quartermain is an unlikely protagonist, an elephant hunter, something that would get him publically shamed on the internet nowadays This is very much an adventure tale, set in deepest, darkest Africa White men have no doubt that they are at the very tippy top of the social hierarchy and have no compunctions about expressing that belief [...]

    Every so often I get the feeling that a good old timey adventure book would be a good thing to read This is hopefully the last time I think this as the results are always dire Conan Doyle s The Lost World was one hell of a struggle Chesterton s The Man Who Was Thursday was dreadful However, Rider Haggard s King Solomon s Mines takes the prize for most unreadable load of old toss ever 3 Englishmen ponce into Africa on a treasure hunt They cross romantic terrain, shoot majestic animals, patronise [...]

    Free download available at Project Gutenberg.Opening lines It is a curious thing that at my age fifty five last birthday I should find myself taking up a pen to try to write a history.Quotations I asked a page or two back, what is a gentleman I ll answer the question now A Royal Naval officer is, in a general sort of way, though of course there may be a black sheep among them here and there.For to my mind, however beautiful a view may be, it requires the presence of man to make it complete, but [...]

    Okay, good adventure story that has been around for a long time it s been made into several movies none of which actually resemble the book all that much For one thing, there s no heroine all There s only two semi main female characters in the entire book.First, there are things in this book that will offend some readers They are unintentional the book is a product of it s time, the late 1800s The racial attitudes here are from that era and anyone picking up the book should be aware of that goin [...]

    Typically, I m a fan of Victorian adventure and mystery novels In fact, I ve been saving H Rider Haggard s masterpiece, King Solomon s Mines, for almost two years because I thought I would enjoy it so much Sadly, I was much deceived in the character of Haggard s great adventure novel The story goes that Haggard read Treasure Island which I incidentally very much enjoyed , decided that he could easily write something better and made a bet to that effect And with the idea of besting Robert Louis S [...]

    When reading and then reviewing a novel written in the 1880s, one has to sort of teleport back a century or so to be fair Reading an artifact vs a contemporary work of historical fiction requires an entirely different barometer In many instances, the reader has to put aside the shock of sexism and xenophobia in order to jump into the tale Occasionally, the old styled language and pace is painful I remember once being iced in at the tiny Tupelo, Mississippi airport for seven hours There was no co [...]

    The original Indiana Jones3 September 2013 I remember watching a movie based on this book starring Richard Chamberlain I actually quite enjoyed the film, though one of the major differences that I discovered between the film and the book is the inclusion of a beautiful white female I guess that is what one really has to expect from Hollywood, particularly since there have been a lot of Hollywood movies that have been based on books of old and they have thrown in a girl because, well, a Hollywood [...]

  16. Yasiru (reviews will soon be removed and linked to blog) says:
    Perhaps my earliest enjoyable memory of reading at first in translation The exotic, other worldly descriptions here of places and people both, were utterly entrancing, and the presence of the map and the key it presented for the plot s progression kept my young self fascinated and not because there were mountains on it called Sheba s Breasts at least I hope not there s some Freudian imagery now that I think about it It s my feeling sometimes that I ve come to overuse the term mythic for being to [...]

    One of the works that helped inspire Indiana Jones, the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and lord knows what all else, King Solomon s Mines may not be a staggering work of fiction, but it nonetheless shaped a lot of literature and films in the decades to come.With that in mind I embarked on Allan Quatermain s journey to the titular mines, although they feature primarily at the end of the journey.In fact, all together I d have to say the experience was a bit episodic first there s the almost de [...]


  18. Checkman says:
    The novel that started the Lost World genre It s from this book that eventually Indiana Jones evolved not to mention all the other numerous fictional adventurers The genre is mostly moribund in 2016 a victim of the 21st century But the books and movies are still out there and King Solomon s Mines was the one that started it Well what can one say about a novel from the late Victorian era The writing, characterizations, plot devices and ideas are very different from what we expect from an adventur [...]

  19. Chloe says:
    I was really torn about how to rate this book On the one hand, it was a fun and thrilling adventure tale, the likes of which have been setting fire to the minds of young children with visions of exotic and far flung locales for centuries I can well imagine the delight with which this ripping yarn was received by the readers of the 1880s On the other hand, there is just so much omnipresent racism throughout the entire story that I found it endlessly distracting and offputting.King Solomon s Mines [...]

    If your favourite genre is Action and Adventure , your all time favourite book is Stevenson s Treasure Island , you swear by Indiana Jones and Temple Run finds its icon in your mobile screen, this is THE book for you You will find everything that a good adventure story should have a valiant group of people with strong moral and determination to indulge in all kinds of hunts treasure, wild animals, witch , etc, ancient marauding tribal folks, tribal sacrifices, tribal attack, tribal war, some tr [...]

    This is a 3.5 star for me, the middle portion really dragged on quite a bit but besides that I really enjoyed this novel.

    In the late nineteenth century, Alan Quatermain is a big game hunter in Africa He is approached by two men, Good, a sailor without a job, and Henry Curtis Curtis is seeking his brother, who went searching for a treasure which Quatermain has a crude map to, and the three of them set out seeking the brother and the treasure This entails crossing an expanse of desert considered impossible to cross, and then mountains, also impossible They set out with three African servants, determined to find both [...]
