So far, I've read far too many of these Allan Quartermain books by Henry Rider Haggard. They're sort of like popcorn. Not super good for you, not super filling, but for some reason, it's hard to stop once you start. Of the ones I've read so far, this was one of my favorites. Fun book. Would make a good movie I think.

It more of a short story rather than a full novel. We know from reading King Solomon's mines that Allan Quartermain had a son and now we meet his mother. The story involves killer baboons, a wise African witch doctor with a very cool name, a crazy baboon lady and the Lady who becomes Allan's second wife. I enjoyed the story and if you enjoy the stories of Allan Quartermain read this one and best of all it is free.

At 1,918 locations, this isn't the longest work. I look for a stirring adventure yarn from HRH. This was more of a love story/tragedy. The woman raised by baboons is odd, but what is interesting is that HRH is digging into the love of one woman for another. I honestly wonder if he knew what story he was telling there.

There is the amusing bit about the old ruins, that must have been made by a lost white race. Rather amusing at this point.

Ok, so the title to the third book in the "Allan Quatermain" series probably says it all: "Allan's Wife". In here, Allan records the unhappy story of his first, and final, love. After the death of his wife, Allan's father moves him to Africa, where he soon becomes the famous Hunter Quatermain. The plot isn't very original, unfortunately. Allan, dying of thirst, is rescued by a beautiful damsel from England living with her father in the wild. Of course, Allan falls in love with the girl, Stella, and eventually marries her. The only thing standing in the way of their happiness is the jealousy of Stella's half-crazed friend Hendrika, who, Tarzan-like, was raised by baboons. The rest you can guess from the title of my review. This was a surprisingly dumb book, and I was surprised to see it from Haggard's pen. In short, I wouldn't blame you if you skipped it. I only gave it three stars because I still enjoy Haggard's style.

I ordered this for a friends kindle. She must have liked it as she is an avid reader and I've not heard otherwise. There are many kindle free editions of books and its nice, in this economy, to have access to reading material that is free. Thanks, Amazon, for this service..
