Listen What is life It is a feather it is the seed of the grass blown hither and thither sometimes multiplying itself and dying in the act sometimes carried away into the heavens But if that seed be good and heavy it may perchance travel a little way on the road it wills It is well to try and journey one s road and to fight with the air Man must die At the worst he can but die a little sooner According to the blurb this is the first novel written in English taking place in Africa Another and a better known fact is that this is the first Lost World novel and H Rider Haggard was the father of the trope The book is told in first person by Allan uatermain In the beginning of the story he is getting old but still doing his dangerous business of elephant hunting in South Africa One day two English gentlemen approached him Their names were Sir Henry Curtis and Captain Good The former s brother was lost while trying to find legendary diamond mines of King Solomon yes THAT Solomon from the Old Testament They wanted to ask Allan to join them in their search considering his experience and survival skills It turned out Allan knew something about this business so after lots of hesitations and pondering he decided to accept the offer A dangerous adventure followed culminating in our party ending up in a lost world No dinosaurs this time though sorry Now that I finished the book and had some time to think about it I realized it has great descriptions of South African landscapes There were plenty of them but they were short enough not to become boring I have never been even close to that place but I am now convinced it is gorgeous In case I have not made this clear before the book is old fashioned adventure This means people that love the genre will love it and people trying to look at it from the modern point of view will hate it I belong to the first category so my vote is Yea I found it curious that in the books written at around this time any warm blooded male upon seeing an elephant or better yet the whole herd would immediately grab a high caliber gun and start shooting It seems we became kind toward other animals since then I also admit that there are some Imperialistic undertones present and no wonder considering the time the story was written was the height of the power of British Empire What I did not find was blatant racism that reviewers are uick to point out Right in the beginning of the tale Allan said that there are black people that are real gentlemen and there are while people that are not In other words he was an eual opportunity guy If you are still not convinced read the chapter The Last Stand of Grays and try to find anything racist in the noble stand of the black army In any way my rating is 4 stars and I stand by it

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 and insult black people before leaving with a few pocketfuls of giant diamonds back to Blighty What ho Sounds a bit of a lark what It s not First off Haggard has his hero uatermain say in the first chapter that they went to Africa did this did that and made it back home with the treasure Oh great now I m really on the edge of my seat Now when uatermain and chums are in danger and the chapter ends on a cliffhanger by Victorian standards I ll know that they make it out because this was explained in the first chapter Also Haggard has the annoying habit of describing every single meaningless detail in a scene So when they cross the desert you have endless descriptions of wind and how thirsty everyone is and how if they don t make it they ll die and the characters start whinging and don t stop and will they make it Look an oasis we re saved No tension whatsoever anyway we all know they make it BECAUSE THEY SAY SO AT THE START All this needless exposition and attempts at drama are useless if we know the characters make it The most offending attempt at literature in this amazingly labelled classic is the way Haggard deals with Africans They re all noble savages who for some reason speak like medieval dukes Thou hast ye sayest not hark etc all make regular appearances in their speech but does he honestly think Africans speak like that The Englishmen patronise the Africans like pets and Haggard has the Africans run about like gormless children either behaving nobly ie standing around bored saying nothing or like coked up teens with a hormone imbalance ie screaming tearing hair killing people randomly No attempt at characterisation is made and none of the characters seem at all real In fact they all sound remarkably the same like a middle class educated Englishman This is the most tedious novel I ve ever read it actually made me angry while I was reading Haggard can t seem to accept the reader has the capacity to fill in the gaps For example rather than say they went to the ridge and sat down he has to say they gathered up their things items are listed and digressed and after several parting words list numerous mundane words hastened up the path description of path and weather while we wondered about list everything thats happened thus far and upon reaching the ridge list various mundane observations the characters have made while walking we sat down and gazed at the view list needless description of mountain range It s EXHAUSTING I hurled the book away from me every time I sat it down about every 3 chapters and am amazed at my tolerance for poor writing How is this a classic It s not at all on the level of Great Expectations or The Picture of Dorian Gray or numerous other examples There s no profundity no great story no great writing Haggard is a very minor writer and his contribution to literature is very small if at all recognisable I am amazed this is listed as a classic when it is the 1880s version of a Lee Child novel Give this a wide book berth it s appalling

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 their inspiration Unlike movies which always have some love story interwoven in the script there is but a very minor love story which ends uite differently and abruptly and I kinda liked it Even though many subplots were uite predictable I was never left disappointed rather it was a very interesting story filled with thrill and suspense and I was always eager and excited to find what s going to happen next which culminates with a happy endingHighly recommended
