    1. This is one of the best works by H Rider Haggard that I ve read, and I ve read a good number of them This is the tale of how Allan Quatermain, hero of 14 of Haggard s books, including King Solomon s Mines, met his first wife It is set against the time of the Great Trek in the 1830s, and is jammed with action, adventure and romance There are two terrific villains, Dingaan brother of Chaka and a Portuguese who s trying to not only kill our hero, but rob him of his wife in the bargain The book star [...]

    2. reviewstaphorosis 1.5 starsAllan Quatermain, an English teen growing up in what is now South Africa, falls in love with Marie Marais, a Boer neighbour girl Her father is against the marriage, favoring instead his wealthy nephew He and the nephew put one obstacle after another in the lovers way, with tragic consequences.I read H Rider Haggard s King Solomon s Mines when I was very young, and eventually followed it with She and a few others in the She Quatermain saga I remember them as fun, if ove [...]

    3. I really enjoyed the tale and the suspense as you follow the battle of love vs hate and view of human life or lack of respect for life.

    5. 1912 s fan service reminds me back when I was Grade 4 when my mom introduced first fiction Nostalgia Allan 3 3

    6. I don t usually like tales in which I know from the start that things will not end well, so it s not much of a surprise that I didn t approach this book with much enthusiasm However, I ve already gotten the idea that each of Haggard s Alan Quatermain tales builds on those he penned previously which is why my decision not to try to read them in chronological order turned out to be wise , so I felt that I would be making an error not to.The voice I ve been enjoying so much in the other Alan Quater [...]

    7. This being my first sample of H Rider Haggard s writings and his infamous hero, Allan Quatermain, I found it to be pretty great The writing and prose are excellent throughout, and for the most part, the pacing is also very well done Writing a prequel to an already extensive series is a difficult thing, and this could have been fairly disastrous I was happy to see that it was well worth the read.I did get a real sense of the characters and their personalities, and it s quite tragic when looking b [...]

    8. After reading King Solomon s Mines it was interesting to read the story of a young Allan Quatermain and his first love, Marie In some ways the pacing and action in Marie was exciting that King Solomon s Mines I particularly enjoyed the standoff at the Marias home which happens early in the story Overall I really enjoyed this book and I look forward to reading of Quatermain s adventures However I do have one big complaint and that s the handling of the fate of Marie You start the book with the [...]

    9. An untypical outting for Alan Quatermain, as it comes from his early life in Africa, and his meeting and relationship with his first love, Marie What follows contains the usual sort of adventure in these novels, though Alan escapes due to luck than skill, and he s singleminded on being with Marie, and women are not often his focus I was a little disappointed in seeing the tender side of Alan, but that is trait I should have expected from this boy from Britain The ending is telegraphed in the fi [...]

    10. While not in the same vein as Tarzan or many of the rest in this genre, this story was still a great ripping tale The story takes place when Quatermain was very young It s set during the time of the Boer trek from South Africa to Natal You have the requisite heroes and villains, guns and natives, and evil Kings and Europeans.A good introduction to the books to come I can hardly wait to start King Solomon s Mines.

    11. This is Allan Quatermain s tale regarding how he found and married his first wife and the story of that relationship It goes back to 1836 38 a time of unrest in southern Africa with the immigrations of Boers traveling inland, clashes with Zulus and an arch villain who appears throughout the narrative It is also a story of how harmful prejudice and jealousy can be to the relationships between people.

    12. I first read King Solomon s Mines last year It quickly became my favorite book, that is until I read this one It is a heroic tale of man who loved someone so dearly he gave up his life for her It is the first book in chronological order of the Quatermain books Indeed a wonderful read I cannot describe how much I loved it However, at the saddest part I found myself crying along with the little son of George adieu to Allan for now, but forever his stories will remain with me

    13. A great adventure story from a great story teller Written with all of the melodramatic flair of the Victorian era, half the fun of reading this novel is the language It is a powerful commentary on the destructive powers of prejudice and hatred, which permeate the story with devastating effects for the innocent and guilty alike.

    14. This is one of Haggard s best books It breaks with tradition by finding a very young Allan entering into his first true love It is a real page turner even though you can guess the general outcome at the end It opens with a battle scene and is a very fast paced book I ve loved the ALlan Quatermain books most of my life, and this one was just plain good fun.

    15. Wow.OK, if you can put the blatant racism into perspective as a symptom of the time, one that we have hopefully outgrown are hopefully outgrowing in the English speaking world, this was a great adventure story historical novel.

    16. The story of Allan Quatermain s first marriage, his involvement with the Great Boer Trek and clash with the Zulus A moving victorian tale of adventure and personal loss.

    17. It is a powerful commentary on the destructive powers of prejudice and hatred, which permeate the story with devastating effects for the innocent and guilty alike Good read with a tragic end.

    18. Wonderful, if tragic tale Haggard s prose has held up surprisingly well I can t wait to read the rest of his works.
