This is the first Allan Quartermain book Ive read, and it certainly wont be the last. In fact, I just started reading King Solomons Mines.

This is the story of Allan Quartermains last adventure. He, Sir Henry Curtis, and Commander John Good go in search of a lost city of white people in Africa. There is also Umslopagaas, a Zulu ex-chief/warrior, who might be my favorite character. I hope he shows up in another Allan Quartermain novel. (Curtis and Good are also in King Solomons Mines, and so far, Umslopagaas has been mentioned, but I dont know if hell actually show up.)

I started reading Allan Quatermain stories with King Solomons Mines because they are fantastic, gripping adventures with great characters and vividly described, amazing settings. Dont let the books age hold you back; it is written in a style that feels as current as anything written this year.

The book is a lot of fun. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes a good adventure story.
