Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quintessential "white hunter" story Read this after reading League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Entertaining if you read it objectively, keeping in mind the viewpoints of the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from favourite adventure book of all time often labels as a "boys" book, i can tell you as a woman, this has always been my favourite adventure book! the setting is perfection, characters are engaging and sometimes wildly humourous (i always get a laugh out of Good's monocle) and the writing is excellent. a must read for adventure lovers

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boys adventure This book is for boys of all ages and a must read even though it's a little dated and some of the topic like shooting elephants would not be included in books written today.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Classic Adventure First published in 1885, King Solomon's Mines is a classic tale of adventure. Allan Quatermain (featured also in the 2003 film, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen), a famous English hunter in Africa is contracted to find a missing person, and in the process upsets the government of an African nation and discovers King Solomon's legendary diamond mines. While it remains a good read, the book can be a bit dry at times, owing to the style popular at the time it was written. While it seems that Haggard has a great deal of respect for the people and wildlife of Africa, he occasionally makes comments that appear shocking or offensive to modern sensibilities towards race and endangered species and the environment.
