King Solomon's Mines" is a popular novel by the Victorian adventure writer H. The original flavour of this classic has been carefully retained in this abridged version. It is the first English adventure novel set in Africa, and is considered to be the genesis of the Lost World literary genre.

Librivox recording of King Solomon's Mines by H. This is a classic take and the reader does a great job. He sounds like Billy Bob Thorton! I am really starting to appreciate the internet archive. Read by John Nicholson. Haggard wrote over 50 books, among which were 14 novels starring Allan Quatermain.

In the 1880's in southern Africa, Allan Quatermain, a hunter and guide, joins forces with a sea captain and an English nobleman to find the latter's missing brother, who disappeared while searching for King Solomon's legendary lost diamond mines.

This is a review of the unabridged audio of "King Solomon's Mines" by H. Rider Haggard; narrated by John Richmond.

I grew up on the movie so it was quit a shocker to read the book. As stated in the beginning there are no petticoated women in this book. It is a men's adventure written by a man for men. You can not miss the hand of H. Rider Haggard as he has a unique sense of humor that pops up at the strangest times. And as with written stories this one is much more intricate than the movie adaptations. You will find many assumptions of the time such as any complex construction must have been built by white people and natives on their own may turn savage.

The story is told first person by Allan Quartermain. Nevil is off to make his fortune by finding King Solomon's lost diamond mines. Allan sends him a map to help. This is the last anyone heard from Nevil. Turns out that Nevil is really the estranged brother of Henry Curtis. Sir Henry Curtis now wants to make amends and he with his friend Captain John Good, bribe Allan Quartermain to take them across an endless desert and trough impassible mountains to an adventure that will hold you to the very end. Along with them is their self imposed helper Umbopa who carries a secret of his own.

An added plus is narration by John Richmond; He brings the characters to life and adds to the mystique that this story has been passed down.
