Possibly the best book you will read, 12 July 2004
As it says on the back of the book in anonamous quote marks, "the most amazing book ever written!". I can't really very easily contradict this comment. I am 15 and ignorant to many good English literature but i picked this book up (from amazon) after reading The extrordinary league of gentlemen by Alan Moore. We covered it in our literacy society at school and the briefly talked about Alan Quartermain. So, i decided to have a read afterall it was only a mere £4. And boy do you get your money's worth!!!
The book just keeps you gripped from page to page and is the most exciting book. It IS the most amazing book ever written and there has never been a better adventure book written since except possibly 'SHE'. Has got me obsessed with the Quartermain books!!! BUY IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
