Top Customer Reviews

This edition contains all Haggard's novels about She Who Must Be Obeyed - 'She', 'Ayesha: the Return of She', 'She and Allan', and 'Wisdom's Daughter'. There is an interactive table of contents allowing access to the individual novels, and there are few typos and formatting errors.

The first of the four novels is the most famous, an epic tale of a mysterious immortal queen ruling over a land of cannibal savages and awaiting the return of her ancient love. It is a cracking read, with excellent characterisations and a good pace. Sadly, Haggard chose to milk the franchise to death. The sequel, 'Ayesha', is simply a revamp of the elements of the first but shifted to the Himalayas. It becomes tiresome well before the predictable conclusion. In 'She and Allan' he brings in two more of his popular characters, the hunter Allan Quartermain ('King Solomon's Mines') and the Zulu axeman Umslopogaas ('Nada the Lily'). It is written as a prequel, so it skips the eternal romance theme, but brings in a damsel in distress and an allegedly immortal chieftain of a tribe of savages. It holds up better than the second novel, but still is not nearly as good as the first. And the fourth, 'Wisdom's Daughter', is poorest of all. It purports to be Ayesha's own autobiography, and has the advantage of exotic historical settings and figures to draw on. But it is extremely repetitive and dull. Over and over again the lovely Ayesha is molested by naughty masculine rulers of various places, only to win through and destroy them and their people. This is interspersed with Ayesha talking metaphysical gibberish with her mentor, and competing with Princess Amenartas for the love of Kallikrates.

I have no idea quite how I missed these books/this author when I was a young lad but now at 62 years I have discovered them. Thanks to the suggestions sent by Amazon and based on my shopping these books were suggested to me....and boy am I please. I have spent many an evening since reading the works of this author and thoroughly enjoy the style. They are very dated and would not attract young readers (my sons and grandsons) but for us "oldies" they have a flavour which is very attractive and satisfying. I bought the series for my Kindle and it is excellent value - as are all the "compendiums" in these series. I think some would find the pace of the book somewhat slow and the rather long passages of prose rather tiresome. Also, there is a vocabulary which requires a chair side dictionary (the Kindle mainly but not always) as some words are now decidedly obsolete. Even so you will not be disappointed with this book and it will provide you with quite a few hours of decent entertainment. It is "Boys Own" type reading!

I came across 'She' as a teenager and re-read it, with the others, for the first time in many years. Obviously the product of a former time, the writing would now be considered rather non-pc but they are great fantasy stories and I enjoyed my trip down memory lane.
