Exciting book, must read , weird writing,
By A Customer
This review is from: King Solomon's Mines (Penguin Popular Classics) (Paperback)
I am eleven and I found this book an enjoyable read. It was written a long time ago and it was first published in 1885 or so I read. Therefore some of the language is hard for some people who might read it. It has many things that are now illegal. For example there are elephant hunts and killing of giraffes.The ending is a bit dramatic and a bit far fetched but still a good read.

Just fyi, neither elephant hunts nor the killing of giraffes is illegal.

I think that it's great that you took the time to find out about this book and to read it. You obviously appreciated it for what it was, and have written a review which shows more insight into its merits than some of the other reviewers managed-and some of them must be at least twice your age!I was nine when I read this book first and thoroughly enjoyed re-reading it recently. I think it's great that younger people still make the effort to read older works of literature.

Why do people bother putting ages in reviews, it is almost a form of attention seeking, wanting people to praise you.
