A runaway bestseller on its publication in 1887, H. Rider Haggard’s She is a Victorian thrill ride of a novel, featuring a lost African kingdom ruled by a mysterious, implacable queen; ferocious wildlife and yawning abysses; and an eerie love story that spans two thousand years. She has bewitched readers from Freud and Jung to C. S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien; in her Introduction to this Modern Library Paperback Classic—which includes period illustrations by Maurice Greiffenhagen and Charles H. M. Kerr—Margaret Atwood asserts that the awe-inspiring Ayesha, “She-who-must-be-obeyed,” is “a permanent feature of the human imagination.”

I red this book when by son was a baby he is now 37. I saw the movie. I have red all of H Ryder Haggards books. Unfortunately they are no longer available for my grandchildren. I recommend this book for anyone, young or older. Haggard was really ahead of his time (better than Jules Vernes)
This book is a fun easy read; yet it has enough philosophical dialogue to get you thinking and be intriguing. The author's use of imagery is wonderfully crisp and clear- it never gets too wordy to enjoy. Haggard doesn't lose himself in the details but gives just enough to leave a lasting impression of certain scenes in the novel. All in all, a fun read to escape into.
