A good old classic at an even better price....free! You can't go wrong. Hard to find stories like this anymore. Enjoy.
Very good climactic book
From Nicky lorna
I loved this book. I wasn't sure what to expect as books from the earlier days tend to bore me, but it was full of adventure and I have no complaints about it. Well worth the read!

Adventure, Romance, Action, Intrigue.
Novels from the late 18th century, to the early 19th century have always fascinated me. The style if writing, is almost rhythmic in it's flow. These novels, remind me of a time, when the English language was actually used. People wrote, as they spoke and I fear that this eloquence is lost in many 21st century novels. When I read novels like THE LOST WORLD or THE ISLAND OF DR.MOREAU, I realize that we, as modern readers and writers, have evolved, yet have devolved linguistically. I would like to see a writer capture the romance of these novels, with vistas of Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Somalia and other dangerous and exotic locals, as the backdrop for new adventures. In the immortal words of professor Challenger "vestigia nulla retrorsum. Never look rearwards, but always to our glorious goal."
