  • She and Allan By H. Rider Haggard I believe it was the old Egyptians a very wise people probably indeed much wiser than we know for in the leisure of their ample centuries they had time to think out things who declared that each individual personality is made up of six or seven different elements although the Bible only allows us three namely body soul and spirit.

      Published in 1921, She and Allan brings together Haggard s two most popular characters Allan Quatermain and Ayesha Allan seeks out Ayesha, through the encouragement of the witch doctor Zikali, in hopes of finding answers about dead loved ones He becomes involved in the rescue attempt of a young Portuguese Scotch woman, as well as a battle between Ayesha s followers and her enemies.I thoroughly enjoyed She, which introduces Ayesha, and am a long standing fan of the Quatermain books I found this o [...]

      If SHE AND ALLAN were my first H Rider Haggard novel, I would have enjoyed it a good deal It s a good book, but almost everything in it is a variation on other stuff Haggard had written The end result is entertaining enough, but feels predictable and rote.The most interesting thing about SHE AND ALLAN is that it pulls together characters from three different series However, my feelings about this are mixed, as I ve never been a big fan of Haggard s SHE novels And, certainly, SHE AND ALLAN is fr [...]

      Haggard combines two of his best creations into a crossover novel I liked it, but not as much as his other novels.The format didn t work as well as I thought it should have, Allan is too incredulous of anything not material and Ayesha is too otherworldly for them to mix together in a way that works as well as they do in their own novels.However, that said, Haggard gets to tell another adventure story that he does so well, he can expand on Ayesha s mercurial character and let Allan do what he doe [...]

      This is the weakest of the four She novels Ayesha, known as She Who Must Be Obeyed first appeared in serial form from 1896 to 1897 in the novel She Along with King Solomon s Mines, which featured Allan Quartermain, She is Haggard s most popular and famous novel So this is a kind of crossover Batman Meets Superman or Godzilla versus King Kong or Alien versus Predator And there are moments of humor in this irresistible force meets immovable object But this left me pretty meh, even as an overall fa [...]

      11 in the Allan Quatermain African adventure sereis Wanting to learn if he can communicate with deceased loved ones, he meets with Zulu witch doctor Zikali who sends Quatermain to a great white sorceress who rules a hidden kingdom far to the north, and charges Allan to take a message to her This is also the first novel in which She or Ayesha appears As usual, there is at least one major battle in which Quatermain fights against overwhelming odds.The story also contains a recurring story line in [...]

      This is book 11 in the Allan Quatarmain series and I believe book 3 in the She series It was a crossover of Haggard s two most popular characters, however this one just didn t have the same kick that the other She books had I liked the Ayesha character, she was a strong female character in a time where strong female characters were in short supply, I d recommend reading the She series in order That way the reader can get to know Ayesha before this one.

    7. Madhura on said:

      Although it unites Haggards s two most popular characters, Allan and Ayesha, the book is predominantly of Allan s adventures 3 stars only because you get to read about Ayesha again otherwise I d rate it 2 because later in the book Allan s skepticism sounds like stupidity to me Looking forward to read the last book in She series Hope to find about Ayesha in it.

    8. Janet Logan on said:

      Not only is this, as noted by others, the weakest of the She novels I have read so far, but truly it was often unpleasant Allan is a man of his time, for certain He is a true to his core misogynist His frequent comments of the weakness and flaws of all women is at best distracting, and at worst disruptive, of what could have been a decent adventure tale.

    9. Rob on said:

      I anticipated this as going to be a drag, but was surprised It s interesting to watch Quatermain try to match wits with Ayesha, to say the least Now I think I ll have to re read She just to see how these two match up.

      Sir Haggard at his descriptive best with two of his most famous characters Allan Quatermain Ayeshawhat else do you need

    11. Jim on said:

      Not one of Haggards best probably answering some public desire to put his most famous characters in one book

    12. Michele on said:

      A fun read, but too little attention on She and too much on Sahib Quatermain and the killing of various things My least favorite of the She series.

    13. Suzette on said:

      An entertaining read about supernatural beings, earthly inhabitants and their journey in Quartermain s life.
