Very Profound and Rich

(4 stars)

From the narrator Laineyben, who brings to life the reading by the very extraordanary gift of language skills and historical expertice! Then of course the beautifully written adventures of Allen Quartaimain! The Ivory Child takes you on a very vivid encounter of the challenges of the adventure of Allan and his comrades into the dangers of rivers, trible fudalism, and the attempted rescue of The White Child's Princess. Not before battles of primitive and dark encounters of extrordanary large god- snake for good against the giant elephant god of evil! A great adventure well written, so geographicaly and historically beleavable as truth itself! An adventure you cannot aford to miss.

This was an excellent book read by the best narrator, the best way to enjoy Haggard.

The narrator was really great and brought the book to life.

Ivory Child

(5 stars)

A great adventure by one of the best action writers. Haggard was head and shoulders above most of his contemporaries and, indeed, almost all modern authors of this genre. Ethnic stereotypes abound, of course. I found that sibilance made this a better listen in the car than on headphones. The mysteriously named laineyben provides an atmospheric and excellently paced reading. Many thanks! TheBookworm (Manchester, UK)

(3 stars)

the reader did a good job, although a poor attempt at a Xhosa accent. it is a well paced eventful story. worth listening to or reading.

(4 stars)

well read, story of typical Allan Quartermain book. Fightings against great odds and heroic honor. Something admired and valued in the book and greatly needed in our culture
