Colonel Quaritch, V.C.: A Tale of Country Life

Gelesen von Esther

(4,509 Sterne; 54 Bewertungen)

This is not your typical H. Rider Haggard adventure book yet it is full of mystery and intrigue including a coerced marriage, bigotry, adultery, murder and a buried treasure!

This is the tale of an ancient family’s struggles to survive, one woman’s selflessness and another’s evil schemes; Two Gentlemen, two scoundrels and one very underestimated, loyal servant.

Listen as the tale unfolds and guess where the treasure is hidden that can save them all! Summary by Esther. (12 hr 9 min)

BRAVO

(5 Sterne)

It was difficult to believe this was a Haggard book sincr had no Ayesha, no Allan, and no Africa. Not every author can switch gears so completely and still produce such a gem. It compares favorably with Wilkie Collins without being so long-winded. The narration was excellent.

A sweet story

(5 Sterne)

I really enjoyed this story. I was rooting for Colonel Quaritch through the story, he is a very loveable guy. The narration was pretty good too if I remember. Good story worth listening to.

what a fantastic Adventure romance treasure hunt story!
