The People of the Mist

Gelesen von Richard Kilmer

(4,566 Sterne; 190 Bewertungen)

Penniless Leonard Outram attempts to redress the undeserved loss of his family estates and fiancee by seeking his fortune in Africa. In the course of his adventures he and his Zulu companion Otter save a young Portuguese woman, Juanna Rodd, together with her nursemaid Soa, from slavery. Leonard and Juanna are plainly attracted to each other, but prone to bickering, and their romance is impeded by the watchful and jealous Soa. The protagonists seek the legendary People of the Mist, said to possess a fabulous hoard of jewels. Finding them, they immediately become embroiled in the turbulent political affairs of the lost race, which is riven by a power-struggle between the monarch and the priesthood of its giant crocodile god. The heroic Leonard can do little more than react to events. The action climaxes in a hair-raising escape by toboggan (it was a flat stone) down a steep glacier. (Summary by Wikipedia) (16 hr 25 min)

Good reader, book is rather morose

(4 Sterne)

I've listened to many of H Ryder Haggart's stories and enjoyed all of them. This one, however, left me thinking that Mr. Haggart no longer felt optimistic regarding the human race. Yes, he did again show his disgust for the slave traders that did their awful work in Africa and skillfully saw their demise. The main characters were good people and they were not spared an overwhelming amount of pain, hardship and suffering. He wrote well and I listened to the entire story probably because the reader was so good.

AMAZING!!!!

(5 Sterne)

This is the most exciting Adventure with edge of your seat chapters of danger but I don't want to spoil anything for you. there are also laugh out loud moments. Brilliant book read very well by narrator, absolutely it love H Rider Haggard he has got to be the best adventure author.

Quite the Adventure

(4 Sterne)

The rescue from slavery would have been a complete book in itself, but added to this, we get the adventurous travel to the city of the People of the Mist and all that occurs there. Definitely an adventure, with a final plot twist at the end. Very good!

Good story, but long

(4 Sterne)

This is a really good story but it seems to go on forever! Too much of a good thing? The narration is good, precise but melodic - great for getting off to sleep which is one of my key uses of audio books!

this book!!

(5 Sterne)

wow this book had me on the edge trying to figure out what was gonna happen next. so much death and sacrifice to have such a good ending I may have been moved to tears. the reader was amazing, 5 stars for him

Eggscape

(5 Sterne)

100% recommend this story that dose not abruptly end like so many stories. Richard has done another great job! My one word to sum up this book and reading EGGSCAPE!!!

Acceptable recording.

(3 Sterne)

OK neutral reader. Could have been clearer, and easier to follow, if the intonations were read in the right places, with more understanding and empathy for the contents.

(5 Sterne)

give this story a couple of chapters and you will not be able to stop listening. very enjoyable. very well read. wish it were made into a movie.
