Heart of the World

Gelesen von Paul Hansen

(4,352 Sterne; 108 Bewertungen)

H. Rider Haggard wrote Heart of the World in 1895 and it tells of the search for a secret and hidden Mayan civilization living in a long lost city filled with gold and jewels! It is also a love story of a couple willing to give up everything, and I mean EVERYthing, for true love. And it is a melodramatic adventure story of good against evil. I am not sure which side wins... however it is a wonderful read! (Description by Paul Hansen)

I almost wish it was true

(4 Sterne)

I would have given this a 5 star except for the quality of the recording. When it began, I thought I was not going to enjoy this reader but turns out, he is perfect for this story. what a mind, H.Ryder Haggert had. I kept being amazed by the story line, the incredible details, the humanity of characters (except the evil ones) and the description of the ancient Inca City. it felt like he must have seen it. Not a very surprising ending but I kept hoping things would turn out differently.

Fantastic!

I love everything by H Rider Haggard and this book does not disappoint he has got to be the best adventure story writer ever. That's my opinion but man he it writes an incredible story! King Solomon's Mines and The Lost World are my all-time favorites but this is a fantastic listen.

I love to hear a story told, as in the days before radio. It allows the mind to visualize a personal rendition of events. This story like many I have listened to, is read wonderfully. The pace is mesmerizing as one would expect of an Adventure to hidden Mayan treasures.

and I'm using IF somewhat absurdly fantastical tail not one of Haggard's best. The readers prosody is distractingly off and there are some minor technical problems with the reading but overdue all an enjoyable distraction if that's what you're looking for.

oh, whata tale

(5 Sterne)

Few authors make me laugh like Rider Haggard. I cried a lot listening to Heart. But how interesting. The details kept me listening and the suspence was amazing. Mr. Hansen read very well too.

Ok.

I find the reader to be a bit monotone so I lose concentration, though he does try. There are some adventures but I kept losing concentration because of the aforementioned

One of Hagard's best works

(5 Sterne)

The reader's casual and relaxed style made a good story even better! Great job, thanks.

H Rider Haggard is a great story teller. Much for our imaginations all the way through. Thank you.
