She - H. Rider Haggard - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of She:

Leo's African meeting with the White Queen.

My favorite H. Rider Haggard quote from the book:

"The unknown is generally taken to be terrible, not, as the proverb would infer, from the inherent superstition of man, but because it so often terrible."

Questions to ponder while reading She:

Would you open the mysterious package?

Have you ever contemplated dating anyone significantly older than yourself?

My review of the book:

Old-time action and adventure.

Victorian-style drama and dialogue.

*Note* the book contains the bigoted attitude of 19th century England. There are serious racial issues.
