This is a fascinating book-- it was wildly popular when it was first published in the 1880's and was a huge influence on many authors; however, it has been mostly forgotten in the modern day. Adventure in deepest, darkest Africa, a two-thousand year-old love story, lost civilizations-- this book has it all (including some racial stereotypes which have NOT aged well). In the hand of a director like Peter Jackson, this book would make an awesome movie-- it's full of amazing visuals.

I'd definitely recommend to anyone who likes non-stop adventure tales, Victoriana, and/or proto-feminist writing.
