Looking for an adventure book and this fit the bill. Lots of fun, the daily lit email format provides a nice cliffhanger effect so that over the last three days I read the final 25 installments (dailylit.com for "I couldn't put it down").

I read this as escape literature -- mind breaks during busy days -- and loved it! It's a classic "pre-Indiana Jones" / "great white hunter" type of adventure -- enjoyable and a great mini-escape.

Old-fashioned but exciting
Generally enjoyable novel which seemed very familiar probably because much of its plot and scenes have probably turned up in many other books and films since this was first published. Not as exciting as I'd hoped but almost a page turner.
