If SHE AND ALLAN were my first H. Rider Haggard novel, I would have enjoyed it a good deal more. It's a good book, but almost everything in it is a variation on other stuff Haggard had written. The end result is entertaining enough, but feels predictable and rote.
The most interesting thing about SHE AND ALLAN is that it pulls together characters from three different series. However, my feelings about this are mixed, as I've never been a big fan of Haggard's SHE novels. And, certainly, SHE AND AL
Haggard combines two of his best creations into a crossover novel. I liked it, but not as much as his other novels.
The format didn't work as well as I thought it should have, Allan is too incredulous of anything not material and Ayesha is too otherworldly for them to mix together in a way that works as well as they do in their own novels.
However, that said, Haggard gets to tell another adventure story that he does so well, he can expand on Ayesha's mercurial character and let Allan do what he do

Recommends it for: Ayesha Fans and Completists
This is the weakest of the four She novels. Ayesha, known as She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed first appeared in serial form from 1896 to 1897 in the novel She: Along with King Solomon's Mines, which featured Allan Quartermain, She is Haggard's most popular and famous novel. So this is a kind of crossover. Batman Meets Superman or Godzilla versus King Kong or Alien versus Predator. And there are moments of humor in this irresistible force meets immovable object. But this left me pretty meh, even as an over ...more

Not only is this, as noted by others, the weakest of the She novels I have read so far, but truly it was often unpleasant. Allan is a man of his time, for certain. He is a true to his core misogynist. His frequent comments of the weakness and flaws of all women is at best distracting, and at worst disruptive, of what could have been a decent adventure tale.
a different perspective from She.......
This is book 11 in the Allan Quatarmain series and (I believe) book 3 in the She series. It was a crossover of Haggard's two most popular characters, however this one just didn't have the same kick that the other She books had. I liked the Ayesha character, she was a strong female character in a time where strong female characters were in short supply, I'd recommend reading the She series in order. That way the reader can get to know Ayesha before this one.

I anticipated this as going to be a drag, but was surprised. It's interesting to 'watch' Quatermain try to match wits with Ayesha, to say the least. Now I think I'll have to re-read She just to see how these two match up.

Sir Haggard at his descriptive best with two of his most famous characters Allan Quatermain & Ayesha...what else do you need?
An entertaining read about supernatural beings, earthly inhabitants and their journey in Quartermain's life.
Not one of Haggards best probably answering some public desire to put his most famous characters in one book
One of the three books featuring Allen Quartermain and She.
Haggard never fails to deliver entertainment.
