"Finished" comprises the third book in H. Rider Haggard's so-called Zulu trilogy, the first two novels being "Marie" and "Child of Storm." This is a magnificent set of books that deals with the downfall of the Zulu people, as personally witnessed by Allan Quatermain, the hero of 14 of Haggard's novels, including "King Solomon's Mines." "Finished" has all the elements that Haggard's fans have come to expect from him: a great and fast-moving story, scenes of big-game hunting, interesting and amusi ...more

This is the best if the Alan Quartermain books, at least that I have read to date. it is the third book of the story, but can be read as a stand alone story.

The story, though set in the conflicts if the Brit ...more

Stock stuff from HR Haggard but enjoyable none the less. Allan walks through an historic battle, reveal some of the less pleasant aspects of colonial African history and tries to resist the path of mysticism. The highlight for me was getting to know Zikali a little better, following outline encounters in previous books, and hoping that Allan's growing familiarity with the 'spirit world' will bring some interesting future developments in his career...
Not as good as King Solomon's Mines. But what is?
