Book Description: Now I, Allan Quatermain, come to the weirdest (with one or two exceptions perhaps) of all the experiences which it has amused me to employ my idle hours in recording here in a strange land, for after all England is strange to me. I grow elderly. I have, as I suppose, passed the period of enterprise and adventure and I should be well satisfied with the lot that Fate has given to my unworthy self. To begin with, I am still alive and in health when by all the rules I should have been dead many times over. I suppose I ought to be thankful for that but, before expressing an opinion on the point, I should have to be quite sure whether it is better to be alive or dead. The religious plump for the latter, though I have never observed that the religious are more eager to die than the rest of us poor mortals. For instance, if they are told that their holy hearts are wrong, they spend time and much money in rushing to a place called Nauheim in Germany, to put them right by means of water-drinking, thereby shortening their hours of heavenly bliss and depriving their heirs of a certain amount of cash. The same thing applies to Buxton in my own neighbourhood and gout, especially when it threatens the stomach or the throat. Even archbishops will do these things, to say nothing of such small fry as deans, or stout and prominent lay figures of the Church....

Book Description: Das einfallsreichste und wunderbarste Abenteuer, das Haggard geschaffen hat, beginnt, als Leo und Holly die Botschaft der alten ägyptischen Prinzessin Amenartas entschlüsseln. Auf ihrer mysteriösen Reise entdecken sie Ella, dieses seltsame Wesen, schrecklich und faszinierend, Symbol für ewige Jugend und Beständigkeit in der Zeit. Aber sie ist nicht nur eine Allegorie über die ewige Rückkehr; es ist auch eine melancholische Reflexion über die Härte dieser grausamen Welt, die nicht gerade dazu einlädt, ewig zu sein. "Die Welt", sagt Holly in einem merkwürdigen Hauch von Existentialismus, "hat sich nicht als so weiches Nest erwiesen, dass Sie eingeladen werden, für immer darin zu bleiben."
