Book Excerpt:

Well, it is finished, and after all death cannot be so terrible, seeing that every human being is born to undergo it, together with all living things. Whatever else is false, I hold this to be true, that God exists and is more merciful than those who preach Him would have us to believe.' And he ceased exhausted.

Often since then I have thought of his words, and I still think of them now that my own hour is so near. As will be seen Fonseca was a fatalist, a belief which I do not altogether share, holding as I do that within certain limits we are allowed to shape our own characters and destinies. But his last sayings I believe to be true. God is and is merciful, and death is not terrible either in its act or in its consequence.

Presently Fonseca spoke again. 'Why do you lead me to talk of such things? They weary me and I have little time. I was telling of my will. Nephew, l. . . Read More

[5/10] A dissapointment, I'm always on the lookout for titles dealing with pre-Columbian cultures in South America. Montezuma's Daughter hasn't aged very well, or possibly I aged too much. I wonder if re-reading a childhood favorite like Inca Treasure by Karl May would leave the same sense of wasted

A highly engaging adventure with the singular fault of being most unlikely. And, well, verbose. This is a tale of murder, vengeance, war, and love. The reader grows to hate the archvillain, Juan de Garcia, about as much as does the hero, Thomas Wingfield. I have arguably learned more about the Aztec

সময়ের কাজ সময়ে করতে হয়, নয়তো সেটা ফল দেয় না। এই বইটা আরও ত্রিশ বছর আগে পড়া ঠিক ছিল। তাহলে স্যার হ্যাগার্ডের ভালো লাগা কিছু বইয়ের তালিকায় থাকতে পারতো। অনেক দিন ভেবেছি স্যার হ্যাগার্ডের কমপ্লিট ওয়ার্ক্স ধরনের কিছু পেলে কিনে ফেলবো। সেটা কখনো পাইনি। ওটার আর দরকার নেই।

Written between June 5th and September 3rd, 1891, H. Rider Haggard's 16th novel out of an eventual 58, "Montezuma's Daughter," was ultimately published in October 1893. The previous winter, Haggard and his wife Louisa had been in Mexico hunting for treasure, and on February 8th, the author had learn

An absolutely amazing story about a man who lets vengeance consume his life so that he misses out on all the blessings God puts in his path. A truly great book that everyone should read.

Я не читала больше ни одной книги Хаггарда и для меня этот роман - лучший и единственный у него мною прочитанный. Мне кажется, это тот роман, про который просто невозможно сказать, что он неинтересен или скучен, или написан тяжелым языком... Это не про «Дочь Монтесумы». Пожалуй, это тот редкий случа

কেউ কেউ বইটিকে ঐতিহাসিক উপন্যাস বলে থাকেন। আমার মতে এটিকে ঐতিহাসিক না বলে এডভেঞ্চার উপন্যাস বলাই শ্রেয়।
লেখক প্রথমেই গল্পের শেষ পরিণতি বলে দিয়েছেন। আবার অনেক জায়গাতেই শাখা পরিণতি আগেভাগে বলে দিয়েছেন। এক অর্থে লেখক নিজেই তার বইয়ের স্পয়লার দিয়ে দিয়েছেন। ফিকশন পড়ার সময় যদি অনিশ্চয়তা না থাকে

I'm not usually a fan of adventure stories, but this one hooked me in. It has it all: a love story (or two), a quest for revenge, exotic people, riches, high seas adventure, etc. It got a little long, and by the time I was 3/4 through, I was ready to get to the big finish(es), but, overall, I really
