The Wizard

Henry Rider Haggard

Book Overview: 

Described by the author, best known for his King Solomon's Mines, as "a tale of victorious faith," this story begins on a Sunday afternoon in an English church. Most of the book, though, is set in Africa, and the adventure story is as engaging as any of Haggard's African tales. What makes this one different is the religious question: What has happened to miracles in the church? Is there any power left in Jesus' promise, "Whoso that believeth in me, the works that I do he shall do also, and whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do"?

Book Excerpt: 
. . .all dressed in their different uniforms and bearing shields to match, not one of which was less than 2500 strong. At this moment the regiments were massed in deep lines, each battalion by itself, on either side of the broad roadway that ran straight up the kraal to where the king, his sons, his advisers and guards, together with the company of wizards, were placed in front of the royal house.

There they stood in absolute silence, like tens of thousands of bronze statues, and Owen perceived that either they were resting or that they were gathered thus to receive him. That the latter was the case soon became evident, for as he appeared, a white spot at the foot of the slope, countless heads turned and myriads of eyes fastened themselves upon him. For an instant he was dismayed; there was something terrifying in this numberless multitude of warriors, and the thought of the task that he had undertaken crushed his spirit. Then he remembered, and shaking off his fear. . . Read More

Whether your looking for a thought provoking adventure concerning the nature of miracles and the supernatural or simply an entertaining story about pre-colonial Africa, The Wizard will meet and exceed your expectations. Truly a rare book that could be enjoyed by both adults and children alike while

যুদ্ধটা অন্ধকার আফ্রিকার অগ্নিসন্তান উপজাতির কালো জাদুকরের সাথে ইশ্বরের আলোয় আলোকিত এক খ্রিস্টান ধর্ম যাজকের। যিনি এই ভয়ংকর উপজাতির মাঝে ধর্ম প্রচার করতে গিয়ে সম্মুখীন হন ভয়ংকর সব বিপদের। তার প্রধান বাধা উপজাতির প্রধান জাদুকর। কে জিতবে এই যুদ্ধে? ধর্ম নাকি শয়তান?

This was certainly an interesting read with a slow beginning. However, the characters names were confusing which made it really hard to keep track of all the characters. Perhaps, this is due to listening to an audiobook version. I would give this book 3.5 stars.

One other thing I didn't like that muc

Пришло время разрушить прежде высказанное суждение. Хаггард всё-таки написал произведение про миссионера, отправившегося вглубь Африки для распространения веры в божественный промысел. Тому священнику предстояло выйти на племя огнепоклонников, дабы доказать силу своего Бога над силами стихии язычник

Great little short novel.

হ্যাগার্ড এর অন্য বইগুলো থেকে একটু ভিন্ন এই বইটা। ফিনিশিং টা মনে আরো একটু গভীর হলে ভালো হতো

সেবার অনুবাদ তাই বরাবর এর মত ভালো ছিল
হ্যাপি রিডিং :)

"The Wizard," H. Rider Haggard's 21st novel out of an eventual 58, was initially released as a serial in a publication called "The African Review" and then in its complete form in the October 29, 1896 "Arrowsmith's Christmas Annual for Boys." It was the third of four African novels that Haggard wrot

হোকোসার চরিত্রটা আধ্যাত্মিকতায় একটা সময় টমাস ওয়েনকেও যেন ছাড়িয়ে গেছে

আর অসাধারণ অনুবাদ প্রতিভায় অভিজ্ঞ হলাম :)

বইটা সুন্দর, গতানুগতিক না। আমার সমস্যা এক জায়গাতেই, কেন জানি না আমার ধর্মের আদিম রূপটাকে ভালো লাগে, এর পরিবর্তন করাটা ভালো লাগেনা...
বইটার অনুবাদ অনবদ্য! শেষের পরিণতিটা কেমন যেন হয়েছে, ঠিক আশানুরূপ হয়নি।

অনেকদিন পর একটা সুখপাঠ্য অনুবাদ পড়লাম।
