"Prester John is a splendid story, not merely compact with thrilling scenes, but distinguished by a fine literary flavour, due partly to the author's style and partly to his ability to describe men who are not mere automatons. Davie Crawfurd, Laputa, Wardlaw, an Aberdeen schoolmaster; Henriques, a dirty Portuguese scoundrel, and others are men of flesh and blood as living and real as the people one meets every day in the street, and a great deal more interesting."--Scotsman.
