    Somewhere, in a remote region of the Sahara desert, there, still hides a Queen and her servants, taking refuge inside caves. She’s a well-educated beautiful woman, a polyglotyet, for men seeking after her charms, she’s fatal. She is queen Antinea, the sovereign of the “Hoggar”. You’re in the Blad-el-Khouf: the country of the fear. She is the last descendant of Atlantis´ kings lineage; the offspring of Neptune and Clito. It’s written in the book of Benoit that, though sinking, Atlant [...]

    Pierre Benoit (1886-1962) enjoyed enormous popularity during his lifetime and a considerable degree of literary acclaim as well. He was elected to the Académie française in 1931. Queen of Atlantis (L’Atlantide) was the second and probably the most famous of his forty-two novels.He is out of favour these days, his conservative political views being sufficient to make him an unperson in today’s literary world.Queen of Atlantis was slightly controversial at the time of its publication in 1919 [...]

    We have this image of French literature as being intellectual and even ethereal. Well, Pierre Benoît aims to prove you wong with his The Queen of Atlantis, also known as L'Atlantide. Reading him is like reading H. Rider Haggard. In fact, he was accused of plagiarizing Haggard: He got off the hook because he could not read English, and Haggard had not yet been translated into French.Benoit writes about a Kingdom of Atlantis that was not so much sunk into the ocean as arisen from the ocean, where [...]

    Atlantide ensevelie sous le Sahara au lieu d'engloutie. Dirigée par une femme qui collectionne les mâles qui tombent amoureux d'elle.

    Atlantida by Pierre BenoitEven though this is a bit average in a classic; I enjoyed reading it.It reminded me of those old Tarzan movies.What it is though; is more of an example of the old Trope about the beautiful, seductive, feminine character whom the protagonists all fall in love with (sometimes inexplicably).It seems there was some argument that Pierre plagiarized this from H.R. Haggard's SHE.Though it does use a similar template of lost world and has Africa as a setting and the lovely irre [...]

    When I came across this in my list of downloaded Kindle books, I could not remember why I'd downloaded it. When I started reading it, I felt like things were getting pretty Heart of Darkness without the regrets about colonialism on me, which also did not help me to figure out why I'd downloaded it. At one point, though, this story takes a bizarre magic and sci-fi turn that tipped me off as to why I might have had it. That, however, did not make it interesting. Atlantida was the sloggiest French [...]

    I'm told this book shares a lot in common with the more famous "She", but as I have not read that one yet, I'll come back later to comment. (I have "She" and "King Solomon's Mines" in one volume). At any rate, this is a pretty exciting story, but ultimately you long for a hero, and the one hero of the story is killed by the narrator. This is not a spoiler; you are told from the very start about the Captain's death. As to the premise, I like the idea that Atlantis was once the tips of the Ahaggar [...]

    Ah, Pierre Benoît A forgotten French master, who wrote an astonishing number of novels filled with adventure, exotic settings, lethal femmes fatales (whose first names always start with an A), hopeless romantic loves. All those books -who were extremely popular when they were published- are actually very well written, and some of them, like MADEMOISELLE DE LA FERTE, are in fact real masterpieces of great psychological depth. This one -about the myth of Atlantis- was a tremendous hit, inspired c [...]

    Reading is my hobby; I do it because I love it. There is no question that I read many frivolous things, and some deep, thoughtful things. This book was plain tedium. 128 pages in, and we still haven't met the queen who is supposed to be the title character and the motive for the shocking murder in the African desert. Call me a fool for instant gratification, but I just plain can't take it anymore. Karl Marx' Communist Manifesto was more entertaining and engaging than this literary Bataan Death M [...]

    Lu vers 11/13 ans cette histoire m’avait fait une forte impression. Exotisme et mystère, amour et mort, ce court roman, furtif comme un mirage en plein désert, se lit d’une traite. Je ne me souvenais pas de sa briéveté, et c’est le seul point qui me déçoit à la relecture, je l’aurais voulu plus long. Mais quelle joie de le relire !

    This was an interesting take on the lost city of Atlantis by a French author. It was interesting to read the various Sahara/North Africa geographic references circa 1920. Recommend to anyone interested in reading early adventure/science fiction. This is an Ace Science Fiction Classic, series F, F-281.

    On the pale water of the little pool, motionless and fixed like a silver nail, a star had just been born.Pierre Benoit

    diciamo che come romanzo avrebbe pure i suoi perché, purtroppo è scritto davvero male.La trama si svolge in maniera troppo superficiale.Un vero peccato: l'idea è bellissima.
