Read full description of the books Il popolo d'oro:This is very much in the tradition of Rider Haggard's 'She'. Adventurers find a lost city with hidden treasures and immortal overlords. There's a lot of apparent magic explained away as advanced, ancient science, a romantic drama underpinned by reincarnation and lots of running around brawling and battling in a variety of dramatic settings.
This book is greatly beloved in some genre circles but I found it rather padded and lacking in surface detail compared to Haggard, and not up to the standards of an adventure writer like John Buchan, plying his trade across the pond at around the same time this story was first serialised in Weird Tales.
It's definitely a beguiling dose of escapism to while away the time, but Williamson's habit of dilating on his character's not especially complex thoughts makes the narrative a drag at times as does the occasional irruption of recapitulation that could have been excised. Also the hero is just plain dumb at times, engaging in Darwin Award-worthy acts like pausing to light a cigarette when trapped in a tomb with a limited air supply.
