Book Description

Now Mrs. Damer was soft-hearted, and also somewhat old-fashioned. She did not conceive any violent affection for Miss Dawkins, but she told her daughter that "the single lady by herself was a very nice young woman, and that it was a thousand pities she should have to go about so much alone like."

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Funny short read! 7 août 2014

This was a funny and enjoyable short story! I read the entire thing in 2 approximately 30-minute sittings.
If you've ever been in a group where everybody found one person annoying -- or --
If you've ever traveled to a 3rd world country and been accosted by a mob of locals indefatigably begging for money or demanding to be your unnecessary "tour guide" --
well then, you will probably find this quite humorous! I chuckled my way throughout.
I was cheering for the titled "heroine" as she kept up with the men and proclaimed there was no reason why she should be fatigued or couldn't go see whatever they could see. Of course it's a little sad that females used to be looked down for this, but that's history.

This short story tells of a Cairo and Pyramids that no longer exist. The genteel Damers, the seemingly radical American, the relentless Arabs...the characters are quite comical. And at the center of it all--the single lady traveling by herself. Everyone knows someone like her, and we applaud her rejection! An enjoyable look at the past and an easy read.

A short story about a group of Victorian tourists visiting the Pyramids. Miss Dawkins, the unprotected female, is very modern in her manner and outlook and we can see through her how Victorians might have reacted to modern people. It's almost like time travel.

This entertaining short story of 31 pages in print or 431 locations on a Kindle tells the story of Miss Dawkins, who is travelling throught Egypt. She is the 'unprotected female' from the title because she is travelling on her own. She is not not alone most of the time, she joins other travellers. In this story she joins a British family, Mr. and Mrs. Damer and their three children, the Frenchman Mr. Delabordeau and the American Mr. Jefferson Ingram. As they travel along the reader starts to wonder whether the unprotected female needs protecting or whether her fellow travellers need to be protected from her.

This story has some hilarious scenes that everyone who has ever travelled to exotic destinations will recognise: the haggling over prizes, the tips, the uncomfortable journeys and the fellow-travellers who really should have stayed at home, where they have all the comforts they so long for during this trip. This is an entertaining story that can be read well within an hour. I did enjoy reading it. The character of Mrs. Dawkins is interesting and, as I have already said, there are some really funny bits in it.

Anthony Trollope (1815-1882) was one of the most important writers of Great Brittain in the Victorian Age. This story was first published in Cassell's Illustrated Family Paper on the 6th of October 1860. This Kindle version is the 1864 Chapman & Hall "Tales of all Countries" edition.

As a sample I copy a few lines from location 45 below:

(About Miss Dawkins:)...she had no idea of being prevented from seeing anything
she wished to see because she had neither father, nor husband, nor
brother available for the purpose of escort. She was a human creature,
with arms and legs, she said; and she intended to use them. And this
was all very well; but nevertheless she had a strong inclination to use
the arms and legs of other people when she could make them serviceable.

It had its moments, but how unsatisfying was the ending. Much too short. Trollope must have dashed it off while sitting under an umbrella at the seaside.
