Book Description

The Angels Weep is the third bestselling book in Wilbur Smith's Ballantyne Novels - an epic exploration into the dark past of colonial Africa.



At the dawn of a new century, the pioneers of Rhodesia have staked their claims and stocked their farms in the land they have carved as their own. But in the hills, the Matabele indunas are preparing for the bloody rebellion which will scar the opponents for ever - and etch for them the same tragic legacy for generations to come . . .



'Raw experience, grim realism, history and romance welded with mystery and the bewilderment of life itself' Library Journal



The dramatic story of the Ballantynes concludes in The Leopard Hunts in Darkness.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding 23 Nov. 2000
    Format:Paperback
    This is an outstanding novel, probably the best of the Ballantyne trilogy which first began with A FALCON FLIES followed by MEN OF MEN. When it comes to describing the African way of life in the 19th century, Wilbur Smith simply is the best. Zouga and Ralph set out to explore the land in search of empire and wealth during the settlement of Rhodesia and after the Matabale are defeated but along the way they are involved with the violent fighting that still exists between the native tribes and the overwhelming white government who is destined to run their lives. Page after page the excitement just keeps coming and you just wont want to put the book down.

    4.0 out of 5 stars The Angels Weep 23 May 2009
    Format:Paperback
    The third in the quartet of Wilbur Smith's books about the formation of Rhodesia in the 1860's into more recent 20th century Zimbabwe history. This copy was bought as a replacement for a much loved and much read older book, which literally fell apart. A really good adventure story with lots of interesting history interwoven with the fictional characters.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Another Wilbur Smith triumph 13 Dec. 2014
    By Rual
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Terrific story spanning history of Rhodesia, and including Magabe, and all the treachery and dirty tricks that went on from the Matabele troubles onwards. Like all Wilbur Smith tales you get dragged in to the story and find yourself living and feeling the part. Couldn't put it down. Fabulous.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Third of Four for Wilbur Smith 25 May 2014
    By W mills
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Continuing on from his earlier books about the history of Rhodesia Smith manages to keep the interest going until the fourth in the series.

    It skips from turn of the century Rhodesia to 1977 and Mugabe's war. A more continous history of the development of the country would have been an interesting read. The jump from historical fiction to modern thriller is a difficult one and he has done it OK but it feels like two short books rolled into one.
