I have in my possession all of Wilburs books.In my opinion they are one of the best reads that one can buy,providing you like fast moving adventure stories. All of his works are fiction, but, they do have A lot of historical fact worked in to them.I must therefore give a rating of five for all of his works.

IMHO this is one of Wilbur Smith's better books. Not only does it have a compelling story, but it has a better ending (still too Mills & Boon) than some. Having spent some time in Zim, I learned that this book is VERY well researched. Not just dull descriptions, but brought very much to life. Going on holiday - buy-it!

Format: Paperback
Wilbur Smith no doubt performed mountaneous research for this book. This novel is definitely a must for anyone that follows Southern African history. WS is debatably biased in his review of urban tribal battles that nearly saw the little country thrown into a massive war. It however deserves to be unbanned in Zimbabwe.

I would recommend all of Wilbur Smith's books if you like adventure also once you start his books you just cant put them down I have read all of his books and now I am going over them all again. I think he is the greatest writer of adventure books and you can also learn a lot from his books I love reading about Africa and Egypt and I have learnt a lot about them in fact I asked my African priest about the Sparkville massacre and he amazed that I knew anything about it and we went into his office and we had a long chat about Africa

This book is the culmination of a fantastic story that started with ‘A Falcon Flies’ and went into ‘Men of Men’ and ‘The Angels Weep’, and tells a lot of the history of Rhodesia/Zimbabwe woven into a story of the Ballantyne family. The book is well researched and all the locations are accurately described. I’ve spent time in Zim, and this book conjures up images of places I have visited or stayed, but in a different time. My copies of the book are getting dog-eared from so much reading, so I will probably buy the kindle editions

Wilbur Smith has learnt his skill to the point of it becoming an art. Modern Rhodesia transforms into the chaos of Mugabe's Zimbabwe. Smith explains with accomplished ease how Africa is slipping back into tribal rivalries- Mashona versus Matebele-it is as if the whites, now they are gone, never had any impact on the land at all.

As a page turning adventure story it has few equals.

As all his books (especially the Ballantyne family series) it is a compelling yarn with all the drama of his beloved Africa. The blood-lust. the paternal sexism and family idealism are all there and still attractive, despite their juxtaposition to modern political correctness.
