Vicious Circle (Hector Cross Novels) by Wilbur Smith

1.0 out of 5 stars Wilbur Smith's Worst, 21 Oct 2013
I have been an avid reader of Wilbur Smith and I think I have read all his books. Of late however his books have deteriorated and his writing has become sleasy and aiming for the sensational in terms of sex and horror.
I will not be buying any more in the future and suggest that as he clearly does not need the money he should retire and be remembered for his earlier books.

If you are serious about Scottish History then this book is a must to read. Compiled from many Scottish historians and edited by some very learned gentlemen, one of whom was Matt Strickland who had the pleasure of teaching me at Glasgow.

This book will be the yardstick for others who follow

I have just watched again the entire series as shown on TV yesterday and the day before. As a lover of all types of history the filming and the research involved must have been massive. I was particularly impressed by the commentary of that confirmed Southerner Shelby Foote. I could listen to him for hours and I especially loved his story about his interview with the daughter of General Nathan Bedford and the swinging of the General's sabre around his head.
This is a DVD you can watch again and again and still miss something you had'nt seen before. The two minutes of Lincoln's Gettysburg address was quite wonderful and written by a master.
