5.0 out of 5 stars Wilbur Smith - may he live forever!, 4 Jun. 2003
This review is from: Blue Horizon (Hardcover)
From the moment I purchased this signed copy of Blue Horizon, I couldn't wait to get into this book.
Wilbur Smith delivers again with this brilliant tale of adventure in Southern Africa. Once more, the Courtneys are the central characters - I found the family tree available at Smith's web site a valuable reminder of who everybody was before starting to read this book.
I have read all Smith's books and for me he can do no wrong. His descriptions of all the actions are gripping and he always takes pleasure in describing the death throes of some characters. Some descriptions of bodily functions are not as gripping!!!!
I always find that Smith's books seem to finish up too quickly and also leave the reader wanting more. There's another Courtney book here for sure.
Smith's love of Africa shines through as always, yet he manages to find new strong characters for each story. This is a must for all Wilbur Smith fans. For those new to Smith, I would recommend reading other Courtney books to get maximum enjoyment out of this one.
