A rollercoaster from first page to last,
By A Customer
This review is from: When the Lion Feeds (Paperback)
The book that hooked me on Wilbur Smith as well. Set in mid to late 19th Century South Africa, Smith's vivid descriptions of climate, country and people (both black and white) build a picture in the mind's eye that are as real as they are enduring. Many years after first reading it I can still pick it up, open it at any page and read contentedly for several hours. The sequel, The Sound of Thunder, is equally compelling.
