I am not a big reader but Retribution kept me turning the pages and right in the mix of the action.
Whilst it is acknowledged that the book is fiction, a lot of the 'facts' are genuine but have not been well researched. For instance it refers to Sithole and Mugabe being the leaders of ZANLA in the late 1960's where in fact Mugabe was head of ZANU and only headed ZANLA up in 1979 when Tongogara died who led ZANLA from 1973. Prior to that Chitepo was ZANLA head.
Some of the translations are very suspect to, perhaps the Aussie sun has dulled the authors memories.
The word 'maningi' means plenty or many and is not the word for a white person which actually is 'mukiwa' or possibly 'murungu'.
'Tootsie' as far as I'm aware is the name of a Dustin Hoffman film where Hoffman disguises himself as a women.
The word that the author was looking for meaning a bad person or thug or similar is: 'tsotsi' (pronounced sort-see).
For anyone from that neck of the woods and that era the twisted facts and errors are an annoyance.
Whilst the chapters are mostly dated, the way the story jumps around is semi confusing. So many characters, each with their own chapters, I think even had the author forgetting where he was? For instance: the chapter where Richard is in Libreville to get the name of the spy - one is left hanging and the subject is no longer broached! Did they get the spy?
The same with the Rob & Monique romance - was it or wasn't it? They both thought about it but that is as far as it went.
It did however bring back memories of my former home which the British Labour government were hell bent on destroying with absolutely no thoughts about their loyal white subjects who were left there to rot.Read more ›

It's very well presented considering it's probably fact created around fiction. A good read that brought back many memories.Published 3 months ago by Mr. C. N. Bloor
