As someone who knows next to nothing about the situation in Zimbabwe, former Rhodesia, this book was an excellent eye-opener. Parts were certainly not easy to read because the author doesn't sugar-coat the facts and the harsh reality can be rather shocking. I found it very hard to put the book down and once I had finished it, the events that are so well described in it continued to occupy my thoughts. How is it possible that so little is written about the atrocities that continue to happen in Zimbabwe to this day? Not only has the author written eloquently about his own memories and experiences but he has obviously researched the history of Zimbabwe extremely well, making this book an education in itself. If it was pure fiction, I would be rather concerned about the state of mind of the author but knowing that it is based on fact makes my heart go out to all the innocent victims of the corruption in this country under Mugabe's rule. I would recommend Spindrift to everyone - learn about Zimbabwe and about the experiences of millions of its former inhabitants. You will be richer for it.

If you have ever lived in what I call the old Rhodesia, this book would mean so much to you. If you only know Rhodesia as Zimbabwe, then you should read this book of what hell the poor settlers and indiginous people had to put up with and still are putting up with since Independence under Mugabe. What a waste of a country for all.

This is a wonderful book - It captures all I ever wanted to know about the early years - Rhodesia - Zimbabwe and the tyrannical Mugabe. Wilbur Smith - eat your heart out - this book rivals the best and now waiting, hopefully, for a second book form this author.
