Don't Waste Your Money - or Your Time!
22 October 2018
I bought the Kindle edition of this latest 'Wilbur Smith', anticipating a good read as it has some good reviews and is a No.1 Best Seller. Life is full of disappointment and this book only confirms that.
I managed to get through about 50% of the book before giving up - Mills and Boon books are Booker Prize winners in comparison to this tedious, disjointed and poorly written novel. It does not hold a candle to the other Courtney novels. This story is sold as being 'co-written' - I suspect that the only contribution made by Wilbur Smith was his name.
Perhaps it is time for Mr Smith to put away his pen and preserve his reputation as a good story teller, intact - after all, I am sure that he does not need the money.
