Greatest author.....

by lubaby on Jul 17, 2011

I have read all Wilbur Smith's books - I really enjoyed his Egyptian series. He makes books and people come to life and there are many really exciting segments of his novels that make one literally bite one's nails! He is without a doubt the best author I have ever read!

Good, but certainly no River God

by Flyingdutchman on Oct 3, 2007

River God was the first WIlbur Smith novel I discovered and was ,without a doubt, the most poignant, engaging, and enjoyable novel I read this year. What made the novel so special was the first person narative ot the eunich Taita. Ancient Egypt viewed through his eyes, filtered through his own experience, humored by his great ego and tempered by his very human frailties. I so wanted that experience to continue with Warlock, and with such high expectations found myself disappointed. Smith elected to tell the sequel to Taita's story through third person narrative, thus broadening the story lines but losing the almost proasic quality of River God. The love story that spanned generations in the first novel, seems by comparision, a formulaic convention in this third novel. And the Taita of the first book, surviving and thriving by his wit and wisdom has now been elevated to full fledged Wizard. He is now Obi-Wan, and Gandalf rolled into one. There is no fear for his survival, he's too powerful and mystic a figure. The human frailty that made his story such a timeless human drama is lost in this third installment. Read it for the action, and the escape into the ancient past, but don't expect Taita to reach out to you accross the millenia.
