Third seuence bring to the narrative Apparently some back stories related to the historical Courtneys though not entirely seuential or constant from what I have heard I suppose we will have to wait and seeKudos Mr Smith for an interesting end to the second seuence I can only hope you have political intrigue in store for readers as well as additionally addictive characters Likehate the review An ever growing collection of others appears at Read a long time ago Enjoyed it as most of his books This seemed a bit ifferent to a lot of the other WS books I ve read yes it s set in Africa and involves a Courtenay but the relentless violence bloodlust and cruelty was pretty wearying not to mention the sexism and attitudes to hunting which were probably considered acceptable in 1989 but now felt very Academic Writing, Real World Topics distasteful not one of my favourites by smith A great book Suspenseful till the last pagewhere you ll want to cheerOne of Mr Smith s fine books On the same suspense as all his other works Great plot great suspense veryetailed One of the best books I have ever read It is adventurous yet not unrealistic It has all the important moments written on the right pages I just could not put it Repressed Memories A Journey to Recovery from Sexual Abuse FiresideParkside Recovery Book down and read it at homein the train next to me sat the lady with exactly the same copy simply everywhere I am a native European but it made me want to explore Africa right away I wanted to move there wanted to live there and be an african What That is how good the book is Not a bad book I started out hating all the main characters but they grew on me by the endThe Kindle version is full of typos like they just scanned the actual book andidn t even proof read it Still readable but annoyingI would have given 4 out of 5 with no typos I continue to be hooked on Wilbur Smith and love his Courtney series This one involves Sean Courtney I think he is about the third Sean Courtney relative over the past several generations And as I recall in one of the previous books in the series he was pretty Experiments in a Jazz Aesthetic disfavored and was kicked out of the country and only allowed too so when his father pulled strings to keep him out of prisonSo when I started this book I remembered this Sean as a ne er o well At this point in his life however he has matured somewhat although he "Still Has Many Of Those Remembered Bad Traits And He "has many of those remembered bad traits and he a successful business as an African safari leader The story is to me tremendously interesting first with a lion hunt then an elephant hunt and along the way a bobbing and weaving trying to avoid the two warring factions in Africa None of the other Courtneys are involved in the book to any extent but neither are they eliminated as characters for future stories Yeah Looking forward to stories about the Courtneys from Wilbur Smith as well as his other series so much suspense sex appeal and adventurethe story of a simple hunt is turned into so muc.
