Second book I've read by Wilbur Smith. Didn't like it as well as the first
Second book I've read by Wilbur Smith. Didn't like it as well as the first. Also, he has a penchant for killing animals in disheartening ways. The River God is largely historical inaccurate (Axum was founded over a 1000 years after this book is set, the Bedouin didn't exist, his Author's note at the end is completely bogus, the list goes on) and the Taita is too perfect to sympathize with. However, after I came to accept the River God for what it was, a great story with lots of action and an interesting journey up the Nile, I liked it better.
Books River God. Book 1 in the Egyptian Series. Land of the Pharaohs. It's clear Smith knows his subject: his graphic depiction of lust, bloodletting, politics, and, in Taita's case, honor is firmly grounded in rich details that evoke the period. An epic of sex, death and intrigue in the Valley of the Kings. Smith& descriptions hardly falter over 500 pages and has relentless momentum. Big, brave and blockbusting. brilliantly detailed descriptions of life on the Nile.
RIVER GOD. Wilbur Smith. This book, like so many others before it, is for my wife, Danielle Antoinette. The Nile that flows through this story has both of us in her thrall. We have spent days of delight voyaging together upon her waters and idling upon her banks
RIVER GOD. We have spent days of delight voyaging together upon her waters and idling upon her banks. As we are, so is she a creature of this very Africa of ours. Yet this great river runs neither so strongly nor so deeply as my love for you, my darling. THE RIVER LAY HEAVILY UPON THE desert, bright as a spill of molten metal from a furnace.
Wilbur Addison Smith (born 9 January 1933) is a British novelist specialising in historical fiction about the international involvement in Southern Africa across four centuries, seen from the viewpoints of both black and white families. This encouraged him to become a full-time writer, and he developed three long chronicles of the South African experience which all became best-sellers.
Ancient Egypt mesmerizes me and I loved Wilbur Smith's River God. Taita is a very likable character and narrates the story.
Land of the Pharaohs. A kingdom built on gold. Ancient Egypt mesmerizes me and I loved Wilbur Smith's River God. Not an everyday model hero for sure as a slave and a eunuch. But he's brilliant, spirited and above all loyal, even if a little vain; and I specifically like flawed heroes. I can't judge it's historical accuracy and I read it as a work of fiction; I'm not knowledgeable about Ancient Egypt, but I don't think it matters here.

But Tanus will have to defy the same gods to attain the reward they have forbidden him, an object more prized than battle's glory: possession of the Lady Lostris, a rare beauty with skin the color of oiled ceder-destined for the adoration of a nation, and the love of one extraordinary man. Addeddate.
Dick Hill, Wilbur A. Smith. Now the Valley of Kings lies ravaged by war, drained of its lifeblood, as weak men inherit the cherished crown. For Tanus, the fair-haired young lion of a warrior, the gods have decreed that he will lead Egypt's army in a bold attempt to reunite the Kingdom's shattered halves
