Wow! It is rare that from the first page of a book you feel like you get to know the ins and outs of its narrator, but that's exactly what happened with this book. Wilbur Smith is compelling intriguing, with a writing style that clearly spills straight from the heart into the ink on the pages.
The thing I found most fascinating reading the first few pages is that Wilbur has clearly developed this novel out of pure passion for writing - to have it published to a wider audience is surely a plus, but to be able to put pen to paper and produce something so heart-felt and personal is certainly enough of a reward in itself.
I would love to delve deeper into Wilbur's life and learn even more about the phenomenal man behind the pages!
