The publishers shot themselves in the foot with this narrator. How can you get someone to read this South African novel when he is clearly incapable of pronouncing basic local words, let alone the names of organisations and people?
The abridgement was a hack job, completely destroying the power of the original text. I certainly won't be buying any of the other Wilbur Smith books from this publisher.
This production is an outrage.

I found it very hard to follow the story and sort the characters in this performance. Too much has been left out. Characters are not well developed and it jumps around too much
Picking up many of the characters from previous novels and moving their lives on, this story fails to capture some of the pace and even horror of earlier stories. Nevertheless an interesting listen, which was helped because of previous reads

Wilbur Smith excites and like a courtesan, leads one on until the bitter beautiful end!
