Entertaining but some gore & very adult material

If were made into a movie they would be hard put to not edit out some scenes or have a R or even X rating. I didn't appreciate the explicit gore much but did like the history being brought to life. Very life-like, including the sex, if that is what you are looking for in your library (I'm not) ; its all part of life.

Graphic Violence and Sexual Content

This book has a good story line, although it was somewhat predictable. I really like Wilbur Smith, but he is 'over the top' in graphic violence and sexual content. In most cases it did little to enhance the novel, and seemed so unnecessary (such as ripping babies from the womb). If you have sensitive dispositions, avoid this book. If you can overlook the violence, it is a good book to read
