I have a lot of time to read so I figured why not pass on my reviews on novels, non fiction and travel books and apps. I hope it helps you find something to calm your day like reading does for me.
I was really due an easy to read novel and when I found that Wilbur Smith had another novel about Taita, well - I couldn't resist.
I've always loved this series of books but now that I've seen so much of Egypt and know the places he talks about, I love them even more. Taita is the most vain of characters, however his loyalty to the royal family is unwavering and yet another adventure builds on that premise. After his mad and unstable brother Utteric takes the throne, Taita helps Rameses to plan his attack on not just the royal seat but also to retake Luxor.
As with all these books it is stunningly researched and the story intertwines with real history so you feel like you can imagine the drama and characters that the story contains. Another very well written African story from the master African story teller.
A very solid 4!
I really love reading, however I read to escape mostly & while I did read Che Guevera's diaries (I was in Cuba at the time) most of my reading is lightweight and fast paced.
