River god

To all of those who love an excellent read, I'd like to share with you the love of the historical novel, written by the extremely talented word-smith, Wilbur Smith. The Novel is titled RIVER GOD.

Best historical novelist: "I say, Wilbur Smith"
Stephen King

Welcome to the world of ancient Egypt in New York Times best selling author Wilbur Smith's sensational novel... RIVER GOD.

A grand tale of intrigue, deception, true love and exile.

Re: River god

It seems not everyone is enchanted - just read a few reviews!

I don’t usually advocate the burning of books, but in this guy’s case I’ll make an exception. He has some of the worst, turgid, cliché ridden prose in the English language. This guy must have a cliché macro programmed into his computer. “Oooh! I need a cliché. What one shall I use? I think I’ll use F7.” I do not know how this guy got published, not even once but multiple times. If you come across a book written by this guy take it to a safe place douse it in gasoline and set fire to it.

Thanks Tabby. While I don't care for all of his novels, most of them are fantastic.
As a follow-up to River God, may I suggest The Seventh Scroll. It is a modern day story of the search for Mamose's Tomb which Tiata describes in River God.

Another favorite of mine is Sunbird.

In my humble opinion, no-one puts words together like Wilbur Smith... a true wordsmith.

Apparently, tens of millions of other folks agree with you. On the New York Times best seller list for many months.
PS: published in 27 languages.

Re: River god

If you like this author you might also like Ken Folletts, ‘Pillars of the Earth’ series. It’s my husbands favourite book.

Indeed. Pillars of the Earth is a grand historical novel. One of my all-time favorites.
