more detail. The details of Taitas riddles were t otally missing. Without these details the story was dull.
No. The story was too abridged to give it much interest.
None, I would put more of the characters in.
This story was too abridged. The point of it was totally missing.
I can not wait to start the next book. The thing is once I start one of this set of books I have to read them all again.
If you haven't read any of Wilbur Smith's work you could well enjoy this attempt to wrestle a novella out of a substantial work.
The original book is a treasure trove of plot, adventure, twists and turns. This abridged version kept only the very simple core plot - nothing else.
Although I like Mr Fox's acting, his narration seems to lurch between a boy's own adventure and an episode of the Fantastic Five.
A waste of money
History buff, home is taken over with books, loves life, people, chatting, board games, driving,traveller....
I have read all Wilbur Smith books, and his Egyptian collection is well worth the reading. My favorite is still the Quest..........Well narrated by James Fox easy lisening.
fantastic follow on from the first book. Another one you cant put down. Must be for anyone
"All of the intrigue was taken by shortenng"
Good wilbur smith
