Summary

Shasa closed his mouth slowly. The very foundations of his political beliefs and principles were shaken and the walls cracked through. They had led him up into a high place and shown him the prize that was his for the taking.  

The future of a country. The end of a family. 

Shasa Courtney, heir to the Courtney fortunes, dreams only of uniting his divided, beloved country. Against all his principles, he allows his half brother Manfred to persuade him to join South Africa's right-wing National Party, hoping to moderate from within their dangerous policies of apartheid.  

But Shasa's wife is working against everything he's working for while Manfred has deadly secrets he cannot afford to be revealed, either to his family or the public who are on the brink of war. In the terrible struggle for the future of South Africa, the Courtney family will be torn apart - and many will have to pay a terrible price....

A Courtney Series adventure - book 3 in the Burning Shore sequence.

Loved the Book and the Now the Audible One!

I've been a fan of Wilbur Smith as long as I can remember and have pretty much all his books. Rage fits neatly into the Courtney series and I would recommend it anyone interested in Smith's story of the South African family. My only issue with the narration was that the sound quality was quite poor - or at least the recorded sound was not always high enough and even with my headphones on full volume it was a struggle to hear sometimes (like too much bass?). It was very easy to tell when it switched to a different file as the volume changed!

Ok but getting repetitive.

Ok but the series is in danger of becoming repetitive and the intimacies very macho and at the same time cliché.

Rage

I first read Rage years ago and now have heard the story. It is a very good book, well written and the narrator is amazing. He brought the story to life for me. Having read all the Courtney series I feel like I am surfacing from an adventure far away and that I know all those characters intimately. Great story telling. Wilbur Smith at his best. Highly recommended.

Excellent.

The Courtney series is a wonderful read/listen. I definitely recommend all six books and hope a 7th book will be coming in the future. Thank you Mr Smith.
