  • An Entertaining Read

    I suppose I have read everything Wilbur Smith has ever written and have enjoyed most of it. RIVER GOD was no exception although he has deviated from his usual stories that have Africa as their theme, to Egypt – and ancient Egypt at that in the time of the pharaohs.
    The story is related through the eyes of a slave, Taita, a brilliant and compassionate man who is the advisor to Queen Lostris. The book contains all the old favourites of Smith’s novels – revenge, bravery, love, and slaughter interspersed with swathes of facts that must have sent his research team into paroxysms of despair. All well worth it as the reader will learn much of the customs and culture of ancient Egypt.
    An excellent light read although the editor needs a slap on the wrist (I read this on Kindle so I don’t know if that makes a difference) as there were many typos and spelling errors. Words were joined together (no space between them) and this was especially noticeable in the second half.
    However despite this annoyance, RIVER GOD was a good read and Smith has lived up to his reputation yet again.

  • If you like historical fiction, you'll love this book!!
    Very descriptive in detail of events during that time of history.
    The people come alive and you feel as tho you are there and witnessing
    the times and perils. Once you start to read, it's hard to put down.
    Recommend this book highly!!!

  • Second book I've read by Wilbur Smith. Didn't like it as well as the first. Also, he has a penchant for killing animals in disheartening ways. That may be fine for some people, but it's not my cup of tea. Still, he puts together a pretty good story and the writing is fine (but not exceptional).

  • I bought this book in large part because I love historical fiction and when searching for books similar to James Clavell's Asian Saga or Gary Jennings' Aztec, the River God frequently came up. With this in mind, I decided to give Wilbur Smith a try. Undoubtedly, this impacted my view of River God, as I found myself constantly comparing it to other writers. The River God is largely historical inaccurate (Axum was founded over a 1000 years after this book is set, the Bedouin didn't exist, his Author's note at the end is completely bogus, the list goes on) and the Taita is too perfect to sympathize with. However, after I came to accept the River God for what it was, a great story with lots of action and an interesting journey up the Nile, I liked it better. If you want 12 years of historical research like Jennings did in Aztec, try a different writer on Egypt. If you want a great story with some good hunting descriptions and enough history to keep you on Wikipedia fact checking or learning more about Egyptian mythology for hours, River God will suffice.

  • Detail in an historical novel is like location in business real estate - the ultimate. This is the first in the Egypt series and I missed it. I read The Seventh Scroll and Warlock seven years ago, These books 2 and 3 in the series. What impressed me Andrew me back into the series was the characters, their foibles, strengths, and down right human idiocy on occasion. Taita the eunuch is the glue that binds these books and the dynasty of the Mamose Pharaohs together. Taita's devotion to Queen Lostris, his father like love for the soldier Tanus, and his deep but concealed hatred for Lostris's father, corrupt, power mad Grand Vizer drive the story. Add the scary Hyksos barbarians to the mix. a few tomb tours and Taita;s inquisitive mind matched to his engineering and design skills and the page length is no longer a problem.

  • If its ancient Egypt, count me in, and Wilbur doesn't disappoint. I picked up this book simply because of the many five stars here on Amazon and it is the very definition of a fast-paced narrative. Can be unbelievable at times, but you won't have any time to be bored. Simply put, the narrator Taita is the most amazing human being ever born, and the supporting characters, though not nearly as awesome, are heads above the rest of us mortals. Wilbur can definitely spin a tale, from the devilish Lord Intef who renders Taita less than a man and causes his own daughter to hate his guts, to Tanus, the god-hero who makes Lostris throw her panties in the air. There is adventure, romance, intrigue, incredible battle scenes, especially the hunting scene with the elephants (amazing), but most importantly there is Taita, whom you might come to hate or love but never can deny his awesomeness.

  • The first chapter of River God left me wondering why my daughter in law recommended it to me. The early descriptions of castration and detailed descriptions of the body of a young girl made me wonder what I was getting into. After having completed the book, and it does get one hooked to continue reading, action was really the major part of the book. It reminded me an X-rated James Michener or Taylor Caldwell. The story takes place in Egypt around 1800 BC. The main character and narrator, is a eunuch. The other principle characters are a young girl who will be queen and a warrior who becomes her love.
    The story is filled with action and intrigue and is overall very interesting reading. It includes the life style, inventions and daily life of that time period, right down to the toilet habits and politics. It is a long book, but is quick to read. It really is well researched and well written. I recommend River God to those who do not find raw descriptions of that time and place to be a problem.
