Irenelopez93 marked it as to-read Sep 20, Also, Smith gets bogged down with minute details of an engineering feat — I skipped qilbur pages and pages. I hardly know what to do with myself! Er zijn zeer geloofwaardige en boeiende personages, goed en eervol of helemaal slecht. Alles wordt goed uitgelegd. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.
I don’t expect this feeling to last longer than m Abandoned at page Some of the violence is extensive and gruesome and my oldest daughter, who’s read more of Smith’s work than I have, reports that this is characteristicbut it was nothing I couldn’t handle. The character of Royan was entertaining to read and easy to relate to, for the most part. This is disgusting, but it’s intended to be.
As it is, there is just so much repetition I just can’t take anymore. Taita was such an enthralling protagonist in River God papjro it was a pleasure to revisit him.
The pursuit of the truth and the treasure is immaculately portrayed, tantalising the reader like a set of hieroglyphs that are both beautiful in presentation, and mysterious in their translation.
But even though The Seventh Scroll is actually the second book in a series, it works as a stand alone novel. By the time I muddled through to the end I just wanted them to find the treasure and be done already. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.
Books by Wilbur Smith.
This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. Smith has written a beautiful, adventerous story about love, greed, death and courage. Smith’s reputation is as a popular novelist of action-adventure fiction, much of it set in his native Africa, delivering excitement and suspense. To view it, click here. I’ve never read any of his other work, except for a Reader’s Digest condensed version of The Sunbirdbut this his 25th novel would suggest that his reputation is deserved.
Where appropriate, his descriptions are vivid, and he has an obviously considerable knowledge of African history, culture and geography, which he draws on to enrich the book. Alberto Godoy rated it really liked it Oct 02, There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Refresh and try again. No matter how traumatic or dangerous their experiences were they seemed to be able to make only facetious remarks to each other.
This book is not yet featured on Listopia. It was cleverly designed for us to see the results of Taita’s work instead of hearing him boast about his genius – and we get to delight and despair with Nicholas and Royan as they play his game and struggle to discover the location of Mamose’s tomb.
You know the two main characters will hook up by the end but its not predictable how that happens.
I was going to donate it to a library book sale, but have decided to keep it, at least for the forseeable future, and maybe check out the companion book–River God. Emiliano marked it as to-read May 16, Refresh and try again. It drags a little in the middle and has some violent sex scenes that detract from the papieo, but is an overall good read.
El séptimo papiro (La Saga Egipcia, #2) by Wilbur Smith
I feel vaguely bad about doing so, but I’m also not quite willing to go to three stars and say I liked it. This book, I felt, was completely full of ridiculous ideas. I guess you have to be pretty secure in your own writing career to do that.
It takes place in a few different places, starting in Egypt, moving its way to England and then to Ethiopia. By now, I have read this book about 4 times which tells you how much I loved it. I followed the Courtneys and the Ballantynes, and then came River God This novel presupposes the events of the earlier one; but although it’s billed as the second book of the series, it takes place nearly 4, years In the opening novel of his Ancient Egypt series, River Godwhich I haven’t read veteran South African novelist Wilbur Smith depicts the fictional Pharaoh Mamose finding a temporary refuge, with some of his people, from the invading Hyskos in the valley of Ethiopia’s Blue Nile –a region that’s wild and largely unexplored even in modern times.
A highlight is when he makes the historical accuracy of the first book in this series a topic of ongoing debate throughout this book. Most of the setting is modern-day Ethiopia where the two main characters search for the tomb and treasure told about in River God River Godthe first book of the trilogy.
I made the mistake of taking a break and after picking the book up again I simply could not care less about what happens. While there were references to River God, there was nothing …more I bought this book at a garage sale for 50 cents having no idea there was even a prequel.
I’d never heard of the author before, and didn’t even realize it was part of a series until I looked it up on Goodreads when I was about halfway through the novel.
El Septimo Papiro
This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Not my favourite of his books Abandoned at page Regardless, it works wonderfully here. What is there not to like? TaitaDuraidRoana.
His books are now translated into twenty-six languages and have sold over smirh copies. I wanted to break up a string of biographies by reading something moronic, and this really tried to deliver.
I love multiple Points of View, but I’m of the opinion that the POV change needs to happen at a chapter break, or at least a section break within a chapter.
