Hello hello!

I'm just wondering if anyone else out there has read or reads Wilbur Smith's books... I would just like to say that he is the greatest historical fiction novelist I've ever read. I would like to know if anyone has any book reviews on Wilbur Smith that they would like to share with me!

What's your favorite Wilbur Smith book?

I read a Wilbur Smith book years ago, i think it was called 'The Seventh Scroll' Eygptian theme, i really enjoyed but haven't read any since. Any one have any suggestions?

Yes. I found a book without a cover on a ferry going from chumpon to Koh Tao in the gulf of thailand. It was shoved in a corner, and even had large chunks of pages missing.

but i took it with me and i read what was there, probably about 4/5 of the book. I didn't even know the title or author until i was back in the United States and I found it online.

Shout at the Devil by Wilbur Smith, an author who i had never heard of before. A great fucking book that makes you both laugh and cry and connect with the characters. It has also been made into a movie. I've been trying to find the movie.

I'm sure all his books must be good, but I know this one is good.
