    How can you possibly resist a book about ancient Egyptians River God was a pleasure to read At over 600 pages it still managed to keep the action flowing right until the end and it doesn t hurt that Taita is one of the sweetest and most likable characters I ve come to know in a long time.At first I wasn t too sure about this book I bought it on a spur of the moment and didn t know what to expect from it Taita comes across as a priss...

    Ancient Egypt mesmerizes me and I loved Wilbur Smith s River God Taita is a very likable character and narrates the story Not an everyday model hero for sure as a slave and a eunuch But he s brilliant, spirited and above all loyal, even if a little vain and I specifically like flawed heroes I can t judge it s historical accuracy and I read it as a work of fiction I m not knowledgeable about Ancient Egypt, but I don t think it matters here It was a great adventure to read the Egyptian Co Ancient Egypt mesmerizes me and I loved Wilbur Smith s River God...

    River God is one of those historical novels that broke open a whole new world to me I have been to Ancient Egypt, lived, lost and triumphed there, and then resurfaced in my own time as if coming out of a vivid dream The images are still with me, but what makes it truly wonderful is the main character, Taita He is the star of this book, not the two star crossed lovers who dominate the book description Taita is a slave, a eunuch, but a highly educated and privileged one He s an artist, an inv River God is one of those historical novels that broke open a whole new world to me I have been to Ancien...

    A decent story about life in egypt around 2000BC is marred by hamfisted writing I didn t hate the book, but i sure hated parts of it In general the story isn t bad, but the writing made me cringe at best, and annoyed or angry at worst It is full of 2 dimensional characters who never change or change from one flat personality to another , constant deus ex machina in the form of actual egyptian gods and somewhat creepily sexual writing that is out of place and excessive.River God is narrated A decent story about life in egypt around 2000BC is marred by hamfisted writing I didn t hate the book, but i sure hated parts of it In general the story isn t bad, but the writing made me cringe at best, and annoyed or angry at worst It is full of 2 dimensional characters who never change or change from one flat personality to another , constant deus ex machina in the form of actual egyptian gods and somewhat creepily sexual writing that is out of place and excessive.River God is narrated ...

    When I marked this book as currently reading, I was surprised to see that at some point I had rated it five stars I know I have read one of Smith s Egyptian titles, but I am not certain it was this one I think I must have slapped those five stars onto it back when I first joined GR and did not understand the system I remember in those days going through lists and happily marking any book I either owned or recognized Silly me Some day I will make myself a shelf of all such books and then re When I marked this book as currently reading, I was surprised to see that at some point I had rated it five stars I know I have read one of Smith s Egyptian titles, but I am not certain it was this one I think I must have slapped those five stars onto it back when I first joined GR and did not understand the system I remember in those days going through lists and happily marking any book I either owned or recognized Silly me Some day I will make myself a shelf of all such books and then re read them to see if my beginner s enthusiasm can stand up to proper scrutiny.But meanwhile I am admitting defeat with this book and marking it a DNF for now It is interesting, but very raw and bloody, with detailed and disgusting torture scenes that turned my stomach This all in the first 60 pages, too I ve read quite a few of Smith s other titles and while he is wonderful at heart stopping adventure, he is a bit crude Sometimes I can deal with that, but not at this...
