This is my first review of any product, yet I feel compelled to weigh in on how much disapointment I feel in this book. I have read almost every book Wilbur Smith has written with great pleasure. Action, adventure, foreign and exotic locales, compelling charaters...all are what I expect from Wilbur Smith. His Egypt series previously was cut from this same cloth.
With THE QUEST, however, he has gone off the tracks. Not only does the supernatural overshadow the action, history and adventure, the smarmy LORD OF THE RINGS reader lays on the goo even more.
I will not be able to finish even Part 1 of this book and I strongly suggest that Wilbur Smith fans approach with exteme caution.
If only I had been wiser I wouldn't be stuck for a month with no book to enjoy.
