The story was too plotting.
The story moved slowly. It reads like a 1950's WWII spy novel. Just so-so.
He is the master of seemingly all dialects, Australian, South African, German, Irish, Chicago, New York, Canadian, the list goes on.
Watching Jack grow from childhood to senior citizen and all of his adventures was spellbinding. I am truly sorry we are at the end of Courtenay's books. What a gifted storyteller.
Absolutely! Excellent insight to the African continet and the various other colonial and Arabic powers
The caravan sloughing into the African interior contending with the various occupants, elements and rigors of the trek.
The couple times where Stanley's indomitable will purshed the others beyond their own expectations
I thoroughly enjoyed the book in it's detail, dialogue, and cast of characters.
His previous novels did not have as much dialogue and were packed with history and action.
Not so much the genre as the authors books. I really enjoyed Shogun and King Rat this was a major disappointment.
His accents and dialects
I will pay more attention to the reviews of his books in the future.
Good insight to a campaign of Worlr war II that has not received as much coverage as the European campaign
The Casablanca meeting
The book has me wanting more information, more detail about the campaign
I never read the print edition
The visuals painted by the author
Yes, he is excellent. This is comprable to what I have listened to from him before.
No extreme reaction. Some of the tales made me cringe from the brutality
I thoroughly enjoy lenghty in depth character development and this book definitly fits that description.
