Rage

There are heroes and there are monsters. But most of us are ordinary mortals caught up in events too turbulent for any of us. Perhaps when the battle is over, all we will inherit are the ashes of a once beautiful land.

Publisher's Summary

There are heroes and there are monsters. But most of us are ordinary mortals caught up in events too turbulent for any of us. Perhaps when the battle is over, all we will inherit are the ashes of a once beautiful land.

It is 1952. Guided by the ruthless hands of Shasa Courtney and Centaine Malcolmess, the Courtney family empire has come to dominate the lives of white and black South Africans alike.

But the winds of change are fanning fires of revolution. In the deadly quest of power, Shasa will be tested far beyond the battle of the boardroom, forced to betray his ideals for a misguided dream of national unity.

    "Out-rage"

    The publishers shot themselves in the foot with this narrator. How can you get someone to read this South African novel when he is clearly incapable of pronouncing basic local words, let alone the names of organisations and people?

    The abridgement was a hack job, completely destroying the power of the original text. I certainly won't be buying any of the other Wilbur Smith books from this publisher.

    This production is an outrage.

    "Excellent action adventure story"

    I found myself wishing for a list of books that have similar energy and story line quality. I have run out of Wilbur Smith Books in audio format. I will now have to start reading those books of his that are in print format; something my dyslexia has been avoiding. They are that well written.

    "Rage abated"

    Picking up many of the characters from previous novels and moving their lives on, this story fails to capture some of the pace and even horror of earlier stories. Nevertheless an interesting listen, which was helped because of previous reads
