Decided to take this on our trip to England. Started July 5, 2012. July 26, 2012. 3/4 of the way through. All in all a good read, but not gripping......finished July 29, 2012.....well a good story, but as I said before, not gripping. I'll give Wilbur another chance in the future....but not right away!.......(Sept 2016, just finished Elephant Song, another of Wilbur Smith's books, and I liked it a lot better!)
