River God is a fantastically well written story. The pacing is superb, it is a page turner from start to finish; At several hundred pages long, not once does it let your attention wander.

Ah, Wilbur. Such imagination and genius. In River God we have our heroes, our villains, and our just plain old normal protagonist. But what's so different about Wilbur Smith's book River God, our protagonist isn't the strong, battle sharpened figure, No. It's an old slave with a mind so clever that he saves the whole of Egypt from all types of disaster. A must read, it contains war, romance and all the other things that we have come to know from Wilbur.

I could not put this book down, however that is not unusual when it comes to Wilbur Smith's novels. I found this look into ancient Egpyt very fascinating and the story touching. Smith's interpretation of the ancient Taita is superb - very amusing. The action, romance and tragedy all mesh together to make one hell of a novel. Discovering that there is some truth to the story makes me remember it all the more.
