Both sides of Apartheid presented Well developed characters Plenty of interesting information and action to make this a long book, which is just what I wanted a good meaty read.

I am a great fan of Wilbur Smith, his stories are epic and you can t help but be swept away I liked Rage, its interesting to reflect on our situation today and the time in which this novel was written I d love to see an follow up book from the author set against the backdrop of the current situation in South Africa One thing about the book bothered me and that is the affair between Isabella Courtney and Lothar de la Rey aren t they related Of course they did not know, but both Centaine C I am a great fan of Wilbur Smith, his stories are epic and you can t help but be swept away I liked Rage, its interesting to reflect on our situation today and the time in which this novel was written I d love to see an follow up book from the author set against the backdrop of the current situation in South Africa One thing about the book bothered me and that is the affair between Isabella Courtney and Lothar de la Rey aren t they related Of course they did not know, but both Centaine Courtney Malcomess and Manfred de la Rey knew Mmm, but perhaps this is part of the reason why Lothar broke it off.I was shocked by the murder of Moses Gama by his own nephew and the depths to which such radicalism stretches Oh the treacherous deceit of the act I felt that the end was rather rushed, but all in all I was satisfied to know the fate of all the characters in the book This book definitely enlightened me to see the struggle from both perspectives
I would rate this book a 3.5 out of 5 This is a classic Wilbur Smith book and I enjoyed it very much I enjoyed itthan the 3 stars would indicate The story always moves at a fast pace, the plot lines are always interesting and not always what you think, and he does a great job of making the reader feel like they are a part of South Africa and the culture The part of this book that I had a really hard time with is Smith s portrayal of women All of his books have sex scenes, but in this I would rate this book a 3.5 out of 5 This is a classic Wilbur Smith

I really liked this book There are so many stories going at once it can get a bit difficult to keep track of things, but it all ties together in the end. Wilbur Smith deftly navigates the worlds of South Africa in Rage, although his worldview as a white English heritage South African shows He gives a sweeping account of modern South African history, but I always feel pessimistic after reading one of his books admittedly, this is only the second of his books I ve read His characters, while flawed, are rarely sympathetic Everyone has an ulterior motive and can only be expected to act selfishly Characters are either despicable or stupid For t Wilbur Smith deftly navigates the worlds of South Africa in Rage, although his worldview as a white English heritage South African shows He gives a sweeping account of modern South African history, but I always feel pessimistic after reading one of his books admittedly, this is only the sec
