A journey to Taita’s egypt – book review on wilbur smith’s egyptian compilation

i have been reading a lot of wilbur smith recently and just finished off with his egyptian series of four books viz : the river god ; warlock ; the seventh scroll ; the quest  and i just have two words to say ” they’re awesome ” . will simply takes you back into the pharaoh times of grandoise and chariots of gold ,treasure chests filled with rubies and emeralds and dazzling diamonds , riches and opulence of all kinds, polygamy,sex,wars,murder,conspiracy,brutality, paranormal ,magic and of course true love. his writing is so vivid it indeed forces clear imagination and the reader can often find themselves as one of the characters in the book living their life real time.the most intriguing and interesting part in all the books is the journey’s that taita the eunuch takes traveling from his egypt to lands as far as the east the reader really get’s mesmerized with the way the descriptions of the whole journey happens it feels almost as if it is happening all before your eyes , the imagination become so vivid , the writing although gets a little monotonous as it comes towards ending but still keeping the reader glued because suspense just keeps unfolding one after another.
my personal favorite turns out to be “The Quest ” which is also a definite love story and a fight of good over involves a hint of psychic and paranormal that really adds up a lot of flavor to the sometimes exceedingly stretched writing thus providing a hiatus from boredom.

overall , the books are amazing  , very well written and oh so imaginative..for all those people out there who have a liking for Egyptian stuff , you should really love to read these books and the best part is there is an online combo available for them @ flipkart and amazon .. so do check it out and i hope u have a good time too reading Wilbur Smith’s Egyptian fiction
