After a laborious start, somewhere between The Matrix and Lord of the Ring, Wilbur Smith eventually gets down to "King Solomon's mines" territrory, where he fares a lot better.
For the first say 100 pages, you will want to drop the book and think no editor probably dared talk down a succesful writer, then it gets a lot better once the journey start, the cannibals get into the act, blood starts to flow, and so does the story.
Taita lost a lot of its spark and petulance in this latest and sometimes belaboured installement.
Brilliant book for the beach or a holiday in the (rainy) countryside!
