Produktbeschreibungen

From Library Journal

Wild Justice, nicely read by Steven Pacey, involves Col. Peter Stride, who leads an elite force in an assault on a hijacked airliner in an attempt to free endangered hostages. Though the raid succeeds, Stride is fired for not fully following orders. Free from his military connection, he is then in a position to fight terrorism and conspiracy independently. A good story with lots of twists and treacheries. Together or separately, these three books are fine short adventures; each tale is about one-sixth the length of its original novel and loses an awful lot in the abridging. A recommendation: get these audios if you must for patrons in a hurry, but point them to an unabridged version if you can. - Cliff Glaviano, Bowling Green State Univ. Libs., OH

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Angels Weep is an outstanding piece of workmanship 1. November 1997
Von byl@3rdMil.com - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The Angels Weep does what few books can. Smith, as Africa's Michener, skillfully blends the history of Africa with fictional characters, to give the reader both historical insight and a very enjoyable read. This book is two pronged, as it covers the two most important eras of Rhodesian-Zimbabwean history. The late 1800's and 1977 are respectively the eras when the country of Rhodesia was founded, and 1977 the year a black-led revolution took place. In each of these eras, Smith blends a fabric of interwoven and interdependent characters, both black and white, who typify the strength, courage, and keen failures of a land that is both beautiful and dangerous. A warning to the faint of heart, the book is full of violence, a necessary feature of any story about this troubled land. This may be the best book written by a man I think is the world's best author, or at least a peer of the immortal Michener.

4.0 von 5 Sternen This Effectively Ties Up The Ballantyne Saga 24. Februar 2006
Von Chris Ward - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
"The Angels Weep" functions as the closer to the Ballantyne Family series begun with "A Falcon Flies" and "Men of Men." Don't read this before having read these first two. There's another book starring a Ballantyne relation that follows this (and the recent "Triumph of the Sun" an afterthought), but it's dispensible and adds nothing to the arc of these three books.

This is a satisfying closer to the saga-- it tells the story of the birth of Rhodesia, and its death. It's a very bloody tale of black against white-- for those who want a good notion of the historical roots of Zimbabwe, these three books can't be beat. Smith is sometimes accused of racism and sexism, but he's telling a story where these issues can't be ignored, and he does a reasonable job of representing both viewpoints, invader and invaded, black and white, winners and losers. He's clumsy with the romance, but excellent with the battles and the reasons behind them. Worth tracking down.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Not for the faint of heart 17. August 2001
Von JeffreyG - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I think this book is one of Wilbur Smith's best books. It tells the history of the struggle between the blacks and whites in present-day Zimbabwe. This book probably has more violence and bloodshed than any book I've ever read. However, it tells an important story and has some powerful messages.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Intresting book, a little too high on violence 4. Februar 2001
Von "odzerwangchuk" - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I started reading this book and finished it in around 12 days. Intrestingly this book takes you on a journey across the fate of a people and a nation. It has lots of violence but then Zimbabwe has has been a violent place. Ralph's homophobia was distressing and his brothers suicide in the book was unnerving. What i like the most is the manipulation of characters by the authour. They seem so real but at the same time so unreal. He tries to end the book in "all well that ends well" spirit. However i should say that its one of his best works that i ever read. When it comes to Africa, Smith sure knows how to write.

3.0 von 5 Sternen African Historical Fiction & Adventure 26. April 2011
Von A. Marty - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
This is the third book in Wilbur Smith's Ballantyne series about a family in Southern Africa. The Ballantyne series, unlike the Courtney Series, is set primarily in the lands north of the Limpopo River which, during the late nineteenth and early twentieth century came under the administration of the British South Africa Company in what is now Zimbabwe and Zambia. The first book, a "Falcon Flies" is the story of Dr. Robin Ballantyne and her brother Zouga Ballantyne. The first book includes their efforts to reach the lands north of the Limpopo that their father had explored, their efforts to end the slave trade and to bring Christianity to the natives. In the second book, "Men of Men" the focus is on Zouga Ballantyne and his sons. Zouga, who dreams of returning to the land north of the Limpopo finds himself mixed up in the events following the discovery of diamonds at Colesberg Kopje which eventually becomes "the big hole" of Kimberly. It introduced us to Cecil John Rhodes and the ruthless manipulation that led to his great wealth while men like Zouga experience the danger and drudgery of the diamond pits. This third book, "The Angels Weep" begins where Men of Men left off, in the rich grass lands of Matabeleland below the Zambezi River (Zimbabwe) after the death of Lobengula Khumalo (1894) - the second and last king of the Matabele people whom Rhodes and Zouga and others had tricked into war. "The Angels Weep" focuses on Zouga's eldest son Ralph, married to his cousin, the daughter of Dr. Robyn Ballantyne and her first husband as well as on Bazo, 'the Hammer' the nephew of Lobengula and his family . This novel sweeps through to the present day when the confrontation of two families, mirroring the conflict of two nations, comes full circle. If you love history, adventure, wildlife, geography, and political and economic intrigue this book is a "must read."
