River God - Wilbur Smith

Thanks Surya…

A good read. Enjoyable. Didn't come across any character that I would HATE, but I do feel the book would've been so much better if Taita was a little less biased towards the Queen. At least in his account of her knowledge about state matters, skill, tact etc. In my opinion, Taita gave her way too much credit and praise (for her skills and tact) but the recorded events don't reflect the same.

The last few chapters were a bit too… well… suffice to say there was too much emotion.

Taita was in love with the Queen... and love does that to you, I hear. It makes you biased... every little thing about the person you love is a thing of beauty. So I hear.
