View Full Version : how about a special Wilbur Smith forum?
The glistening naked thighs of the African princess at my side are quivering at the prospect of a book forum, and even as she nobly removes all her clothes and glides towards me in the moonlit evening, I can't help feeling that Wilbur Smith novels should be under the slightly porny classification, rather than the slightly boaty section. I've read loads of them and can't recommend them at all, ahem.
Hang on, if SWMBO catches me reading this section she might withdraw the boat pass!

Both are writers that you can put down.
I think some of them are Ok, but not the series . I liked Sunbird, and the one about the pilot who was blinded (cant remember the title)
"Eagle in the Sky"
Buy his books: my livelihood - at least in part - depends on it. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
'Hungry as the Sea' was absolute ****. The guy can never have seen a salvage tug, let alone been on one. Oh yes, and the million(?) tonne tanker that slid down the ways, was turned by the tugs, and went straight out to sea heading for the Gulf. Jeez, do some freakin' research if you want to be an author!
