I'm a huge fan of his books especially his Egyptian series, I found a subject called Egyptology existed because of River God, I'm now in my second year of taking Egyptology and Ancient History as my degree at University, my Grandfather will never forgive him for giving me an obession with Egyptology. I met him in April when he was doing book signings for his new book, The Quest and I have a signed copy.

I haven't read the entire collection, I'm reading Monsoon at the moment which is really good so far. I highly recommend him if you are looking for any books to read.

Yaaay! I adore River God by Wilbur Smith! My father picked it up one day, he breezed right through it and I borrowed it off him soon after (we both have a fascination with Ancient Egypt!). I don't think I've read the other books, but I want to read Warlock, of his. I have no idea of the order. One of these days I'll get myself to the library and start those up again. /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Sorry, didn't really like that book. It's too complicated.
