Reviews of Monsoon (1999)
Monsoon is the typically gripping Wilbur Smith epic. No matter what the subject, Smith enthralls his readers and refuses to release them, even after the novel has ended. This story, that of Hal Courtney and his four sons (well, three - one dies early on) is an incredible story of courage, adventure and integrity. I can highly recommend this book to anyone who likes exploration, adventure, action, and the unexpected. Smith delivers on all counts. If you've never read a Wilbur Smith novel, this is a great place to start!
