Read full description of the books:Alas, I did not learn something essential or scholarly in any way by reading Birds of Prey. I might not have helped me understand history or comprehend anything fundamental to my life, but I would say that reading Birds of Prey was fun and allowed me hours of enjoyable and dashing adventure within Wilbur Smith’s well written story.
All in all, it is a great pirate story set on east coast of Africa in the 1600's. The author appears to know his sailing (of which I am totally ignorant, but there is great care to give the reader elements of nautical life and ship terminology), his history, and as always is a world-class storyteller. The plot is fast and includes a journey on the high seas, the hunt of deadly pirates, moves into the vast African continent with the final escape from a Dutch prison. Everything not without its pitfalls. The true beginning of the Courtney saga, even though it is #9 in the series.
I really enjoyed this book. Wilbur Smith excels in this kind of storytelling and, most important, in creating likable characters and detestable villains. Recommended.
