I read this book for the second time after 20 years because I remembered it when I was finally able to take up my much loved habit of reading again...I devoured it in two days! No way to keep from picking it up at every opportunity!The characters and story line are flawless and the action and anticipation are on the mark!

Wilber Smith truly captivates you with this beautifully written novel. Its the kind of novel where you finish reading the last page and you want to turn it to the beginning and read it over again. Its one of my favorites and I highly recommend it! Warlock and The Seventh Scroll are next on my list.

After about the first 30 pages, the book picks up steam. Incredibly researched. Read the author's notes at the end of the book before you start reading the book. . . it explains how the story is based on scrolls found inside of an egyptian tomb. If I had known that when I started the book it would have been even more interesting while reading it. Definitely worth reading if you like historical novels.

This book was one of the best books I've ever read. Some people think that this book is too vivid in some of it's details. I happen to believe its better to read such a masterpiece than witness the vulgarity and pervertiness in a music video on MTV. There are many things that seem inapropriate for younger viewers, but yet if that viewer is mature enough to understand that this has to do with history, than it truly makes it a wonder to read and comprehend. I find this book such a joy to read becuase of these vivid details. On the edge of your seat action, I like to call it. Wilbur Smith has done it again, bringing action and adventure to our maturing minds.

This book belongs in the fantasy category not historical fiction. So, if you are interested in a fairy tale based in aancient Egypt this book might be right for you. Otherwise don't waste your time.

I am a huge Smith fan, since I started reading his books. I started with Birds of Prey, Monsoon and Blue Horizon and could not put them down. His stories are so vivid you almost feel like you are part of the story. Can't wait to start Warlock, Seventh Scroll and Quest.

I was on a business trip in California and bought this book to have something to read on the plane back to the East Coast. It was awesome! River God is the first of four books depicting history in ancient Egypt with a bit of fiction mixed in . . . well, maybe a lot of fiction. I intend on buying the remaining three and continuing the ride!
