3.0 out of 5 stars It is an awful little piece. Nov. 25 1997
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Aaargh! Oh God how I love to hate (and hate to love) this book. In its over-machoism, its super-human characters and its impossibly pathetic erotic scenes this novel really is horrible. I can't stand it! Then why did I give it a rating of 5? Well, it does deserve a 1 for the afore-mentioned reasons, but...it is also one of the most thrilling books I have ever read, it really is a page-turner, the suspense keeping intense throughout every page. And for this it deserves a 10. So I figured I'd compromise with a 5. By the way, in "London Fields" the narrator Sam keeps mentioning that he's reading a book that sounds very much like this one and he refers to it as "an awful little piece of &@34!;. I wonder if it's the same book?

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Beach Book. Unique View of African Politics June 22 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is another of Wilbur Smith's wonderful action efforts. "Time To Die" is a very enjoyable page turner. I found myself stealing from the office for an hour at a time to continue the adventure. His Sean Courtney character is better developed and more realistic than most other action-adventure protagonists. If you've never hunted, but you're curious about the hunter's mind-set, read this book. The insider view of late 20th century African politics is informative and revealing. Definitely worth 2 or 3 days. Great beach book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Flashes of brilliance put an implausible ending Oct. 9 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Mr Smith's greatest gift as an author is his insight and experience of Africa and it's inhabitants combined with the capacity to tell a really good tale. Here, once again, he doesn't disappoint. It was rather a disappointment to me however at the end, after seemingly taking the time to think through situations and scenarios, that he offered such an implausible demise for the chief villain. It left me with a lesser opinion of the book.

3.0 out of 5 stars The finish of the book ........ Nov. 13 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is an interesting book of Africa, you learn about the land and the people there, but how many times can a person trick or be tricked by the same person?. At the end of the book he left many things at the air, for example: you really don't know what happened with the hunt company of Sean Courtney and other things.

The book flawlessly manages to keep you glued to the pages.
Sean Courtney is simply one of the best characters around.
