Recommended for: Anyone who enjoysw reading about Africa and the native wildlife.
Read from May 20 to 23, 2010 — I own a copy

Received this book today 5/20/2010 through Goodreads!! I'm getting ready to start this!!

Interesting novel. I was caught up in the intrigue & motivations of the characters.

Disclaimer: A lot of misspelled words in this novel.

Sadness at the fate of Natalie and Jack. There are so many things going on in this story

The African scenery, the flora and fauna ring true to life. History, the back breaking work of the archaeologists.

Murder, political intrigue, natives tribes, plus the melting pot of jealousies stir sparks.

A lot of emphasis is placed on what Natalie's thinking,her morals, work ethics, etc. I almost lost interest in continuing this novel but plod on stubbornly. Long discourses of her thoughts.

In Many ways I felt the author was trying to psychoanalyze Natalie. Didn't really care for that. Much prefer to work it out myself as I'm reading.

This novel is a very nice read once you get past the analyzing of Natalie.
