This book apparently inspired the name of the band Opeth. That's what led me to read it. The mixed reviews of it from Amazon and elsewhere made me curious as well.
To keep with that theme, my takeaway is mixed. You could say this book is a product of its time, its world, its author's perspective, whatever; but the X-ist (X = sex, paternal, race, class, god knows what else) references are common and distracting. This provides some insight into what all that was about at the time, and that has some value I suppose.
My curiosity led me here and is satisfied, so that counts for something too. I don't plan to read any other Wilbur Smith books, but I don't think this one was a waste of time either. I don't intend to inspire others' curiosity by this, but if it happens, don't blame me.
