Descripción del producto

Two archaeologists find themselves in a desperate race for ancient treasure in Wilbur Smith's fascinating tale of Egypt, The Seventh Scroll.

A fading papyrus, nearly four thousand years old. Within it lie the clues to a fabulous treasure from an almost forgotten time . . . a riddle that becomes a savage battle across the unforgiving terrain of North Africa.

When her husband is brutally murdered, beautiful half-English, half-Egyptian Royan Al Simmu is forced to seek refuge in England. With eminent archaelogist Nicholas Quenton-Harper, she can pick up the pieces of her shattered life and find the courage to return to Ethiopia. For Duraid. And for the dreams of an ancient Pharoah . . . Because others will stop at nothing to claim the prize as their own.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas This is a worthy Sequel to "River God" 8 de enero de 2001
Por Flippers - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Libro de bolsillo
I am a huge Wilbur Smith fan. "River God" is the best novel I have ever read. Be sure you read "River God" before you read "Seventh Scroll". If you like "River God" and "Seventh Scroll" you will probably also love "The Sunbird". It is very similar in theme and is its own sequel in the fashion of "River God" and "Seventh Scroll". If you have read all the Wilbur Smith books like I have, you'll yearn for more, but it takes him years to come up with a new book these days. You might look at "Churchill's Gold" by James Follett after you have read all of Mr. Smith's books. It is very similar in style and quality to most of the Courtney series.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A unique sequel 7 de enero de 2000
Por Doug Vaughn - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Libro de bolsillo
How is it possible for a sequel to be set 4,000 years after the original story? Wilbur Smith answers that question in The Seventh Scroll, a book set largely in modern day Ethiopia where conflicting groups try to locate the Egyptian treasure entombed by Taita at the end of The River God, this book's predessor. I don't know how someone who had not read The River God would respond to The Seventh Scroll (though from the other reviews it is obvious that many loved it without reading the prior book) but for me, the connection between Taita, a character that dominated the story in The River God and remains one of my favorite recent fictional characters, and the exciting 'race for the treasure' plot of The Seventh Scroll, made the action of this book all the more fascinating.
The plot and characters here - unlike The River God - don't represent any great invetive achievement. It is pretty standard good guy/bad guy stuff with lots of cliff hanger action. But Smith handles this kind of thing better than most other authors and can make even predictable situations and characters exciting.
A fun read, especially if you read and enjoyed The River God. I would recommend this, and most of Smith's many novels, to anyone who likes exciting, complex and intelligent stories. His are all this and more.

3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Really a 3.5 rating 12 de noviembre de 2003
Por Erik1988 - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Libro de bolsillo
Rating System:
1 star = some books deserve to be burned
2 star = waste of time
3 star = take it or leave it
4 star = better than getting a Value Meal free
5 star = holy & inspired writing!
STORY: In a race against an unknown enemy, Royan Al Simma, a beautiful Egyptologist who has deciphered the lost ancient scrolls, and Nicholas Quentin-Harper, an English adventurer who risks his fortune, search the Ethiopian highlands for the whereabouts of the lost treasure described in the scrolls.
MY FEEDBACK
1) SETTING: There is always something magical about Africa and Egyptian myth. Combine that with locations that are unseen by normal man and you have a nice formula for adventure.
2) CHARACTERS: Likeable good guys and despicable bad guys. No gray characters, which is fine by me and didn't seem necessary for the story. The characters are a little more than just clothes on a skeleton, because the author does flesh them out a bit and give them some clear distinctions.
3) PLOT: I like the plot. The mystery that the characters have to figure out combined with the challenges in reaching their goal kind of felt like an Indy story. Yes, some of it was predictable and telegraphed a mile away. But this kind of story focuses on the magic of discovery and even though the discovery of the character decisions wasn't a strong point, the discovery of the treasure was nicely handled.
4) Audio Book Reader - the reader did an above average reading. Some voice / accent variations for different characters and good acting made it an enjoyable listen.
5) Content - This is what really brought the book down for me. I'm going along at a nice even pace when suddenly we take a detour into a short but explicit sex scene. I wasn't expecting it. I yelled of the words, "marketing ploy" as this combined with some other aspects really turned the story into a "trashy" romance to some extent. It was like a movie throwing in a gratuitous sex scene just so it could get an R rating and attract more patrons. I was disappointed in this unnecessary component.
OVERALL: I liked the book, especially how the author refers to his previous book within this book as if he is also a fictional character in the world of Royan and Nicholas. From what I've read it sounds like I'll like the first book even more (didnt' know at the time there was a first book). I'm not disappointed I spent the time I did going through this one. It is a bit better than good but not what I would consider a very good book.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Fun read 5 de enero de 2005
Por Christa J. Conley - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Libro de bolsillo
Wilbur Smith's characters are purely fictional, and this is just a fun, fun read. This is the second book in the series, but I recommend reading River God and Warlock first (also very good), THEN reading Seventh Scroll as it takes place "present day" and the previous two books will give you the "historical" background for Seventh Scroll. If you liked the pure, simple fun of Indiana Jones, you will enjoy this book. Absolutely could not put it down towards the end!

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Just Amazing!! 23 de julio de 2001
Por maria eugenia - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Libro de bolsillo
HI there!! I just want to recommend this book and River God since they are my favorites. Mr. Smtih is such a writing genius! He describes every single thing in such a perfect way that allows you to imagine every single detail of the landscapes. Besides, The story is incredible. It's a mixture of suspense, action, adventure, that keeps the reader in the edge of his seat through out the whole book. I would definetely recommend this book for the Egypt lovers such as me and those who are looknig an entertaining book. Just read God River first so that you become very well acquainted with the characters and the lecture of the Seventh Scroll is easier to understand. I hope You'll enjoy this book as much as i did ( i read both books 5 times each) kisses
