nice and mysterious

(2,5 Sterne)

Reader is just reading words one after the other. He does not make it a story. Always in the same croaking voice. No one in Southern Africa speaks like any of that. Often had to stop the reading due to the monotony of his voice. Yet when he introduces himself he sounds quite animated. That is how he should read it all.

The Spirit of Bambatse

(5 Sterne)

Well read, absorbing story with evil personified psychologically and with many harsships, trials and tribulations with a good dose of mysticism included before a satisfying end with an underlying romantic thread throughout. Recommended:)
