This book was painfully slow and boring. It was inundated with too many flashbacks, and political and historical details which really interrupted the flow of the story. The only parts I liked were the descriptions of animals and places I'd seen and visited on my trip to Africa last year. Yawn! ( )

Loved this book. Set mainly in Botswana in and around many place we will be visiting in a few months. Delta is the second Tony Parks book I have read this year and both have been enjoyable. ( )

The book started off well with immediate action and the promise of more to come. The setting covers Botswana and the Okavango Delta as well as Namibia and Caprivi Strip and deals with the proposed damming of the Kavango River which was proposed several years ago.

There is a lot of action right through the book, but I found the fighting to be a tad implausible. The heroine who races through the bush in skimpy clothes and boots and can drive a bulletproof tank and fire the cannon, sounds somewhat like a comic book goddess.
I did not think that this book was up to the standard of "African Dawn", but,nevertheless, I will continue to read Tony Park's absorbing novels. ( )

Fun to read, but the story got a bit off ground. ( )

The Delta is the 7th fiction novel by Tony Park. Once again set in Africa, the main character this time is a female mercenary, Sonja Kurtz. After an attempt to assassinate the President of Zimbabwe goes wrong, Sonja escapes to Botswana. There she intends to look up her first love, Stirling Smith, at the safari lodge he still manages. Against her better judgement, her boss, Martin Steele, involves her in a plot to help the Caprivi Liberation Army and to blow up the newly-constructed Okavango Dam which appears to be destroying the Okavango Delta. Throw into the mix American actor “Coyote” Sam Chapman and his World Wildlife film crew, and you have a great story.I was interested to read and review this book for several reasons. I have read other books by Park, but the main characters have always been men, so I was interested to see how he dealt with a woman in that spot (very well!). I was also interested because it was set in Botswana. I am a very big fan of a particular series by a male author, also set in Botswana, where the main character is also a woman. Alexander McCall-Smith manages to portray Precious Ramotswe and Grace Makutsi so well in his No 1 Ladies Detective Agency series that readers could be forgiven for thinking the author was female. This book, however, is a world away from that series! Park’s dialogue is authentic, the descriptions are highly evocative, the plot has plenty of twists and turns, and the characters are quite believable, although many are not what they first seem. There are some delightful turns of phrase. Park even manages to have the reader sympathetic with a hired assassin! There is lots of action, quite a bit of violence and an exciting finish with a laugh-out-loud last line. Park’s first-hand knowledge of Africa is evident in every line of text and his love of the African landscape and many of her people is very obvious. Unlike James Patterson’s superficial offering, “Cross Country”, Tony Park’s books make you want to go to Africa to experience it for yourself. I am looking forward to his next work, African Dawn. ( )
