Description

The second novel in Wilbur Smith's The Courtneys series, The Sound of Thunder is a powerful story of family tragedy set against the backdrop of the ravages of the Second Boer War. 

'Only once in his life had Sean met a man whose strength matched his own - and now, again, they were pitted against each other....'

Sean Courtney, impulsive adventurer of When the Lion Feeds, returns from the wilderness a rich man - until he is robbed by the Boers of his wagons, his gold and the girl he loves. A grim homecoming finds his country in the cruel grip of war. But in the bloody days ahead, conflicts within his family will prove far more bitter than any fought on the veld....

Riveting

The book makes me feel like a fly on the wall the whole way through.
As a South African man, this book just speaks to me.

Great Story! Great Narrator!

The story was great - a little uncomfortable to listen to the elephant poaching parts - other than that it was an exciting read (listen)! The narrator: Sean Barrett was AMAZING and made the listen really pleasurable!

Tremendous story, beautiful narration

This is by far my favorite series of historical fiction. The sweep, characters, and writing take me away to the Continent every time I listen.

Huge book great series touched me deeply.

Although Wilbur Smith holds the pinnacle of my authors list, and this series is among my favorite, this book touched me most deeply. its typical in depth descriptions of era, characters and places paint a wonderful mental image, but it departure from flawless heros to a trouble family meant a great deal to me. It offers a portrayal of how complex life can be. It is a huge complex novel covering many years and characters, requiring me to read and listen several time... each being a joy.
