Contemporary fiction at its best!
on October 29, 1999
If you expect literature, read something else. This book is a classic is its own right, and is much better than the trash churned by other writers in this genre, such as Jackie Collins.
The Adventurers is the story of Diogenes Alejandro Xenos, or just Dax. The book follows his struggles against circumstances and for his country, how his family becomes the victim of yet another revolution perpetrated in the name of justice. Graphic sex and violent scenes are depicted here, but not unnecessarily. Every word gives an insight into the development of the main character.
You will be thrilled reading this book, you will have moments of elation, and of sadness. And you will realize the futility of the struggles of the subjucated people in a number of third world countries. Harold Robbins very poignantly points out that for many of us, the more things change, the more they remain the same.
Dax appeals to the hero in all of us. I recommend this book highly. I hope you enjoy it.
