There's an attractive air of menace hanging over the proceedings, but otherwise the movie feels stagey and stilted. Liz Braun. Liam Lacey. There's no small pleasure in watching Dolan and Greenwood square off against each other Peter Howell.

Elephant Song may be small in scope but it is big in its vision. It is a film that will keep your curiosity piqued, delivering on it premise to complete satisfaction.

Allie Gemmill. Greenwood is convincing as a professional teetering on the edge of desperation, but Dolan's twitchy, mannered turn gives him almost nothing to play against.

Norman Wilner. Elephant Song is a twisty and unpredictable film that has poignancy and depth thanks to a layered story that's executed brilliantly by the two leads.

Josh Cabrita. T'Cha Dunlevy. It brings a stew of potentially challenging themes and ideas, particularly for the time, and backgrounds them for a verbal fight that is never fair or in question from the first word.

At the same time, Greene and Peterson are slowly developing an emotional connection. They lost their daughter Rachel in a lake drowning and grew emotionally apart.

Michael draws Greene into his plot by convincing him not to read his files, but rather form his own opinion based on what Michael has to offer in explanations.

Michael continues revealing his troubled experiences with his parents. The elephant connection is from his sole meeting with his father in a nature reserve, when the father kills an elephant in front of his son.

The incident traumatized the very young Michael, as does his mother's cold attitude and her distancing herself from him for her singing career.

Michael claimed he "killed his mother" by refusing to call an ambulance for her when she injected an overdose of pills, instead singing to her the "elephant song" until she died on the floor.

Michael discusses the circumstances of his forced stay in the hospital, hinting at improper doctor-patient relationships involving him and Lawrence, and a bizarre love-hate relationship with Peterson.

Michael is aware that Nurse Peterson and Dr. Michael's ploys also include an attempt to negotiate his early release from hospital in return for divulging the circumstances of Dr.

Lawrence's disappearance. Michael eventually convinces Greene to exchange a box of chocolates for a note Michael has concealed, which will reveal what has happened to Lawrence.

The note states that Lawrence has simply gone to be with his sick sister. While Greene phones Lawrence and confirms the situation, Peterson enters the room and notices the chocolates, nervously screaming that Michael knows he is strongly allergic to the nuts in the chocolates.

I really liked it for the first hundred pages or so, I found the scene with the elephans incredibly moving, the plot intrigued me and the main antagonist felt like a well-rounded and intelligent villian.

Then it all went downhill I could handle the gore and the rape, I expected it in a book like this. People forget how grim reality is.

It was the sexual gratification the Cheng felt after seeing Nozu with his brains blow I don't understand why so many people love this book, maybe it's just me.

It was the sexual gratification the Cheng felt after seeing Nozu with his brains blown out that made me raise my eyebrows and question if I really could continute to read this book.

There was just no need for it. I guess the author may have been worried that the readers might not hate Cheng enough if he was merely a cunning thief and an intelligent businessman.

This is definately a book written by men for men, there's a lot of feminising of Danny's who is definately a Gary Stu, by the way landcruiser that had me rolling my eyes and the way his sidekick's dialouge was written made me laugh out loud.

They were believable characters - if you find James Bond capable of being real person, that is. The only character I really liked was Nozu and I just told you what happened to him.

I might try in the very far future to read Wilbur Smith's Eygptian novels but for now I can say that I am not impressed. I notice that many people like this novel, though so i'll put it down to a difference in opinion.

Jun 20, Rohit Enghakat rated it liked it Shelves: fiction. It was the first Wilbur Smith book for me. Although nothing spectacular about the plot, the author describes the jungles of Africa beautifully.

The plot is somewhat cliched, but still one can just go on reading it. I would still pick up another Smith novel if it has something new to offer.

Dec 19, Amy rated it it was ok. Usually love Wilbur Smith, however this book got in to some really sick situations.

A little more then I could handle. Sep 03, Sofie rated it really liked it. Very sad but beautiful book. He writes about distant cultures and environments and always succeeds in bringing it close to his readers.

He succeeds yet again in this highly important story about effects of the brutal deforestation in Africa. The book transports the continent to the reader's living room with all of it's sounds, smells and scenery.

While the scenic beauty urges your inner tourist to plan your next vacat Beautiful Story; Hasty Ending The thing I have always liked about Wilbur Smith is his attention to detail.

While the scenic beauty urges your inner tourist to plan your next vacation to the continent, at the same time you feel pity and rage on the political atrocities and their impact on the poor people.

Another plus for the book is the characterization. Each character leaves exactly the desired impact on the reader. You can relate with the protagonists and you absolutely despise the antagonists.

Different African tribes, their sociology and their differences with each other are portrayed effectively.

But as far as my favorite character of the book is concerned, its the forest itself. It has been described with such devotion that I couldn't resist to fall in love with it and I literally cringed to read about each tree it loses and each blow it suffers at the hands of money-hungry devils.

The ending chapters seem hastily concluded. I don't know if its because the first 3 quarters of the book were dragged too much or if the last quarter is not as expanded as it should've been.

Looking at the number of pages, I feel that the middle portion of the book probably could've condensed a bit to give that extra space to the ending parts.

Up till the part where view spoiler [ Daniel agrees to join the uprising against the oppressors hide spoiler ] it all happens too quickly to allow a satisfactory end to those antagonists who you despised so much; you yearn for a stiffer culmination for them; you yearn to feel more heroism in the revolution against them.

Despite the hasty conclusion, the book still manages to increase my respect for Wilbur Smith as a writer.

It sheds a worthy light on the problems of the continent. And it also makes you realize the on-ground hazards of sacrificing the "green" of our planet to accommodate the "grey" of our civilization!

Aug 05, Rana Ahmed rated it liked it. This book -like the other Wilbur Smith book I've read- is a heavily researched book, it highlights a lot of the African culture and problems at the time with detailed spectacular descriptions of African scenery.

I really liked these information on Africa and the tribes of Ubomo, the rain forests and the culture, However this book even though started and ended on fast paced exciting notes, its middle was really slow and at the time seemed going nowhere -some of the information were valuable afterwards but not all- and I already hated Cheng enough without all the extra sickening details about his sick personality.

Jul 05, Sharlene Almond rated it liked it. It was an informative, but brutal read. As with all his books I've read, Wilbur Smith does not shy away from violent details about terrible things that happened in Africa.

I did have to skip some of what was written, as it was too brutal, even for me. However, I do recommend to persevere, as the amount of detail into the history of Africa; and especially the vivid display of fascinating characters.

All his characters are brought to life, you either hate or love them. It is difficult to be in the It was an informative, but brutal read.

It is difficult to be in the middle. I especially love the detail Wilbur Smith goes in to when describing the landscape of Africa.

Hopelessly outdated and gratuitously graphic, particularly in the early stages, this is a boys own adventure story for a much older generation.

Filled with racism the Africans are primitive, corrupt or incompetent, the Asians are deceitful, murderous thieves and sexism every woman gets a description of her breasts and the treacherous, promiscuous woman deservedly dies due to her own stupidity , only the post-colonial British hero can save the day.

Even the ending is stupidly abrupt. The only Hopelessly outdated and gratuitously graphic, particularly in the early stages, this is a boys own adventure story for a much older generation.

The only saving grace is that the author stops short of actually describing the scenes of rape and torture. This is one of Smith's more enjoyable books with a good fast paced story, vivid scenery and settings and characters that you can't help but love, or in some cases hate.

Smith balances the horror and gore of some of the scenes with the emotional and gut-wrenching side well, not to mention showing the brutality of poaching and environmental destruction as it spirals out of control to line the pockets of the few.

The politics of this have the feel of being disturbingly true and the sad familiarity This is one of Smith's more enjoyable books with a good fast paced story, vivid scenery and settings and characters that you can't help but love, or in some cases hate.

The politics of this have the feel of being disturbingly true and the sad familiarity of many of the aspects of the story making this all the more poignant.

This is pretty awful. It's a brutal, sickening violent novel, but the plot is like a 80's action movie. The noble white man comes to save the poor Africans from the depraved evil people.

The bad men are incredibly, unbelievably, over the top evil, unless they're English then it's just mercenary evilness, which is much more acceptable.

I don't know why I kept on reading this, I was hoping there would be something to redeem it, but there really wasn't. While it wasn't the worst book I've read, it This is pretty awful.

While it wasn't the worst book I've read, it was a relief to finally get to the completely abrupt ending. May 16, aadit jain rated it really liked it.

This book was a splendid read. The way African wildlife and nature was described is mind boggling and every single detail about african tribes of hati and uhali is very well put forward and their ways of the forest and sacredness to the mother earth.

It's a rich bundle of knowledge about African ways of justice and injustice. Their rage , cheerfulness and the sharp knowledge and mind which they possess.

Aug 19, Vivian rated it really liked it. This book comes alive with all of the elaborate descriptions of the African scenery and wildlife.

The story is devastating as are many African stories of civil wars and poaching. I found this particular story to be a bit unbelievable as Daniel seemed to survive against the odds time and time again.

I've read one other book by this author and will probably not read another as the grisly descriptions are just a bit too much for my taste.

Jul 13, Snehith rated it really liked it. I have always enjoyed reading books on nature and it's indirect effect on human life.

James Lawrence. Michael, a disturbed young man, the son of an opera singer and a distant father he has only seen once, has an aura of charm about him and displays signs of rationality and intelligence that draws the doctor deeper in to his stories, despite warnings by head nurse Susan Peterson to keep a distance from the patient.

Susan is also his ex-wife. Greene is somewhat distracted by issues in his own life, as tensions with his wife, Olivia, are made worse when she appears at the hospital unannounced.

At the same time, Greene and Peterson are slowly developing an emotional connection. They lost their daughter Rachel in a lake drowning and grew emotionally apart.
