Read full description of the books Thirteen Hours:Thirteen Hours Review – Redux
I attended a Deon Meyer book signing this weekend and it played a big part in my decision to expand this review. At the time of writing this, Thirteen Hours is the only Meyer book I’ve read, but that is definitely about to change.
I’m not changing my rating, but I think some perspective is in order. South Africa is a country with eleven official languages, which should give you some idea of the cultural diversity. Why is this important? Meyer takes great snapshots of the inner workings of SA culture in his writing. He’s truly what we would call “proudly South African” and I think he’s doing a commendable job of bringing Cape Town to overseas readers. He also happens to be quite a nice guy.
You’ve read Nesbo, Larsson and the like: now it’s time to read some Meyer!
