His worst by far. Makes me wonder if you wrote it.

Such a disappointment, DeMille is so much better than the contents of this book. I returned it only half read. Not up to Camel Club standards and the use of explicit sex woven throughout is a sign of diminished talent.

Very long and dragged out. After 300 pages you still have not reached the main objective. Annoying and naïve main characters. Its almost a copy of Up Country, with just the names and places changed. A very poor effort from Mr. DeMille. 2 stars at best.

In the past I have loved all of Mr. DeMille's books. This novel, however, in my opinion dragged on and on. The story kept repeating itself with desert fights between different desert tribes and it is very graphic and disturbing. The entire chapters seemed to be based on one fight after another and the description of the savagery of the tribes. There seemed to be no change to this novel as I neared the middle of the book so I returned it without finishing it. This is the FIRST DeMille novel I returned without reading to the end.

Not sure that I enjoyed this book as much as the Gold Coast, Up Country or the General's Daughter. Read it and judge for yourself. I'd say that it is a two star read as it meanders a bit and takes too long to get to really get into the story of the Quest.

All of Nelson DeMille's novels
are enjoyable. The characters,
outstanding, they come to life
from page one.
Mr. DeMille out did himself with
the Quest.If this one is not his
best,it's dam close. 5 stars
are not enough!
