Geraldine Brooks tells the life of King David through the voice of Nathan, his prophet and long-time companion. The story opens towards the end of David's long reign when he asks Nathan to record his story for posterity. David even gives Nathan access to his brothers, first wife, and a few others so the chronicle can be complete. Although the biblical language and word usage got the story off to a slow start, it did pick up as David's life story unfolded. The result is a picture of a Biblical figure with all his strengths and his flaws.

Not for the squeamish, this hard hitting account of a brutal, biblical king will either leave you fascinated, disgusted or both.
