Fantastic narrator and a great story, even if the hero is too brilliant to be true! Loved it and will be trying more by the same author/narrator combination
"Epic story beautifully told"
A real page turner of a book that is loosely based around the authors own experiences as a young boy growing up in South Africa during the second world war. One of the best books I've listened to in ages. Great story, wonderfully narrated.
"Must have a copy of this book"
Wonderful!! .I enjoyed this book, very positive and very powerful. Superb Reading, narrator really did a great job. I love the book very much and highly recommend this book
Having just written a poor review of Brother Fish, I thought I had better do the right thing and write what I thought of this BryceC. It couldn't have been different! A fabulous, engaging novel. Loved the characters, and was so sad to lose them. Rooted for PJ all the way and grew with him. Totally absorbing history lesson at the same time without being hammered home. Story crafted beautifully. Hey, and I don't even like boxing - but those scenes were compelling. One of my favourite listens!
"A must for every listener!"
FABULOUS! I found this book quite by accident, having never heard of the author or the story and purchased this book merely on the strength of the personal reviews that I read and I was not disapointed. Quite simply a beautiful story, a hidden gem and one that I would recommend to every listener.
this book is ok. yes, it is a good story but i found it extremely predictable. I kept guessing then all my guesses were right. i have finished it but didnt leave me thinking, from the very good reviews, may be i expected too much and found myself setting the speed to1.5. getting it finished but the end wasn't a suprise too.
"A new author to try."
I found this author when on a trip to Australia- a super read- try "Jessica" also- which I found to be his best work of all! IJessica also available as a film- so should this one!.
From the outset this was a great book. History lesson and life lesson all in one. What a fabulous narrator.
Fantastic read. I have really enjoyed the excellent performance of the reader here, who brings the characters to life wonderfully. I have listened to lots of spoken books, and this is one of the best.
Compulsive listening, beautifully read.
