A lot like his other books, The Story of Danny Dunn might be a good place to start listening to Bryce C's plethora of audible books simply because it isn't quite as long. It was written towards the end of his long writing career and has themes very similar to other books in his oeuvre.
There are other better and much longer listens but the new Courtenay listener may want to work up to them.
Glad I heard it, just so I can say I've listened to all he's written and worth a credit.
Definately, this is an excellent Australian story
Danny Dunn, because he is the main character
Hard to pick a favourite, the whole story is excellent
Always wonderul to have an Ausie narrator, book was not as entertaining as other novels from Bryce Courtenay.
Nothing stands out in this novel, which is definately not one of Bryce Courtenay's best. It was ok to listen to but certainly not rivetting - which is what you would normally expect from this author.
Very good as always
I downloaded this particular book after hearing the author Bryce Courtenay interviewed on the radio. It sounded great. I have enjoyed other books that he has written. It was a great story, with a very unexpected ending. The author has a talent for being able to describle something or someone in such a way that it comes alive to the reader. My only criticism is that these descriptions can become a bit long winded and tedious.

The Characters are terrific and the images are umber like sepia prints. Again, as I have noticed before BC really does tend to invest too much of his time in training us in the art of 'love'. Why he has the predeliction I have no idea so if those moments bore you, like they did me, skip on for the book does meander through the period with a richness that is so Australian. If he were a painter he would be a McCubbin.
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
I have really enjoyed most of the book. It was a great story, with a very unexpected ending. The ending left me flat and I thought soiled the story.
This like the others I've read so far has a great, strong characters with morals but real struggles and who regardless make mistakes and aren't perfect you love them and I'm always for the underdog myself.
Courtenay is my favorite author, and in general I don't have a favorite in any category.
I have yet to listen to one of Courtenay's books that I didn't love. Bower's performance was outstanding as usual and he can sing! I liked the way he dealt with PTSD. I tell my patients that it is the gift that keeps on giving and this story is exemplary in bringing home that point. Few people really understand how war changes soldiers;
