This book really demonstrates "the power of two". The writing of Bryce Courtenay and the wonderful narration of Humphrey Bower.
I’m relatively new to Bryce Courtenay’s expansive storytelling. I read The Potato Factory jut a few months ago and was taken by his methodical and detailed style. The Power of One also pulled me into his world and had me connecting with his characters and reacting emotionally to the trials, tribulations and triumphs they experienced.
The Power of One left me with a single disappointment; the unfulfilling ending. In some ways it was like Peekay’s experience with Doc’s death. I felt like there was no time to say ‘good bye’. It was just suddenly over.
But I leave the book engaged with the characters, amused by Courtenay’s clever turns of phrase and enriched by the stories within the novel. And I was again captivated by Humphrey Bower and his talent for bringing Courtenay's characters to life.
