    Story
    (711)

    The four fires in this story are passion, religion, warfare, and fire itself. While there are many more fires that drive the human spirit, love being perhaps the brightest flame of all, it is these four that have moulded us most as Australian people. The four fires give us our sense of place and, for better or for worse, shape our national character.

    Story
    Where does Four Fires rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This even supersedes Power of One, which I absolutely loved, but only just!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The whole art of integrating different characters,different viewpoints,different dialects is made to look easy when listening to this book. Bryce Courtenany brings his characters alive and with such compelling storylines that it's hard to stop listening.


    Have you listened to any of Humphrey Bower’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I had already read this book an age ago but on discovering Humphrey Bowers ability to bring other books alive with his truly wonderful accents and nuances with each different character,was not disappointed when listening to this performance,absolutely one of his best to date!


    If you could take any character from Four Fires out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    It would be wonderful to be at dinner with the whole of the extended Maloney family, to be able to watch the interactions going on all around and feeling that you know them so well due to the depth of the authors and narrators performance
