I hated this book for the first three hours or so---very upsetting marital fighting! But once it takes off, this is quite a study of two people and their lives in the 50s. I finished this book a week ago and still thinking of April and Frank! I want to see the movie now and see how it compares.
Great historical fiction! Strong female characters. Story line is terrific! Well worth a credit!
Characters you won't forget soon!
I really enjoyed this book. Very funny and charming. The narrator was perfect for this book.
I usually read alot of blood and guts and this book was a nice diversion. Plus I love
Indian authors---their humor is fabulous! Worth a credit for sure!
My second Greg Iles book--what a writer! The story line just flowed and flowed--never bogged down. Dick Hill has always been one of my favorite narrators. He brought this book to life! Lately I have "gotten into" Holocost books---a subject we never should allow to drift away from history. Very powerful book and characters not to be forgotten soon.
Yes I would recommend and have recommended many times!
The ending---say no more!
Grover Gardner is in my Top-5-Narrarators. He is always excellent!
Get this book---you will not be sorry! Use those credits!
I HAVE TO SAY: NO. Way too romantic for me. Don't make men like Julian! I was glad when this was over. I purchased this book because it was a time-travel book.
No---my friends would shudder!
"Modern Kate" was a hoot! She ran Julian around like no tomorrow!
Sex scenes were just graphic enough!
Yes indeed---buy something gritty!
The whole book is a
Both are excellent and that is why I gave them five stars. Humphrey Bower is the narrarator
for all of Bryce Courteney's books. Outstanding performances!
Please check out all of the books by this author. You won't be disappointed!
People who love to read about tourture (spelling??) and violence should love this.
No way! I have read this genre for years and this one really upset me. I had to turn to the last hour to find out what happened in the story. I apparently did not miss much and spared myself hearing all that violence!
He was perfect. I gave him a
I was angry about the over-the-top violence that was really not necessary. Maybe men will like this book. It started as a good story but got out of control.
This books takes off right from the start. Smart, funny dialog. I want to check out her other books in this series.
The narrarator was perfect for this book!
I laughed out loud all through the book!
It's rare to find an author who is both tender and funny! I plan to buy other books in the series!
I bought this book when it had a higher rating. The only reson I did not skip to the end is that there are so many charcters, I wanted to know what happened to a few of them. Skip this book is right!
My husband is a great fan of Wilbur Smith. So I gave him a listen. Obviously he's a fabulous writer and storyteller. However, be warned--this story is very graphic and violent. So I only gave four stars for that reason.
