I just wanted to say "astounding brillance" Bryce has done it again. Keeping me on the edge of my seat. I really love becoming apart of the book being able to picture it in my mind. Being able to picture Tommo in the wild. Listening to both Tommo and Hawks recount of what happened whilst they where kidnapped. Then being their with both of them as they help the Mauri in their fight. I particularly liked the scene where tommo is laying in the water after the battle I felt that, that was a pivotal point. I loved both Characters but I can't help lean towards Hawk as he is this gentle giant that wants only the best for people and fights for the suppressed and his dedication to his brother over everthing else in Hawks life. I was particualarly surprised at the ending, however I liked the fact that Tommo gets what life is about. Bryce is I would say one of the best writers that I have come across. I remember Bryce saying " I never learnt anything out of history books" And I can say thanks to Bryce I have learnt more out of these books than I have ever from history books about my own country. I have listen now to all the audio titles and I have not been dissappointed on any of them. I can't wait for the last in the triology of Solomons. Also waiting for the others that I know he has written as well. Thanks Bryce
After listening to "The Power of one" and "Tandia" which where brilliant and signing up with audible. This was the first place I headed was to Bryce Courtenay section. I listened to "The Potato Factory. And to take one of Mr. Courtenays comments I have learnt more out of story books than history books. Being Australian and learning about the penial colonies allowed me to have a picture in my mind whilst this wonderful book was being beautifully read by Humphrey Bower. Really encapsulated it all for me and bringing me to a new level of understanding. I like others would like to know what the other 2 parts are to Mr. Courtenays gift, that he has so beautifully given Australia. The most throughtful and gracious gift. That we as a Country are the most fortunate to be the recipients of. And now the decision of what to listen to of Mr. Courtenay's next
