Humphrey Bower brought the massive range of characters to life, so you laugh and cry and suffer with them.
Ike's lessons to his boys (I am trying not to remember the many harrowing moments - I pray they fade with time!!)
As good as and better because there were more characters. Each was so uniquely spoken that a film could not have made clearer who was who.
It is too long for that - but oh my did I get quite fit - it is one of the only times I was happy to stay on the treadmill as I listened.
Can't wait for next book..
The yarn, the characters, the pace of action...nothing I didn't love....
Grandpa Chook - loyal, clever, just wonderful way to tell of hope and willpower.
Humphrey characterises everyone brilliantly. Not fair to choose.
Gideon - then he could stay over!
Story makes you think about some things differently. And it was a most enjoyable yarn - sure it was far-fetched - but that's what makes it entertaining.:-)
Griff - right proper lad!
What choices would you make?
Thanks for the other reviews which helped me choose this book.
