I really enjoyed this book. It was entertaining and I will certainly read more books by this author.
My first book by this author and narrator and I just loved every minute of it. Thomas is by far my favourite character - although he struggles with his own hurt he manages to be both compassionate and dependable.
I enjoyed this series so much that I have listened to it twice. I did not enjoy book six as much as the others as I had become accustomed to Marguerite Gavin as narrator (who does a sterling job!) and I just could not get used to the change in narrator. I found the incorrect pronunciation of names and places distracting but I stuck with it as I wanted to continue on with the series. Well worth a listen!
I spent a lot of time trying to bond with this book - but it was just horrible. The narrator puts the emphasis in all the wrong places and it just drove me crazy.
Another wonderful book by Bryce Courtenay and what can I say about Humphrey Bower - the man is a master at bringing the characters to life. My husband and I lived in Singapore for 2 years and it was great that the story was set there. Thanks for another very enjoyable listen!!
I thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful classic. The narrator is a master. It is hard to stop listening and this is certainly a book that I will listen to more than once. I will be looking for more books read by Martin Jarvis.
I have listened to the whole series and loved every minute of it! I was sad when it ended and cannot wait for more!
What a great story.
Total escapism - and totally enjoyable.
What a great book - it is wonderful to be able to escape into this world!
