Perhaps I have just read too many of her books, but there is definitely something missing when listening to this one. I truly enjoyed the first 9 of this series (I read those in print). They are laugh-out-loud books.
I loved this book. Bryce Courtenay has a remarkable story to tell and he does it with such depth and clarity that you feel the characters are a part of your life. The story is so well written and read, I would listen to it again just to hear Humphrey Bower. Mr. Bower has the exceptional ability to bring you right into the story with each character. It is as if you are there. The story's interspersed subtle humor is just enough to for you to find yourself smiling, but when the tide turns you are engrossed in the moment and feel the character's pain. I will definitely read Mr. Courtenay again and listen to Mr. Bower read.
