    Tandia is a child of all Africa: half Indian, half African, beautiful and intelligent, she is only sixteen when she is first brutalized by the police. Her fear of the white man leads her to join the black resistance movement. With her in the fight for justice is the one white man Tandia can trust, the welterweight champion of the world, Peekay. Now he must fight their common enemy in order to save both their lives.

    Thomas Andrews says: "Thanks for this wonderful collaboration"
    "Quite possibly one of the best books ever!!!"
    Overall

    This was the fifth book I have read by Bryce Cortenay. The Potato Factory trilogy really got me hooked. I put off listening for almost a year, but after listening to Shantaram, also narrated by Bowers, I went ahead and took the plunge. The combination of Cortenay and Bowers is simply unbeatable. The Power of One was really good, but the follow up, Tandia was greatness all the way up the last line. I highly recommend this book...you won't be disappointed

    Sturkey, a former Marine "Bonnie-Sue" HMM-265 helicopter pilot, combines fascinating detail with grim realism in this eloquent saga of Marines at war. Weaving actual military records with personal accounts from the helicopter crews, he breathes life into the daily struggle of the soldier.

    Peter says: "Bonnie-Sue (Unabridged)"
    "Boring!!"
    Overall

    As entertainment, on a scale of 1-10, this book gets a 2. It is like listening to a textbook rather than a novel. On top of that, the narrator is horrible...Don't waste your time or money on this.
