    Brutally kidnapped and separated in childhood, Tommo and Hawk are reunited at the age of 15 in Hobart Town. Together, they escape their troubled pasts and set off on a journey into manhood. From whale hunting in the Pacific to the Maori wars of New Zealand, from the Rocks in Sydney to the miners' riots at the goldfields, Tommo and Hawk must learn each other's strengths and weaknesses in order to survive.

    Where does Tommo and Hawk rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    You have to start with The Potato Factory, listen to it first. After that 5 star listen you will want to immediately listen to this one. It does not disappoint. Until I started listening to this story my favorite narrator was Frank Muller. He took Grisham, Stephen King and Pat Conroy's masterpieces to another level. I thought no one could top his ability. The combination of Bryce Courtenay and Humphrey Bower has taken audio books may pass that level. I've spent hundreds of hours listening to audio books, this series is my favorite by far.


    What other book might you compare Tommo and Hawk to and why?

    This is a history of Australia told and performed by a stellar team of artists. Bryce writes like Charles Dickens. You really could compare his writing to classics like Oliver Twist, David Copperfield, etc.


    Which character – as performed by Humphrey Bower – was your favorite?

    Ikey Solomon is my favorite character from an audio book. Humphrey Bower nails this character.


    Who was the most memorable character of Tommo and Hawk and why?

    Both Tommo and Hawk are memorable


    Any additional comments?

    The story has many layers that are easy to keep track of. The writing is superb and the characters are etched in your memory for all time. This is one hell of a tale. Very much worth a credit.
