The book starts really quick and pulls you into it rather fast. The narrator is very good and her voice seems to become more entwined into the story. I'm in my thirties and loved the book. It took me about a week to get through it and thoroughly enjoyed it. I listen to audio books in transit and found myself taking longer to get to places so that I can just hear a little more of the story. Gripping. I rated the book a 5 even though there was a small discrepancy in detail which certainly goes to show how entertaining it was. I will definitely get the rest of the books in the series!
A heartbreaking story
Juicy Fruit Mambo was very memorable firstly because he's a character of a similar name in Jack of Diamonds but mostly because of his utter loyalty and humility to Tandia.
This story is a rather true depiction of what life was like in South Africa for a non-white person. It leaves a bitter taste in your mouth... The story reminds the world of the reason for the hate bred in the hearts of those that lived on that piece of land at the bottom of the African continent. It is a reminder of how unreasonable humans can be, and have been. There is more than one side to every story and Bryce plays a pivotal role in portraying these sides. An artful story that draws you into the depths of human hatred... and then love.
I already have. A bunch of short success stories are always a great way to ease into an early morning run (when your bed is way more comfy!).
Both voice overs were engaging and seemed natural.
Probably not. This was a book recommended by a friend so I forced myself to listen to at least the first 8 chapters.
Winds of War. Already bought and downloaded it and looking forward it.
Slightly over done.
