I loved The Potato Factory and Tommo and Hawk. I also liked Solomon's Song but it didn't seem to hang together with the first two books. Courtenay should have written a separate book about the First World War and had the third book continued with the saga started in the first two books. A good share of the third book was Ben and the war,little about the Hawk/Benjamin, Joshua/Ben relationahip and the business.
This book is as other Bryce Courtenay's books - a very good read, with various points of view from his protagists, well researched, and just plain interesting. The narrator is my very favorite. As for the "unchristian" statement in another review, I think the reviewer was pretty off base and perhaps should stick to fairy tales.
