This is one of the best books I have read or listened to, and one of the absolute best narrators. I will look for more by Bryce Courtenay. I will also look for more by this narrator, Humphrey Bower, who did one of the best narrations I've ever experienced.
I loved the hearing the African names and words pronounced properly. The narrator gave an astounding performance and never took me "out of the story" but rather brought each character to life.
All the narrators are excellent -- they make the characters come alive and add depth to the characters, never detracting from the story like some narrators do. I think I enjoyed this listen more that I would have if I had read the book because the narrators were just so real. I loved the main characters. Humorous, heartbreaking, uplifting, maddening, all in all a truly moving story. I came away with an understanding of the era and life in the South during that time. So sad it ended.
