I kept skipping forward to try to find something interesting in this audiobook. I hated the graphic sex and the awful violence. I also had a hard time sympathizing with a man who would attack a woman, regardless of the provocation. I just can't enjoy a book when I am repulsed by the main character! I really couldn't find anything at all to like about him.
Pointless, endless, dreary ... don't trouble yourself! I'll hesitate before I get any more audiobooks by this author.
I have listened to a number of Bryce Courtenay's audiobooks, and I didn't like this one nearly as much as I did the others. The characters in his other books are quite a bit more admirable than the ones in this book. I was disappointed and a bit repelled by the whole story. I only finished it because I kept hoping it would improve.
I absolutely loved this audiobook and have listened to it three times since I got it last year. When I run out of new audiobooks to listen to, I just pick this one up again!
I could really empathize with Smithie and admire him for the way he handled life's tragedies when they were thrust upon him. I really look forward to listening to more by this author!
I absolutely loved this audiobook. It showed the real George Bush ... the kind, moral, human guy who was our president for four short years. I laughed at his innocence in his first letters and cried when his little Robin died. I laughed again at the end, hearing about his life as an average guy, gousing at the grandkids for leaving the freezer door ajar and melting all the ice cream. I came away with a new understanding and deeper respect for him. After listening to the audiobook, I had to go to the book store and buy the book just to have it in my library. I would recommend it to anybody.
I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook. The characters were well drawn and had distinct personalities. The story was compelling and kept me wanting to listen to more! I liked this one a lot more than the last John Grisham I listened to, which about put me to sleep!
