I have not read the print version, but the narrator is very skilled he brings to life the full character of Ikey Solomon.
My favorite character is Ikey Solomon. The man is a down right scoundrel, but you find yourself rooting for him.
He brings to life all of the characters and really gives a voice to Ikey.
Salt on the Bread
This book and the later two in the trilogy are definitely worth the time to listen to.
Imaginative, Colorful, Dark
Any book where someone goes back in time to change history.
The successful play production
The loss of love. If you read it there are numerous interpretations of this.
This was a fun book to listen to.
This would be number 2 all time, Sandwiched between The Passage by Justin Cronin at #1 and 11/22/63 by Stephen King.
The first chapter. It shocks you into understanding, this is going to be a freaky ride.
Pennywise the Clown, just down right scary.
Like every guy that does this review, it would have to be Bev.
Long listen, but definitely worth the time. I read 11/22/63 before this book and it referenced Derry Maine. When I saw the town that It took place in was Derry Maine I just had to revisit the town and it was definitely worth the time.
This was a good listen, but unfortunately for Bryce Courtenay I have listened to Stephen King's It and The Passage by Justin Cronin, one (It) that is a down right masterpiece and The Passage which is probably one of the best books written in recent years.
The end. I felt like Bryce Courtenay was on a deadline to finish and said, "Well Mate, I think that is just about all the time I have to write." There is not a finish to half of the story.
He brings Ben to life. Thank you for really bringing all of the characters through out the book to life, if you happen to see this.
Yes, but it is easy to listen sporadically and still understand what is going on.
Ending left me wanting more. In truth, if I didn't know it was just a trilogy, I would have thought there was another book.
The characters are vibrant and full of depth.
There is a character that dies that you find yourself missing all the way through the third book of the trilogy.
Tommo. He is continually tormented by the mongrels, but he has a constant and continual internal battle with himself that drives the story line.
Yes, I did not cry, but numerous times I felt my heart sink as a could foresee the demise of some of the characters. In some cases it happened and in others it did not, but as mentioned before, one of the deaths was extremely sad.
This was definitely the most enjoyable of the trilogy, but all of the books are a great listen.
