  • April Fool's Day

    This is Bryce Courtenay's moving tribute to his son, Damon, a hemophiliac who died from medically acquired AIDS on April 1, 1991, at the age of 24. April Fool's Day is controversial, painful and heartbreaking, yet has a gentle humor. It is also life-affirming, and, above all, a testimony to the incredible regenerative strength of love: how when we confront our worst, we can become our best. This tragic yet uplifting story will change the way you think.

    I usually read Jodi Picoult in hard copy books, but thoroughly enjoyed having this one read to me. Jodi has a fabulous writing style. I highly recommend all her books.

    Here is the story of two families, branches of the Solomons, transported to an alien land. Both branches eventually grow rich and powerful. But through three generations, the families never, for one moment, relinquish their hatred for each other. This novel is also the story of Australia, from its beginnings to its coming of age as a nation.

    The last book in the Trilogy and again, I couldn't put it down. Humphrey Bower is a great narrator. All the books were very graphic and exciting. Can't wait to read my next Bryce Courtney book.

    The second book in the Trilogy and it certainly didn't let me down. Equally as good as the first. The reader makes the characters seem very real.

    Always leave a little salt on the bread. Ikey Solomon's favorite saying is also his way of doing business, and in the business of thieving he's very successful indeed. Ikey's partner in crime is his mistress, the forthright Mary Abacus, until misfortune befalls them. They are parted and each must make the harsh journey from thriving nineteenth century London to the convict settlement of Van Diemen's Land.
