    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.

    Story
    Would you listen to Solomon's Song again? Why?

    Yes, but in sequence with the other two books...to spend time with Victoria and Ben as they pick up where the last generation left off.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Solomon's Song?

    The last page, but that would be a spoiler.


    What about Humphrey Bower’s performance did you like?

    What's not to like? He's astonishingly gifted at voicing very different characters. I'll look for him again and again.


    If you could take any character from Solomon's Song out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Hawk. Who wouldn't take a seven foot tall, face-tattoo'd pacifist to dinner?


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend the series: it's a masterwork of the historical family saga variety.
