    (837)

    The four fires in this story are passion, religion, warfare, and fire itself. While there are many more fires that drive the human spirit, love being perhaps the brightest flame of all, it is these four that have moulded us most as Australian people. The four fires give us our sense of place and, for better or for worse, shape our national character.

    Story
    Where does Four Fires rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Up there with the best of them I've listen to this 3 times and read the book love it


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Four Fires?

    Several but that would be giving away the story and it's better to be surprised rather than in the know


    Have you listened to any of Humphrey Bower’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No , at first I didn't like the Aussie accent and I am a Aussie then the Jewish and Irish accent were believable so I guess it depends on how Aussie you want your character to be


    Who was the most memorable character of Four Fires and why?

    Gotta love Nancy


    Any additional comments?

    This book returned a lot of memories for me Flinders Lane, the dunny man, Fires and there awful outcomes, and yet how they also bring life back, How many soliders who fought in all wars are never truly appreciated and often forgotten. How small communities can by working together can achieve so much. The fact I read it four times tells you it's worth it.!
