    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.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Frankly I think the author has a problem. This book is just depressing. I love historical history, but like to see some good in the characters. IMHO Bryce is sick. The part in the book where one of the characters gets her hand broken but the other workers is just sick and not needed for the story. I stopped listening to this book about 4 hours in because it was just one evil person after another.


    What was most disappointing about Bryce Courtenay’s story?

    He is obsessed with suffering


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

    I liked him
