    Tandia is a child of all Africa: half Indian, half African, beautiful and intelligent, she is only sixteen when she is first brutalized by the police. Her fear of the white man leads her to join the black resistance movement. With her in the fight for justice is the one white man Tandia can trust, the welterweight champion of the world, Peekay. Now he must fight their common enemy in order to save both their lives.

    Thomas Andrews says: "Thanks for this wonderful collaboration"
    "Great narrator but hideously abridged."

    What about Humphrey Bower’s performance did you like?

    Humphrey Bower is the best Australian reader I've heard. Period.


    Any additional comments?

    Tandia, although darker, is a worthy follow up to The Power of One, telling the story of life in apartheid South Africa from the other perspective and following on with Peekay's story.

    Sadly, despite what Audible have been told by the publisher, this audiobook is definitely abridged. I've read the hard copy before and was surprised when both minor and pivotal scenes were cut. Further more, a number of plot points that are edited out are constantly referred back to later in the story – enough to cause confusion in a listener who lacked prior knowledge of the story.

    A very lazy job of editing a very well performed audiobook.
