Eureka, after 25 years i decided to re-read Macbeth, my confused understanding of the play was transformed into an understanding i will never forget. The narration was exquisit i have finally conquored MacBeth.
Sadly the audio version sounded a little false, although I appreciate the attempt at trying to give the narration an authentic feel, I did not enjoy the false accent used and in places I noticed that the voice did not hold true to the true accent of Zelda, Madiba and others. I could clearly hear that this book was not narrated by an Afrikaans speaking person, but once I accepted this fact I chose to ignore the voice and listen to the words.
Goodbye Bafana and Tomorrow is another Country
The book is well written, it depicts a great man and an honest account of a person who served him for so long. Moments in the book are very touching and those of us who lived through the transformation can attest to the feelings Zelda had. The bitterness shown towards Zelda towards the end, was sad but also a clear indication of a family trying to reclaim their Father and Grandfather. It must have been hard on the family who had to sacrifice Madiba to an apartheid jail and then once released to the world. Get out the tissues this account is a roller coaster
Zelda, you served Tata well. Your background was not conducive to the job, but you transformed and became part of history. Our late President would have been proud of you. Criticism will come, but your account is beautifully told and anyone who offers criticism on you, is doing so, out of jealousy and spite. I heard about the book on Christmas day and hey presto I finished it today. Great book, Jy is regtig waar n opregte Suid Afrikaaner. Jy hoef geensins terug te staan vir niemand hie

I am not into this kind book. I bought it as I haed heard Dean Koonz is a great author. I can confirm this he truly is, I enjoyed the book and look forward to getting more of his works.
This is the worst book I have ever bought, in fact so bad that I am demanding my money back. Utter Rubish, I mean it.

if you are a john grisham fan, like me, then this book is for you. Fast paced and exciting, the book outlines the rise, fall, torment and final peace of a small time lawyer misused by large corporations to fulfil their own goals.
