I loved the detail of "Patriots" and appreciated the contrast between it and "Survivors". By the time I listened to "Founders" I felt like Mr. Rawles was squeezing the last little bit of life out of that particular strand of characters and circumstances; disappointing. "Expatriates" is a fresh set of characters in different circumstances and places. Much happier with this installment.
I listened to "The Potato Factory" and "Tommo and Hawk" and was fairly hooked on Bryce Courtenay. Four Fires proved to me that Mr. Courtenay is consistent in his ability to deliver well-developed characters and an intricate story every time!
The story is thought provoking especially in light of current events.
The set up. Understanding to what extents political factions will go to achieve their agenda.
The quality of the narration was horrible. I endured it for the sake of the story. I wish the authors/publishers of these sub-culture novels would spend the money to hire a good narrator-they would surly recover that investment through increased sales.
