    If the world as we know it ended tomorrow, would you survive? When the United States suffers a major socioeconomic collapse, a power vacuum sweeps the globe. A newly radicalized Islamic government rises to power in Indonesia, invading the Philippines, East Timor, Papua New Guinea, and finally Northern Australia. No longer protected by American military interests, Australia must repel this invasion alone.

    Story

    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.

    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

    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 begins on opening day of the NFL season, when bullets begin to rain down upon the upper deck of a packed football stadium. A panic stampede ensues, leading to mass casualties. The alleged sniper is found holding a smoking assault rifle, and is killed by a police marksman. One week later, Congress bans the private possession of all semi-automatic assault rifles. Gun owners are given one week to turn in their semi-automatic rifles, or face a five year mandatory sentence.

    B. Lambert says: "Great story if you can get past the performance"
    "Great Story Abysmal Narration"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Enemies Foreign and Domestic the most enjoyable?

    The story is thought provoking especially in light of current events.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Enemies Foreign and Domestic?

    The set up. Understanding to what extents political factions will go to achieve their agenda.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    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.
