I am an audiobook junkie and this is the 5th Bryce Courtenay book I have "read". By far, one of the best books ever to have been recorded, Humphrey Bower is phenomenal in his ability to bring characters alive and make you love them, or hate them as the case may be. I would highly recommend this and all of the other Bryce Courtenay books! Most definitely worth the listen!!
I have read/listened to many of Daniel Silvas books, and they are all very well written. The narrator on this one however leaves much to be desired. I think with a different reader, say a Scot Brick for example, I would probably rate this 4 or maybe even 5 stars. So if you don't mind much about the narration, then this is an excellent story with a good plot, however if the reader makes a difference, I would suggest another of Mr. Silvas works.
