    Would you try another book from Harry Harrison and/or Eric Michael Summerer?

    Yes


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably not.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was OK, but was set in the 90s before Y2K and thus was hard to relate to today,

    Story
    (2324)

    Always leave a little salt on the bread. Ikey Solomon's favorite saying is also his way of doing business, and in the business of thieving he's very successful indeed. Ikey's partner in crime is his mistress, the forthright Mary Abacus, until misfortune befalls them. They are parted and each must make the harsh journey from thriving nineteenth century London to the convict settlement of Van Diemen's Land.

    Jan says: "Powerfully told story... but a warning"
    "Title missleading, but a very worthwhile listen"

    Story
    Where does The Potato Factory rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I rate this right up near the top.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like how Bryce Courtenay links the different characters and ties loose ends together except at the end where it seems he left room for another story.


    What does Humphrey Bower bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Humphrey Bower has a great voice variety and uses them in a way that fits the characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I think it is a little too long for me to take in one sitting and there are some violent scenes that can be disturbing and a break is good.


    Any additional comments?

    The character descriptions are so detailed that they seem like actual persons.
