    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.

    What made the experience of listening to The Potato Factory the most enjoyable?

    Narration was perfect, nothing boring hearing the great vocabulary.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It has been a while since I have listened to such a great story that also educated me about the era and the process of the English getting deported to Australia and the struggles once there. It is such a well written book, so different from the authors pushing out a new one each year.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I cannot think of many scenes that were not my favorite -the lives of Ike, Bob Marley, the two Marys and even Ann Gower. There is so much woven into it.

    The formation of the characters has been done superbly.


    Any additional comments?

    This is my favorite listen since Cutting for Stone.
