Although I haven't read the print version, this is a book that is perfect for audio. Set in South Africa, the reader does an excellent job separating the multiple characters in a beautiful accent.
This is an inspiration, riveting tale of how a young boy finds his way in life despite multiple hardships. It also does a wonderful job of exploring racial issues in South Africa from multiple perspectives.
He is able to switch back and forth seamlessly between characters.
This is a story to savor and I was sorry to come to the end of the tale. An example of excellent storytelling.
This was a recommended book or I would have never found it. Whether truly a depiction of the author's childhood and life as a young man or just pure fiction, it was a delightful and thought provoking novel. Highly recommended
Tom Holt's books are in a category by themselves. When you want to smile, take a dip in another world that is clever, entertaining, funny and take the reader to unexpected places--then take a journey into the world of Tom Holt.
All of Tom Holt's books are funny and entertaining--yet not a word is wasted. It all makes no sense and yet perfect sense. This author ties up every loose end in an imaginative, comic ending.
I cannot sum up the info in this book. Just read and enjoy.
I love the narration of this book. This narrator had done both of Tom Holt's books. I cannot listen to a book with poor narration.
Tom Holt is underappreciated in the US and much better known in Great Britain. I discovered him in a London book store and have been enjoying his books ever since. I plan on listening to all of the audio versions of the books I have read as I think his books lend themselves to audio--Very few books make me laugh out loud. Tom Holt consistently does.
Well read and well written. Climbing and a bit of romance--enjoyable to the end.
