  • Four Fires

    Story
    (759)

    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
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    A fantastic story weaving though decades and lives presenting an incredible window into the family and life in Australia. If you like James Michener or Wilbur Smith, this should be on your list. I immediately downloaded one of his other books - The Potato Factory. Looking forward to another great listen.

    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.

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

    Having been an Audible member since 2004, I have a large library and this will definitely rank in my top 10 reads. The rich characters, the incredible language and the engaging story combined with an excellent reader makes this worth every minute.
