Is it truly possible to be bored to death whilst driving to work listening to a story? Yes! The monotone ramblings in my ears by the narrator Kirby who droned on and on was just too much! I had to call it quits.
Predictable from the very first chapter and when I crawled my way to the end clutching the steering wheel praying for release, guess what? It was predictable! There seems to be a formula for writing and no more thinking outside the box - A shame really.
I was enthralled by the complex characters and quickly drawn into their lives and how the war affected them before it began, during and after. How I had quickly fallen in love with the strong headed sister who becomes my hero.
I have read this book twice and will happily read it again. From an educational point of view I also learnt a lot about a war I heard of but knew little about.
A great, great read narrated by the wonderful Robin Miles
Everyone, especially Africans should read this book to understand the evils of intolerance as we all move forward in life. We should preach the word that to deny another human being equal rights just because we do like or understand them is pure evilness at its height. The Nazi’s intolerance towards Jews, The Africana’s intolerance towards Africans, the so called Christians intolerance towards gays and so on and so forth. A great book from a great man and leader in the struggle for equality for ALL South Africans.
