A Fortunate Life | [A. B. Facey]

A Fortunate Life

Born in 1894, Facey lived the rough frontier life of a sheep farmer, survived the gore of Gallipoli, raised a family through the Depression and spent 60 years with his beloved wife, Evelyn. Despite enduring hardships we can barely imagine today, Facey always saw his life as a "fortunate" one. A true classic of Australian literature, his simply written autobiography is an inspiration. It is the story of a life lived to the full - the extraordinary journey of an ordinary man.

    Story
    "A BRILLIANT life story, well written, I loved it."
    If you could sum up A Fortunate Life in three words, what would they be?

    Brilliant. I wouldn't have described all of his life as "fortunate" but A.B sure did. A fantastic story!!!!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Fortunate Life?

    Meeting his wife to be after receiving socks from her whilst at war.


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

    Hard one to answer but he did a BRILLIANT job!!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    No idea.


    Any additional comments?

    A must read!! Hard to stop listening!!!

    "Very interesting"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was ok.....it kept me going because of the many different jobs and people this young man met during his life.


    If you’ve listened to books by A. B. Facey before, how does this one compare?
