    Story
    "Nothing like a good race book."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dust and Glory to be better than the print version?

    Humphrey Bower, once again, brings the characters to life with his amazing voice. For this reason, the audio book would be better than reading the book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Murphy. What a great wit. He could make any serious situation funny with the "quick ones".


    What about Humphrey Bower’s performance did you like?

    It is the reason I chose this book and he did his usual fantastic job of keeping me interested in the story through his many voices of the characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Murphy and his buds created many moments for me. My favorite was towards the end by the river.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book. The characters, the many voices, the story, and the wit. I hope Humphrey Bower reads more books.

    Story
    "Fun, exciting, well read"

    Humphrey Bower is the narrator; 'nough said!!

    Not a challenging book, just an action packed, roller-coaster ride around 1950s Australia.
    Well written, beautifully read, I loved it.
