    "Digging in downunder"

    After seeing the film on which the book was based I had expected to enjoy this reading. But Humphrey Bower nailed it. Accents aren't always an easy go for
    listeners even when they are face to face. Bower manages to being the characters to life and you don't need to have a single line repeated. A fun love story within in a story of an unlikely writer and two friends that took a lot of time coming to admit they care. The wry sense of humor which creeps in unexpectedly is the cream in the cake.
