"Humphrey Bower is brilliant....[Tandia] will resonate in the hearts and minds of listeners long after the final chapter." (AudioFile Magazine )
The entire book
The Power of One, just as unbelievable as this one ...
Tandia herself, because of the hardship she had to endure.
I would definitely recommend this audio book. The story picks up right where The Power of One left off--the narrator is, again, brilliant and makes the story comes alive.
I loved Doc -- absolutle!
They were all wonderfully portrayed. I guess my favorite was Doc.
I would take Peekay and Tandia together so they could have some quality time with each other!
This book comes alive with the narration. I got a good sense of South Africa during apartheid and how it affected everyone's lives.
I enjoyed the book enormously, many years ago. I enjoyed this performance of the book just as well - which is high praise indeed.
The Power of One. Also magnificent!
An African story; a human story; a great story.
It is by far one of my favourites.
I like that it is the sequel to the Power of One and follows the story of one boy into adulthood while expanding into different characters and storylines. It is set in a really interesting and dreadful time in South Africa's history, to read or hear this book is to really imagine what it was like at the time.
He is fantastic, enough said.
Yes. and for 26 hours, that is a big ask.
Read this book.
As good as Power of One, perhaps better even. I can't decide, but i almost think i liked Tandia more. I especially enjoyed the characters of Mama Tequila and Juicyfruit Mambo. Loved them! Great story.
Yes, because it is a most entertaining book. I looked forward to listening to this every night
When Tandia told PK she loved him
Yes I listened to The Power of One and it was also just as good, i would rate them both the same - Fantastic
Mamma Tequilla because she was such a colourful character
Loved it. Not quite as much as "power of one" but it was well worth the read. I loved the story of peekay continuing. This book has its share of profanity and also some difficult scenes involving rape and abuse. If you were ok to read the "dragon tattoo" series of books then you can easily handle the scenes in Tandia.
Bottom line I loved "Power of one" and "Tandia" .
perhaps, but I'd be very wary
The characterizations were good, but the exaggerated emphasis indicating shouting was far too prevalent
Even with all of the words, the book seemed like more of an outline than a novel. The characters are never truly developed. fortunately the characters of Peekay and Hymie are established from the first book. This was really a disappointment. On the other hand, many never have a book as good as The Power of One.
loved the ending to the Power Og One.. narration of .. well shocking.. how does he do it? switching from Irish to Indian to Boer in less than two minutes of reading. PeeKay is a wonderful character..one who can box and practice law at the same time.. listening is great but I have to pick up the book to see how you spell unshobie shobie ungelosi and I want to hear the Africans sing.. Courtenay and Bower make tears come to your eyes.. so be careful driving and listening.. fabulous. wonderful, enchanting all rolled into one..you won't be sorry.. but get The Power of One first.
