Liked Humphrey Bower's accent much better than the woman narrator. He is simply brilliant and renders Courtenay's books just sublimely.
I'd give his portion of the narration a 10 if I could!
Female narrator was so bad that I could not listen to the story. And I am usually a huge Courtenay fan.
Humphrey Bower: great as usual
I loved all the different stories. I loved how the story was told, it made it very real. You could really feel the pain of the character's lives.
I liked how all the different stories were interweaved with their current situations and that the tales were told around the Family Frying Pan to other people who were interested despite their pain and suffering of the past and the present.
I love listening to anything that Humphrey Bower reads. He is my favourite narrator. I read/listen to books because he is involved. I thought Melissa Eccleston did a fantastic job and will seek out other books that she narrates.
Yes, many moments in the book particularly moved me.
The whole book is a
Both are excellent and that is why I gave them five stars. Humphrey Bower is the narrarator
for all of Bryce Courteney's books. Outstanding performances!
Please check out all of the books by this author. You won't be disappointed!
This book held my wifes and my interest on a driving trip. The stories are engrossing and you really wonder at the end are they true? Very enjoyable and well narrated.
I enjoyed this Bryce Courtenay story. It was more like a series of short stories woven into one story. This was not my favorite Courtenay book, but still a worthy listen.
