No because I've already listened to it. It's a long book.
Africa. I like Bryce's interpretation and painting of Africa.
If you like Bryce Courtenay, you won't be dissapointed.
I really enjoyed Whitethorn.
It did have some disturbing parts in it but if you can get past those parts it is a brilliant story. The way Bryce Courtney tells the story through the eyes of a young boy is just so entertaining.
I shared this book with my 60+ Mother and 90+ Grandmother and they both loved it, so much so they have listened to it more than once.
Yes, for those who can handle the violence and brutality that go with living in an orphanage as the "outcast"
When Tom sold the 3 Steinways
Excellent ability to take on the characteristics of the various dialects -- Afrikaner, Indian, British English, Cape Colored
Tom's mentors, the Sgt, the Dr., and Miss ___________
I enjoy audio books immensely, I would be ill advised to suggest that it is better than print.
He captures the essence of the characters so perfectly and with such feeling - bravo Humphrey.
I have to say tears did well up when the little fox terrier Tinker died of a broken heart
Not at the present for Bryce but still definitely for Mr Bower.
The story line weak. Unnecessary graphic vulgarity not required for story line.
Humphrey Bower's accent cannot be duplicated in my mind.
I've read and or listened to 7 to 8 Bryce Courtney novels. This is the first one I have not thoroughly enjoyed or would not recommend
No I have read four or five other stories but this one is simalar to one of his other books.
Conflict of interest
He does an excelent job of diferentiating the caracters
