Started listening to Audio Books again after a few years break. This was a good return. The story held my interest but failed to give the transportation quality of River God.
The narrator was very good. However the story was not memorable. I only managed two hours the first day and was unable to finish it. I found that I had to go back to the beginning after three or four days just to remember the characters.
Yet another cracking story. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Lots of twists and tales, with a clever ending. As usual, I never wanted this book to end.
"An unfortunate disappointment."
A much shorter effort that speedily deals with major character arcs without the delicate and deeply thoughtful ways of the past books. A Swallow falls feels rushed and leaves you longing for more.
I made the mistake of buying an abridged version, it didn't have the depth and enjoyment of his other full length books.
"The Courtney Family"
One lives in the story, passionately becoming part of the beautiful Africa and the lives intertwined by raw emotion!
