5.0 out of 5 stars 10 out of 10 as usual 25 Oct 2011
People who go to their grave without having experienced the sheer joy of Bryce Courtenay's astonishing writing have truly missed out. This is the third in a trilogy about a family in Australia and it is magnificent. All his books are brilliant and once you have read one you will be hooked. Whitethorn is probably the best book I have ever read in my life. A work of art.

5.0 out of 5 stars As I expected an excellent read 29 Dec 2011
And, I'm trying not to read it too fast as I don't want it to end. This book is the last in the Trilogy which starts in London with The Potato Factory. The main character is Isaac Solomon, a London criminal said to have been the person that Charles Dickens based the character Fagin on in his book Oliver Twist. Also about Isaac Solomon's enemies, family and friends who all eventually end up in Tasmania. Book two Tommo and Hawkand book three Solomon's Song continues the tale of the characters from book one and as the years pass tell their descendants' tale as they travel about New Zealand, Australia and Tasmania. In reading this trilogy one can glean much about the history of every strata of society from the criminals and first settlers from Europe and the various indigenous populations and their involvement in the history of the Antipodean colonies. I can well recommend all Bryce Courtenay's books but these three in particular are a must to read.

This whole trilogy is good. I read all three in a row without a break, and couldn't put them down. I liked the historical element and how it all seemed to unfold. Highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solomon's Song 3 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Beautifully written, should have public health warning not to read in public. Cried like a baby daily on the train. Ben's letters to Victoria and Hawk reduced me to tears. The book brings to life such horrors of war and the waste of life. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Really interesting and hard to put down 19 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Like the rest of the trilogy, it's really well researched, but it's a bit of an exhausting experience. Having said that, I'll probably re-read the whole trilogy.

Hard to review Courtenay's books, as it has all been said before. Great writer that turns a good story into a great read.

If you want to read a review of his books, it goes without saying that you have not read any of his work, as you would have just got the book, trusting in the man to entertain you.
