This was a book I just couldn't put down, I took it to work to read during breaks and read it at home...there are moments of sadness, humor, joy, happiness etc it gets you to really try and picture in your mind what happens and makes you feel for the characters in the story.
I had had to buy a few paperback versions as when I leant it out it never got returned as people enjoyed it so much they passed it around so imagine my glee when I found it on the Kindle so I will never lose it again. 😀
Very good book...give it a try!
RIP Bryce Courtenay
Even if you are not familiar with the Country both books are enthralling reading.
