one of the BEST books i have eveer read (and a fantastic movie, too)! i wanted to read this book forever - i was sad when i turned the last page. descriptions are so vivid, you feel like you are living it.
I have tried, and tried, and TRIED to get into this book... just couldn't do it. I refuse to let a book go unread, so I will finish it, but only through drudgery. Sorry Bryce Courtenay, but this was so slow and pathetic at keeping its reader, I wouldn't recommend this one.
