Excellent story, interesting to see the development of a person and the influences that help. Set in and around WWII in a country of wide extremes and brutality. Definitely worth reading.

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.
