If you only ‘liked’ Jimmy Barnes and his music before you listen this the first book in his life’s journey, you will love and totally respect him afterwards.
Not only is he a great singer, songwriter, humanitarian and entertainer, he’s a really nice guy and a very talented writer. Listen and find out for your yourself ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

First the Power of One... now Tandia ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

You must read the Power of One to fully appreciate the brilliance of Tandia by the incredibly talented Bryce Courtenay. I struggle to decide which of his works I enjoy the most but if I’m honest these two are right up there... Enjoy 😊

Can’t recommend highly enough. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Wow... I have read this book and the following one, Tandia twice, many years ago and absolutely loved it. It counts right up there at the top of my all time favourite novels. The author is so good, one could believe they were there and even that it could be a true story. Emotion, dedication, loyalty, humility and love for South Africa are ingrained in his words. The narrator in this case has captured the accents, culture and characters perfectly only adding to my love for this book. Can’t recommend highly enough. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I’ve really loved this series and thoroughly enjoyed this story. Only one very minor whinge; Francie’s pitiful voice irritated me enormously! But it definitely didn’t put me off listening to the story 😉

As usual with any of Lee Childs work, this story was great. Jeff Harding narrates the male characters very well but lets down a little with the female characters. Early in the story a female detective features quite prominently, that voice put me on edge to the point where I nearly gave up listening; I’m glad I didn’t. She remained in the story but not so much. If it doesn’t bother you, I recommend this book!

This is a wonderful story that doesn’t necessarily need to be listened to at Christmas! It’s the story of an old man’s love for a small child and how that child helped him learn to forgive and find it in his heart to love again.
Richard Armitage narrates beautifully. Thoroughly recommend.
