I love the Bryce Courtenay and Humphrey Bower combination. If this book had been just that, the listening would have been enjoyable. Unfortunately, Bower is out after the introduction and Melissa Eccleston's reading is too annoying to finish. I am not certain what the logic was in the casting but it was a serious mistake.

I never thought that I would be so uninspired by one of Bryce's books! I felt that this book should have just stayed in the family circle where it would be more appreciated and read by the members of the family and then their Grandmother would come to life. The short little tales told in that interminable female Russian accent only got boring and I found myself fast forwarding and stifling a yawn. I am so disappointed as I had Bryce on a pedestal as a writer.

Amazing story, brilliant narration.
Bryce Courtenay never disappoints.
I will read this again many times.
So important to have the Russian narration. BRILLIANT
I just loved all the different characters and their unique unbelievable (yet basically true) stories brought to life by the author. I just did not want it to be finished! Bravo Bryce Courtenay!
I really enjoyed the stories of all the characters and their journeys. Love Bryce Courtenay.
