Product description

Review

"It's hard to imagine a reader delivering his audience so completely to a foreign locale as Humphrey Bower does in this coming-of-age novel based in South Africa. Unfolding against a backdrop of the most pernicious racism, the story follows the growth of the poor young white boy, Peekay, whose growth to adulthood parallels his country's struggle toward justice. Americans in particular are in for a treat in hearing their native tongue rendered in so rich a variety of exotic accents from the lips of Boers, Englishmen, and Zulu tribesmen. So effective is Bower that listeners find themselves anticipating the idioms of the various characters, unfamiliar turns of phrase that soon enough sound completely natural." Author: AudioFile Magazine --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

2.0 out of 5 stars poor condition
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 3 October 2019
Really disappointed with the quality of the book. I selected “like new” because I assumed it’s stating that although it is second-hand it’s still in excellent condition. Unfortunately it smells like an asthmatics nightmare, looks weathered and abused and has marks all over it. It’s intact and readable at least but the only reason I’m giving two stars is because it’s an excellent novel.
