I read my first bryce courney book. it took me 3 days, and im now exhausted. The book was Jessica. It was an amazing work. In my minds eye, I watched the story unfold, witnessing the events that made me cry, and laugh. Up untill now, I considered Maeve Binchy to be the best story teller I have ever read, and she is, but now Mr Courtney equals her with his amazing talent for unfolding a yarn, and describing the characters so well that they come alive before your eyes. They jump out of the pages, and the journeys taken exhaust and amazed me.
I also now have a deeper sympathy for the plight of our aborginals. I always thought that they have been done wrong by by this country, but mary simpsons story is, im sure, typical of many.
I loved the book. I recommend it to readers of all ages. I will be reading everything that I can get my hands on that has been written by this fantastic author.. thank you mr courtny..
