Jessica by Bryce Courtney(191 ratings)
|Submitted by Lilian Wings |
It has been quite a few years since I have read the story "Jessica" and I can tell you that I have never forgotten it! This story would have to be one of the best ones I have ever read. It made me laugh, cry, get angry, get sombre and also get a different outlook on life. Bryce you have certainly given this book your ultimate touch of brilliance and may I say without a doubt that this is your finest work. Just when you thought April fools day had it wrapped up, along came Jessica. Of all your works I know not any other that has given me so much insight and afterthought than this story. Thank God we have you Bryce, because you certainly outshine any writer I have ever followed.

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.

Im one of those people that gets sidetracked easily. I don't read alot of books until I find a gem and have a quick spurt. Not long ago I came across 'April Fools Day' which sounded interesting enough so I thought I'd give it a crack, i'd never read anything by Bryce Courtenay before. When I finished it I nearly went berserk telling all that would listen about this amazing author Bryce Courtenay, looks like i was the last person on earth to hear about him cause everyone already seemed to know. Since then I've read 'Tommo & Hawk' and about 5 minutes ago finished 'Jessica'. 'The Power of One'is waiting for me at home. 'Jessica' is the best book i've ever read, without a doubt. Im not joking, it's unreal. The fact that this is a true story just blows me away, im so grateful to Bryce for having written it and look forward to reading and learning more from this incredibly talented man. (I also finally learned what the word salubrious means)
