Four Fires by Bryce Courtney(46 ratings)

Newsflash: Four Fires Fantastic! 1000 pages soft cover seemed like a turnoff at the start, but after 50 pages I was in for the duration. This book is simply excellent. The Power of One and Tandia were a bit better for me, but I cannot say enough about these characters, and Courtney's way with words in this novel. The twist in the last 50 pages was a bit to take at first, but it actually served to make the book more real. Courtney is 3/3 with me, so now that I have demolished all of Wilbur Smith and Ken Follett, it looks like Courney is next!

I found it very difficult to put this book down and Bryce Courtney's ability to deliver detail but keep you interested is excellent. A great read for anyone interested in a snapshot of Australia's history with some artistic license in a wonderful storyline. Bryce Courtney's books read as though they are heavily and well researched but are an easy read, you may even learn something. I know I did.

I think this book was well writen and an easy read that I enjoyed immensely. However I do have one critical remark. At the end I got confused because it jumped forward so far. I had to re-read the ending thinking it was part of his next book. However I figured it out and have read the book more than once since then. I recommend it to everyone. Top book, please keep them coming!
