    " Incredible, breathtaking. My second (third) Bryce Courtenay novel and again... bullseye! I recommend the Audible.com version narrated by Humphrey Bower. The author and the narrator compliment each other very well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheri | 2/14/2014

    " This is the sequel to my favorite book, The Power of One. After backtracking a little to introduce the title character, it continues to follow the story of Peekay & Tandia. Like The Power of One, it is set during the very dark and violent time of Apartheid. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lafcadio | 2/13/2014

    " This book is amazing. And also its prequel. You should read them both. Not sure if this is published in the U.S. yet; it wasn't when I read it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barb Deshler | 2/6/2014

    " I didn't like it nearly as well as The Power of One. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Garrett | 1/30/2014

    " This is the sequel to my favorite novel ever so while it could never compare, it's still not bad. In Tandia, Peekay continues to strive for the welterweight world title as a boxer and for justice in a corrupt Apartheid South Africa as a lawyer. He joins forces with his best friend, Hymie Levey and a beautiful girl named Tandia Patel, who is half Indian and half African. Tandia's painful childhood and teenage years rival those of Peekay. Additionally, just like "the Judge" from The Power of One, there is a character by the name of Colonel Janie Geldenheius who despises Peekay, Tandia, and will do everything possible to destroy their pursuit of justice. All in all, it's a good read but it still cannot compare to the original, The Power of One. "

    " Great book - read The Power of One first. I didn't realize there were two books and I read the second one first but still enjoyed both. Interesting story about South Africa. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Claire | 1/26/2014

    " The sequel to The Power of One. I listened to it - fantastic!!! "

    " This book follows The Power of One. Interest time period. "

    " I just HAD to listen to this, since I really liked The Power of One and wanted to read more about PeeKay! I guess it's really between a 3 and 4 star book for me. It was fun to follow up on him, but I thought this book wasn't as great as the first one. It seemed too melodramatic or schmaltzy. However, I still really LIKED it... or just enjoyed the story and got swept away by it. Toward the end, I was crying, as usual! I would still read more by Bryce Courtenay, even though I think, and have read in reviews, that his characters and situations are pretty over the top. It holds my attention, at least. Toward the end, I thought that the situation regarding what Tandia had been up to for 3 years was poorly developed and, I suppose, sort of a plot mechanism to get to the end. It just came as an unlikely surprise. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 1/12/2014

    " Intense sequel to Power of One. A must read if you enjoyed Power of One. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 M | 1/6/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan Wilson | 12/20/2013

    " The sequel to The Power of One. Another amazing story. I was pulled in on page one and couldn't put it down. Powerful and emotional. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andy Biggs | 12/3/2013

    " Bit disappointed by this book. Its not at the same level as The Power of One in my opinion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 brie | 11/29/2013

    " Sequel to The Power of One, which is one of my favorite books. If you read the former, then definitely read this! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 11/20/2013

    " As good as The Power of One - if you enjoyed that, you should read this one too! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca Parnell | 10/5/2013

    " Brilliant. Confronting. Heart breaking. Loved it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicholas | 9/3/2013

    " This was a good book, but not as good as the Power of One, which this is a sequel too. Great for those that want to know more about Peekay's future after reading The Power of One. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eleny | 7/9/2013

    " So far it is a good book. Very heavy reading. Having a hard time reading this book and have set it aside for the time being. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Swiss Reader | 6/12/2013

    " Good book but I enjoyed Power of One much better - He could have cut out about 150 pages and no one would notice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hilarie Ehlert | 2/17/2013

    " A sequel to The Power of One which remains a favorite. A story of courage, triumph, hope and the opportunity to learn about the history of South Africa, apartheid, racial segregation yet always with an eye on the compassion of the people. Well developed characters, well written, very graphic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jaime | 12/25/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maria | 9/3/2012

    " This is a wonderful book so far, with such rich characters and visual writing style. I originally read the Power of One by Courtenay for Vivian, to understand more about his country (South Africa), and now Tandia is proving to be even better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 5/25/2012

    " I found this book years after I had read THE POWER OF ONE. This book is actually the sequel. Excellent page turner! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marie | 5/13/2012

    " Not as good as the first one, but still worth the read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristy | 6/24/2011

    " A spectacular follow on from the Power of One. The only disappointing thing, not a happy ending after reading about the main characters that have pushed these two stories forward. "

    " I read half of this book over a year ago and then I finished it in about 2 days. It was an absolutely amazing book ... The Power of One which is the first of the two books is my all time favorite book ever. I highly recommend both for anyone who needs to be inspired. "
