Whitethorn: Bryce Courtenay please write a follow up to this book! I'm enjoying it tremendously, so typically South African, the humour so true to life. I'm purposely reading the book SLOWLY so that I can savour it.

I have read most of Mr. Courtenay's books and wondered when his next one is due for release? Sylvia was the last one I bought.

Alexander Simon, Resident Bryce Courtenay Scholar
This persons review was offensive to me. He's supposed to be a scholar? His writing style is pathetic, and he takes offense because of Peekay's "superman" abilities. The power of one is a fictional story about a young boy beating the odds. It is an encouraging story that everyone should read.

I have read some of your books, and listened to you at times on the John Laws Show, I believe you could help me.I have been writing my life story, as yet I have not completed it, however I do have a lot done, its a true story and covers many issues, covering my upbringing that is not pretty, things that happened that my parents would not get away with today there is so much more than that far too much to explain this way.If at all possible I would like your help with my story, it is one that must be told, its sad,happy at times too,I am focusing on it being more Inspirational than sad, my story could help others. I survived a very difficult life,and in the end found happiness and love and have given my children all I never had mainly love, we almost lost our last child at 5 weeks of age, almost lost a son in a car wreck, and did lose our beautiful 24 year old daughter through no fault of hers in her car 5 minutes from home, I truely have a story to tell and I know you could help me, I have what I have done on disk as well as in my documents and would be so pleased if you would look at it. If you are interested at all. you could email me and I will give you my phone number and perhaps we could talk about it.My hope is you receive this and I hear back from you. Regards Elaine Green.

I am writing my Languages degree thesis on this Courtenay´s book and even though I think I understand English, I still do not get the meaning of the word "Scholar". Does it refer to somebody studying postgrade? a master´s degree? and experton this autor´s work? Could I take a scholars´ opinion into account as an academic previous work with enough value, or is it just a highschool students paper? Awaiting your urgent response...

Bryce's books are amazing! If I were to reccomend any book to people it would be one of his. They are inspiring, saddening and above all they show truthfully the the atrocities man commits against man and how those who are comitted against suffer as a result. Go forth and read all his books Absoloodle!
