Pat posts on 3/17/2006 9:38:41 AM I know that Tandia continues the stories of the characters from The Power of One, but is there another book? I read them several years ago and seem to remember a third.

gordon williams posts on 2/9/2006 4:23:56 AM After wading through Thommo and Hawk imagine how frustrating the ending is! Is there a follow up book? God I hope so! I've been following the Solomons for too long to be cut off now!
Mike cartwright posts on 2/8/2006 7:19:41 PM Is there a follow on book continuing the story, I guess Ben's finace is expecting his baby and Bens sister has things happen to her and hawk will eventually die. Is their a sequel, if not when can we expect it.
Kim posts on 2/8/2006 10:16:27 AM "Power of One." about a young white boy growing up in APartheid Saouth Africa who becomes a competive boxer. My favourite book of all time. If you are an athlete you must read it. The movie is not as good, but it deals more with the race issues that were central to Apartheid, plus it does not deal with the magic realism in the book.
Kristy posts on 2/7/2006 8:51:45 PM Hi, my name is Kristy and I am studying year 12 in South Australia, AUSTRALIA. In English Studies, we are currently required to do a huge assessment where we connect a book with a film and write an 8000 word supporting study and 2000 word essay to connect them. We have been urged to find more challenging books, like adult fiction. I have looked up Bryce Courtenay and have found some very good sounding books. I'm 17 so I was wondering if anyone would be able to recommend an interesting read for some one of my age. I want something that I will be able to look at very deeply and connect its issues with those of a film. I really appreciate your help :-)
Anonymous posts on 2/5/2006 1:20:21 AM I recently read Bryce Courtenay's book 'April Fools Day.'The way in which this book touched me was overwhelming. Throughout this book i laughed and cryed, i even felt as though i knew damon. His story is one of love and courage- i know that people who can suffer so much and still be so positive are few and far between. Damon was an exceptional young man who seemed to have a habit of making the impossible possible. This book is a touching 'must- read' and i thoroughly enjoyed every word of it!
Jenny P posts on 1/16/2006 2:28:51 AM Johno123, I think the book you are refering to is April Fool's Day. The book is about Bryce Courtney's experiences with his son, Damon, who has Haemaphilia. It's a brilliant book, so try googling "April Fool's Day - Bryce Courtney." & you might get something. Later
