Great story
12 January 2004 | by (sydney,australia) – See all my reviews

This was a great story really well told. I read the book years ago. When I saw it was being turned into a mini series I was a bit worried that it wouldn't really work that well. However the harshness of the central character's father is well represented by William McInnes.
