“The Power of One” by Bryce Courtenay
I have read this book a number of times and have recommended it to so many people over the years. It was first published in 1989 by Australian author Bryce Courtenay, telling the story of a young English Boy growing up in South Africa during the 1930s and 1940s. Peekay goes through many adversities, meeting a number of unique characters along the way. I have read this book a couple of times as it’s messages throughout have always made me think. I find it’s one of those books where I want to meet the characters. They made a movie version of the book, but it’s not near as good as the book. Great read for teenagers too.
Buy this wonderful book at your local bookstore!
