This is without a doubt my favourite book of all time. Never has a book developed such memorable characters. This book is about relationships across the years. Its about the deepest friendships and enemies twisted my hate and racial divide. The story is told across the years of apartheid. The best thing i can say however it is one of the few books that has had be reread paragraphs in wonder again and again as i was so awestruck my its wonderful language. If i found myself on a desert island this book would be my best friend.
