I finished Tandia. What a great read. As usual I've learned a great deal. In this case about boxing! As an author myself I'm always very impressed with the research Bryce does for each of his books. Not only does he gives the reader vivid descriptions about his characters, and the historical information that adds to the story about Tandia during the apartheid years in South Africa. Apart from the entertainment, of wanting to learn more about the gruesome treatments people in power are capable of towards different race groups. Its the compassion, trust and loyalty that always makes Bryce's books special to the end.

Stephen Yes, "The Power of One" and this book really got me interested in boxing. I really love how he adds so much detail and history to his stories. Peekay rea;;y is a hero of mine - he is everything I want to be.
