Editorial Reviews

Review

The Power of One has everything: suspense, the exotic, violence; mysticism, psychology and magic; schoolboy adventures, drama in the boxing ring.”
The New York Times

From the Publisher

In the Ballantine publicity department, we have an informal book club. It usually gets started is when one of us reads a book, loves it, and then passes it on to a friend in the department. Once one person has read a book and loves it, then we ALL have to read it too! THE POWER OF ONE by Bryce Courtenay was one of those books. You may have seen the movie with Morgan Freeman, but I urge you to read the book because it was much better than the movie. It's a coming-of-age story of a young boy in South Africa. He has such a hard time of things! He's picked on as a young boy, then he befriends an older man who teaches him the wonders of life. The book is beautifully written, and the story is extremely compelling. If you liked Anna Quindlen's OBJECT LESSONS or Edward Albee's A DEATH IN THE FAMILY or John Irving's A PRAYER FOR OWEN MEANY, you will love this book too.

2.0 out of 5 stars poor condition
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on October 2, 2019
Really disappointed with the quality of the book. I selected “like new” because I assumed it’s stating that although it is second-hand it’s still in excellent condition. Unfortunately it smells like an asthmatics nightmare, looks weathered and abused and has marks all over it. It’s intact and readable at least but the only reason I’m giving two stars is because it’s an excellent novel.
