Staff Pick

This book had a huge impact on me. I read it when I was in middle school and was completely hypnotized by the descriptions of South Africa and the people who lived there. A couple of years later, in high school, I decided to become an exchange student and when one of the options of places to go was South Africa, I remembered the quality of the air and the landscape and the magic that Bryce Courtenay created and decided that's where I needed to go. Ultimately I lived in Johannesburg for eight months and had a totally life-altering time, probably in large part because of this book.
