The houses of the wealthy merchants are most elegant, with not a lick of paint spared, and every brass doorknob highly polished ants of all description, some.

The houses of the wealthy merchants are most elegant, with not a lick of paint spared, and every brass doorknob highly polished ants of all description, some even sporting fountains in this city short of water. The government and commercial buildings and the churches which, for the most part, are made of the local sandstone, are handsome and well maintained. The streets are paved and have footpaths

Finished the first two books of this trilogy and decided I can't muscle through the third book. Finishing the last third of Tommo and Hawk was a test of endurance. If these stories have some historical accuracy, that would be the only benefit to wasting hours of time and energy getting through them. They're both long winded, predictable and yet completely ridiculous. The characters move from one challenge to the next with inane conversation followed by implausible results. Tommo and Hawk could easily been half as long. The interesting characters have all died off at this point and we're left with these two numb-skulls who like nothing better than to make poor decisions about every aspect of their lives. Then miraculously they somehow persevere through long odds over the "mongrels." I only give two stars because the narrator is Excellent. Otherwise this is time and Audible credits that have been wasted.
This, the second book of the trilogy follows the descendants of the characters of the first book.. The characters are well developed and several; characters that were in "The Potato Factory" appear again in this book. I did enjoy reading this book but it a can't compare to "The Potato Factory"
The history and character's connection was much better in the first book. This said, Tommo & Hawk is a good read butnot as good as the first book.
Have now ready both "The Potato Factory" and "Tommo & Hawk" and am currently reading the last in the trilogy, "Solomon's Song" Both books were exceptionally good and Tommo & Hawk just takes over from where the Potato Factory ends. The same is true of Solomon's Song. The author will have you sitting on the edge of your seat on one page and laughing to tears on the next. The narrator is fantastic. He changes voices among the various characters and has a masterful way of holding your attention.
Tommo and Hawk is book 2 of the Australian trilogy by Bryce Courtenay.

Tommo and Hawk is a wonderfully sometimes painful account of two brothers in their search to become men. Bryce Courtenay, in telling this story, gives the reader the taste of what it would be like to live in the mid 1800's. The reader is not just reading the tale. The reader is living it. Every step of the way from the whale ship to the boxing ring. Nothing is predictable.

This is a book that should not be missed by anyone.
Well written fictional history worth reading for any American wanting to better understand the history of Australia and New Zealand.
This book is the second in a trilogy and continues the story based on Ikey Solomon, the "prince of thieves" in London. The saga is about the shipment of convicts to Australia and how they survived in the colony. Two of the main characters also go to New Zealand and I was annoyed that Bryce Courtenay did not do his research on Maori cultural practices surrounding death but, otherwise, the author tells a great tale.
Bryce Courtenay has NEVER let me down. His reads are excellent in keeping my attention and he was an extremely talented writer. May he rest in peace, and I shall miss looking forward to new books.
Courtenay at his best!
An interesting view of early New Zealand, with some provocative insights into the rape, by British colonialism of the Maori and the Abotigine of Australiia, told amidst the struggle of Tommo and Hawk to come to terms with themselves, the perils of growing up, and the temptations of substance abuse as a means of coping with pain and disillusionment.
An awesome follow on of The Potato Factory.
