The Potato Factory – Bryce Courtenay

potato factoryREAD FOR BOOKCLUB

Chosen by Jo

A fictionalised historical novel about career criminal Ikey Solomon and his transportation to Van Diemen’s Land.

❚ “A thrilling story with plenty of interesting twists and turns. Ikey Soloman is a despicable rogue who you can’t help but like. Some scenes of violence seem a bit gratuitous. However I love a story centred around hardship and poverty and so enjoyed this book thoroughly.” – Jo

❚ “Thoughts” – Suzy

❚ “Thoughts” – Nadine

❚ “I do like reading about the penal colonies and the stories of individuals who had to work so hard to adjust and survive, so this was an enjoyable read.” – Rachel
