Summary

The world's toughest car race. Twenty-one days of searing heat and rock-hard desert tracks; of blowouts and breakdowns; of subterfuge and sabotage. Ten thousand miles of dust and glory. Driving at breakneck speed over Australia's roughest roads and through the most appalling conditions imaginable, six competitors break free from the pack and fight for the lead, gradually finding themselves entangled in a web of deceit, betrayal and danger. Dust and Glory is best-selling author Evan Green's stirring account of the most grueling race of them all. A hair-raising, careering ride that accelerates to a gripping and unforgettable finish.

Fun, exciting, well read

Humphrey Bower is the narrator; 'nough said!!

Not a challenging book, just an action packed, roller-coaster ride around 1950s Australia.
Well written, beautifully read, I loved it.

Great book.. multiple sub stories to keep interest

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes.. i couldnt put it down, i just wanted to know what happened next..

What does Humphrey Bower bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Great accents and multiple voices (in austrailian too) giving the charactors instant recognition

Any additional comments?

Great book.. wish there was a sequel..

Cheers to Humphrey Bower!

This audio book would have suffered immensely had not a narrator of Humphrey Bower's talent read it.

The naivety of the main characters became a bit of a grind. Ridiculous really. After ALL the mishaps and shady characters lurking about, most plodded along in ignorant bliss. The way luck ALWAYS befell the protagonists was a little childish as well. Moral of the story was that good guys prevail and bad guys are buffoons and plagued with misfortune. All delivered with the subtlety of a sledge hammer.

The story certainly had it's moments in spite of a constant repetition of calamitous scenarios, but again, would have been a bore without Humphrey Bower's brilliant narration.
