Book Synopsis

Tandia sat waiting anxiously for the fight to begin between the man she loved the most and the man she hated the most in the world. Tandia is a child of Africa: half Indian, half African, beautiful and intelligent, she is only sixteen when she is first brutalised by the police. Her fear of the white man leads her to join the black resistance movement, where she trains as a terrorist. With her in the fight for justice is the one white man Tandia can trust, the welterweight champion of the world, Peekay. Now he must fight their common enemy in order to save both their lives.

Latest Impressions

  • This version has been abridged

    By Jpf0928
    The full, original edition of Tandia, like its predecessor The Power of One, is one of the best books I have ever read. Unfortunately, this version of the book has numerous deletions from the original edition that I read some years earlier. While the substance of the plot is not altered, the edit was performed clumsily, with numerous references made to the missing text in the remaining portions. Some of the missing text was among my favourite, which is how I noticed its absence. The greatest shame of all is that the audio edition of the book, which like The Power of One is brilliantly and evocatively rendered by Humphrey Bower, is this same abridged edition. I felt cheated to not be able to hear him utter every word of the original text.
