    "OUTSTANDING!"

    A great story... So very different to the usual.. And the pace and intonation of the reading was perfect. Thanks to the ABC interview today for introducing me to Nick Earls as a writer.

    Story
    "Really got me in the end"

    I really wasn't sure about this at the start, why did I care about the indulgent life of a rap star or brat which is how he really comes across.

    But when the beautiful Ariel came into the picture, the contrast was amazing, how lucky some people appear even when they dont come across as deserving compared to those innocents who can't seam to catch a break.

    The joy portrayed in the park from both father and daughter was outstanding and the slide scene brought me to tears.

    Story
    "Heartfelt story"
    Would you listen to Gotham again? Why?

    yes, I think I'd pick up more subtext on the second listen


    What did you like best about this story?

    Liked the first person PoV, I liked the twist


    Did Rhys Muldoon do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

    Yes. Though weird hearing an actor I know we'll put on an American accent. But once I got used to that it was good. Made me feel empathy with the main characters.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Superheroes are everywhere

    I'm a journalist who enjoys breakfast with the paper on a Sunday morning and fresh, crisp bed sheets. Always up for a great yarn.

    "Great short story with plenty of heart"

    It was a great story with plenty of emotion. Rhys Muldoon read the story perfectly and captured that great Aussie heart within the world. Really recomend it for anyone who loves music or wants to see an alternative side of journalism.

    "Best Audiobook I've listened to."

    This book is so well written. The author takes time to describe the scenes so perfectly.

    The performance takes this amazing book and brings it to life.

    I wish I could give this books rating extra bonus points..

    "Wow. I didn't expect that."

    "Gotham is charming, edgy, surprising & beautifully read"

    Beautiful and raw story, teen rapper interview juxtaposed against backdrop of two fathers trying to do right, one Australian, one from Brooklyn USA, both in New York aka Gotham. Highly recommend it!

    "Lovely ending"

    The ending left me wishing for a very positive outcome for Batman in the city of superheroes. Great story.
