When I initially started listening I was so into this story, it was thrilling and had me at the edge of my seat but unfortunately I found that it drifted off towards the end and started focusing on other characters and story lines that were irrelevant to the core part that made it so interesting. It had the potential to be so much more at the end.

What would have made Roman Crazy better?

Less cliche more interesting content.

What three words best describe Randi Geddens’s performance?

She gave it a good crack. Randi's Male Italian accent was ok. Randi has a strong American accent (Not that it was an issue) I'm Australian so you can obviously notice a difference in how words are pronounced.

Any additional comments?

This is your average cliche romcom book, to point that you can sum up the plot in 5 minutes time. You know the where it is heading and know what the conclusion will be. I thought I would give this genre a go and thought that maybe this one would be different but it wasn't. Yes this a personal opinion, so many may like the light & fluffy theme but it just wasn't for me.

I was so excited to listen to the fourth instalment of this series but unfortunately was left slightly disappointed. Although Sassoon/Sultana deliver high a standard of writing, I feel as though the story was kind of lost in the message. Sultana has a strong message to tell but it does get repetitive at the times, it left me wanting for the same style of writing/ story telling from the first ever book they collaborated on. I appreciate Sultana's plight for women's rights in SA but didn't enjoy this book like the others written before.

Powerful!!

This is one of the most powerful, fascinating and beautifully written books I have ever read/listened to in my life. This book gives you a personal and in depth insight into the world of a Saudi Arabian princess, & also a look into a world that is completely dominated by men and religion. The story is touching and complex a very interesting read from start to finish.

Listening to Caroline Lee narrate & establish all characters in such a fitting way made listening enjoyable and kept it light hearted. Caroline kept me engaged with the story line even when certain parts of story become slightly repetitive she knows how to keep her audience listening. To cut the story it's about a group of friends that attend a bbq, it looks at the at what happened from bbq at each characters perspective & how they viewed the event & how they felt after the bbq.
