Sophie is a champion, so tenacious and brave. An excellent reporter.....what an eye opener! She really puts a human element to the suffering of innocent citizens and those who put their lives at risk and those who lose their lives, fighting against these evil tyrants. We need to hold our governments accountable for their complicity. There is no excuse for our ignorance

As usual, excellent reporting!
Big fan of both of these reporters, well researched and nonpartisan reporting. Their story points out how President #45 is unhinged, corrupt and incapable of the job he's been elected to do. Disinformation, lies, manipulation and obstruction of justice, are absolutely confirmation of this 'Unstable Idiot'

Misophonia...!!!

I REALLY wanted to listen to this book, I was intrigued with Schapelle's story - as there were so many holes and questions about her guilt, HOWEVER, while Casey Withoos is a great narrator, I find it impossible to listen to this book, due to the sound editing. Its like nails on a chalk board hearing Casey's inhalation breath so loudly! Why isn't this edited and recorded better? Please understand THIS IS real....mysophia - Im not the only person that suffers, and its due to inadequate recording. Its the second Casey Withoos narration I gave up on.

Corey's story - brave, honest and illustrates how damaged humans can be and systems supposed to protect children have big holes.
I applaud Corey exposing his painful experiences and life and the people who bullied and damaged him. I am a complex ptsd sufferer - which is not well known about, as opposed to ptsd which does have society's awareness. Complex ptsd can evolve not only through child abuse/neglect but also through domestic abuse, something that can only be managed. Thank you Corey

I went with this book because of David 's narration, he never disappoints. The book however, didn't go anywhere, I was waiting for something, but it didn't happen. It had the promise of a good book but was just flat.

The author obviously loves food, I hope he realises that giving knives as a gift is supposed to be bad luck..it will sever the relationship. From a hospitality background...I was frustrated with keeping the knife sharp - and the salmon- I fear the skin wouldn't be crispy.

After watching the documentary on Netflix -I wanted to learn more about the twins and their horrific story- the documentary only briefly skimmed the story and there were a few inaccuracies.

I applaud not only the twins but their brother and sister - their courage and resilience.

It’s hard to understand and fathom a mother who has no love, who objectifies her own children - who is cruel and has no remorse for her behaviour. Jill demonstrates the behaviour of psychopath /narcissistic personality disorder- society has to realise that not all of these monsters are serial killers and men !
I for one, have a mother who is one.

Mark Donaldson....What a hero, in so many ways

A fabulous read, and fabulous narrator...!

We all have our 'demons' whether or not we consciously accept them is another thing.

Tim's life was in the spot light and life's 'rolling of the dice', caused pain, stress and trauma any human would find difficult. His honesty and confrontation of his behaviours and his accountability is applaudable. Tims loyalty and love for his family make him truely admirable. I love David Tredinnick's narration!

Wow...well written and great narration

What a way to live... this brave British soldier....living a double life, going against everything he believes in to 'save lives'
Life was cheap in beautiful Ireland.
