Chloe’s ability to tell an ugly, jarring story so beautifully was stunning. Those involved were described with depth and consideration and the lines between good and evil were aptly blurred.

The story was told in all its complexity against the backdrop of a brutal but beautiful landscape. The interweaving of science, psychology, human relationships, law,
economy and nature was seamlessly skillful.

Extraordinary book, beautifully narrated by Sybilla.

Really enjoyed this...especially the exploration of the psychology behind why chilli-heads are doing what they are doing. Interesting reflection on Marc’s own food demons. Definitely recommend!

I love Eleanor!

What an exquisite novel. Written with so much humour and humanity. I just adored the characters. Beautifully written and stunningly narrated. My only disappointment was that the book had to finish. For me, this is the book of the year (if not longer!)

Absolutely loved it!

What made the experience of listening to The Dry the most enjoyable?

The narrator was fantastic! Absolutely captured what I saw to be the essence of the book. The story was fabulously written...loved the crescendo to the finish. Highly recommend!

Stunning!

Here I am, sobbing. Just finished this most beautiful book. Magda's language is wonderful. Her thoughts are treasures and her humanity is soul filling. Such a pleasure to share in her vulnerability, wit and warmth.

Fantastic!!!

A book with much wisdom, science and humour. Should be read by all who want a grounded and kindness filled life.
