No Friend but the Mountains
- Writing from Manus Prison
- By: Behrouz Boochani, Omid Tofighian - translator
- Narrated by: Geoffrey Robertson, Isobelle Carmody, Mathilda Imlah, and others
- Length: 13 hrs and 1 min
In 2013, Kurdish journalist Behrouz Boochani was illegally detained on Manus Island. He has been there ever since. This book is the result. Laboriously tapped out on a mobile phone and translated from the Farsi. It is a voice of witness, an act of survival. A lyric firsthand account. A cry of resistance. A vivid portrait through five years of incarceration and exile.
First-rate story, third-rate narration

I just can say WOW. Amazing work and real life story. I was trying to imagine myself in characters described in the book and yet its tough life. We are all behind you guys. One more step to freedom. Keep up the good work.
