Very brief and poorly narrated. Such an interesting historical event badly presented and narrated. Looking for a better book on the same subject.

Brilliant!

Well crafted detective story, rich with characters, set in the highlands of Scotland. Every bit as good as the Rebus books, with good, entertaining dialogue. Narration was excellent!

A remarkable watershed in medical science

Well written and read, the story of Lister’s work in the understanding of how germs killed patients following surgery in the 19th century and the introduction of antiseptic surgical practices to combat septicaemia and gangrene. Very enjoyable listen.

Excellent on every level

I love Grisham stories, but this is the first audiobook I stopped listening to after just 30-minutes. Just the worst narrator, trying to do female voices. Sounded like something from the muppets. Get a better narrator and I will re-purchase.

Excellent story and well read

A beautifully crafted story set during the times of apartheid in South Africa. It was entertaining and engaging from start to finish. Excellently read and superb narrator.

Absolute rubbish and technically poor.

I love books about the sea and ships, but this one was rubbish. I struggled through the first couple of hours and finally gave up when the captain described his super tanker was carrying a cargo of coal! Narrator was also poor. Sorry!

An excellent explanation of what nasa has achieved so far with regards to the the exploration of our solar system. I waa amazed at the number of exploratory missions completed and ongoing exploring our solar system and the discoveries they have made. For anyone interested in the subject, but maybe time poor, this is as good as it gets! I am inspired to but a telescope and the hard copy of the book. Good job Brian and Andrew!

Slow!

Not sure how this won a prize. Very slow and quite boring. Needed to speed up narration to get through it quicker.

Excellently written and narrated!

For engineers, scientists and project managers, this is an excellent account of how technology and politics don’t mix. An important technological event that had contributed to the ultimate collapse of the USSR and gives pause for thought as to the potential role of nuclear power generation to address climate change. An excellent read (listen)!
