Voices became very annoying and the writing plodded along to a predictable ending. Not a sophisticated read.

Lovely story

Charming, thoughtful and often funny, this is about a subject not often explored in a such depth. Enjoyed it and also the narration.

Not the funny laugh out loud book I had expected. At times it dragged and was a bit tedious

Louise Milligan has done a fabulous job of remaining impartial and factual in the telling of this vile story which must have consumed years of her life in research. As the story of George Pell unfolds, his character is revealed in small but telling anecdotes, and I for one, came to the opinion that he is a cold and ruthless person, power hungry and ambitious above all else. The criminal activities of catholic priests in relation to children is repellent, but the bigger crimes lay at the feet of those, like George Pell, who protected them and allowed them to continue abusing. It is impossible to imagine after listening to this book that George Pell had no knowledge of the rampant child sexual and physical abuse in his many parishes. I could find no explanation for his failure to protect those children, except that he was also an abuser and had no care for their suffering. All of his protestations of knowing nothing and being kept in the dark for decades was unconvincing and at times farcical so it was a great relief to hear that he has been imprisoned and stripped of his privileged position and pompous titles by Rome. A fate well deserved. One more interesting question is raised by this book. Is it the strange, unnatural training given to priests which creates these sexually deviant and cruel monsters? Or are those types of people drawn to the life, knowing they will have a steady supply of helpless victims on which to prey without interference?

He's created a couple of great characters here and a nice dry sense of humour adds to the enjoyment. For me, toward the end of the book it became too over the top but we did look forward to going somewhere in the car so we could keep listening.
