Fantastic, fascinating read. An biblical allegory not easily forgotten with unexpected rwists and turns. Loved the characters , complexity and subplots. A real page turner. The Aussie accent was a bit of a giggle though. Needs a bit more practice.

I enjoyed this story and especially the quirky protagonist. It was unpredictaable, which I always enjoy, with well expressed dry humor. I really appreciated the absence of explicit sexual content and wonder was the one and only swearword worth putting in? This level of writing requires no cheap embellishment at all. It was a great read.

totally spoiled by unecessary swearing and sexually explicit visuals. I tried to scroll to the end to write this as I only listen to a little of it, but could not Pity, the story might have been interesting and I have wasted my money on the audiotrack. I really would not even give it a 1 since I didnt even get to the story. I dont understand why talented writers need to resort to such low grade writing strategies.
