Dalton created an amazingly detailed window into the extended effects of the drug scene in Brisbane’s 1980. A webb of so many tiny facts are woven and rewired through the storyline. Making it so so hard to switch off. The most enthralling Modern Day Australian novel I have read/ listened to .

Not as good as first two in series

Content to up the the diverse quality of the first 2 books in the series, but as always Marian Keyes manages to get you laughing out loud in the most inappropriate places. The empathy she creates makes you unable to stop til the end, while the perfect narration by Gerri Halligan adds to the atmosphere. Just waiting for my next audible credit to listen to the next in the series- I’m hooked by this crazy Irish family!

Hilarious but down to earth exposeé into addiction

Took a little to get into this 2nd book reading it straight after 1st book in series. Gerri’s narration brought Marian Keyes incredible insight to life. I cried along, laughed hysterically along and cringed along with the story line, giving me a whole new perspective on my guilt ridden catholic upbringing and my long-standing chocolate addiction. 😝

Great escape from life

As ever Marian had one crying or laughing, or even crying with laughter, while you are so easily drawn i to the life of each character, who were all given even more personality by the perfect match of Gerri’s voice of narration.

Adult version of a combination between Enid Blyton’s Famous Five and Emmerdale Farm. Narrator’s accents sounded ridiculous and did not improve the far fetched storyline.

Incredible insight into the the first owner of this country

Great narration of a well written chronicle of one of the first families of Australia, their customs beliefs injustices and their Dreamtime.

Threat narration by Carroll who personified Carl’s voice well, but the content was particularly boring and repetitive providing no more insight than already available .

Unbelievable insight into lifestyle and choices most of us are not exposed to. In eclectic mis-mash of times, situations and psychological explanations reflecting a nightmare of downward spirals, that should be expected but each time shock .

Incredible subject matter- well covered. But the complex plot, multiple characters and flash backs- made me rewind multiple times ad I got lost in the plot. This dark story was made even darker but the full monotone voice of the narrator which gave it a further sad note. Having said all that the twisting story of multiple refugee lives was compelling.

Incredible to see the war from the opposite perspective with different values and expectation. Great historic fiction grounded in reality
