A very clear scholarly presentation provided with humour. Educational and personally engaging, easy to follow in an audio version. I gained a lot from this course and thoroughly recommend it even to those like me with interests more scientific than philosophical.

This is a wonderful book, educational, entertaining, very funny at times, but also a harrowing story of the injustice, brutality and greed in India at a particular time. I wanted it to never end.

This book and its sequel is a saga set mostly in the Australian outback with some amazing and believable characters. The narration is great, especially given the many characters involved. I found the book to be engrossing and totally believable from the start. I greatly admire the skill of the author and the narrator. I strongly recommend this book and its sequel Kalinda

The book provides an engrossing saga of several generations of an Australian family based around Sydney starting from a convict past up to almost to the present time. The characters are well developed and not idealized. As well as being enjoyable, the book provides a painless lesson in Australian history. I thoroughly recommend it.

Gripping story, excellent narration. Incredible detail, even excruciating at times. But hard to stop listening
