Its impossible to believe that Jane Harper is not an Aussie girl who grew up in the ochre sands of the outback. Her capture of iconic outback characters & life in these vast endless propertys is breathtaking. The struggle for survival & ownership, life, death & love is a daily battle & Jane absolutely nails it. I listen just wishing the storys will never finish.

Tried but failed! Just cannot listen to this grating child like narration of this book. Life & listening time is too short. Apologies to Christian White

The joy of becoming a grandfather when not given the chance to be a father to his daughter

Raw & beautiful isolated survival

Sean Barret is such a perfect narrator for Mankell’s Archipelago books that I forgot he wasn’t the author

I love Karin Slaughter but sadly Unseen will not be finished by me as the narrator has "slaughtered" the reading
Some women narrators should just not read the male characters.
Good story ruined for me
