I felt compelled to write this review as I was hesitant myself to purchase this book originally, worried that 29 hours of submarine action would be too much. But alas I love R C Bray (which Is how I found the series) and decided to take a punt...and I’m so happy I did!!!

I loved this series, they are fast moving, action packed books filled with characters that you’ll fall in love with. I can’t recommend this series enough. Do yourself a favour and take a punt, you won’t regret it.

What a surprise!

This is a fantastic book and was a wonderful surprise. Well written and beautifully narrated. If you enjoyed The Hunger Games, Divergent and Harry Potter you should enjoy this book.

Whilst this book reminds me of the above mentioned books in small ways it is most definitely it’s own unique, imaginative story.

I fell in love with this book. One of the best I’ve listened to in a while. The story was rich in detail and pulled on my heart strings.

A beautiful and heartbreaking look at family dynamics in an Alaska bought to life with wonderful descriptions.

Julie Whelan was amazing as always.

A wonderful conclusion to a brilliant series

This is my all time favourite audio book series from my all time favourite narrator.

Fast paced, wonderful characters, heart warming and yet funny too.

Highly recommend this series.

Inspiring, heartbreaking and amazingly honest.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Everyone should read this book. Deng Thiak Adut is brutally honest in his story telling and the ability to see the world through his eyes is life changing and inspiring.

What does Ben Mckelvey and Blessing Mokgohloa bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Ben McKelvey adds a level of detail to the book that allows you see and smell what you are hearing. Blessing Mokgohloa's narration is wonderful, warm and very easy to listen to.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, but not because it isn't a wonderful book, in fact quite the opposite. This book more than most made me have to stop and think about what I was hearing and process it. I couldn't listen to some of the terrible things that have happened it Deng Adut's life and then just move onto the next chapter. I had to digest it, mull it over and then keep listening.

Any additional comments?

A truly wonderful story that is still happening. As a middle class white Australian this book opened my eyes up to just how difficult it is for new migrants to Australia nut for refugees it's just so much harder again. Throughout this book I would imagine if these things were happening to my children, my family and it's a testament to Deng Adut's strength of character that he has managed to achieve the levels of success that he has. A truly inspiring story.

My only problem with this series is that I listen to them quicker than they are produced and they always leave me wanting more.

What made the experience of listening to Nemesis the most enjoyable?

I love R.C. Bray's narration and the story line is fast and engaging.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I really loved and enjoyed all of the characters. They were all well rounded and engaging.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

When you think it can' get any worse...think again.

Any additional comments?

I'm never sure about stand alone books, I've seem some work and others not so much. I was worried and hesitated to download this book because I love the series so much and thought it wouldn't be the same without the characters I'd come to love and know. Well knock me down with a feather it was fantastic. I should of trusted the author and narrator more.

It was a great listen all round.
