Wonderful as usual. A great way to fall asleep naturally. I listen most nights. I love it. Just one negative is the loud male voice at the end announcing "this is audible".

I did not enjoy this book at all. Absolutely, totally boring, The narration was annoying too, The female narrator had to assume many different male characters and this in itself made the listening experience one of aggravation. I can find nothing positive to say about this book except to say it was a relief to reach the final chapter

Honest account of the experiences of a Paramedic. Told from the heart. Not always easy to listen to but leaves the reader with a true appreciation of the dedication of the men and woman who are able to perform their tasks often at great personal emotional cost to themselves. Very clear narration.

Really enjoyable

The narration was very expressive. I thought that the way the author wove the interaction between the family around the game of backyard cricket was very ingenious. A really enjoyable listening experience.

I loved everything about this book. The narration was wonderful and the hardships faced by the author whilst in the Curtin Detention Centre certainly makes you think twice before uttering the phrase, Go back where you came from. I would certainly recommend this book. It gladdens the soul when humanity prevails.

Excellent historical study

Captivating and un izsed Captivating and unbiased account of The Knights Templar. One of the best narrators I have heard since joining Audible. A great listen.

So far, this is one of the best books I have read this year. Many politcal facts relating to the Cold War are revealed. The Spy's attempted escape from Russia is gripping. Will he make it out alive? This is one book that fits into the category of 'not being able to put it down'. I now need to catch up with some sleep as I listened to the final chapters until the early morning!

I did find this book interesting although there were many French phrases which, at times, interrupted the linguistic flow. For those who do not speak French, this can be somewhat confusing. The author reveals many facts about how the Rothschilds were able to amass such a forturne by manipulating the stock market to their advantage and using other people's wealth in order to create their own. A worthwhile read.

This is a very interesting biography which details otherwise unknown facts regarding Banjo Patterson's colourful life. Having Henry Lawson's life described alongside that of Banjo's was doubly interesting. I thought it was a little slow to begin with but the description of Banjo's family lineage was necessary early on in order to give meaning to Banjo's tilt on life. The difference between Banjo's career opportunities and those of Henry Lawson's could not have been more marked. The narration was clear and enthusiastic. Overall I found this book to be a worthwhile listen.

An exciting psychological thriller with many unexpected twists and turns. The narration was excellent. This book held my attention from beginning to end.
