I accidentally listened to this book first, not realising it was the 2nd in a series and I loved it so much that I went back and listened to the first in the series, Zero Day Code. It was gripping and exciting - can't wait for the next instalment!

Surprisingly good

I didn’t expect to enjoy this as much as I did. But it was a fun, rollicking ride, that was ultimately feminist in flavour. What’s not to love?

A delightful and inspiring celebration of women

This series moved me to tears more than once. It made me think about the women in my life. I helped me to realise that in our society women don’t often openly celebrate their unique relationships with other women, and we should. I loved this series so much.

Old book but interesting and well narrated

It was published early the turn of this century so it’s not exactly up to date. But it’s well read, entertaining, and enjoyable.

Fantastically well written - shocking, inspiring.

This wasn’t an easy read, but not because it wasn’t well written - it was. But the subject matter was loudly ringing true and disturbingly familiar to me. As a woman I live this reality every single day. As do all women. Narration was great too. I loved how this book celebrates women whilst challenging both the status quo and challenging men and society to do better and be better.

Couldn’t put it down

Fantastic book! Well narrated. Well written. Gripping. Highly recommended. As an Australian it really helped me empathise with our refugees who are being held on Manus Island. Also super impressive that the author predicted Coronavirus.

one of the best series I have read in years

I really enjoyed this book. My one issue with it is that it wasn't long enough to really develop characters substantially. I felt like I only knew the narrator - everyone else felt a bit one dimensional. I loved exploring this topic. It certainly rang true for me in regards to what many women around the world have and are currently experiencing.

What an amazing book!

What made the experience of listening to The Name of the Wind the most enjoyable?

I loved this book so much. It was amazingly written with great detail and beauty. And the narrator is so gifted! Seriously addictive listening. I highly recommend this book.
