The story is ageless, sad and brilliantly written. This was the most superb Narration by Clarke Peters. I couldn't stop listening.

I love this story. The narration seals the deal. This a true work of art told in the most entertaining way.

Likable but not as expected

It is understandable that context needs to be created however I thought there was too much about the history and personalities of other members of the Trump Family. The real dirt on Donald Trump only surfaces with any great extent in the last chapter or two. Never the less, an interesting read with some real insight.

The value (or otherwise) of good narration !!

I'm sure the underlying story might be interesting however the Narrator spoilt the whole show. I'm sure Leah McLeod is a professional however her attempts to 'Portray' countless different politicians, media etc, (Mostly Men) in different voices, just simply did not work. I gave it a good hard go and I love political commentary but I couldn't get much past half way on this one. I you thrive on this genre like me, don't go here....

The Best Political Book I've ever listened to !!!!

What an insightful account of a time in Australian politics, a time that was clearly out of control. I'm neither a fan or otherwise of Turnbull, but this man is clearly a highly intellectual personality who gained the top job with so many detractors and so many undermining influencers. A brilliant narration by the man himself. Worth every second of the 25 hours of listening. HIGHLY Recommended.

As far as Serial Killers go, this guy flew under the radar. This is a fascinatingly well researched book with a great deal of detail. The narration becomes very irritating when Amy Landon try's unsuccessfully to portray male characters voices. Overall though it was an interesting book.

These three guys are amazing. Karl Pilkington is a genius. How I could laugh so much at three guys talking about rubbish is beyond me. I listened to this Podcast series 3 times in a row. So Funny.......

On the surface this looked interesting. In reality, not so. I got through it but I struggled throughout.

Twisting and Turning. What a Fantastic Story !!

I absolutely loved this to bits. What a story! I loved the twists and was totally thrown by the final 30 minutes. Very clever writing and exceptional Narration. One important point to note, it helps to know Cricket. It can get a little detailed in that regard. For me, 5 Stars all around. Loved it !!!

Brilliant, Brilliant, Brilliant !!

I've never had such a blast listening to anything like I had listening to this. Unbelievably funny, profound, deep, wise, interesting in fact everything anyone would want out of an Audiobook. Brilliant!
