Another wonderful book where Peter FitzSimons takes the life of Captain James Cook and turns it into a fascinating yarn. Michael Carmen must be on the same wavelength since he narrates even the foreign names and meanings without missing a beat. Together they give hours of pleasure. Thanks to both.

I purchased the book for the Motor Neurone Information first hand. For me there's too much footie. It will interest others no doubt.

I found nothing much of interest and the narrator has sinus inflammation by the sound.

I found this book very informative about a world period of the late 19th century. Having read Jules Verne’s book, and a similar one from Mark Twain, I find the travel details quite fascinating.
Kathe narrates beautifully with quiet calm expression.
All round an enjoyable audiobook.

Well written, read and interesting subjects. Catherine narrates beautifully and because the English is lovely it makes it all the more enjoyable.I tried 5 starring that but it didn’t click. My favourite story was the last one. I so admired the wise Judge.

Check out Desdemona review 31.8.19.
This is "entertainment"  but not a true documentary.
I can't work out why the original journalist had his concerns or doubts as to who was guilty and I wonder if he did. The facts were there.
It's different and fascinating as far as the Northern Territory is described and I'd like more on the NT.
The beginning of each section is just repetition and can be moved along.
3 stars for enjoyment.

Thanks for making this available Audible, because it is more than weight loss information. Along with scientific advice on how the body responds to food, there are helpful strategies on habits as well as taking the blame out of being overweight. Most informative.

What a great performance and so interesting. Every section has a new supply of fun and facts fabulously delivered by Stephen Fry. The support music was so good I looked up the artist Derek B Scott.
Thanks Audible.

The story of a killer. One star left off because the fruitloop who admired and sympathised with Moat, should not have been given airtime.

Really interesting to hear the inside on the death of Jim. Sadly it’s an interest case for the public but it affects so many in real life with enormous pain.
