This book and the first were a lot of fun that unexpectedly drew me in with this lovely journey. I thought both books would be a wonderful gift to People from overseas who are fascinated with the Australian lifestyle and the spirit of the bush. Both books very refreshingly address black/white relationship issues in a very fair and realistic way. Well done for this Tony.

My only negative about this latest book is the sense of loss when it finished! Love the characters and the intertwined plots. Above all what a fabulous way to brush up on European history. John Lee is an excellent narrator and does superb justice to Follett’s characters. Overall a superb book - I probably might have enjoyed the two previous Kingsbridge books slightly more but that has not detracted from my thorough enjoyment of this book. Ken Follett sets a high standard. Thank you!!

Well done LJ Ross - not sure where you get your never ending inspiration from. One of the very good features about these books is the extent to which she weaves the beautiful Northumberland landscape and its features into the books. The plots and characters are authentic - I loved Cragside - having been there I could picture all the detail. The narration is superb.

Well done Timothy Snyder (again) - this book is arguably the most important bit of literature in our current times. Nobody has so eloquently summarised the perils of the current world in a way that is simple and direct. The book provides practical and critical advice - to promote democracy and to be attuned to creeping perils of fascism and tyranny. To all the disenfranchised young people of the world - please listen to this book. I am going to buy hard copies to give away.

Well done again Geraldine - a master at historic fiction - fascinating story and powerful writing - with strong emotional impacts. Congratulations too to Edwina Wren the narrator who managed to bring the characters to life in such vividness and depth.

You won't be able to stop yourself from listening to all 3 of these novels. Great storyline, magnificent performance by Jonathan Keeble. Great landscape images too
