Peter Carey's construction of the Ned Kelly story is sublime. The narration is near perfection. This is a perspective of Australian history that both disturbs and delights. Read it!!

The story is intriguing and so perfectly structured. By far the best narration of any Audible book I've listened to. I wish all books were this good.

A good story if you like your characters flawed, like I do. The ending was close to predictable but not enough to spoil it. The narration was mostly good with the exception of the whiny child. This made me cringe every time. Should please anyone who likes psychological thrillers with everyday people.

I listened to this book often with a smile on my face. The character of Don Tillman is wonderful and his thoughts alone are hilarious. Okay, its predictable but if you're looking for a break from the intense stuff this is a literary holiday worth taking.

Confronting at times but so wonderfully honest. If you can't relate to any of Rosie's story you are lying to yourself. More please.

A truly refreshing read. I loved everything about it. The style, the pace and rhythm of the narrative, it was gritty and raw and your heart breaks over and over. I hope to read more from this author.

Spoiler alert... Eric Idle knows a lot of famous people. I am a fan of autobiographies and Monty Python so I thought this would be a treat. Frankly this is a just name dropping with a tease of stories that have no depth except to stroke a rather big ego. Such a disappointment, go read David Mitchell instead.

This is a great book, the people's stories are beautifully told. If you are interested in the quirks of the human mind then you won't be disappointed
