Narration is absolutely awful, just completely monotone. Story was slow. Do not get the hype unfortunately.

I enjoy Trevor Noah on The Daily Show but did not think I would be as taken with this as I was. Enthralling for the start. He has lived a life and his narration is first class. One of the best books I have listened to period. Do yourself a favour and listen to this.

This book is essential reading in my opinion. Opened my eyes to a lot of things and I wish I had this information years ago.

Found the first half of the book fascinating but it lost me a bit towards the end. Much too much was made of the House votes and a largely symbolic gesture. Still an interesting story that needed to be told though.

Story is interesting, without being anything fantastic. Love how Phil claims to be the victim when Nike's sweatshops were exposed. The narrator was terrible, he sounded tired and bored the whole time.

Fascinating!

A fascinating dive into Saudi Arabia as a whole and MBS. I did not know the first thing, but found this book to be captivating. Highly recommended, narrator was also great!

Absolutely loved this. Initially wasn't a fan of the descriptive writing, but it really grew on me. Fantastic story, vividly painted life in Brisbane in the 1980's. Narrator also did a great job.
