This book had me hooked from the first page, we have preconceptions about refugees and this book makes you think again. it's well written and fastpaced, loved all the characters in this book and the narration is excellent.

Good read,

I enjoyed reading this book, the characters were well structured and the story was well layered and It kept me up reading at night wanting to find out what happened next, there was a few twists I didn’t see coming. The narration was fantastic, I do love listening to a Irish accent this book is well worth the credit. Highly recommend. I also think this book deserves a better title.

Well worth 5++ Stars

One of the best books I’ve listened to in a long time, I started reading and didn’t stop for 2 days until it was finished a book hasn’t swept me away like this in a long time

I have read a few of John Nicholl's books and he never fails to disappoint, this is a story of a woman taking revenge on cyber predators and she sure does a good very job of it, Jake Urry brings life to Mr Nicholl's books in the most creepy way.

A wonderful combination that never fails to dissapoint,

I think a lot of teenagers would relate to this story, I know I did, a time of growing up and drinking too much and not understanding the line between having fun and having a problem, I think the assault and club scene were very true and I'm sure there are a lot of young girls who have gone through similar situations and not had the strength to do anything about it. Yes, it made me see my young adult life in a new light, I think every teenager should read this book.

Once every year, Scoutmaster Tim Riggs leads a troop of boys into the Canadian wilderness for a weekend camping trip - a tradition as comforting and reliable as a good ghost story around a roaring bonfire.

Until a stranger bring a virus to their camp which infects the scouts and the nightmare begins, trapped on the island with no way off the boys have to learn and put into practice true survival skills whilst waiting to be rescued

A good scary story that will keep you wanting more and great narration. Not recommended for the squeamish.

This is a story about a lovely man called Ove who would prefer to be left alone to get on with the things he wants to do, but circumstances occur to stop him and as he gets more involved in other peoples lives his story unfolds, this is not a sad book in fact in places its very funny, but it could be based on anybody life and how we see our selves as being alone when in fact we are not, we are surrounded by people and the Cat, you will love the cat.

This is a very good book and I throughly recommend it.

There were parts of this book I thought, that's not going to happen, then it did, so it was not what I was expecting, it wasn't a twist so much as a shock,
