A beautiful performance of a beautiful story. A must have for your audible library. I fell in love with Phillip as well.

Magnificent!

No-one else could have narrated this amazing book so well! Frank Muller, bravo sir! You did Stephen King and Peter Straub proud.

Totally enjoyable!

This was so great! I have read the book, and Wil Wheaton captured Andy Weir’s Mark Whitney character beautifully, his sense of humour, his philosophising, demeanour, everything. I did not want it to end! This is definitely one of my top audible listens.

Enlightening.

I really gained much from this memoir of Benjamin Gilmore. I chuckled, felt compassion, and felt genuine sadness and shock. I recommend this well written book wholeheartedly. And well narrated. However, the mispronunciations of certain Sydney suburbs did grate on my ears, namely Coogee, Clovelly and VaucIuse I would advise any narrator who is in doubt, or even if the aren’t, to check a pronunciation online first.

A Great Listen

A tale capable of eliciting sorrow, memories, understanding, closely followed by indignation and horror! It was superbly narrated. Well done all.

I loved it!

In these stories are tales of the human condition. Thank you, Frederick Waterman for writing such tales, and thank you to Scott Brick for bringing them to life. You are one of my favourite narrators, Sir! I recommend this audiobook wholeheartedly. Audible, you rock!

Too long

While the basic story is a good one, both the length of it and the many characters made it convoluted and a chore to listen to. I wonder if reading the book is a better choice? As an audiobook it was not a good one in my opinion. I liked the male narrator’s voice,however I also agree that he overdramatised many scenes. And I grew to dislike the female character. She may well have been a pioneer in her field, but the sacrifices she made of her husband and young son did not sit well with me. I did not enjoy the journey reading this.

A great whodunnit, with great characters. The narrators/actors were superb. I was sorry when it ended. I am an audio book addict, I love a good voice. But there is something wonderful about hearing my own accent (Australian) being heard.

I love me a good post apocalyptic read or listen, with the thought of me safe in my little place in my world, experiencing what Stephen King quite accurately refers to as “Delicious Fear.” But this story terrifies me. The implication of certain countries aside, this is a book that all high government officials around the world should have on their bedside tables.It’s so darn plausible.......

A gobsmacking tale

This audiobook was mesmerising.I dare not write a word of it’s content lest I spoil the awe I felt at it’s unfolding for others. Robert Harris, I loved it sir, Bravo! Roy McMillan, you read it magnificently. Thank you both. I recommend it wholeheartedly, I am definitely getting a hard copy.
