To quote the actress Miriam Margolyes , "Dickens is best read aloud". If you have ever struggled with reading Dickens in print form, rest assured that having the same novel read to you by someone of the caliber of Matt Lucas is a totally different and entirely wonderful experience. Highly recommended.

A fun listen but not my taste in stories

Could not really get into this book. None of the characters really interested me that much. Not a bad book, just not to my taste.

An enthralling tale. Gripping to the last sentence

One of Forsyth's best novels and the perfect introduction to this fabulous author. Thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to everyone.

Grenville writes like she was there ! Her characters are so real and the atmosphere so well constructed that the listener is transported back to colonial Australia. A wonderful story. Highly recommended.

Number three in the series of adventures of Loretta Lawson. Reading of the previous two books is not essential to enjoyment of this tale.

What a great story. Enjoyed it from beginning to end. It gave me a more clear insight and understanding of Aspergers Syndrome. Written with great wit and humour and a brilliant insight into the human heart and mind.

Enjoyable but did start to get a bit "same same" as some of the previous four books. If you have read the previous four books then this one is worth a listen if only to complete the set.

Peter FitzSimons has a way of bringing our history to life. This book is a bout a lesser known part of that history and is all the more important for that reason. The story is gripping and has the listener engrossed to the last line. Loved it !
