Publisher's Summary

Once a fortnight, Fred Crawford drives his battered truck on the toughest mail run in the world - across sand dunes, salt pans and the fearsome Stony Desert. For the men and women of the remote cattle stations on the way, Fred's visit is a welcome diversion, especially when he brings a new nursing sister for the tiny mission hospital at Birdsville.

But trouble also arrives. Two vicious men have stowed away, fleeing a brutal murder.

Alice To Nowhere is the story of desperate men and lonely people. It is an action-packed drama played out under the awesome influence of the vast emptiness of the Australian Outback.

    Story
    "difficult "

    a good book for the first 1/2 but so dragged out
    found myself yelling at the stupid decisions the characters made time and time again
    ended up skipping though the last 1hour in 15mins that was plenty of time and plenty of storyline to end the book

    I still enjoyed it though

    Story
    "Aspell stumbles on this one"
    If you’ve listened to books by Evan Green before, how does this one compare?

    I think I would've enjoyed this book in print, but I can only compare it to Clancy's Crossing, also narrated by Aspell. CC is MUCH better than ATN, particularly in narration.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Not sure. Aspell's dialogue in particular was poor. I am starting to think Clancy's Crossing is an exceptionally good performance, but Alice to Nowhere, with so many Australian characters, was read so poorly that I couldn't continue past the first 1/4 of the book.

    Story
    "You will love it"
    What made the experience of listening to Alice to Nowhere the most enjoyable?

    Evan Green is a brilliant storyteller. I am sat listening in the UK but, with the skilled narration by Richard Aspel, I am taken into the Australian outback with the heat, the flies and the drama between a man and his mates and a man and his woman. Alice To Nowhere will not let you down. Every mile of the journey to Birdsville is filled with a twist and turn as Fred Crawford tries to shake off this unwelcome guests. Great book. You will love it.
