OK Story of Unintended Consequences

Was decent, especially for being written in 1902. Narration was OK. Worth the buck or two I paid when it was on sale and now I can say I've read it (or listened to it rather).

In the spirit of reconciliation, Audible Australia acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
