It was like I imagine Mills & Boon with some sex
Generally I wouldn't consider the genre at all
Because of the poor writing the performance had no chance
All of them
I am amazed at this book's popularity. I listened after the great Potato Factory and it was just hogwash. I couldn't even finish book 2.
This is a masterpiece that seems to capture the essence of "the criminal class" in England and the classist ways of the ruling English in Tasmania. The colour of the characters is quite fantastic. The listener is trasnported - not only into another world - but into their grimy lives that strangely enough - are quite charming. I loved every second of the listen.
This is the first Humphrey Bower performance that I'm aware of - I will seek him out in future - Brilliant!
