    Always leave a little salt on the bread. Ikey Solomon's favorite saying is also his way of doing business, and in the business of thieving he's very successful indeed. Ikey's partner in crime is his mistress, the forthright Mary Abacus, until misfortune befalls them. They are parted and each must make the harsh journey from thriving nineteenth century London to the convict settlement of Van Diemen's Land.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Potato Factory to be better than the print version?

    The narrator manages an excellent variety of voices and accents he really brought it to
    Life


    Any additional comments?

    Fascinating insight into early colonial history of Australia and the circumstances in England that lead to transportation

    Nearing her 100th birthday, Roseanne McNulty faces an uncertain future, as the Roscommon Regional Mental Hospital where's she spent most of her adult life prepares for closure. Over the weeks leading up to this upheaval, she talks with her psychiatrist, Dr. Greene, and their relationship intensifies and complicates. Told through their respective journals, the story that emerges is at once shocking and deeply beautiful.

    Would you be willing to try another one of Stephen Hogan’s performances?

    Yes - if it was a male person as the key story teller. I felt this was a weakness Rosanne was the main person and it was confusing when you continuously heard a male speaking


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It was a good story but was a bit dark and confusing sometimes


    Any additional comments?

    No...I have loved all the other audible books
