    Story
    "Could have been better."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The only part i enjoyed was the beginning when it was set prior to the war in Burma.It was very dragged out and quite boring.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I just didnt enjoy it much at all.


    What didn’t you like about David Tredinnick’s performance?

    NOTHING. To me he sounded like a news reader or documentary narrator.


    Could you see The Golden Land being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes, it could be a movie as the base idea is quite good. TONI COLLETTE AND JOEL EDGERTON AS THE COUPLE.JACI WEAVER COULD BE THE MOTHER.


    Any additional comments?

    Very dissapointing. The main character was so naive and really annoyed me while she was travelling.

    "A gentle relaxing read"
    Where does The Golden Land rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Easy to listen to before falling asleep.


    Have you listened to any of David Tredinnick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Similar to the others.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it is too long for that (unless you are on a plane).

    "A simple kind of story"
    Where does The Golden Land rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Hard to answer this one as its a bit different from my usual genera.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That it was easy to follow, not any twists and turns that you had to keep track of as with some stories. This was nice for a change as I listen to a lot of mysteries and thrillers.


    What about David Tredinnick’s performance did you like?

    Pleasant to listen to and got the various characters voices just right.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, not really, though there were parts that had a bit of suspense and made you keep reading.
