    "Awesome. Very well written."

    I loved this book. It was addictive from the beginning. The characters were well thought out and you could feel their emotions. I remember getting upset myself from some of the happenings. An very good read.

    "Very moving, very complex"

    The story deals with complex issues of hurt, help, guilt, struggle and it's impact on current and subsequent generations. The characters are real, complex, lovable yet flawed (like the rest of us). While I thought parts of the book dragged, in the 90 minutes or so - all the pieces came together in a very moving, magical and emotionally powerful way. The reader is good.

    "Good plot and performance"

    The story was so well told and performed. I'd like to see a part 2. It was slow to start but kept me hanging until the very end. Definitely recommend.

    "Good Listen!!!"

    Like I said it was a good listen, but a little slow. Good listen. I like a book with tons a drama that will have me looking at my co-workers cross-eyed when they interrupt me.. but this was good too

    "Cambell continues to entertain"

    I've read two of Campbell's books prior to this one - 72 Hour Hold and Your Blues Ain't Like Min. What You Owe Me is more of a multi-character sketch like Your Blues Ain't Like Mine. It's interesting and I like Campbell's how people's lives fit together style. If connected character sketches is your thing, you'll enjoy this book.

    "Great Story!"

    The writer captures the emotions of the charactors brilliantly, not often recognised in many writers. The story wasn't what I thought and I was pleasently suprised, lot's great charactors introduced during the progress and development of the story, and very believeable to boot. Thumbs up to the reader also great mastery of the different charactors.
