Well written, lots of believable characters and truely Irish in its writing style. People who don't know Ireland or the modern Irish may struggle with its colloquialisms but it's a great read none the less. For me I enjoyed reading a crime novel on topical subjects, set in a rural area in country I live in and of my birth, in my own style of english language and way of thinking!

A great apocalyptic thriller, and a very different type of apocalypse! Not a zombie to be seen. Good narration and good character development. Really enjoyed it. on to the next book in the series. Also it's a movie on Netflix starring Nicholas Cage amongst others.

A joy to listen to. Not just the wise musings of a wise old Holy man but a story too. Actually a lot of stories of the pilgrims who come to see him and the old man and his monks.

I have always struggled with the idea being a 'good' Christian. I am skeptical Gen X, who grew up in a country where religion was used a weapon for war and terrorism. Many people I grew up with are now atheist or practice their faith with hypocrisy &/or difficulty. In this fascinating, warts-n-all, page turner of a book Nadia Bolz Weber, through her own and others life stories, gives me/us permission to reconnect to God and be edgy, damaged, questioning Christians. God bless all the 'saints n sinners' of the world.

Loved this Audible production. Very sad and mysterious true crime storey. Amazing background soundtrack, good interviews with those who were there at the time and others important to the investigation.

Narration great. An amazing Audible experience, better than any book you could read about the crime. The presenters give you a balanced view of the whole story, you will have to make up your own mind. Highly recommend!

Who knows?, because this production will take this tragic event to a wider audience maybe, just maybe, someone might come forward with information that could solve the crime and bring peace to Sophie Toscan du Plantier's family. May she Rest In Peace.

Basically a good fly on the wall story that reads like a one person play. What was interesting was my own personal responses to what was going on. I spent a lot of time trying to understand a family & sibling dynamic completely different to my own experience.

I think a psychologist would have a field day with this, but in my own case it became a reflective thing as I felt strong emotions about how this family or sister did things. Thus I had to ask myself "Is the narrator the most devoted/ annoying / doting/wimpy/frustrating sister in the world or is this more to do with my own baggage?"

A short but intense drama on sister/ brother relationship, family dynamics & status within the family.

The setting and the characters makes this book. A most enjoyable listen, I was entranced by the fascinating 'lifestyle' of living in the world's coldest climate or I was on the edge of my seat with the thriller aspect. My only small gripe is that the storyline was a tiny tad predictable if you are used to this genre.

A bit dated now (it ends over ten years ago) but a well written insight into Martha Stewart, her background, personality. and business savvy. Great read for the female (& male) entrepreneur, if a bit daunting as nobody is going to be Martha and not everyone is that driven or comfortable with being that driven. Her strength through her trial, incarceration and her return/comeback is inspiring to anyone.

...As only Martha Stewart could do and with such grace. If you only listen to one entrepreneur book make it this one!

As I start my new business I now think "What would Martha do?" or "What did Martha say about this...." The book has become my reference to go back to again and again.

My favorite bit of wisdom was: when you see trouble coming you are entitled to overreact or feel upset but never panic and then she explains why "panicking" is so bad for business.

Women in business will be particularly inspired, not that it is strongly feminist, more that Martha Stewart takes a strong yet different approach to business that I first noticed in her Apprentice Series.

What also makes this audible book great is that Martha Stewart is the narrator, which adds such a personal dimension. Go Martha!
