Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Theses stories where captivating and include almost every thing you can think about, deceit, murder and secrets are just a few of the things that will intrigue you. The story flows and kept my interest all the way through. You will not be tempted to speed through any part of this book. From the very beginning of the first story I was engaged and listened to the first one twice and replayed some parts of the other two stories. I went to bed thinking and trying to analyze the stories and wondering about how human nature is so complex and people so multidimensional. Yes I highly recommend this audio book.
What other book might you compare Escaping Psychiatry to and why?
I cannot think about any book that this remind me of but I am a big fan of the TV show "Lie to Me", this book remind me of this show.
What aspect of Alan Cooke’s performance would you have changed?
