Not for the easily offended.

I love the concept of follow the money, following 20 pound/dollar notes through snippets of time and seeing what the people who carry the bills are going through in life during their time with the note. The actual stories for me were not my cup of tea. They are dramatic and full of little twist, turns and surprises which are great but the language is very vulgar and harsh. (I usually listen to audiobooks while driving and cleaning but due to the language and descriptions in this book I could not; as harsh words were dropped often enough that I was afraid of my little ones repeating). The stories were also all alot harsher than I had anticipated and touch on a few controversial topics. The book was not bad it's just these things are just not my preference for books. I was given a copy of this Audiobook in exchange for an unbiased review.

Great money for the audio money

This is an audio that will teach you things about life and the financial state of a country. It will take you around and let you see every step of a bank note . From the first time a person touches the bank note till it goes around a few times. David Fuller opens your eyes and makes you realize what we humans take for granted

Mathew was a good narrator . His voice was strong steady and clear

It gets to you

Chance or fate is a part of our lives – a great part. Perhaps the greatest force in the universe. David Fuentes presents you with a story where chance plays a leading role.
So you follow a single banknote in each short story. You witness when it enters the lives of the people; or rather, how the people around the banknote enter the scene of this particular bankonte-theater and how it affects the people without them even knowing it. And suddenly, you watch how the fate of their life as it unfolds before your eyes.

And as you follow the banknote, you follow each story, the people in it – you become the part of the chance universe; you - just another chance reader/listener. For you could have reached for any other book/audiobook, but something made you choose this one, right here and now. You are a part of the scene now.

The language is so alive - and the stories so strikingly crafted.
I strongly recommend "Follow the money" to be read / listened to.

During the course of the story, an observant reader/listener will be rewarded by small Easter eggs: now and then, some of the people in this kaleidoscope of event have familiar names; so thus you get acquainted with ordinary people with extraordinary names like Ben Kingsley, Winston Churchill or Tony Stark.

All in all, a good story with a good performance. Voicing of the different characters works perfectly – the accents, the dialects – and even the special effects contribute to the good experience while listening to this audiobook

This is where I learnt about Money Laundry

The King of kings, and Lord of lords. This is how this book, a Tale of tales is being written and its narration was done exactly like that. Follow the Money. At the beginning, maybe due to my movements especially to the back-to-school scene, I could not grab what I was listening to, but in the evening when everyone was sleeping I now got to understand it well. There was a scene in one afternoon after having dropped home my son from school. In it, the scene that got to my feelings. The accident that single mother was involved in an accident and her head was smashed into pieces. I was driving, of course. I pulled over and rewound to re-listen to that piece. Tears rolled down my cheeks. This cannot just be a fake story, it has to be a reality behind the story itself.

Don't give them the money. Why? And what will happen, if you do? Mind the gap. Mind the platform; Our next stop is the Liverpool street, etc. These were familiar expressions I could relate to during my first visit in London in October 2011 and I was now hearing them in 2018. The book brought back that flashback. It was real for me. All I can say, is Thank you David Fuentes for making me to relive old memories through your book.

In this book, I learnt the phrase: "Expensive scandal". All scandals aren't expensive regardless the culprit? I can't give anyone the answer here. Please I am kindly entreating you to go get a copy of this book and listen; you will get a better picture. It will worth your effort and money.

Thank you.
