    • Grow your mind
    • Yet another master class, after reading all three of his books Sapiens, Homo Deus and 21 Lessons for the 21st Century I am left wondering how one man could possibly cover so much. To understand where we are, where we came from, and where we could possibly be heading, A true trilogy for the mind. Seekers you need look no further for enlightenment. For an inquiring mind, you have a feast on your hands here. I have yet to be educated in a more entertaining way. So many ideas to contemplate, you will never look at things in quite the same way. In a word, enriching. - Paul Murphy

    • No Sitting On The Fens About This One!
    • Jackman and Evans were two characters that I took to straight away in the first book that Audible published and I am starting to think that my relationship with them is going to go the distance. It's worth noting that they won't be for everyone, if you're looking for another Rebus or Frost with all their crafty ways and fractured personas Jackman seems to be cut from a more noble cloth so far. In fact to me in a way there's a genuine warmth to these books despite the grisly crimes that they are set around which shines from the characters. Of course it also has to be said that Richard Armitage's voice also radiates that warmth with his golden sunset tones and excellent character voicing. The story itself is immediately engaging and twists and turns leaving me guessing without groaning in exasperation at the ridiculousness of it all which has happened a few times recently. - Simon

    • Thoroughly enjoyable
    • This is a lovely drama that really brings the book to life. I enjoy Jane Austen's books, but sometimes find them heavy going in places. With this drama, though, I'm totally immersed in the story. Each character is brilliantly performed by a very talented cast and Emma Thompson is just wonderful as the narrator. If you're a fan of Austen I also recommend Northanger Abbey, another drama which was a joy to listen to. - Lily

    • Straight to the point
    • When it's hard to find a good therapist (don't give up nor avoid if you do need one) this book is a great insight into the many different mindsets we may encounter in ourselves or others. There is some relatable content and to appreciate how Mel Robbins works, I recommend her other book The 5 Second Rule - ideally read or listen to it first. I've gained immensely from it to kick start my life in my 40s (a mother with huge debt and no prospects) to keep going, slothing off old habits and fears, to know that yes it is simple, but It won't be easy. And that's ok. - K. Regan

    • An amazing character-driven story
    • Having wasted a lot of time reading sci-fi novels and watching B rate movies involving time travel, I'd kinda grown tied with the genre. Time travel cannot and will not ever exist. Something the first very excellent book in the series points out. And once you get past this and absorb yourself into the exceptionally written plot and character detail you'll be hooked. At times the build up and character interaction can be slow, but it's necessary and worth it. The detail and energy of the action, the subplots, twists and exceptional relationships grown by the main protagonists will make you laugh, cry and set your pulse racing. In Ben, Safa, Harry, Emily and the rest of the crew, there's a set of heroes you will be routing for. This could be an epic TV series in the making. - Mike Booton

    • Buy this audiobook at your peril
    • I already knew of the egotistical David Spade from his many TV and film appearances. DO NOT buy this audiobook unless you want to be mercilessly, relentlessly entertained for hour after hour. This horrible little genius of a comedian is annoyingly witful, causing me to lack concentration when driving and blow coke through my nose on one occasion. His prose and timing are embarrassingly good and, frankly, I just became tired of his skilled delivery and filthy observations, laughing until I cried. So, in summary, don't even bother if you like a predictable, safe, clean listen. Touche Spade. - Alex Guevara
