This compares well with the J.K.Rowling books. Turning into a brilliant series. I hope we don’t have to wait long for the next in the series.

I struggled listening to this to start with, the author’s tone seemed to be very difficult to take seriously. However I stuck with it and about half way through the book, it all started to work better for me. I will strongly recommend this book to my kids and my wife, the advice given is simple but effective. I will definitely take some time out trying to build the advice given into my way of being.

This has to be one of my favourite stories ever. Unique plot, brilliant narration. I do hope Scalzi continues the story line and Quinto gets to narrate it.

Found it over complex, too many characters to remember, poor English accents and about one third of a book too long. Glad to have got too the end without giving up. I do enjoy the characters though, so will no doubt read the next one.

Again I found this to be one of those rare books that keeps you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. If you like mysteries you’ll love this this gem.

A really novel way of tying the past with the present and crafting it into a gripping tale that gets you looking over your shoulder when you walk down a dark alley!

Disappointing, focus seemed totally on emotions and little on the plot. I must admit I gave up halfway through.

Rip roaring yarn straight out of “Boy’s Own”

A brilliant story that takes the listener back in time to the days of the raj. I have now downloaded all of the rest in this series.

I rarely come across a non-fictional book that is hard to put down, this one fills that description. Hard to believe the story it paints, very worrying!.
