I do enjoy autobiographies and this was no exception albeit a long and hard slog at times. Overall I believe this book to be an honest, in-depth account of the Cameron years in office and his uber patient and tolerant wife and children.

Easy listening chick lit

Easy summer listening. Fairly predictable. Beautifully read. I don’t need to listen to it again but I did enjoy the story.

Thoroughly enjoyable. I liked the well drawn characters, the story, the twists and the various scenarios. Respect to Richard Armitage for his superb narration. All round good story.

Great duo - Peter May’s literary skills combined with Peter Forbes narration, I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book.
A revision of an earlier novel which is set in Europe rather than in Scotland but with the main character being Scottish. It’s an easy to listen to, good thriller. Highly recommended.

My favourite genre. The dramatisation was superb and the actors did great justice to the story line. Joe Cassidy (Brendan Coyle) played his part really well. Oodles of twists and turns kept me guessing right until the end. Highly recommended, would like more of these audible original dramas, please!

Another great DCI Daley book.
These ‘whodunnit’ books are my absolute favourite genre. I like Denzil Meyrick’s wonderful descriptors of the Scottish landscape and his novels are peppered with lots of Scottish colloquiums combine this with a cracking plot and it’s a win win read! Really enjoyed this.

Different!

Bought on daily deal and enjoyed it but don’t feel the need to download the rest of the trilogy. A bit too much of a gushing love story. Beautifully read.

As deal of the day i bought this. it was not my usual preferred genre but a most enjoyable listen. Covered some difficult subjects in a compassionate manner. I’m pleased I bought it & recommend this, a partially factual book.

One of the reviews suggested much profanity but I thought it was fairly tame in the great scheme of things. It was a well read, well written (albeit a little predicatable) first Dan Riley novel. Listened to most of it in one sitting and recommend wholeheartedly to those who like this genre. Looking forward to the next in the series.

Excellent - really excellent

I’m a veteran (different service), my husband (still serving) has had a tour of Afghan and I have worked for the army’s national charity, you would therefore assume I am well versed with the Afghan story. Wrong! This book showed me a whole new dimension; what really occurs in theatre. I was moved to tears on more than one occasion. You don’t know what you don’t know.
This is a well written, well narrated (a few blips) and very moving account of our war against the Taliban.
I am particularly pleased PTSD and mental ill health has been highlighted as by products of war. I’m hoping that all servicemen and women affected by PTSD are now getting the support they need.
An excellent read.
