Some people might like it. I didn't. The story is dragging itself and I finished listening out of stubbornness.

This book should be mandatory for everyone in legislation to read.

Before I bought the book I read the reviews and it seemed like a great book. I kept waiting for anything to be interesting but nothing happened.

My maybe boyfriend, third brother-in-law, Milkman, the real milkman.. It felt like forever and alla I wanted was for the book to end.

This is a very important book!

I think that this is a piece of the history, the present and the future that needs to be told over and over again. We need to learn!

Both the story and the narrator is great. I've really enjoyed this book from beginning to the end.

The dystopian story itself is important and it could have been interesting. However, the narration makes the book very slow and it took several hours before I could enjoy the book.

The person who is performing the reading is really dull to listen to and I wasn't sure if I would have finished the book or not.

The importance of the book at the time we live now, when men wants to control female bodies is the reason why I finished it.

I felt encouraged when I've read it. It should be a must read for everyone in leading positions.

I don't like the narrator!

Overall it is a well written book, but as a Swede I did not appreciate the sloppy way the narrator pronounced Hans name. The narrator took no time to learn how to pronounce the authors name. How embarrassing!

This lack of interest in getting names right was all over the book, which I didn't like at all.

Reading Hans Rowling is a privilege and I am happy that I've picked up the book.
