What can i say but a real twist in the tale, very difficult to stop listening even when others wanted to talk to you. You just could not wait to switch back on.
It also shows how someone from a disadvantaged illitetate background can turn their own life around when shown another way.
Well worth a read, it is not too long as this audio book really keeps your attention and when the end does come you want to listen again to bits you have forgotten.

This is better than the Di Vinci Code. It was one you did not want to turn off. The suspense was thrilling along with all the working out of the codes, you always expected them to arrive in time to save people, but this was unexpected.
Well worth a second or third listen as the plot is quite complicated and you miss all of it on the first listen.
