I really liked this book but then I like autobiographies and this book although it was fiction seemed more like an autobiography than anything else. I believe the author drew on her own experiences in life and the people she knew in her writing. I will buy her other books as I enjoyed this so much.

I'm afraid this book was boring for me. The author seemed to spend far too much time on her phobias and problems. None of them of sufficient importance as far as I could see to warrant writing about. Still maybe that's just me.

This is an interesting book. Gives an insight into some of the bad things in science. When I was young we were given milk at school as it was "good for us". Then later they told us it was "not so good for us". Now it is "good for us" again. This is the trouble with science. It is only as good as the day it is written and this book shows that.

I really enjoyed this book. Some of the articles were deadly serious and some were hilariously funny and Kate Binchys' narration was really good in my opinion. I wish I had read The Irish Times when Maeve was writing her articles. The world lost a great author when Maeve Binchy passed away.

This story shows the inhumanity of the Catholic Church in Ireland. To treat young mothers and their babies in this way is unforgivable. Listen to the book but expect to be made angry.

A very good story from start to end, well read in my opinion. I shall buy more of James Hogans books.

It is a shame Bryson felt it necessary to include the odd F word. For me this took away from a wonderful story and did nothing at all for the book. I am not a prude having spent twelve years in HM forces and now being an OAP.

It was an eye opener listening to what a non native thought of my country and made me think anew about the place. It was also very funny in parts. William Roberts is a great narrator and he brought the book to life. All in all I did enjoy the book.

Did not enjoy this book.

I did not enjoy this book at all. The author seems more intent in telling how much money he had spent and on what than anything else. There is a story in there and it is interesting but spoiled by the constant reminder of the money he had spent.

Most enjoyable account of the different counties of England. I liked how Clarissa spoke about the aspects of each county which I personally did not know. I was educated in many things. However this book is not for those who are anti hunting etc. For me I was able to ignore the references to hunting to be able to take in the rest of the book.

Steven Kynman narrated this book in such a way as to make it very enjoyable. A very funny account of the authors experiences in Tibet. Not the austere and bleak country you would imagine. Really good in my opinion.
