I loved listening to the narrator. I liked all the german names and police stuff. I think the story could have had more twists as it was a little straightforward, it could have been a little deeper. But if a 2nd one came out I would buy it as I liked the characters.

delicious

this short book was ear tinglingly wonderful. 3 trips to work in lockdown and it was done. I was sad that it left but I know it has gone to work in the conveniance store where it will be happy. I wish I had not heard it so I could listen to it again

I take students to the Old Bailey every year so they can see a day in the life of a trial. Anyone can queue up and go in. This book is excellent, brings the sadness of life to the fore and shows us a side of life most of us hopefully never see.

muchas gracias

this course takes you from zero to hero. I have listened to it 4 times in the car. Its a refresher, 3 tenses, very basic vocab. A good way of remining you how to speak holiday Spanish.

fun but so old fashioned

This is one quarter of a story......just ideas with no resolution, interesting ideas but not taken forward. Maybe there is a book here in the future

Gladwell is so convincing in his storytelling I wonder if its all true. I have read them all and often quote them in teaching. They are well read yarns about life and how rubbish we all are at interpreting it. It`s a wonder we all survive past childhood.

wanted to like this......didn`t

I loved the first galaxy book, so much so I listened to it twice, unheard off. The second one started slow but built up to something I really enjoyed. I warmed to it about one third of the way through. then Mr Crowshaws wonderful repartee won me over. Well worth a listen but I am not sure there should be a third.
