Brilliant in bringing history to life Forgotten all this since studying for A levels. And appreciated the author's notes, too. What a story to read during BREXIT!

Thanks, Misha,

Easy to listen to and very informative. Perhaps other world leaders could be subjected to the same analysis? Trump, Johnson....

Thank you, George, I understand a little more!<br />

I first worked as a volunteer Careers Adviser in Langa High School, in Cape Flats, in 2006. I was totally shell-- shockeded by the experience, not simply the poverty in the township or chaos in the school. It was the social attitudes and prejudices of the different races and classes that I found so difficult to understand. This book has helped me to understand a little better. Our NPO, Eyethu Careers Point, is now in the process of changing so that it aims not only to provide employability workshops for SA's disadvantaged youth, but to campaign for socio-economic justice. Thank you so much, George. I hope you are now in recover.

Fascinating to hear how the story develops. Never know what to expect of how the tale will deal for each character. Dotrice is a master storyteller!

Brilliant!

Not seen this on video, unlike Book 1 which I had, so thought I might be disappointed. But it was so well read and the story is so easy to follow, that, if anything, I enjoyed it more than Book 1.

Great!

Became more predictable towards the end
But still good entertainment. Well told by the storyteller

A good yarn if a little incredible!

Enjoyed it, but found that I recognised the ending before I got there. A story to weave by!

Very original!

Wonderfully original and humorous. Really well narrated. Hope there is Book 2 for this admirable hero.

As a lapsed Catholic whose parents paid for a school trip to Rome in the vain hope of faith recovery, this was fascinating, both because of the descriptions of the Vatican and of the portraits of the Cardinals. Then, bring in so many of the issues that trouble the world, let alone the Church, and you have a fascinating story. And, even better, an optimistic ending! Very enjoyable.
