Shoddy editing ruined an otherwise good book.

Any additional comments?

This was a book I snapped up as soon as it was released but was massively disappointed with most of the chapters being cut short thus missing key moments. Despite this, it was still a great listen.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes I would suggest this and in particular to fans of Michael. A mixture of endearing and troubling chronicles of his life which help to better understand his life and problems.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Untouchable?

The battles with his family in particular his brothers were eye opening and sad. And the sheer greed of everyone around Michael.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not really. It's rather long and sometimes quite heavy with the facts and numbers. Definitely easier to digest in sittings.

Any additional comments?

It first read like a gossip column but through perseverance, it began to delve a lot deeper and I'm glad I stuck it out.

I am a librarian by profession, and I 'listen' to many books due to my hectic life. I do not ever read popular books as I believe they are usually a hype. However I recently decided to get this one. In short, I loved it. I lol-ed when 6 year old Clare told Henry he ate like a dog. It brought out emotions in me which I try very hard to hide. I think this book was compelling, more for the reason that it drew out a romance story so well, that it allowed the reader to anticipate feelings and emotions and to embrace them whole heartedly. I don't like happy endings anyway so this was also very realistic in a non sensical way. a fantastic, fantastical work of fiction!!!!
