Couldn’t get past 2nd hour due to a knocking noise in the background constantly. A shame as the story was almost gripping but the noise drove me nuts.

Don’t think I have read anything which explains the risks and ultimate disregard of the same so well. Passion for diving but without sugar coating. A human and tragic story well written. Loved it.

My favourite author brilliantly narrated once again by Peter Forbes. A bit Le Carre esqué and brilliantly reworked for good old fashioned story telling.

My only negative comment about The One is that it ended. Absolutely loved it and found it entertaining and engrossing. Won’t spoil the plot and you can check the synopsis but it was engaging and at just the right pace. Well done.

Fantastic adventure and insight into treasure hunting and pirates. Was sad when I got to the end because I was enjoying it so much. Pity Shadow Divers isn’t on audible. Good old fashioned boys own tale.

What a shame, book was fast paced and funny but it just stopped or ended completely randomly. I get it is an abridged version, but this was more like a trailer for a book. Had to double check I hadn’t only part downloaded.

Well done for narrating himself. Really liked Gary Barlow but he is a bit obsessive which was a bit irritating. 2 sides to every story and interesting to hear him open up about the Robbie situation. A bit too much about diets but if that’s his obsession then who am I to argue.

Overly long and lost it’s way on many occasions. The theory was good but could have been sharper and shorter ... much shorter for what it was.

Ben Fogle could just be one of the nicest people I have ever come across. In sharing the adventure and the effects it had on his family you really buy into it. I had seen the TV programme so knew the result but it was the journey that was the pay off. Thank You for sharing Ben

What a well written and engaging bio. Had me gripped all the way and intruiged by Chris if he had read it himself it might have been a five. Would definitely be one of my 10 dinner guests ...
