I would recommend this book to anyone, regardless of their politics. David Cameron is open and honest about his time as PM. We get an understanding of his reasoning behind his decisions that worked or not, as well as acknowledging the things which could have been done better. We get David’s understanding of the views of those around him, and a modern look at what goes on behind the door of number 10.
We sea the human side, the things that shaped his views, and the sadness and grief which no parent should go through. We are taken on a journey which gives amazing detail, and we have an amazing look at his life and background. Well worth the 5 star rating.

This got a full rating because the author has told us her story in amazing detail. I only hope the author continues to thrive in her new life. Don't want to say to much and give anything away, but the journey that this author goes through to get the life she is entitled to, also takes us the listener on the journey with her.
Anger, sadness, and happiness are just some of the feelings I suspect you will experience from this book. There are some distressing parts though, just to give you the heads up.

Wow! What a book

This book is for anyone who wants to get a real life time view of North Korea. The difference of-course is that we the listener are lucky to b elsewhere. Yeomni Park gives us her story and includes an amazing view of what life is like in North Korea, and what the risks are of getting out and having a better life.

An amazing description of North Korean politics and life.

This author is amazing. To escape from his high-ranking job for freedom, despite everything stacked against him he gives us a detailed view of North Korea that few people could give.
This book is an excellent read for any one wanting to get some history about life inside North Korea, and what it's like at the top, as well as the lengths that any one wanting to get out have to go to.

An amazing account.

I gave this a 5 on all levels, because I love the audio journey and the atmosphere that is portrayed. The soundscape is good with headphones.

A fantastic journey in to the inner-workings of what happens at the top.

I would recommend this to any one who has an interest in politics and history, and how the big decisions are made. This book has got a 5 rating on all aspects as the authors have descried in as much detail as possible, what led to the events that took place over the decades, and analysed what was happening in the world to vring about such events. A great narrater also is a big plus, and all these reasons are why I had to get to the end quickly. Purely because I wanted to know more.

If you could sum up The Girl on the Train in three words, what would they be?

Unpredictable, twisted, and dark.

What did you like best about this story?

I love the strange way I felt sorry for Rachael, yet also felt that she had questions to answer. The end twist was amazing.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The best part for me is when Rachael realises the truth.
