As someone who supports people living with dementia, this was a wonderful insight into the challenges people living with dementia face.
Apart from enjoying a great story it has given me tools to support my clients in a more positive way.

Having read all of Elizabeth George’s books, this one must rate as one of my favourites. Good story, good narration.

I can't recommend this book highly enough, as with all Dr. Mate's books he has mixed science with extremely readable material.

I have in quick succession read all of Dr. Mate's books, each one of them has been really illuminating and given me a great deal of food for thought.

The narration by Daniel Mate is flawless and just adds to the satisfying experience of listening to the book.

This is a great adventure story, one to really get your teeth into.
The narrator is not bad but has no idea of South African accents which were not good; the horrible pronunciation of South African names and words really set my teeth on edge.

I nearly lost the will to keep on listening when ' bliksem 'was pronounced as 'bleaksome' - ag sies !

South Africa has great actors who could provide a way more authentic narration, this is a real pity as it definitely detracts from the flow of the story.

I savoured & enjoyed this wonderful audiobook, it is funny & interesting & I totally lost myself in it.
I realise what a clever writer Agatha Christie was, in her 'whodunnits' I always follow the plot & don't pay too much attention to the writing-probably a mark of an accomplished writer.
