Loved this. A story that really benefited from audio format. Wide ranging with huge appeal I cried at the end partly for the emotional conclusion mostly because it was over.

Incredible story of escape through education. Not a misery memoir. One of the best Audio books I have heard. Would recommend to anyone and everyone.

Too long, too much myth

Well read but way too long and I only listened to the end for resolution of the ‘plot ‘ far too much myth and legend tied up in it which I really struggled with. I liked the interwoven stories but not the device that linked them. Nowhere as good as the Essex Serpent

Beautifully read, works really well as a listening book. Her early life interesting. She has the ability to make readers/ listeners feel they are privy to her inner thoughts. She writes candidly with fluidity. Even the later chapters describing some well documented episodes have the benefit of an insiders description. She doesn’t demean herself by criticising people with the exception of Donald Trump. She retains her dignity and demeanour but still manages to make it sound like she would be a fun person to meet and hang out with.
