I am really interested in trying out a life like this one. The Danes definitely have a way to heal and live well.

The narrator was a fantastic guide and I thank the author deeply.

This book was a wonderful listen.

This production is a must listen. I felt every character with visceral connectivity. The storylines are more than fiction because the climate of xenophobia, racism and the indifference misinformed by fear is at fever pitch now.

It's all very emotional on various levels. I recommend this production. Prepare to feel like you are a part of the conversation that will not stop.

I found it all insanely moving.

This is my first Ray Bradbury boo and I am glad that it is. He maps out a dystopian future in America where critical thinking is outlawed. He states the strategic role of technology in modern life. The book is a powerful look at when society is dumbed down and stripped of choice.

The use of thought and action speak loudly in this book. I resonate with this book highly. Tim Robbins is excellent in his superb narration. I had to sit and listen for fear of missing anything.

I will be getting a hardcopy version of this book.

One word singles itself out to describe this volume of immense authority.

Emma Dabiri takes the gloves off the demonisation and politics of black hair with precision and clout. This book is a tome of extraordinary facts and history surrounding the spirit of black hair and the corresponding resistance to its potency.

I am proud to say that Emma has curated black hair history for generations to come. In my personal opinion, 'Don't Touch My Hair' is a must read for all and sundry. True knowledge is applied.

As a male and a father of three young women, this programme is refreshing treatment of a natural and to be celebrated part of womanhood. The men's episode is a brilliant look at male attitudes this far. The second episode is a welcome space for women to share their experiences, and to educate the patriarchal society of the fundamental choices of women.

I am better educated about periods and all that is feminine that comes with it.

I am not a boxing fan, however, the personality that is Frank Bruno I am a fan of. His easy way and his booming voice that makes for a softer feeling is something I really love.

Listening to this book of the most painful parts of his life has been such a revelation. Frank writes with a simple tone. The narration by Ben Onwukwe makes Frank's voice become visible.

I was taken by the harrowing experiences Frank recounts on his path from mental illness to wellness. We are heading towards a new paradigm shift and I am happy that Frank Bruno is bringing more light to this part of our lives.

Thank you Frank for your candour and to Ben for lending his voice artistry to the telling of Frank Bruno's biggest bout.

Pure Magic.

I often wondered about the beginnings of Hollywood and who the players really were. And then this production arrives.

I was swept into a real world that once existed with the rich storytelling prowess of history and the perfect narration of Adam Roache. His deliberate and silky voice made the telling infectious.

I am so pleased that I followed my heart and chose this. What an epic!

I have enjoyed every book on this trilogy. I have learnt so much and I have come to realise that great stories live in us all. Kevin Kwan is a master of artistic writing.

I love the way he ties all the stories into one marvelous yarn. My heart said yes as I reached the end of this book. Tyersall Park made it. Now I can watch the movie. I hope there are more movies to showcase this tome of a trilogy.

What a grand finale!
