I managed to get to book 3 and gave up, the narrator is just unbearable. Does any one know what style of reading he's using?

It's like her unsure where the sentences end.

I couldn't bear him which is a great shame cause I think I would have listened to all the books by now.

The most recent book has the same narrator so there goes that.

very informative, gripping!!

I listened to this book every spare minute I had even foregoing sleep (keeping in mind that I am a sleep deprived parent).
It is very eye opening and informative and I highly recommend it.
I cannot do justice to all the points covered and I won't even try. it's essential listening particularly for parents in mix race families.
I will be listening to it again

loved it!

I could listen to the narrator read the phone book. He really brings the story to life. I loved the story and found myself laughing out loud in some parts.
The mix me humour and action is great.

I hope the next book comes out soon. off the find another book narrated by Scott brick now

I could barely put it down. It's a great story and the narrator really brings it to life. He could read the phone book and I would listen.

I couldn't stop listening. Cleared large tracks of time so that I could listen. My oven has never been cleaned so thoroughly ☺

Don't even think just get it, you won't regret it.

Awful narration!

I loved book one in this series.The narrator was amazing and the characters sounded realistic and credible.
Book 2 is an utter disappointment and giving up on chapter 5. As the other reviewer said, the narrator makes Danny sound like a thug and his team too. I could not bear it. I'm returning the book and will repurchase once either the narrator for book one narrates this one or another narrator does.
such a shame too, I was really looking forward to the series.

Thrilling

the story is great and the narrator is amazing. I listened to the whole book over two days.

it's immediately gripping and fast paced throughout.

this is the fifth day phonetic started this series and I'm half way through book 3. if you're a fan of action you won't be disappointed

Loved it!

this book has been an eye opener particularly with the references to cultural differences. I'd never understood why ppl seemed to misunderstand what I was saying and also the motives behind my saying it.

these things should be taught in schools. it would make life so much easier as we navigate our way around the ever increasing multicultural workplaces.

get the book. it will be immediately useful.

Its ok-ish as a conclusion but it wasn't as thrilling as the first two. I guess it may have been because I new it was the last in the current series. I listened to it because I needed to complete the trilogy.

Worth the price

This book is invaluable. Immediately applicable and nice short chapters.

I listened through the first time and now I am listening to make notes.

"Because I want to make copies." I laughed so hard I had to rewind the section. Trust me, when you get to this part of the book you will so get it. Hilarious.

Just get the book. I even got the hard copy before I finished listening to the audiobook.
