Kakkerlak

A colorful look at the life of special branch cop who is “reincarnated” as a cockroach.

JT Lawrence paints such vivid pictures with her words and Roshina Ratnam brings them to life. Such an interesting listen!

Apocalyptic

An interesting look at a single soul looking back at their apocalyptic life and trying to come to terms with their new existence. Ms Lawrence does a wonderful job creating an apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic world. Using her words creatively to intertwine the two without being melodramatic. Once again Roshina Ratnam gives the story life. The listener cannot help but feel what the character feels. An interesting listen about what consequences our decisions in life can bring us in the next life.

Great Read

Kakkerlak: A Short Story was a good quick read by JT Lawrence. This is a post-apocalyptic story that follows an apartheid-era cop who becomes reincarnated as a cockroach. I can't wait to read more by JT Lawrence.
