Inspiring and moving.

I’d seen the film before listening to this. Actually my mother is an extra in the film. Saying that I was truly moved by Paul’s actual story and don’t think I would have been as strong as he was.

It’s tough listening at times but diffused by humour and warmth. You feel like you take Paul’s journey with him.

Having worked briefly with Jules in Swansea I can say she’s just as described and a lovely human being. I’m glad Paul found her.

I’m not a fan of talent shows but that’s not what this book is about. It’s about a person who overcomes overwhelming odds and comes out on top. Brilliant listening and I wish him well in the future.

Listen, you won’t regret it.

an Interesting Listen

Would you listen to One Chance again? Why?

There is more to Paul than what you see on TV. He comes over as a very thoughtful, kind and caring person. A great pity that he was not treated as such thought his life.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Paul
