"Di Morrissey writes long juicy page turners; flowing sensational sagas." ( The Age)

Typical Di book, disappointing reader

If you could sum up The Road Back in three words, what would they be?

Superb detailed description

What other book might you compare The Road Back to, and why?

Any other Di Morrissey book, she is the master in taking the reader to the places her stories are set in.

What didn’t you like about David Tredinnick’s performance?

I understand why a male read the story this time as the main character is male but something in his voice was not pleasant to listen to and the way he made the many female characters sound was a bit offputting, even some of the male characters were just not right. It definitely made the experience less enjoyable for me. Please let a woman read your stories!

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Don't be afraid of change.

Any additional comments?

Another great escape story as you are really transported to the beautiful surroundings of Neverend and learn to appreciate and love the characters and their descisions in life.
