Loved EVERY Minute

I just adored this book. It is lengthy and a real saga but I was totally hooked from the start. It is superbly narrated and the pace is excellent. The characters were convincing and well defined and the story, though complex, was thought provoking and convincing without seeming contrived or leaving loose ends. I was in another world whilst listening to this. Totally absorbing.

Riveting.

I'm completely overwhelmed and with tears running down my cheeks. Life is often unfair.
