    • The best Audible experience on earth
    • If Audible had an option to you choose that ONE book that is 10* out of 5*, it would be this one. This is the future of audiobooks, that feeling, right there. That experience, this is it. If every book could be lived through the same way the narrators interpreted this one, the TV industries would go bankrupt. Thank you so much for this mind-blowing experience, this is a whole new level of audiobook quality. Your top fan, Ellen Ripley. —Ellen, Audible Listener

    • Best Thriller I've Heard in AGES
    • I don't normally take the time to write reviews, but this book was exceptional- and I say that as someone who basically only listens to psychological thrillers these days. It's perfect as far as an example of its genre goes. If you're sick of the clichéd and hastily written story lines that so often flood the market and are looking for a beautifully written narrative that will ACTUALLY engage you and take you by surprise, you've found it. —Aurorakruk, Audible Listener

Well done Dennis Taylor. Can't wait for the next book. —Donna G, Audible Listener

    • This is one of the first Audible stories I've listened to, and I enjoyed every minute of it. The candid approach to retelling their life out in the Alaskan Homestead made me appreciate not only what I had, but also what I have dared to dream of and made it happen, perhaps not at this grand scale, but as Mrs. Cobb reflects throughout the story, it is important to not fall asleep in life and understand what real freedom is. For those of us in the concrete jungle, we may not experience nature at its grandest, but we can appreciate it even at its minute scale if at all possible. —Anonymous, Audible Listener

    • If you have any interest in the entertainment industry, particularly from the late '70s through to the late '90s, then this is the book for you. The book is a well written and interesting record of how Michael Ovitz and CAA shaped the modern entertainment landscape. I found it interesting and engaging from start to finish. The narration is exceptional, you get to hear Ovitz for the prologue and the rest is handled by Dennis Boutsikaris to near perfection. One of my favourite reads/listens in the past few years. —Anthony Taylor, Audible Listener

The narration is beautiful and feels like you are listening in on peoples very smart and transformative conversations.

If you're someone that's still finding yourself, or as I am, figuring out changing family relationships as you and your siblings/cousins grow into adults, then I highly recommend you read this book. Christine Riccio puts so much of herself into these characters, and I loved that I was reading a book in which I felt like I knew the author.
