absolutely loved this story...good for the soul

the narrator was very good, I found his voice relaxing and easy to listen to.
the story always had me questioning what would happen next, and then surprise or shock me. Almost all of my emotions were felt reading this book. I found the dog fight scene very difficult to listen to and actually skipped it. But otherwise loved this book

a Sparrow falls / Wilbur Smith / Sean Barret

I have read all of the books written by Wilbur Smith, that on it's own tells a story. Since I have started procuring the Audible copies to enjoy them once more. This is the second copy narrated by Sean Barret, which I have thoroughly enjoyed and which complements the well written and researched book.

Book 3 did not disappoint!

Another great book by Wilbur Smith! Sean Barritts' performance was (as with the last 2 books in the series) absolutely incredible!
