5.0 out of 5 stars A cliche I know but this is a must-read..., 5 Mar. 2010
This review is from: Against All Odds (Paperback)
Reading this book was at different times a painful, funny, emotional, poignant and ultimately uplifting experience.The resileince of the human spirit has never been better illustrated than within this book's pages.

It is also a damning indictment of the institutional 'care' system in post-war Britain and the establishment responsible for creating and running it.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

Can someone help when buying a book for a kindle when it says text to speech does that mean that book can be read to you.....sorry not very good with these things....lol

Yes that is the idea. The voices on the kindle sound similar to Steven Hawkings speech machine at times.

You've probably found out now - Aa on the keyboard and "Text to Speech becomes available. Rather monotone and not very good with the punctuation and 'reading with feeling' but if you can't be bothered to read - its OK ... ish! lol
