The author was just a young girl who was with her family on board and she tells the amazing stories of many of the passengers. It still shocks me to hear what these poor people endured in concentration camps, in gulags, hidden in convents, holes in the ground or hidden in attics.
Interesting to hear too, about their lives in Australia and New Zealand and how hard they worked. This us one of those books that I will think about for a long time. 5/5

I enjoyed the first half of this story but it seemed to take me a long time to get through the last part. 3/5

I found this one a nice piece of light watching. Emilia Clark was a delight to watch and provided the perfect mix of airiness and drama that the character needed. 4/5

Soon Bob and James are inseparable and become famous with clips of them together watched by millions on YouTube.
I really enjoyed this one, showing that love can come in many forms and from different creatures. It was also awesome that the real Bob got to play himself in the movie as well as a cameo from the author. 5/5

At the core of this book is a love story, of the couple that spent all their time together, of love notes left any time they spent apart. 4/5

This one for me was a bit of a dud. It seemed to be lacking in any cohesive story, just a series of car chases and shoot out scenes. A bit of a worried looking daughter and two obviously bad guy cops. All I could think throughout though, was that Liam looked bone tired like he just needed a good lie down on the couch and a good burger and fries. Thank goodness it is the final of the three part franchise - you have a rest now Liam. 2/5
