Reviews

Fantastic!

(5 stars)

This is the best Oppenheime I've heard. So complex, such an unexpected angle, and I would never have guessed the ending! I rarely give five stars, but this one deserves it.

excellent story.

(5 stars)

This is my first Openheim book but I will now look for others. Intriguing twists and turns especially in the last chapter. Very well read. Thank you Librivox.

Great Story!

(5 stars)

Mixed readers, all of them good, but some of the chapters have some background noises and are hard to hear, but doesn't detract from the story.

IT TOOK LONG ENOUGH

(5 stars)

EPO has always produced a happy ending. In this one, I was beginning to wonder. Great story.

Great Story indeed!
