Beyond Five Stars

What a powerful storyteller with a wonderful voice perfect for storytelling. The narrator presents his excruciatingly sad story with honesty. His choice of words is impeccable. His strength and will to overcome shines bright throughout the entire story. The ending is perfectly uplifting.

Excellent

Deon is a brave and exceptional storyteller. The content is difficult to listen to but he has a gift with words that has me marveling at his descriptions of some very mundane things. He is also wickedly funny. Something not easily achieved given the subject matter.

A must listen.

Incredible
