Summary

On 31 January 2002, The Boston Globe published a report that sent shockwaves around the world. Their findings, based on a six-month campaign by the 'Spotlight' investigative team, showed that hundreds of children in Boston had been abused by Catholic priests and that this horrific pattern of behaviour had been known - and ignored - by the Catholic Church.
Instead of protecting the community it was meant to serve, the Church exploited its powerful influence to protect itself from scandal - and innocent children paid the price.

Truly Shocking!

After watching the movie more than once and rating it as easily one of the best movies of the last decade I was a little apprehensive about listening to the same outline story on audiobook. In fact being able to identify characters I already knew about was what made this all the more of an engrossing listen, despite the subject matter and content.

This was a story that just had to be told in this way and it managed to go into far more background detail than the movie did. A totally engrossing, shocking and disturbing expose into the corruption and evil that did, and some say still does, fester within teh Catholic Church. FIVE STARS

Shocking but a bit dull

The material is as shocking and compelling as expected. What's lacking is a coherent narrative. If you want the facts, this is great but don't expect to be engaged by the sorry of how all this came to light. Narration is ok.
