  • "spine-tinglingly good!"

    Overall

    A haunting compelling and at times desturbing dramatisation, it had me gript from start to finish. With it's all-star cast, sinister music and scarey sound efects, this is a must for all horror fans, as ones who are new to the horror style. This book has been very well adapted for radio and is overall a stunning peice of radio theatre. I rate it 10 out of 10!

  • The Barchester Chronicles: The Small House at Allington (Dramatised)

    "Never palls"

    Overall

    You just can't beat Trollope - and this is a lovely dramatisation. The odious Adolphus Crosbie slimes to perfection. One to listen to over and over again.

  • "A good novel to sleep by"

    0 of 0 helpful votes

    I enjoyed my regular listening slots throughout, but I really can't say that an awful lot happens in this book, although at the end I am aware that I have come to sympathise with a collection of rather ordinary, everyday, slightly flawed but very decent people who inhabit this privileged corner of historical England. And THAT's the charm, I guess. Patrick O'Brian,say, engages the reader much more directly - but this is authentic in a way that modern historical novels can never be.

    One of the most respected, successful chroniclers of 19th-century life, Anthony Trollope is still widely read and much-loved today, and The Barchester Chronicles - witty moral comedies with a wonderful range of characters - are among his most popular tales.

    The Small House at Allington explores the power of devotion, in the form of Lily Dale's love for self-seeking Adolphus Crosbie.

    Featuring a fictional version of himself - 'Marcel' - and a host of friends, acquaintances, and lovers, In Search of Lost Time is Proust's search for the key to the mysteries of memory, time, and consciousness. As he recalls his childhood days, the sad affair of Charles Swann and Odette de Crecy, his transition to manhood, the tortures of love and the ravages of war, he realises that the simplest of discoveries can lead to astonishing possibilities.

    There is now no doubt that not only is Waiting for Godot the outstanding play of the 20th century, but it is also Samuel Beckett's masterpiece. Yet it is both a popular text to be studied at school and an enigma. The scene is a country road. There is a solitary tree. It is evening. Two tramp-like figures, Vladimir and Estragon, exchange words. Pull off boots. Munch a root vegetable. Two other curious characters enter. And a boy. Time passes. It is all strange yet familiar.

    The dour, Mr. Darcy is anything but popular with the Bennets, especially when he fancies a member of their clan. And as Elizabeth reluctantly deals with Mr. Darcy's advances, their romance seems destined to fail. Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice set the standard for romantic comedies when it debuted in 1813, and it still speaks to audiences worldwide through countless adaptations.
