  • "I wish I knew about this when it wa..."

    Overall

    I haven't laughed as hard for AGES as I did while listening to this - not only is the script incredibly well written, but the performances are brilliant, and the actors who are doing the voice work are all great



    The concept is amusing in itself, but add in the comedy stars who acted this and you have comedy GOLD! One of the best things is having Sophie Winkleman playing the Elven princess, because imagining her in the role will make any red blooded man smile



    I'm buying the second and third series as soon as I can to continue listening to the adventures, and hope that they're as brilliant as the first one is, or even hope that they're better - I will certainly look forward to the work of these writers on any radio broadcasts or audio books I find



    Giving this anything less than 5 stars would be impossible for me as this was the funniest listen I've had in AGES - long live ElvenQuest!

    Stephen Mangan stars as fantasy novelist Sam, who is whisked off to a Tolkien-style parallel universe by a noble elf, a sexy warrior princess and a feisty dwarf called Dean. It seems that Sam's dog is 'The Chosen One' destined to save 'Lower Earth' from the evil Lord Darkness (Alistair McGowan).

    Story

    While I love the ElvenQuest series, you can tell that this has lost one of it's writers, because there is no real cohesive story between the episodes in the 3rd series, while the previous 2 seasons had a running story, with the characters actually following a "path", and the ending of this series leaves you "wanting more", where the previous series had a firm ending point.

    The characters in this are fabulous, and the actors really know each other at this point, so the way they interact is fantastic, it's just a pity that the writing isn't as good as it was - the jokes are as good, and the delivery is still brilliant, but this feels like several unrelated episodes rather than a real story.

    One great example of the "average" writing is that Lord Darkness needs to find a bride in one episode, approaches Penthiselea and is (obviously) turned away, but the following episode there is no mention of him needing a bride - clearly it was only setup for the jokes that could arise from the situation, with no thought of where it fits within the overall storyline... Anil Gupta is good at the jokes, but not so good at a story...

    Stephen Mangan (Green Wing, Free Agents), Alistair McGowan (Alistair McGowan's Big Impression) and Sophie Winkleman (Peep Show, Red Dwarf) star in this fantastical new BBC Radio 4 surreal science-fiction comedy by Richard Pinto (The Armstrong & Miller Show) and Anil Gupta (The Office). Stephen stars as fantasy novelist Sam, who is whisked off to a Tolkien-style parallel universe by a noble elf, a sexy warrior princess, and a feisty dwarf called Dean. This is the third series of the six-part BBC Radio 4 series.

  • "Shatner DEFINITELY Rules!"

    Overall

    I love Bill Shatner, he's a charming character, an interesting actor and he really gives back to his fans, and this book gives an insight into the persona he uses for Shatner fans, including a lot of history of Bill's life



    Having met some of the Star Trek cast at various times, some are just boring in person, although they're interesting actors, but Shatner has a way of dealing with people that makes you just smile, he really is a great persona, and someone you want to go out of your way to meet, just for the memory you will take away from it



    This book made me smile so much, and makes me want to use some of Shatner's rules for myself, because they can only make your life more interesting and fun



    Well worth the listen, if you know anything about Shatner's work, then this is the book for you!

    Berlin, Summer 2011. Adolf Hitler wakes up on a patch of open ground, alive and well. Things have changed - no Eva Braun, no Nazi party, no war. Hitler barely recognises his beloved Fatherland, filled with immigrants and run by a woman. People certainly recognise him, albeit as a flawless impersonator who refuses to break character. The unthinkable, the inevitable happens, and the ranting Hitler goes viral, becomes a YouTube star, gets his own T.V. show, and people begin to listen.

    Well hello to you dear audiobook browser. Now I have your attention it would be rude if I didn't tell you a little about my literary feast. So, here is the thing: is it just me or does anyone else find that adulthood offers no refuge from the unexpected horrors, peculiar lack of physical coordination and sometimes unexplained nudity, that accompanied childhood and adolescence? I am proud to say I have a wealth of awkward experiences - from school days to life as an office temp - and here I offer my 18-year-old self (and I hope you, too, dear listener) some much needed caution and guidance on how to navigate life's rocky path.

    A guy walks into a bar.From here, the story could take many turns. A guy walks into a bar and meets the love of his life. A guy walks into a bar and finds no one else is there. When this guy is David Sedaris, the possibilities are endless, but the result is always the same: he will both delight you with twists of humour and intelligence and leave you deeply moved. In Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls, Sedaris remembers his father's dinnertime attire (shirtsleeves and underpants), his first colonoscopy (remarkably pleasant), and the time he considered buying the skeleton of a murdered Pygmy. The common thread? Sedaris masterfully turns each episode into a love story: how it feels to be in a relationship where one loves and is loved over many years, what it means to be part of a family, and how it's possible, through all of life's absurdities, to accept oneself. With Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls, David Sedaris shows once again why he has been called 'A humorist par excellence, he can make Woody Allen appear ham-tongued, Oscar Wilde a drag' (Observer).
