    Story

    I absolutely loved this book and although the listener knows from the beginning where it is going this did not detract from my enjoyment. The multiple narrators really brought the story and characters to life and added to the listening experience. This is so much more than your average chick lit and I was so involved with all of the characters and their stories that I felt rather bereft when it was over! I am a huge fan of Jojo Moyes earlier novels but found 'Me Before You' a disappointing listen - primarily due to the appalling narration. This was a welcome return to form and a compelling, uplifting listen.

    This is the first Lucy Dillon book I have read or listened to and without doubt it is my favourite listen of the year so far. I loved the characters, the story, the narration and could not stop listening. It is an intelligent chick lit book, mostly free of the cliches that so many chick lit authors use. It is beautifully written and ultimately life affirming.

    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes tales are rightly ranked among the seminal works of mystery and detective fiction. Included in this collection are all four full-length Holmes novels and more than forty short masterpieces - from the inaugural adventure A Study in Scarlet to timeless favorites like "The Speckled Band" and more. At the center of each stands the iconic figure of Holmes - brilliant, eccentric, and capable of amazing feats of deductive reasoning.

    It was my birthday and my wife, Karen, decided to give me a surprise. I had worked all day, so while I was at work, she spent the day preparing my birthday surprise for me. I had no idea what it was going to be, because if I had, I probably would have run out of the building as fast as my legs would have carried me. When I arrived home, Karen had me strip my clothes off and she blindfolded me.
