Fans of the crimson short one will laugh out loud as Chris Barrie reads the original book.
His skill and knowledge make this a must hear for all 'DWARF' fans
Sitcoms are always going to be difficult to write and original ideas are hard to come by but tjis is why this is so good. Almost social outcasts, their different perspective on life is great. The acting of course is first class as you would expect from Liz Carling and David Tennant
If you want good comedy with a great cast this is one for your library
No matter if it is from years ago or this week the observational comedy makes this a great listen. When the panelists go of at tangents you may even cry laughing. Sandy Toksvig struggles valiantly to keep order but fails almost all the time which makes it even better
This was the first Jack Reacher novel I heard and I have now listened again and it's just as good. The plot is as enthralling as all Lee Childs work. Reacher is only after one thing the truth! even if he cant stand the guy he's helping the truth is more important. You will be kept guessing right to the end but with Lee Child that is never frustrating just enthralling.
If you are a Jack Reacher fan you will love it. If you haven't heard a Jack Reacher story yet this is a great introduction, you will definitely download another!
Antoher great radio comedy.
At times almost predictable but always funny. The (mis)adventures of running a small garden nursery are captured here. The charcaters are so well played (casting is superb). If You want a gentle humour that will cause no offence but leave you crying with laughter this is it!
The only down side to this is there is no second volume and there shoud be!
If you like Jack reacher or even if you don't this book will keep you listening. one of the best of the Jack Reacher books so far. Always at the limits of legality and not always appreciated Jack is a one man legal system. his version of justice is tough!
Lee child has created a character that will live on for a long time, he seems to tap in to the subconscious and takes us to a place we all think we know, small town america. Because he fits his characters and locations so well with peoples mental pictures the stories come alive.
Reading is a little different if you are used to Kerry Shale (who I personally prefer) but still an excellent narration.
This is one of those rare books that seems to have been made better by being read - brilliant!
Loved the first series on the radio and couldn't wait for series 2 so bought from Audible. One of the best sitcoms of recent years.
David Tennant and Liz carling are brillaint as the anti parenthood couple. The way they see the world around them, full of other couples with kids and all the problems that brings is wonderful.
The humour is at times drier than a liquid Nitrogen Martini. However, it's always funny and very fast. This really is something you can listen to many times and always find a nugget of humour you missed the first time.
This is one to get and keep. You'll listen to it again and again.
Chris Barrie's reading makes this a great book. He brings authenticity to the characters. So we keep all the personality that we know from the TV cast whilst bring a whole new feel to it as coming from rimmers view.
The story is not as good as the first book but the reading and chaacters make up for this.
A must have for all "Dwarf" fans
If you like Lee child and enjoy the Jack reacher books this one is a must!
Everything you have come to expect and enjoy about this character is brought to life. Well written as always and a perfect reading make this one of the best audio books I have heard for a long time.
Another great episode of this brilliant radio comedy.
There is ionly one negative ITS TOO SHORT. Come on BBC lets have some more
This is no 2001, or even Sentinel. But it is well thought out, rounded and a great story. It is fairly short but Arthur is such an accomplished author the characters are well defined and presented.
Although short the tale is thought provoking and definitely a credible course of events.
Definitely one I will keep and listen to again
