Absolutely superb. 23 hours long means no stone is left unturned with this, everything is covered in detail from the world Political situation to the action on the frontline. But it never gets boring with plenty of drama and a healthy dose of humour. The Aussie bloke reading it does it good job too.
"Over The Top"
I found this a tricky one to listen to. While the subject matter is interesting the extraordinary attention to detail got tiresome. Imagine someone taking an hour to get dressed describing every item of clothing in excruciating detail. I got a bit bored and switched off.
Excellent book, well written, well read. As a Partridge fan I was particularly pleased with the accuracy of the book, in terms of time-lines and references to his past works. A few in-jokes for the Partridge geeks, like Lynn's name never being mentioned but I'm sure the book works equally well for new comers too.
"Jolly good show"
The best one yet I think. Keep 'em coming lads.
I think Down The Line goes from strength to strength. A great concept, terrific writing and wonderfully performed. One of the best shows I've heard in ages and this third series is a classic.
After enjoying Dawkins' book on the same subject I was a bit disappointed by this one. I can't fault the accuracy of the contents, it certainly does what it says on the tin, but it comes across as ranting rather than educational. I appreciate books read by their authors but Hitchens' voice does get tedious after a while (sorry Chris). I found Dawkins book was far more enjoyable to listen to and more persuasive as a result.
"Another good one"
Another discussion from the boys, funny as always.
Karl's right again though, by all accounts Dodo's tasted awful and weren't farmed to extinction as Ricky suggests.
