You went to bed at home, just like every other night. You woke up in the back of a taxi, over 250 miles away. You have no idea how you got there and no memory of the last 10 hours. You have no phone, no money, just a suicide note in your coat pocket, in your own writing. You know you weren't planning to kill yourself. Your family and friends think you are lying. Someone knows exactly what happened to you. But they're not telling....

I wasn't sure about this book after some of the comments but really glad I gave it a listen. The descriptive style fit with the mood the writer was trying to convey. it was well narrated and a story you wanted to find out the ending too.

Excellent narration which really added to the story.

The Cows is a powerful novel about three women. In all the noise of modern life, each needs to find her own voice. It's about friendship and being female. It's bold and brilliant. It's searingly perceptive. It's about never following the herd. And everyone is going to be talking about it.

When your life is a lie, who can you trust? When Maggie Taylor accepts a new job in Manchester, she is sure it is the right move for her family.

His phone is dead, and she has no idea where he has gone or why.

When Zoe Walker sees her photo in the classifieds section of a London newspaper, she is determined to find out why it's there. There's no explanation, no website - just a grainy image and a phone number. She takes it home to her family, who are convinced it's just someone who looks like Zoe. But the next day the advert shows a photo of a different woman, and another the day after that.Is it a mistake? A coincidence? Or is someone keeping track of every move they make?

Admittedly, it wasn't murder. A moment's carelessness, a tragic accident - and two children are dead. Yours. Living in a small island community, you can't escape the woman who destroyed your life. Each chance encounter is an agonizing reminder of what you've lost - your family, your future, your sanity. How long before revenge becomes irresistible? With no reason to go on living, why shouldn't you turn your darkest thoughts into deeds?

For the '70s child, summer holidays didn't mean the joy of CentreParcs or the sophistication of a Tuscan villa. They meant being crammed into a car with Grandma and heading to the coast. With just a tent for a home and a bucket for the necessities, we would set off on new adventures each year stoically resolving to enjoy ourselves. For Emma Kennedy, and her mum and dad, disaster always came along for the ride no matter where they went.

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook addition of According to Yes, the hilarious new novel by Dawn French. The Foreign Land of the Very Wealthy - otherwise known as Manhattan's Upper East Side - has its own rigid code of behaviour. It's a code strictly adhered to by the Wilder-Bingham family. Emotional displays - unacceptable. Unruly behaviour - definitely not welcome. Fun - no thanks. This is Glenn Wilder-Bingham's kingdom.

I had been excited when I read the synopsis for this book and was really looking forward to listening to it. It started off great. All very intriguing and full of potential. Further in I found the narrator very irritating, especially when reading the female characters - to the point where I almost couldn't bear to listen anymore. But I persevered. I found the conclusion a disappointment to be honest, but I think by this point I was just looking forward not to listening to the narrator anymore. Very thought provoking book and no doubt on re listening I may change my mind and conclude the ending works well.

Always loved this book, and was very excited to have an unabridged audiobook available. Superbly narrated by Imogen Church. A modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice incorporating the neurotic thoughts of a single thirtysomething women just looking for happiness. Warm and charming and laugh out loud funny - a fantastic piece of escapist fiction.
