A newly edited, single-volume commemorative edition of The Path to Power and The Downing Street Years; this is Margaret Thatcher in her own words. Combining her memoirs The Path to Power and The Downing Street Years, this definitive account of Margaret Thatcher’s life is published as a one-volume commemorative edition for the first time. Margaret Thatcher was the towering figure of late-20th-century British politics. Now, following her death, in 2013, this is the story of her remarkable life, in her own words.

From start to finish Thatcher delivered a marvellous account of her political life. to hear it from the iron lady herself was incredible and inspirational. detailing why she took particular decisions in her life and offering her opinion. I urge anyone politically minded or indeed anyone who wants to learn more about modern British history to read this book or better still listen to Thatcher tell you directly through this audiobook.

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.

This book is such a charming and delightful piece of sunshine. With a few twists and a lot of fun you can relate to every single character in there own way. The performance of this audio book was great and I loved individual characters, it brought the book to life and made me want to listen on and on! This is typical Dawn French humour which is lovely and welcoming.

Worldwide best-seller John Grisham goes rogue with his most suspenseful thriller yet.... Sometimes you have to fight dirty to get clean. Sebastian Rudd takes the cases no one else wants to take: the drug-addled punk accused of murdering two little girls; a crime lord on death row; a homeowner accused of shooting at a SWAT team. l Rudd believes that every person accused of a crime is entitled to a fair trial - even if he has to cheat to get one.

Captivating crime book. Hope that this is the first of a series of books for the character of Sebastian Rudd as I was left wanting more. The narrator performs perfectly and this mixed with the perfect story keeps you hooked.

August 30, 1975: the day of the disappearance. The day Somerset, New Hampshire, lost its innocence. That summer, struggling author Harry Quebert fell in love with 15-year-old Nola Kellergan. Thirty-three years later, her body is dug up from his yard, along with a manuscript copy of the novel that secured his lasting fame. Quebert is the only suspect. Marcus Goldman - Quebert’s most gifted protégé - throws off his writer’s block to clear his mentor’s name. Solving the case and penning a new best seller soon merge into one.

The story is gripping and multi layered. Its somewhat too long however that doesn't matter when the story sucks you in with twist after turn after twist. you think you know but you dont!
