Watson has brought together an amazing amount of comedy talent and given them astonishingly good monologues. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but after listening to the first episode I went straight on to the next six! Really, really funny and the little twists that come in later episodes are excellent!

Picked this up in the two for one sale without knowing anything, just intrigued by the premise, and I was not disappointed.

Excellent narration from Matt Addis, very easy to listen to and he manages to put across the confusion and emotional state of the main character very well.

The story itself is gripping and makes me want to seek out Smitherd’s other works. If you like tense nasty thrillers then this is worth a credit and a listen!

Joe Lycett breathes life into his reading and it feels like you are getting a personalized stand up set. It’s short, but jam packed with jokes and made me laugh out loud on the subway a number of times. Highly recommended. If you like his stand up then you’ll like this book.

Astonishingly good listen. Dirk Maggs and his team deserve your attention, because this is superb. Well acted, great sfx and a real sense of tension. If you're a fan of the Alien movies then this is well worth the purchase.

Brilliantly read by the author, So You've Been Publicly Shamed is well worth a listen. On a par with Ronson's previous efforts we are treated to an in depth investigation of public shaming that grips to the very end.

It's one thing to have an American narrator for a book set in Britain, I don't have a problem with that, but when that narrator chooses to use unconvincing plummy British accents then I start to get annoyed. The story itself is quite charming, but the listening to the book felt more like a chore than a pleasure.
