Jennifer Saunders provides the listener with an exquisite insight into her life. She exudes positivity even through the toughest of times. She has an exceptional love of life and shows such gratitude for every moment of it. The book is narrated in such a personal manner that you instantly become the sole intended listener.
I loved listening to Bonkers, I laughed so much and enjoyed every second of the enthralling narrative. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone. Funny and upbeat, you cannot fail to enjoy it.

A truly inspirational listen.

I can only thank Chris for writing this book and putting it into an audio format. The book is unbelievably engaging, informative and eye opening whilst incorporating wonderful wit and sensitivity. The audiobook provides the listener with not only a descriptive narrative that places you in Wandsworth with Chris but also gives the listener additional chapters not included in the written format. I have yet to listen to or read anything as inspirational as this. It is definitely a book that I will repeatedly revisit.

A wonderful account of Sue's travels in the East (made even more vivid if you watched her series on the BBC) and a raw insight into the loss of her father to Cancer. Sue narrates with such passion and personality. The book is stunningly detailed and deeply emotional, causing me to laugh and to cry. I thoroughly recommend this book.

Really fascinating and a compelling listen.

A very informative and fascinating account of how the Golden State Killer was identified, the heinous crimes that he committed throughout his horrific spree, who he was and what became of him. This is an extremely well constructed series, featuring interviews with surviving victims, members of the forensic team, law enforcement and the FBI involved in the case. It is a compelling listen and one that suits a good binge listen.

An absolute joy!

I loved this book. So much so that I listened to it non stop from beginning to end. Susan Calman was wonderful as ever. Her "Calmanifesto" is fabulous and as always, she delivers uplifting ideas and experiences with great wit and energy. I thoroughly recommend this book.

Loved it!

Romesh presented a brilliant and funny account of his career in his usual sarcastic and understated manner. Thoroughly enjoyable and it will be great to hear the next installment to his memoirs in the future. I would definitely recommend this book and warn the listener that once you start, you will find yourself devouring it in one hit.

Exceptional.

This is a truly remarkable series that provides a rounded insight into gang violence within the Lebanese Community in New South Wales, Australia. The listener is afforded the privileged perspective from within and outside the Gang Life. The details and the interviews included in each episode, accompanied by an unbiased and informative narrative, present a picture to the listener unrivalled by that of the media.

Fascinating

A great introduction to the science and research behind Dr. Michael Moseley's work. A brief explanation is given of what is involved in his weight loss and improved nutrition and health plans. I have read the 5:2 but have now downloaded the Fast 800 and Clever Guts. Michael Moseley is fascinating to listen to and I am looking forward to listening to the Fast 800 next.

A hilarious second series.

As with the first series, the performances are wonderfully entertaining and the subject matter is incredibly amusing. I am really hoping that a third series will be released as the storyline just get better with every episode.

An thoroughly addictive series full of fantastic performances and hysterical humour. A very amusing insight into the everyday life of a plus size dominatrix. Absolute genius.
