I really liked it. Good varied cast, contrary to what others said I enjoyed the portrayal of Watson. More in the vein of the Robert Downey Jr films than Conan Doyle so maybe the purists won't like it but I thought it was a fun romp.

Good characters, well performed. A bit rude in places but pretty funny ! Must have enjoyed it because I got the sequel as soon as I finished it.

Outstanding war memoir and more !

As a ' Running Commentary' listener I was always going to download this. Would it live up to expectations though? Well yes, but not in a way I would have expected. I thought it would be just a funny look at running but it was actually moving as well. It reminded me of some of my own childhood stuff in the 80s . It also makes you think about your own running motivations...are we running away from something, why do we do it? Thanks Paul for your book and also to you and Rob for the podcast which has given me good company out on the roads and trails!

Enjoyable.

Nice book. You can't help but like Billy and his family and 'Wrecking Ball' is a good insight into what it's like to come from a small Rugby playing country like Tonga to a totally different life in the UK. I hope that the book will be updated in the future - the rest of his career will be an interesting story and would have to include the controversial events at Saracens.

Love it.

I took a punt on this one, wthout knowing much about it. Turns out that I stumbled on a real gem. It's funny, well produced and the cast are excellent. The characters are just great: an ahead of his time inventer,a wizard, a witch, a noble lady helplessly in love with a peasant and much more.

This is one you can listen to again and again.

I love 'Upstart Crow' the comedy about Shakespeare and thought I'd give this a try and find out more about the real man as well as Green, Burbage etc.

Thoroughly enjoyed it. The book is very much about Shakespeare and his times rather than a detailed look at his plays. The end is also intreresting as Bill looks at the conspiracy theories surrounding the great man.

Good overview.

Easy to follow guide to the New Testament with N.T and Michael taking turns in leading you through the various topics. Good stuff.

* I don't know why Judea kept getting referred to as Palestine though - Judea was never called Palestine in the Bible.

Fast paced

Faultless book. Superb first hand account with really good narration. David Render is a real hero, Normandy to Germany with the odds of survival stacked against him as an inexperienced young tank commander.

Wonderful book.

I've liked Tyson since his pro-debut and was delighted to see his book turn up on Audible. Okay, I had hoped he would read it but he does do the introduction. As it turned out Jake Wood did a a great job with the narration and really got the spirit of Tyson if not the voice. The book covers his upbringing and his career with extra attention paid to his 2 big World Title fights as well as the struggle with depression. It's not just a book for boxing or sports fans, anyone could listen to this and enjoy it. It's really well balanced and positive and I loved listening to it in one go at work. Well done Tyson and I hope you, Paris and the children have a blessed future.
