Would you listen to Citadel again? Why?

I would certainly listen a 2nd time to this book as there is so much detail that you always catch something new the next time around.

Which character – as performed by Finty Williams – was your favourite?

Sandrines character is my favourite, I love how her voice changes depending on which situation she finds herself, either very childish or sometime much older for her years.

What did you like most about The Uncommon Reader?

I loved the normality of the library bus being at Buckingham Palace! What a hoot!

Any additional comments?

I'm encouraged to read more of Mr. Bennetts offerings.

Loved it!

What disappointed you about The Stranger I Married?

Far too pornographic for my liking, not at all obvious when I bought it, next time I'll listen to the sample!

Would you ever listen to anything by Sylvia Day again?

No

Would you be willing to try another one of Imogen Church’s performances?

Yes

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Stranger I Married?

Too much information on the bedroom antics and not enough storyline, we all knew where it was going, way before the final page!

What made the experience of listening to Memoirs of a Geisha the most enjoyable?

I loved the history lesson within the story, my favourite kind of book

What did you like best about this story?

The personal insight into the lives of Geishas was fascinating, a truly remarkable book, worth every penny.

The Elephant to Hollywood, great fun!

I loved this book, so much so that I listened twice! I hadn't read Mr. Caine's first biography, so if there was any duplication in his stories, then I remained ignorant, thankfully. I found myself laughing out loud in the car and the children asking what was so funny! Hard to explain, when the build up was so expertly written. I love the fact that the book is read by the author, much more believable. Wonderful.

The Guest Book, disappointing

The flyleaf on this book sounded much more interesting than the book turned out to be, sorry but I just could not get excited about the storyline. The more I read, the more I hoped that something would develop, but it didn't. It became predictable and therefore difficult to finish. I take my hat off to anyone who can write a novel, but this was very disappointing.

Where Have I Gone? Excellent.

I listened to this book with slight trepidation, not knowing if it would be a full of acting anicdotes or a diet book, it turned out to be a little of both and very entertaining it was too. I loved Pauline Quirke in Birds of a Feather and thought that her book sounded a bit like her character, down to earth and someone you could relate to. An interesting year to listen to and I would recommend anyone wanting to diet, to read or listen to this book as it may just give you the proverbial kick in the behind you are looking for.

This book was a joy to listen to, I bought it for 2 of my 3 children and they thoroughly enjoyed it, listening twice! I would recommend it for boys and girls, aged 8 to 11, not full of fairies though! Definately good fun and excellent writing!
