  • So You've Been Publicly Shamed

From the Sunday Times top ten best-selling author of The Psychopath Test, a captivating and brilliant exploration of one of our world's most underappreciated forces: shame. "It's about the terror, isn't it?" "The terror of what?" I said. "The terror of being found out." For the past three years, Jon Ronson has travelled the world, meeting recipients of high-profile public shamings. The shamed are people like us - people who, say, made jokes on social media that came out badly or made mistakes at work.

Superb, as expected! Always love audiobooks when the author reads them.

Wow! Mark Tufo does it again with this stand alone top notch Talbot adventure. Blew my mind. Certainly in the spirit of Zombie Fallout et al but a new angle. Nothing more to say other than listen to it NOW! You won't be disappointed.

Callis Rose is a girl blessed with a gift from above or cursed with a ruthless power she barely understands; it's really just a matter of degrees. As her family life is turned asunder she is thrown into an indifferent Social Services program where she defends herself the only way she knows how. Callis is moved from home to home until she finally settles at the Lowries. As she starts her first day of high school she meets both her favorite and least favorite person. Both happen to be part of the same household.

Mark Tufo proves he can write superb work outside the world of Mike. Unless you count the special guest, nice surprise! Put off listening to this for ages, what a mistake. Superb!

Greg Wise reads Pierre Boulle's chilling, iconic novel about a nightmare world where apes rule over men. In a spaceship that can travel at the speed of light, Ulysse, a journalist, sets off from Earth for the nearest solar system. He finds there a planet which resembles his own, except that on Soror humans behave like animals and are hunted by a civilised race of primates.

I know we always bang on about books being better than movies but not in this case. Yes it was written years ago but that's no excuse. Give me Charlton Heston every time!

The narrator chooses to use bizarre American accents too. This is bad enough in music but best avoided in audiobooks.

Historical interest only to shut people up claiming that the book is always the best.

It has been three years since the Progerians left their mark of devastation upon Earth. The remaining humans are in a desperate race against time as they do their best to reverse engineer the alien technology they captured, in an effort to bolster their beleaguered defenses against the oncoming onslaught of Progerians hell-bent on revenge.

Mark Tufo is an incredible author. Shaun Runnette is Mike Talbot.

Fun and well paced story telling. I feel so close to the characters and love the alternate reality idea. Been quite a ride to get to book 4. For me the most intriguing part is the switch in allegiances, this is heartbreaking (as far as fiction can be).

Mark Tufo is a master at his art, thank you!
