Kevin Bridges is in a league of his own as he blows the roof off the SSE Hydro in front of 12,000 fans with his brand-new show, A Whole Different Story. Recorded as part of his UK and Ireland tour and 16-night residency at Glasgow’s newest venue. Kevin is in explosive form as he mixes economic theory, art history and diet tips with the rigors of growing up and adapting to his new found place in the world. It is a comic masterpiece.

More brilliant stand-up from Kevin Bridges. A lot of it was a bit too close to the truth. Just as good as his others.

Harry Flashman: the unrepentant bully of Tom Brown's schooldays, now with a Victoria Cross, has three main talents - horsemanship, facility with foreign languages and fornication. A reluctant military hero, Flashman plays a key part in most of the defining military campaigns of the 19th century, despite trying his utmost to escape them all.

A confrontation of nuclear submarines just 200 miles off the American coast is the scenario of this riveting novel by a former U.S. Navy submarine officer. At the center of the deadly conflict are two men on a mission: one wants to find his father's killer, while the other wants to destroy Glasnost and provoke a war. The ensuing underwater chases and battles build to a stunning showdown.

Shattered by the surprise attack at Pearl Harbor, the U.S. is rebuilding its fleet while the badly damaged Submarine Division Seven holds the line against the Japanese Navy. The loss of even one more submarine could be devastating - and every enemy ship that slips through means more lives lost. But Lieutenant Commander Jack Tremain is determined to whip into shape a boat that's returned from a hellish patrol and make the Japanese pay - even if this is his last mission ever.

Where does Pride Runs Deep rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book is in my top ten books that I've listened to through audible.

Who was your favorite character and why?

It has many good characters but centres around the main two, the captain and the ensign.

What does Tim Campbell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Although the narrator reminded me of the boss in 'Team America' it was narrated well and was easy to tell the different characters apart.

Any additional comments?

I really do hope Audible continue with this series.
