This is a beautifully narrated overview of the history and meanings of The Dharma in addition to how we can apply The Buddha's message. Some of the explanations were quite hard to follow but, I am sure, that this will repay repeated listenings.

A moving and informative account.

This is a both moving and informative description and explnation of what the British countryside both used to be and could be, if it were not for the use of chemicals on the land. The literary and historical asides are particularly interesting.

In addition to the well-known classic, Candide, it was a pleasure to become familiar with the lesser known work, Zadig in this beautifully read audiobook.

An excellently performed interpretation of a fearful tale of a seemingly demonic force that consumes a village community. The acting is outstanding.

This is beautifully read but, although the story has some original and interesting touches, it is a little too predictable and formulaic.

There are many readings and dramatisations of the Holmes canon but this will remain the ultimate interpretation. Outstanding!

I like the thematic idea and, while the poems are generally interesting, perhaps it would benefit from a wider range of poets?
