I was fascinated by the Greek Myths when I was a kid, and to have them brought togher and read by Stephen Fry was a double treat.
I loved the way he so cleverly re -produced the ancient stories with his own inimical sense of humour, and then shared it with us by reading it himself.

Thoroughly enjoyable.

I had not read any of marian Keyes books before, but I am now hooked, and fuliy intend to carry on with the whole series; especially if they are all read by Gerri Halligaan!

Intriguing.

Was not sure what to expect from this book, but found it drew me into the story and I was always reluctant to stop reading for any reason and could not wait to get back again.

Beautifully read by Annie Aldington, who (to my ears) reproduced local accents perfectly.

I hope there is a sequel to listen to because I really want to know what happened to all the characters after!

Brilliant.

I found this version of the tale of King Arthur and his knights absolutely engrossing. It is a more down to earth version than many I have read, and Philip Stevens makes a fantastic job of reading it.

Enthrallment.

From first to last I enjoyed this book. I loved the fact that the author was also the reader, it made the story so convincing, and brought out all the emotions felt by the main character.

It was -for me - compulsive listening. I can't wait for the next book.

Classic Milton.

I have thoroughly enjoyed all the Milton books, but this one grabbed me more than others to such an extent that I stopped doing the odd jobs that usually get dealt with at the same rime, and just sat and listened to the last chapters without moving!

Unusual but addictive.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, in fact could not switch off at times.
The writer has drawn the characters so well that you feel you must have met them and the story line is just that bit different to the majority of books available.
The reader is just right for the story and the setting.

Rattling good story.

Was not too sure about this book to start with and the frequent use of the F word really offended me, (I am old!) but soon found myself so involved with the plot and the characters that I really enjoyed it . Now I can't wait to get to the sequel.


Dennis Holland's style of reading really suited the location and the characters
.

A breath of fresh air.

I liked Kate humble as a presenter of the Nature watch programmes, so I expected to enjoy a book written and read by her.
I was not disappointed!
The whole story of the experiences in finding the ideal base and then establishing a dream project in spite of much difficulty, was so well documented and delightfully read by the author.

Delightful.

I have enjoyed every single book and story by Jodi Taylor, but the Characters of St Mary,s hold a special place in my affection.
Some of the stories in the collection I have heard before as standalone, but they are so entertaining that it was a pleasure to renew acquaintance.
As always the reader, Zara Ramm, was absolutely right for all the characters and added much to my enjoyment of the book.
