Not only does this book detail facts and figures it inserts human stories. It brings the past to life and I learnt so many new things.

I knew absolutely nothing about Warhammer 40k and got this book on a whim. Being the first book in the series it was a good introduction. The characters held up, the universe hung together well. Worth a delve into.

This book has changed my understanding of many ideas and concepts. Rutger Bregman's backs up his ideas with hard evidence using historical examples. Well worth a read.

I bought his Utopia For Realists book based on listening to this interview. This man has some excellent ideas.

Great Star Wars world-building.

This was a predictable story but the way it got there was good. World-building around Twi'leks and always great to hear the exploits of Darth Vader. The sound effects added to the immersion. The narrator was excellent and put on voices for the characters.

Wow! I am so proud of Audible releasing this series. it is a much needed exploration into the state of immigration in the U.S.. The characterisation is on point. The voice actors were so good that I was transferred into the world of their joys and struggles. Highly recommended!

This contains 3 accounts of David Attenborough's Zoo Quest filming expeditions, all narrated by him. Assorted interviews are included as well. His accounts of travelling to far flung destinations in the 1950's are fascinating and inspire awe. His narration is soothing.

This is a well put together dramatisation of a children's classic. I remember seeing the animated version of the Wind in the Willows as a child. Hearing this as an adult I cannot help but notice the outdated ideas in the story, especially about class in British society and also about women.

This series was so enlightening. It is always good to know nature is beneficial to humans but this also has the science behind it as well.
