Part autobiography, part self-help, part confession, part celebration of being a common-or-garden woman, part collection of synonyms for nunny, Sarah Millican's debut audiobook delves into her super normal life with daft stories, funny tales and proper advice on how to get past life's blips - like being good at school but not good at friends, the excitement of IBS and how to blossom postdivorce.

This is one of the best autobiography I have ever listened to.

As ever Sarah Millican can't help but make you laugh as she takes you through a journey from her school days, her early days of working, the first failed marriage, the beginnings of her stand up carer and all the way up to finding her two great loves (current husband and dog. )

Not only does this book tell you the story of Sarah's life, she also gives tips to try and help make your life a little bit easier.

A perennial best-seller in the wizarding world and one of the most popular books in the Hogwarts School Library, Quidditch Through the Ages contains all you will ever need to know about the history, the rules - and the breaking of the rules - of the noble sport of Quidditch. Packed with fascinating facts, this definitive guide by the esteemed Quidditch writer Kennilworthy Whisp charts the game's history from its early origins in the medieval mists on Queerditch Marsh through to the modern-day sport loved by so many wizard and Muggle families around the world. With comprehensive coverage of famous Quidditch teams, the commonest fouls, the development of racing brooms, and much more, this is a must-have sporting bible for all Harry Potter fans and Quidditch lovers and players, whether the weekend amateur or the seasoned Chudley Cannons season-ticket holder.

A very good adaption of the book with a well read performance by Andrew Lincoln with the highlight of this production being the bonus World Cup content (especially Rita's "commentary" of the final.)

My only criticism of this being that having no way of showing us the fantastic illustrations that where present in the books I feel it looses a little bit of its charm.
