An excellent book about autism and neurodiversity, particularly the social and scientific history of autism.

Honest and funny

This is a serious and honest account of Susan Calman's experience of depression which manages to also be funny. It is thought-provoking and helpful and not at all what you'd expect from a book about depression. The audio book is, it appears, slightly different to the book, in as much as phrases such as "as you are listening to this audiobook" I assume in the printed version says "as you are reading this book". Combined with it being read by Susan Calman herself, makes it one of the best audio books I've listened to.

I love Twilight Saga but "Life and Death" is awful

I love all the Twilight Saga books, I've listened to them so many times that I know most of them off by heart, when listening to it I know the words coming next, but I still love listening to them over and over. I was so excited to see a new Twilight Saga book. I saw the negative reviews saying that "Life and Death" is virtually identical but switching the genders but it didn't put me off, I love Twilight Saga so much, and repetition is something I love rather than dislike and thought it'd be an interesting twist on the same thing. However, it is almost exactly word for word the same with only slight variations on the names to switch the gender and the wording occasionally modified very slightly, but only with occasional words. I never thought I could dislike a Twilight Saga book, but I just can't like this one, there's nothing new in it.

Where does Eclipse: Twilight Series, Book 3 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of my favourite audio books, I listen to it over and over again.

Have you listened to any of Ilyana Kadushin’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No but her reading of this is fantastic.

Misleading audio sample

I didn't like the audio sample but it was the only unabridged version and lots of reviews said they didn't like the audio sample but enjoyed the book. I have to say I agree. It's a wonderful book and wonderfully read. I'm going to miss it when I finish it!
