It seems to send mid sentence which is odd . However overall I’ve enjoyed the continuing story and wait for the next segment. I found the timelines slightly more confusing in this book and missed the guppy a bit.

An engaging story

I found the voice a little irritating at times, however I found the story kept my attention and focused. A story of the new new nerdy kid and the jock.

A fun follow on to Geography Club

Would you listen to The Christmas Throwaway again? Why?

I will listen to it again at christmas I imagine.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Th

Any additional comments?

This book was a simple but engaging story about a young guy and a cop, I could imagine the scenes and really enjoyed listening to the story. I only hope there is a follow up at some point. The christmas spirit that is captured in a good film was captured for me in this book.

You think its about to end & then gets going again

What did you like most about Broken?

The story was interesting and built on the earlier books, the story kept me engaged, and although I though it was staring to wrap up there were new aspects starting to the story. I guessed some parts early on but i still enjoyed listening to the story.

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

The only problem I found is that I hear Page's and other charactors voices now from having listened to the previous books.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed the story and it is well read. I look forward to another in the series!

If you could sum up Good to Know in three words, what would they be?

Cowboy teacher orphan

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

More of the story and less detailed sex

Which character – as performed by Sean Crisden – was your favourite?

I could relate to the teacher (being one) the other languages sounded good and believable to me (not that I speak any), the emotions tended to be realistic too.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened to the book in sittings, I tended to listen on the drive to work /home

Any additional comments?

The opening starts quiet different to the rest of the book, give yourself some time to get into the story / wait till in the USA .

Love the series and the book adds another depth

What did you like most about The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner?

It gives great insight into what is happening away from Bella and the others that is only briefly noted in papers and news in the book, I believe this book was written to help the films, a great short story that only adds to the series as s while.

Any additional comments?

If you know the other books you already know the outcome, but that didn't impact the read, I have read all the books and listened to the audio books, the reader was good but I was wishing for the same narrator as the other audio books in the series.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

It is a fun and magical adventure that I enjoyed listening to.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Bedknob and Broomstick?

When they go into the past and meet a necromancer.

Any additional comments?

It is very different to the film;only the core ideas are the same, the film has a slightly better storyline, but having said that I did enjoy this story as it seemed new (although it came before the film). There are a few odd comments are not very PC now and I did notice them, but was common language for the time it was written.

So much better than the film!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Long Earth?

Step day... This is when the world finds they can 'step' into parallel earths however all other other earths are empty of humans.

Any additional comments?

The book was really slow to start and I thought about stopping listening, however it did get better as it progressed, yet in some respects it didn't seem to go anywhere and stops suddenly at the end. I have moved on to the next book in the series and did enjoyed listening to it.
