Simply love this series by MRC Kasasian. Enjoyed the previous series and am loving this "spin off". Great characters, great humour, good murder mystery with twists and superb writing. The audible books have the perfect narrator in Emma Gregory

I loved the Gower Street murder mystery series & this spin off is just as good. Twists and turns as any good murder mystery must have but with lashings of laugh-out-loud humour, and clever word play. all brought together by a fabulous narrator

Not a blow by blow account of every facet of his very interesting life but a fabulous snapshot of the highlights delivered, like his singing, in the right key at machine gun pace. Highly entertaining with acerbic wit. I enjoyed it immensely.

I wanted to read this book because of Carlo's recent appointment at my club. But I would recommend this to anyone interested in football, sports management, leadership and people skills. Carlo is a winner but this is more than that, it's his winning personality, understanding and take on life that is impressive. He has led greats to greatness but they acknowledge it is his greatness that got them there and shines through like a beacon to light the way for others. It is so refreshing to read something that doesn't boast or shout but quietly educates with respect and understanding

So Underrated

Barry Cryer is the consummate professional and very funny but seemingly lost to the mainstream audience. I loved this performance

Self-deprecating, unabashed, no punches pulled. What more could you want from an autobiography? One about a story worth telling, full and full-on. Loved it. Listened to it read by the multi-talented Taron Egerton who helped bring it to life with colour

I absolutely loved this book. It fit my own narrative about reality talent shows perfectly. Cynical, scathing, outrageous, funny, Ben Elton is a masterful writer. If someone had to write down what was in my head about this TV format...well, Ben Elton has already done it

another great read from Ben Elton - who knew?.
His research of not only the topic but the surrounding circumstances is exemplary. Learned so much about several topics, as I did in the last book of his I read. Great stand alone book

Crouchy is a national treasure. Very funny.

Great book, great stories. As a blue i didn't need the Gerrard love fest but Crouchy is pretty funny for a red.

A welcome return of Matthew Shardlake, it's been too long.
Sansom has clearly not been idle though. Thoroughly researched. great pace, although over 800 pages meant I couldn't quite finish it on a one week holiday (slow reader - first world problem)
