  • Candide

    Story

    Candide and his tutor Pangloss travel the globe trying to follow the philosophy "All is for the best in this, the best of all possible worlds". However, they are stung and let down at every turn, being robbed, tortured, and ridiculed, amongst other trials. On hearing about their often disasterous travels, a listener feels unfortunately less than empathetic, and can't help themselves laughing out loud at this very funny account of the trail our optimistic travellers take.

    William Brown, the loveable rogue created by Richmal Crompton in the 1930s, is as well-received and enjoyed today as he was almost 80 years ago. Martin Jarvis has long been the voice of William, and brings a youthful sense of joy and a childlike excitement to the reading.

    This was the first William book I read 50 years ago. It remains my favourite. Martin Jarvis is William. Brilliant performance. An easy 5 stars in all categories.

    Story
    (700)

    This stand-alone work is widely regarded as Asimov's best science fiction novel. Andrew Harlan is an Eternal, a member of the elite of the future. One of the few who live in Eternity, a location outside of place and time, Harlan's job is to create carefully controlled and enacted Reality Changes. These Changes are small, exactingly calculated shifts in the course of history, made for the benefit of humankind. Though each Change has been made for the greater good, there are also always costs....

    Story

    Quite an imaginative storyline - different from the usual cowboys and indians in outer space, though it seems a bit dated now. The narrator, in my opinion, is awful and almost caused me to give up. This, especially as I just had finished the Hobbit with its wonderful narration.
