    John Finnemore (Dead Ringers & Mitchell & Webb) has written this brilliant new sitcom starring Stephanie Cole, Roger Allam & Benedict Cumberbatch. Cabin Pressure is set in a small airline business. The flipside of the glamorous world of international airlines.

    Which character – as performed by the narrator – was your favorite?

    Martin and Douglas are a perfect couple. I can't stop laughing at Douglas's antics and poor Martin's desperate attempts to make everything better.

    Two-thousand-year-old Atticus may have outwitted and outfought everyone from Odin to Bacchus, but in this eBook original, he’s about to discover what comes around when you go around messing with gods. Six years into the training of his beautiful apprentice, Granuaile, a large crow swoops down and transforms into none other than the Morrigan, a goddess who insists that Atticus come with her at once. He must leave his apprentice behind, along with his Irish wolfhound, Oberon - and he must also leave his sword.

    What did you love best about Agent to the Stars?

    This was funny, enjoyable, and really uplifting by the end. The first half was funny and fluffy, but then you realize that all of the fluff had an underside and the novel really shined.


    What does Wil Wheaton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Wheaton put so much energy into this book that I felt like I was listening to a movie.

  • Pride and Prejudice

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 7 mins)

    Story
    (508)

    Pride and Prejudice has delighted generations of readers with its unforgettable cast of characters, carefully choreographed plot, and a hugely entertaining view of the world and its absurdities. With the arrival of eligible young men in their neighbourhood, the lives of Mr and Mrs Bennet and their five daughters are turned inside out and upside down.

    Louise says: "excellent reading"
    "Simply outstanding"
    Overall

    Lindsay Duncan captures the wit and tone of Austen perfectly. Too much focus lately has been about Jane Austen's novels being romances. However, this reading really brings out the true genius of Austen.

    Outstanding. 5 stars just isn't enough.
