Passionate about reading, listening and widening my comprehension of the world. My favourite sentence: we have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.

    Washington, London and Peking - terror sweeps the globe. The Vice-Premier of the People's Republic has been brutally murdered by a legendary assassin and everyone is asking the same fearful questions: Why has Bourne come back? Who is paying him? Who is next on his death list? But US officials know the shocking truth: there is no Jason Bourne. There never was. But someone has resurrected the name, and if he is not stopped, the world will pay a devastating price. Jason Bourne must live again.

    What did you love best about The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes?

    This book, after more than a century, still reveals how paramount is to observe and deduce facts from apparently small and insignificant things.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes?

    In each adventure I really enjoyed the way S.H. deduces things and the simple and astonishing logic behind his deductions


    What about Patrick Tull’s performance did you like?

    Patrick has perfectly undestood how to interpret the characters; he is very clear and the pronouciation absolutely well spoken


    If you could take any character from The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Sherlock Holmes is absolutely the main character but the role of Watson is so important that is difficult to decide who was the best

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It is a truth universally acknowledged that anyone looking for a great listen won’t be able to resist Jane Austen’s delightful classic of love and manners in Regency England. Jane Austen's story of Mrs. Bennet's finding husbands for her daughters is told with wit and charm. A must for lovers of good literature. Commuters Library presents Pride and Prejudice read by Kate Reading.

    the story itself

    disappointment


    Any additional comments?
