    This is Gordon Ramsay's autobiography, the first time he has told the full story of how he became the world's most famous and infamous chef. He also discusses his difficult childhood, his brother's heroin addiction, and his failed first career as a footballer.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Humble Pie to be better than the print version?

    Not me. I had a bit of a hard time coping with Ramsay's accent,


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ramsay, of course.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Gordon Ramsay?

    Probably not. He speaks too fast and with an odd accent.


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

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I thought he kept much of his personal life to himself and share with us, readers, mostly his failures and sucesses in his professional carreer. I don't know how much a man that works as mich as he does have of a personal life, but I bet there must be some!I bought the book because I wanted to know more of who he is rather than how he works.

    From the bestselling author of The Double Bind, Skeletons at the Feast, and Secrets of Eden, comes a riveting and dramatic ghost story. In a dusty corner of a basement in a rambling Victorian house in northern New Hampshire, a door has long been sealed shut with 39 six-inch-long carriage bolts. The home's new owners are Chip and Emily Linton and their twin ten-year-old daughters.

    What made the experience of listening to The Night Strangers the most enjoyable?

    The story was good, chilly at some points and narrators performed well


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's not a very common topic although it is a ghost story, the approach a little different.


    Which character – as performed by Alison Fraser and Mark Bramhall – was your favorite?

    Garnet


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A old story told in a new outfit.


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't like the ending so much, a little bit to surreal for me. Was expecting something a little more...possible.
