    Stephanie Cole ("Doc Martin"), Benedict Cumberbatch and Roger Allam ("The Thick Of It") star in the complete second series of the hit sitcom about the pilots of a tiny charter airline for whom no job is too small, but many, many jobs are too difficult.

    What did you love best about Cabin Pressure?

    Oh, it's hard to pick just one thing - the clever, hysterically funny writing, the performances or the way it changes the way you look at everyday life?


    What did you like best about this story?

    There were many stories. And they were all funny and witty and clever. I love that!


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Each narrator provided depth and nuances that broadened the characters and made them into people rather than just caricatures. The comic delivery had me staggering around the park laughing seemingly to myself on my daily walk as I listened.


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

    "Arthur says 'it's brilliant'"


    Any additional comments?

    I am so jealous of the UK for getting new episodes first.

  • This Book Is Full of Spiders: Seriously, Dude, Don't Touch It

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs and 54 mins)

    Story

    Warning: You may have a huge, invisible spider living in your skull. This is not a metaphor. You will dismiss this as ridiculous fearmongering. Dismissing things as ridiculous fearmongering is, in fact, the first symptom of parasitic spider infection - the creature secretes a chemical into the brain to stimulate skepticism, in order to prevent you from seeking a cure. That’s just as well, since the “cure” involves learning what a chain saw tastes like. You can’t feel the spider, because it controls your nerve endings.

    Story
    Would you listen to This Book Is Full of Spiders again? Why?

    Yes - the dark hilarity mixes well with the gore and thought-provoking passages. This is a smart, terrifying and yes, fun adventure. Narrator does a superlative job with the material.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Although I was a fan of the written book, the narrator really brought the nuances of the story to life and made the dialogue flow.


    What about Nick Podehl’s performance did you like?

    Everything, I purchased the previous audiobook, John Dies at the End and couldn't finish it because I didn't think the narrator did the words justice. In this case, Nick Podehl elevated an already worthy story.


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

    Chinese food apocalypse for the soul - extra soy sauce! (Hold the MSG).


    Any additional comments?

    Not for the squeamish or faint-of-heart.
