    You are about to travel to Edgecombe St. Mary, a small village in the English countryside filled with rolling hills, thatched cottages, and a cast of characters both hilariously original and as familiar as the members of your own family. Among them is Major Ernest Pettigrew (retired), the unlikely hero of Helen Simonson's wondrous debut. Wry, courtly, opinionated, and completely endearing, Major Pettigrew is one of the most indelible characters in contemporary fiction.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Major Pettigrew's Last Stand to be better than the print version?

    probably, I loved the fact that it was read in the proper upper class accent. It made it more authentic.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That the love story is between two older people, the characters themselves, the way it is old-fashioned as well as modern, the subtlety of the English humor.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The party. I had tears rolling down my face, it was so funny.

    Last summer, The New Yorker published chef Anthony Bourdain's shocking, "Don't Eat Before Reading This." Now, the author uses the same "take-no-prisoners" attitude in his deliciously funny and shockingly delectable audiobook, sure to delight gourmands and philistines alike.

    What made the experience of listening to Kitchen Confidential the most enjoyable?

    Informative, funny, naughty and a well told story


    What didn???t you like about Anthony Bourdain???s performance?

    It was nice to have the author read his own words, but someone should have told him to take a breath every once in a while...

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.
