    When a fatal draught of Monk's Hood turns up in the dinner plate of a guest at the Shrewsbury abbey, fingers point at half a dozen likely suspects, including an abashed and bewildered Cadfael.

    This is a very good story and the narrators Welsh accent is well done, but very understandable.

    A BBC radio full-cast dramatisation of the third book in JRR Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy. Brian Sibley's famous 1981 adaptation, starring Ian Holm and Michael Hordern, has been divided into three corresponding parts, with newly recorded beginning and end narration by Ian Holm.

    "Nicely Dramatised"
    Overall

    I've read the triligy several times and love the unabridged work, however this dramatised version has very good voices and pace. I don't care for the singing, but I tend to fast forward through that and it's just part of the story.

    The radio dramatisation of The Hobbit became a classic when it was first broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 1968 and it continues to delight today. Tolkien's famous saga, the prelude to the Lord of the Rings, has all the ingredients of fantasy and adventure: dwarves, elves, goblins and trolls, a fearsome dragon, a great wizard, a perilous quest, and a dramatic climax.

    Mary says: "Takes a little getting used to"
    "Nicely Dramatised"
    Overall

    I've read this book many time since 1969 when I was about 13 and it remains one of my favorite books. While I prefer the unabridged version, this is nicely done. The character voices and the pace is good. Occasionally there is a little too much going on in the background, but still very enjoyable.

    P.G. Wodehouse gives us a delightful romantic comedy of two struggling artists who fantastically misunderstand each other.

    While not as funny as the Jeeves & Wooster series, this is an fun little tale.

    Can you really make a fortune with a chicken farm? Bertie's pal sure thinks so. And though he's not generously endowed with the gray matter, Jeeves certainly is. And when the need arises for some instant capital, Jeeves know just how to drum it up, simply by shaking the right person's hand.

    Paula says: "Typical Jeeves & Wooster"

    If you enjoy the Jeeves and Wooster series of stories, you won't be disappointed with this short, but funny, little story. Well worth it.
