    Winnie-the-Pooh is a Bear of Very Little Brain, but he has many good friends living in the Forest. There's Owl, Kanga, Roo, Eeyore, and Rabbit - and of course his two special friends, Piglet and Christopher Robin, who help him to hunt heffalumps and discover the North Pole....

    Story
    Would you listen to Winnie-the-Pooh again? Why?

    Definitely, Bernard Cribbins really brings Milne's characters alive, in a way that is different to the animated tv/movies we are used to, but not so different that they are unfamiliar. So far I have listened to it twice.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Winnie-the-Pooh?

    I think my favorite part of he book was when Piglet was trying to convince Kanga that he was not Roo.


    Have you listened to any of Barnard Cribbins’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I grew up with Bernard Cribbins and The Wombles. There is definitely a familiarity with the way he reads that comforts people of all ages.

    (142)

    An Inscrutable Masquerade', 'The Conundrum of Coach 13', 'The Trinity Vicarage Larceny' and 'The 10.59 Assassin'. Inspired by Arthur Conan Doyle’s original Sherlock Holmes stories, John Taylor has written four more mysteries featuring the world’s greatest detective. Read by acclaimed actor Benedict Cumberbatch, these new adventures share all the suspense of the original tales.

    Janette says: "Cumberbatch is a great Sherlock Holmes"

    Story
    Where does Sherlock Holmes: The Rediscovered Railway Mysteries and Other Stories rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Definitely my favorite audio book so far, Benedict Cumberbatch is perfect for it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sherlock Holmes: The Rediscovered Railway Mysteries and Other Stories?

    The twists in the first story will leave you guessing until the moment of reveal.


    Have you listened to any of Benedict Cumberbatch’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    So far I have purchased and listened to four (including this) audio books read by Benedict Cumberbatch. He is definitely one of the best narrators out there. He not only changes the tone and style of his voice to suit characters but also to suit the style of book. I appreciate the fact he didn't use the voice he uses in the BBC version of Sherlock, instead opting for a more classic Sherlock.


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

    Sherlock Holmes is at it again!


    Any additional comments?

    Definitely worth the risk for those loyal to Conan Doyle.
