    John Finnemore (Dead Ringers & Mitchell & Webb) has written this brilliant new sitcom starring Stephanie Cole, Roger Allam & Benedict Cumberbatch. Cabin Pressure is set in a small airline business. The flipside of the glamorous world of international airlines.

    Dawn says: "Fly away on MJN air with these lovable characters-"
    "I wanted to be an aeroplane."

    What did you love best about Cabin Pressure?

    So I downloaded Cabin Pressure from Audible because Benedict Cumberbatch plays the pilot, Martin Crieff, and since Ben's voice is like melted chocolate, I thought it might soothe me to sleep. But YSK: It is REALLY hard to sleep when you're laughing so hard you can't breathe. I listened to all three available seasons last week and then just started right over from the beginning! I've also taken to stalking the BBC Radio 4 website at odd hours of the day/night to catch up with series 4 as it airs.

    And as Arthur Shappey would say, "It's brilliant!"


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Cabin Pressure?

    "Oh, dear. Surely we had two wings when we started?"


    Which scene was your favorite?

    (bing bong!)

    MARTIN: Good afternoon. This is your captain speaking. Just to say there is absolutely nothing to worry about.

    (bing bong!)

    MARTIN: Hello. Captain Crieff here again. Still no need to panic. I repeat, there is no need to panic. Or to look out of the windows. Everything's fine.

    (bing bong!)

    MARTIN: Actually, I wasn't being entirely straight with you just now. You see, it's this damnable sleeping sickness of mine. [Yawns.] Normally, I control it with a mysterious stimulant from South America but blast it, my supply's run out. I'm afraid our only hope now is if by some chance someone on board knows how to prepare this stimulant and could—

    CAROLYN: Yes, we get the message. Arthur, take Martin his coffee.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed so hard that I forgot how to breathe. Then I died. I am currently listening to CP from the beyond. "What fresh hell is this?"


    Any additional comments?

    If you don't mind me saying so, that question is entirely against the spirit of surprising rice!

  • A Feast for Crows: A Song of Ice and Fire: Book 4

    • UNABRIDGED (33 hrs and 56 mins)
    • By George R. R. Martin

    Few books have captivated the imagination and won the devotion and praise of readers and critics everywhere as has George R. R. Martin’s monumental epic cycle of high fantasy that began with A Game of Thrones. Now, in A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth book of his landmark series, as a kingdom torn asunder finds itself at last on the brink of peace . . . only to be launched on an even more terrifying course of destruction.

    Pi says: "Jarring change in Dotrice's performance"
    "Great Story"

    What made the experience of listening to A Feast for Crows the most enjoyable?

    I've been trying to read this book for so long that I'm actually embarrassed to admit when I started it. Since starting a new job, I've had almost no time for reading. I love that I can listen to the book while I get read for work in the mornings or when I'm driving.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    In this book? Jaime or Brienne


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Name pronunciation, i.e. Bry-een for Brienne (Bree-uhn)? Really?


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

    Winter is coming.


    Any additional comments?

    I will probably download book five, too.
