    Emergency contraception pills like Plan B and RU-486 have helped women block unwanted pregnancies effectively. Today, Susie takes a look at the many morning-after choices - and a newly approved, but not yet available, pill called "Ella" - to see how they all measure up. All brands are effective, but price and timing are key to which option might be best for you.

    I'd heard of the Morning After Pill but didn't know much about it so it's really interesting to hear a bit of detail about the different types available. I wish they would teach this stuff in sex ed at school.

    In this Christmas special 'Molokai' - It's Christmas morning, but when Carolyn schedules an extra stop-off to the Hawaiian island of Molokai, Arthur has just seven minutes to celebrate Christmas. Stephanie Cole, Benedict Cumberbatch & Roger Allam star in the second series of the hit sitcom about the tiny charter airline for whom no job is too small, but many, many jobs are too difficult.

    I was thrilled to find that there was another episode of Cabin Pressure I hadn't listened to yet. It really cracks me up. The voice talent is just top notch.

  • Clare in the Community: The Complete Series 1

    Sally Phillips stars as Clare in the first series of the acclaimed BBC Radio 4 comedy. Like plenty before her, social worker Clare Barker has entered a caring profession so that she can sort out other people's problems rather than deal with her own. A control freak, she is entirely lacking in self-awareness, making her encounters with colleagues, family, and her partner, Brian, wonderfully entertaining and richly comic.

    Jennifer says: "Not bad, just not laugh-out-loud funny"

    A decent enough listen to pass the time, it just wasn't as funny as I hoped.

    The second episode, ‘The Enlightenment’, of the BBC Radio 4 comedy series, ‘All of the Planet’s Wonders’, in which award-winning comedian Josie Long attempts to better herself through learning from reference books, with help from Irish comedian Maeve Higgins.

    I love Josie Long's sense of humour, and I admire setting out to learn things purely for learning's sake. I just wish these little segments were a bit longer.

    The third volume of this magnificent, award-winning Dickensian comic epic first transmitted by the British Broadcasting Club's Radio 4. It's a Victorian epic of shenanigans at awful schools, worse prisons, featuring giant rabbits, and long lost super-hero aunts - in the style of Charles Dickens after far too much gin. Winner of the 'British Comedy Guide Editors' Award', volume three stars Anthony Head, Celia Imrie, Geoffrey Whitehead, Richard Johnson, Tom Allen, James Bachman and David Mitchell.

    Joseph says: "Immense, clever, fast sharp fun. Get it"
    "Fantastic series, I wish there was more"
    Overall

    I just love the surreal humour, reminiscent of the Goon Show, and the whole cast does a great job!

    Imagine a Britain stripped of democracy, a world of the not-too-distant future in which freedom has been surrendered willingly to a totalitarian regime which rose to power by exploiting the people's worst fears and most damning weaknesses.

    John says: "Visceral Vindictive Vicarious Vicissitudes?"
    "I got my five dollars worth."
    Overall

    I got this thinking it was based on the original comic by Alan Moore, but actually it's based on the graphic novel based on the movie, and bears little resemblence to the comic. My fault for not reading the description clearly enough! Still, I got it on special for $5 so I really can't complain. The narrator does a good job, and the story's okay.

    The Greatest Mysteries of All Time, Volume 5 is an exciting addition to this series, featuring the finest short-story mystery fiction by the most acclaimed writers, past and present. This unique collection of master writers, including such notables as Isaac Asimov, Ogden Nash, and Mickey Spillane, edited by multi-award-winning mystery connoisseur Otto Penzler, is a delightful mixture of mystery and suspense.

    Jennifer says: "A mixed collection"

    I loved the Mickey Spillane story, and really didn't know where it was going until towards the end. The Asimov one is also fun. One of the others (the one about the snails) isn't even a mystery story and I am a bit puzzled by its inclusion.

    The Winter Queen of Faerie has manipulated Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden into accepting a case to solve a murder and stop a war between the courts of Summer and Winter that could have literally earth shattering consequences. His own soul is up for grabs. Dresden must dig deep to discover that at time a willingness to accept a little help from your friends, be they a cub pack of werewolves, old loves in sheep's clothing, or a battalion of pizza loving dewdrop fairies, is a very good thing.

    Michael says: "Harry & James are one."
    "Brilliant series but where is the next book ?!"
    Overall

    Why, Audible, WHY CAN I NOT HAVE MORE DRESDEN BOOKS ON AUDIO? Please tell me there are more coming! I find it difficult to get time to read physical books but I can get through a lot of audio books while I'm working and I would love to listen to the entire series if it was available.

    This is a fantastic series, and each book so far has been better than the last. I love all the detail about the Faerie courts and it's interesting to see a bit more of the White Council in this book.

    Adam One, the kindly leader of the God's Gardeners - a religion devoted to the melding of science and religion, the preservation of all species and the tending of the Earth - has long predicted the Waterless Flood. Now it has occurred, obliterating most human life. Two women have avoided it: the young trapeze-dancer, Ren, locked into the high-end sex club; and former SecretBurgers meat-slinger turned Gardener, Toby, barricaded into a luxurious spa. Have others survived?

    "Strange and ponderous"
    Overall

    It's been a couple of years since I read Oryx and Crake and I think after listening to this one I need to go back and reread and see how they fit together. It's a strange book and it makes you think. The narrator does a fantastic job, and the inclusion of music (songs sung by the God's Gardeners cult) in the audio version was a nice touch.

    Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer. In over 10 years on the force, she's seen it all - and knows that her survival depends on her instincts. And she's going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire - and suspect in Eve's murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it's up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about - except the addictive hunger of needing his touch.

    Felicity Fairchild says: "Don't Judge the Series by the First Book!"
    "Trashy fun with a buttkicking heroine"
    Overall

    I picked this one up because it was on special for $5 (I probably wouldn't have bothered otherwise) and I was glad I did. The story's pulp fiction, but it's good pulp fiction, and being set in the future adds an interesting twist (and I do have to wonder at the powers of observation of other reviewers who didn't realise that a few minutes in what with the robot dogs and autochefs and whatnot). I think I'd like to live in the liberal Utopia Dallas inhabits.

    The story's an interesting balance of romance and crime drama, and it's nice to meet a romance heroine who doesn't need rescuing. I'll probably pick up book 2.



    I'll probably check out book 2.
