  • Lionel Asbo: State of England

    Lionel Asbo, a terrifying yet weirdly loyal thug (self-named after England's notorious "Anti-Social Behaviour Order"), has always looked out for his ward and nephew, the orphaned Desmond Pepperdine. He provides him with fatherly career advice (always carry a knife, for example) and is determined they should share the joys of pit bulls (fed with lots of Tabasco sauce), Internet porn, and all manner of more serious criminality. Des, on the other hand, desires nothing more than books to read and a girl to love .

    Where does Lionel Asbo rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Pretty high up. Great British reader. I couldn't get into the book, but knew that the audio would be good.


    Which character – as performed by Alex Jennings – was your favorite?

    Lionel - I can still hear his voice in my head many months later.


    If you could rename Lionel Asbo, what would you call it?

    Lottery Lout. Asbo is so perfect = Anti-social behaviour order. This guy just didn't get it.


    Any additional comments?

    I usually listen to audio books when they have different accents.

    A Signature Performance: Elijah Wood becomes the first narrator to bring a youthful voice and energy to the story, perhaps making it the closest interpretation to Twain’s original intent.

    Imagine that your husband wrote you a letter, to be opened after his death. Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret - something with the potential to destroy not just the life you built together, but the lives of others as well. Imagine, then, that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive....

    Margaret says: "Escape to the land down under..."
    "How one man's mistake/secret alters many lives."

    Would you listen to The Husband's Secret again? Why?

    No, because I read the book first & liked it so I wanted to hear it with Australian accents. It's a good story with a good reader.


    What other book might you compare The Husband's Secret to and why?

    Maybe Kate Atkinson's Case histories. Both have wonderful readers and a secret that changes many other lives.


    Which character – as performed by Caroline Lee – was your favorite?

    Cecilia Fitzpatrick -pretty much the main character.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Husband's Secret and why?

    When Cecilia's daughter is injured.


    Any additional comments?

    Just how a lie or secret can be so damaging later.

    Though they have the vote and the Pill and haven't been burned as witches since 1727, life isn't exactly a stroll down the catwalk for modern women. They are beset by uncertainties and questions: Why are they supposed to get Brazilians? Why do bras hurt? Why the incessant talk about babies? And do men secretly hate them? Caitlin Moran interweaves provocative observations on women's lives with laugh-out-loud funny scenes from her own, from adolescence to her development as a writer, wife, and mother.

    L. Calder says: "Hysterical manual for the 21st century woman"

    Would you listen to How to Be a Woman again? Why?

    This is so much funnier than the book because you get to hear the British author read it.


    What about Caitlin Moran’s performance did you like?

    She is very funny!


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

    It would be a strange movie - they would really have to change it hugely.
