    A second BBC Radio 4 series of Stephen Fry's witty and incisive programmes looking at the oddities of the English language. Includes four 30-minute Radio 4 programmes presented by Stephen Fry indulging his delight in the English language. So Wrong It's Right - Stephen Fry examines how 'wrong' English can become right English, such as more people use the word 'wireless' in a computer context than in a radio one. With help from a lexicographer, an educationalist a Times Sub Editor and a judge,

    What did you like best about this story?

    It was a fun munch of thoughts and teasings and insights on a soapy subject.


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

    I've always liked being read to by Stephen Fry. He's the person one would want to narrate most tales.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish he would narrate more books on audible.com. It's unsporting that his list of narrations doesn't top 50 tomes yet.

    Story

    She is one of the most recognizable women of our time. America knows Jane Fonda as an actress and an activist, a feminist and a wife, a workout guru and a role model. Now, in this extraordinary memoir, Fonda reveals that she is so much more. From her youth among Hollywood's elite and her early film career to the challenges and triumphs of her life today, Jane Fonda reveals intimate details and universal truths.

    Lisa says: "interesting but ponderous"
    "The voice of a true storyteller."

    Would you consider the audio edition of My Life So Far to be better than the print version?

    I tried to read the print version, but it was too laborious. However, I have always considered Jane Fonda's speaking voice, her enunciation, to be unbelievably beautiful. Thus, when I saw the audio version here, I decided to go with her once again on this journey. Her storyteller's voice captured me right away.


    Any additional comments?

    Were I to meet her, one of the things I'd say is this, "Please, narrate more books. You have such a gift for narration: a storyteller's magic."

    Story

    With wit and warmth, Emma Thompson, writer and star of Nanny McPhee Returns, recounts one family's tumultuous summer in an audiobook that alternates between the story and a behind-the-scenes film diary, bringing a delightful and unique perspective to this funny and magical adventure for all ages.

    Diane says: "As good as Nanny McPhee in person!"
    "A fun and goofy ride."

    Would you listen to Nanny McPhee Returns again? Why?

    Of course — it's just the sort of fun-for-fun nonsense that one shouldn't listen to 5x in a summer but one must.


    What about Emma Thompson’s performance did you like?

    She has a whimsical way of puttering about through eccentric characters caught in all sorts of muddles.

    Story

    Since her first appearance on screen in Mary Poppins, Julie Andrews has played a series of memorable roles that have endeared her to generations. But she has never told the story of her life before fame. Until now.

    Christopher says: "The Road to Fame, Dame Julie style"
    "Enchanting"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Home to be better than the print version?

    Who wouldn't want to be read to by Julie Andrews?!?! Her voice brought such allure and enchantment to the tale.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No — not at all: Why? When I enjoy something, I want it to last. I plan on listening to this more than once.


    Any additional comments?

    How is it possible that she hasn't narrated more books for others, too, apart from her own! She is a born storyteller. She has such storytelling magic: oodles of it. She should do more more narrations: much, much, much more. She's one of the best narrators around.
