    Paulo Coelho's enchanting novel has inspired a devoted following around the world. This story, dazzling in its simplicity and wisdom, is about an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago who travels from his homeland in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of treasure buried in the Pyramids. Along the way he meets a Gypsy woman, a man who calls himself king, and an Alchemist, all of whom point Santiago in the direction of his quest.

    What did you love best about The Alchemist?

    Made me want to keep listening. Filled with inspiring thoughts but also an really good story. I love the British narrator too, such a nice change from so many of the harsh American accents of many Audible books.

    When eight-year-old Kirstie brings home a strange egg from the Scottish shore, her family never expects it to hatch. But the next day, Kirstie discovers a baby sea monster swimming in her bathtub! Part horse, part toad, part turtle and part crocodile, he's the oddest-looking creature Kirstie's family has ever seen. Only Kirstie's grandfather knows what the beastie really is: a Water Horse! This lovable creature is the perfect pet. The only trouble is, he can't stop growing.

    Where does The Water Horse rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I don't usually listen to children's stories but this one was golden. There was great characterisation and I just wanted to keep listening to find out what happened next.


    What about Nathaniel Parker’s performance did you like?

    Fantastic, very British.

    When she returns from a self-imposed exile in Italy, journalist Lindsay Gordon finds her world turned upside down. The lover she thought would wait for her has found a new partner; an ex-lover has been murdered; and a former colleague has been jailed for the crime. But the jury's verdict is challenged and soon Lindsay is embroiled in an investigation involving blackmail, stolen government documents and the vested interests of a group of people determined to keep her from finding the truth.

    Where does Final Edition rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have listened to the previous two book in this series, Report for Murder and Common Murder. This is just as good as the other two if not better. I love Vari Sylvester as a narrator.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story is really good. It took me a little while to get into it because there were quite a few different characters to remember but it was a gripping story. I didn't want to stop listening. I can't wait to listen to the next one in the series.


    Any additional comments?

    If you haven't read the first two in the series you should definitely read them first. Val has really good mystery plots with lots of interesting twists and turns. She also writes really good believable lesbian characters.
