    Story
    (13)

    When the police tell a wealthy industrialist that her missing son has faked his own kidnapping, she hires Elvis Cole and Joe Pike - and Cole soon determines that it was no fake. The boy and his secret girlfriend have been taken, and are now lost in the gray and changing world of the professional border kidnappers who prey not only on innocent victims, but on each other - buying, selling, and stealing victims like commodities.

    Story
    Where does Taken rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Somewhere in the mid-range of over 60 books


    What did you like best about this story?

    Characterization, especially Elvis, Joe and Krista


    What three words best describe William Roberts’s voice?

    Overexcited, American, irritating


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

    A race against coyotes. Only Cole and Pike could pull it off.


    Any additional comments?

    This book seriously moves around in time - would be great to listen to in one hit but can be hard to follow if you dip in 15 mins at a time.

    Well hello to you dear audiobook browser. Now I have your attention it would be rude if I didn't tell you a little about my literary feast. So, here is the thing: is it just me or does anyone else find that adulthood offers no refuge from the unexpected horrors, peculiar lack of physical coordination and sometimes unexplained nudity, that accompanied childhood and adolescence? I am proud to say I have a wealth of awkward experiences - from school days to life as an office temp - and here I offer my 18-year-old self (and I hope you, too, dear listener) some much needed caution and guidance on how to navigate life's rocky path.

    If you could sum up Is It Just Me? in three words, what would they be?

    Hart's heartfelt humour


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Is It Just Me??

    So many - the Dirty Dancing anecdote struck home


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

    No


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

    Not especially - I wanted it to last!


    Any additional comments?

    This book rings especially true for me as Ms Hart and I are of similar age. Very funny and eminently relateable-to!
