    "At last!"

    This series of Jilly Cooper books is my guilty pleasure and I'm delighted to find Riders on audible. I'm loving it! I find the narrator very easy to listen to and her pace of reading is spot on. I'm very pleased this book is unabridged, while long at 30 hours it's great value with an audible membership - I just hope others like Polo, Rivals and Apassionata will follow!

    "Wonderfully Addictive"

    I could not stop listening to this - any opportunity I got to stick my headphones in! Having read a couple of the books from this series I am now dying to listen to them all in order. The narrator was great, great pace and characterisations.

    "Wonderful!!!!"

    I read this when I was in high school, about 17 years ago. I loved it then, and it was so wonderful to go back and listen to it again! I love the story, though sometimes a few too many one liners and quips, but otherwise just brilliant! Follows the road to the Olympics for the British show jumping team, with lots of up, downs, backstabbing and randy adventures along the way! Fingers crossed Polo will be made in to an audiobook soon - that was my favourite Jilly Cooper!!!

    "Randy Riders"

    Riders gearing up for the Olympics have numerous romantic, well, more lusty, encounters as everyone finds it hard to stay faithful!

    "Not bad!"

    A good book but too many sexual scenes!...there are loads as the book goes on. Slightly slow to get into it but as it progresses, the story line gets better and better. The narrator is also good but as I said, it would have been better if I didn't have to turn it off/down on almost every chapter whilst the kids were about!

    "Vintage Jilly Cooper!"

    Wow, this audio book was so good! Obviously light hearted - great to listen to on the journeys to & from work.
    It's classic Jilly Cooper - if you've read any of her books & liked them, you'll love this audio book - extremely well read!

    "Took me back to when I first read it!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I loved it! I first read it when I was at college, not long after it was published. It is still as good today.


    What does Gerri Halligan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Gerri has such a distinctive voice for each character, you immediately know who is talking!


    Any additional comments?

    I do a lot of driving and this was a great driving book!
