What did you love best about Trip Through Your Wires?

A great story in the literary fiction genre. Well written however I struggled with the author reading the story herself unfortunately.....lovely voice that suits the novel but just not as professional as I'm used to.

What made the experience of listening to The Wrong Unit the most enjoyable?

It's fun, well written sci fi. Great subject idea.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Unfortunately to my English ear I struggled with the narrator pronouncing some words super quickly and I couldn't make out what was being said. This spoilt my listening and I had to stop with what was an enjoyable read....

Any additional comments?

I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

Any additional comments?

I obtained a free audible.com copy in exchange for an honest review.

Approximately 50 minutes long and the title declares it is for beginners. First point accordingly I wish to to make is this is an introduction only, the book doesn't promise anything else so do not expect anything more.

It gives background and a basis for starting techniques only. It is not a meditation product that you work along to. Positions given for sitting during meditation too don't work well on audiobook so you'd have to look up certain information on the net, I'm guessing in the real book there must be illustrations.

Well narrated and overall of interest to someone like me who knew nothing about the subject. A great basic introduction read that is quickly and easily digested.

The first of a trilogy about the artist. I was reticent as I knew nothing about Christie. The presentation though is excellent and engaging, the reader having a truly beautiful voice, in keeping with the title.

Story matter is interesting,a biography as told from the perspective of Christies second wife and one of his models. Worth listening to, particularly if interested in art.

Ok, so it's young adult fiction and predictable and cheesy at times. Thoroughly entertaining though, I loved it! Simply great fun!

I listened to this today during my commute drive int London, this story is perfect length for that at 1.45 hrs long.

A married couple are on a road trip trying to salvage their marriage after one of them has strayed. A strange vehicle and owner on the road leads to a jeepers creepers type of encounter. Delightfully scary and creepy,

A great entertaining short novel that is brought to magnificent life but the simply brilliant narration.

Worth taking time out from a movie to be entertained by this book instead. I will definitely listen to again.
