GOOD PIECE of OLD FRENCH LITERATURE
When you look beyond & delve deeper, there is aplenty to enjoy & exercise the grey cells. Well produced and acted. This is one to listen to over the years to come. Full cast full of flavour.
ODD OLD FASHIONED PLAY
This is an odd production of a short play by R Louis Stevenson that would have been a little more entertaining should it have had more suitable actors playing the parts. Unfortunately the production goes from sounding professional to amateur.
11 Hours of Enjoyable Drama
A bundle of fun & intrigue once again as we go through over 11 hours of Trollope intrigue. Everything Victorian & Political is here with much more as you could want & expect from this great Victorian writer.
Poor story, over acting and over all utter nonsense. Very let down.
Davis has made some good films and plays and like all actors, some real stinkers and this radio production is one of them.
Enjoy my Rumpole. Great production but why must the BBC always slutify literature! Rumpole does not sleep with any other woman than his wife. All the books state this. So why indicate & cheap titivate in this set. Good writing doesn't need it. Hope we have more good old Rumpole.
True Sei Shonagon‘s Diary from 10th Century Japan
A finely produced well acted drama from the diary of Sei Shonagon a Lady in Waiting at Court in 10th Century Japan. Over eleven hours of entertainment. Well out of my usual comfort zone but still interesting, Everything is here; corruption, love, jealousy,murder & social injustice, truth, lies, and mind games. A journey about life, strength of mind, thought and belief set in the claustraphobic world of the Heian culture a thousand years ago in 965. A lot to get ones teeth into, mind working and exercised. Not for everyone and not something for relaxing. Different. I am now reading Sei Shanogans diary “The Pillow Book of Sei Shonagon”. Fascinating being able to read the thoughts of and life experience seen through the eyes of a woman who lived a thousand years ago.

Good Old Fashioned Scottish Comedy
These good old fashioned comedies are great for a relaxing afternoon. Fine actors & production create a comfortable atmosphere of a time gone by. Nostalgia comes to mind. Would be nice to have more Dr Finlay please.
AWFUL BORING UNSUITABLE NARRATOR
Cannot listen to this, the narrator is utterly unsuitable to read this type of genre and makes the story bland boring and yawn material. Returning for refund. Will never ever waste my money or credits buying books read by Suzannah Hampton for she reads like she is studying her shopping list. She absolutely ruins good books.
BRILLIANT MORE PLEASE ❤️👍
We have thoroughly enjoyed this three full cast Scarlet City. BRAVO ! This is what full cast audiobooks are about and we would like Lots More Please Audible. Perfect 👍
ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC COMPELLING DRAMA
We thoroughly enjoyed part one of this trilogy & have not been let down by part two. We are now on three, but to stay with this one, it is as mesmerising as the first continuing the story of wool merchant Jonas as he struggles with his journey through life as a wool merchant in the 1300’s. A good storyline brought to life by the excellent cast (though we are very disappointed with the disastrous amateur loud acting of Finty Williams who spoils this programme each & every time she opens her mouth, she sounds like an over bearing fishwife instead of a lady welcomed at court. Her voice is crushingly embarrassing & unbearable throughout this beautiful three part audio. We love this drama so much, we have tried to stretch it out to last as long as we can. Nearly 30 hours of good quality drama for three credits is fantastic value. If Audible keep coming out with quality like this, you are on to a winner. More please.
