Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin!

Always lovely to listen to Stephen Fry reading Harry Potter. I've listened to this multiple times.

I really struggled to get through this one, which is surprising because I love Diana Gabaldon books (that said I wish so hard never to read or hear the words "felt rather than saw" again in my life. Omgoodness that's so over used in these books; it makes me physically cringe when I hear it). I have all of the outlander books in hard copy, kindle, and audio books. Same goes for this book. I have hard copy, Kindle, and audio book....but this is just about the worst thing I've ever put myself though.

Why on earth are there two readers? They change seemingly randomly. The accents they try to put on are absolutely God-awful. Depending on the reader the accents are radically different for the same characters which it makes it really difficult to follow.

Added to that they are so busy putting on an "ever so posh" accent for the in between bits that it's hard to understand simple things...I mean if you can't say off, coffee, lawn, or what (there are many other examples but off the top of my head hose words were the worst) in an understandable way should you even be reading an audio book?

Twice Claire has used an ancient stone circle to travel back to the 18th century. The first time she found love with a Scottish warrior but had to return to the 1940s to save their unborn child. The second time, 20 years later, she reunited with her lost love but had to leave behind the daughter that he would never see. Now Brianna, from her 1960s vantage point, has found a disturbing obituary and will risk everything in an attempt to change history.

I loved this one even if it made me cringe in places...one phrase that is used far too often is "I felt rather than saw" but that's in all of the outlander books, not just this one.

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive - and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plainold "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.

Some books are difficult to follow with audio books, but despite the spelling out of some words it's pretty easy to listen to. Definitely keeps your interest.

One of Jane Austen’s most beloved works, Pride and Prejudice, is vividly brought to life by Academy Award nominee Rosamund Pike ( Gone Girl). In her bright and energetic performance of this British classic, she expertly captures Austen’s signature wit and tone. Her attention to detail, her literary background, and her performance in the 2005 feature film version of the novel provide the perfect foundation from which to convey the story of Elizabeth Bennett, her four sisters, and the inimitable Mr. Darcy.

Beautifully read. Lovely story...I've listened to it many times over. One of my favourites. It isn't just a romance...it's funny too.

Suddenly, condemned arch-swindler Moist von Lipwig found himself with a noose around his neck and dropping through a trapdoor into...a government job? By all rights, Moist should be meeting his maker rather than being offered a position as postmaster by Lord Vetinari, supreme ruler of Ankh-Morpork.

Absolutely my favourite audio book by Terry Pratchett. Stephan Briggs reads it beautifully. You'll love it. I've listened to it many times and it still makes me laugh.

Honestly the book reads well. It's interesting and exciting. But the audio book is really hard to listen to. The style of reading doesn't fit in with the book at all. It'd fit better with a recipe book...but not this book. The attempt at changing voices for the different characters is just painful to listen to.
