I just seemed to listen to a load of rubbish lately.
I don’t like sci-fi or autobiographical stuff. I like good fiction.

Seconding St Mary's, they are just so much fun, and interesting and Max is just fantastic.

I spend far too much on Audible @Sewsosew.

Moonraker read by Bill Nighy is worth a listen too. The film is a travesty.

I’ve let my credits run up as the last few things have been so disappointing. I find the reccs in the app are just rubbish.

I only had one I really didn't like, I returned it after a couple of chapters and Audible gave me a credit.

BBC radio versions of the Smiley books with Simon Russell Beale as Smiley. These are fantastic.

Currently listening to the Thursday murder club. Not usually my thing but seems your good.

Have you listened to the West Cork podcast? It's gripping.

Sewsosew Sat 19-Dec-20 20:05:31

Yes I’ve listened to West Cork! Very much enjoyed that!

The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt is incredible. The story and narration are amazing. It was the first audible I listened to and I’ve been hooked to audible ever since!

Pride and Prejudice narrated by Rosamund Pike
Jane Eyre narrated by Thandie Newton

They are both so well done.

I loved The Little Friend (my favourite Donna Tartt), also currently listening to Americanah which is a great story brilliantly narrated.

Graham Norton's books are very good fiction novels. I've listened to two and enjoyed them a lot. Have bought the third, but not started yet!

Can you name some books you like OP? Or things you already listened to that you liked ?

Not sure if everyone already knows this but you can pause your membership for a month or more in the account settings if there isn't anything you fancy that month. Has to be better than paying the full whack and having credits to use up for the sake of it.
