Audible

Post by Openside »

Can anyone recommend a good book to listen to for journeys to Cornwall and back. Something entertaining that both CMOS and I can enjoy.

Appreciate you're asking for audible, but I've downloaded and enjoyed some of the dramatisations of books from BBC Sounds - they had a good version of De Maurier's The Birds a while back, think they've got Don't Look Now available at mo. Not read/heard it so no idea if any good.

Word of warning, some are serialised and it's a pain if you've listened to the first lot and the final episode hasn't been released yet and you didn't realise, and some aren't downloadable (you'd need to stream)

The Cartel Trilogy (or anything frankly) by Don Winslow is excellent.

Warrior series by Bernard Cornwall will eat up the miles nicely too.

I know you said fiction, but the Bill Bryson books are great, and Peter Crouch’s How to be a footballer is a corker.

I second the BBC Radio dramatisation recommendation ... and if you can't or don't want to stream, people have been uploading them to archive.org

https://archive.org/search.php?query=bb ... 22audio%22

There's a great Bond series with Toby Stephens as JB. Lots for all types, from LotR, to war stories, to book adaptations, to endless murder mysteries.

If you sort by date, someone's just uploaded a bunch of Ray Bradbury and Stephen King, Anthony Bourdain, and Terry Pratchett if you go back to April.

I really thought this was about one of the Movez being called by Jonny but Murray choosing to box kick again anyway.

Alan Partridge - Nomad

The Martian and World War Z are both good too, you'll have probably seen the films but the former is pretty different but follows the same story line, the latter is very, very different.

Betjeman country....nice. St Enodoc is a gem. Lanhydrock is pretty decent and very much geared up for buggies. Hopefully some beach toilets are now open for you!!! Everyone is moaning about people crapping in the dunes.

I like that Banjo pier in Looe, and the balls to build it on a no success no fee basis
