Written with input from director Rian Johnson, this official adaptation of Star Wars: The Last Jedi expands on the film to include scenes from alternate versions of the script and other additional content. From the ashes of the Empire has arisen another threat to the galaxy’s freedom: the ruthless First Order. Fortunately, new heroes have emerged to take up arms - and perhaps lay down their lives - for the cause.

The narrator did his best with what he had. The book was very simple. Much like a first draft and wasn’t refined. I become bored listening to it. I don’t recommend. Stick with the classic Star Wars books.

Ricky with comedian chums and eminent guests discuss the big issues. Entertaining, thought-provoking and often taboo-crunching chat about ethics, science and art. Featuring Huey Morgan, Ben Bailey Smith, Professor Brian Cox, David Baddiel, Robin Ince, Richard Dawkins, Noel Gallagher, and Sean McLoughlin.

If you’re looking for the old Karl and Steve podcasts then this isn’t it. However it’s still filled with interesting info and quips with some well known and some not so well know celebrities.

It begins with just a few people falling ill. Another flu virus that spreads around the globe. And then the reports begin that people are dying.... When most of the world's population is wiped out, a handful of survivors are left to pick up the pieces. Cities become graveyards. Technology becomes largely obsolete. Mankind must start again....

I love radio plays. Has great sound effects and it's like a movie for your mind. This would be good for anyone who likes end of the world or survival books. The writing was poor. I didn't care for the characters and in fact I found them annoying and I tried hard not to turn it off. The story was dragged out and the script kept repeating over and over. I found when characters talked to them self it was unconvincing and forced and fake.

Based upon the graphic novels by Joe Harris - with creative direction from series creator Chris Carter - and adapted specifically for the audio format by aural auteur Dirk Maggs ( The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Alien: Out of the Shadows), Cold Cases marks yet another thrilling addition to the pantheon of X-Files stories. Featuring a mind-blowing and otherworldly soundscape of liquefying aliens, hissing creatures, and humming spacecraft, listeners get to experience the duo's investigations like never before.

It was great to listen to a quality produced audio play with great sfx, music. It was like watching a movie in my mind. I wasn't too impressed with Davids performance. Felt like his heart wasn't in it and was reading from a script. Gillian was great. The lone gunmans performance was good to. The first story was great. Then it started to lose credibility and became almost looney at the end. I
