Paulo Coelho's enchanting novel has inspired a devoted following around the world. This story, dazzling in its simplicity and wisdom, is about an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago who travels from his homeland in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of treasure buried in the Pyramids. Along the way he meets a Gypsy woman, a man who calls himself king, and an Alchemist, all of whom point Santiago in the direction of his quest.

What a book, it has made me really think about my life and actions. Well really, my inability to convert my thoughts into action and this book has helped me make some moves and get out of my own head. So many helpful tips and strategies to beat my own mind. The 5 Second Rule is not just airy fairy inspirational stuff, her techniques are grounded in real cognitive science and reasearch. Mel Robbins now that I have finished the book, I'm watching your sessions, I want to hear everything you have to say. Thank you for your contribution to the world!

Winner of the British Book Awards, Newcomer of the Year, 2005.

English magicians were once the wonder of the known world, with fairy servants at their beck and call; they could command winds, mountains, and woods. But by the early 1800s they have long since lost the ability to perform magic. They can only write long, dull papers about it, while fairy servants are nothing but a fading memory.

A thrilling collection of 20 stories - some brand new, some published in magazines, all entirely brilliant and collected for the first time - with a wonderful bonus: in addition to his introduction to the whole collection, King gives readers a fascinating introduction to each story with autobiographical comments on their origins and motivations.

Mix of narrators was good. The Intros from King was a nice touch. King's work is odd, I don't quite enjoy the stories because of the dark and sometimes twisted themes but it intrigues. it compells me to keep listening. How does he do that???

You Are a Badass is the self-help audiobook for people who desperately want to improve their lives but don't want to get busted doing it. In this refreshingly entertaining how-to guide, best-selling author and world-travelling success coach Jen Sincero serves up 27 bite-size chapters full of hilariously inspiring stories, sage advice, easy exercises, and the occasional swear word, helping you to identify and change the self-sabotaging beliefs and behaviours that stop you from getting what you want.

John Cleese describes his nerve-racking first public appearance, at St Peter's Preparatory School at the age of eight and five-sixths; his endlessly peripatetic homelife, with parents who seemed incapable of staying in any house for longer than six months; his first experiences in the world of work, as a teacher who knew nothing about the subjects he was expected to teach; his hamster-owning days at Cambridge; and his first encounter with the man who would be his writing partner for over two decades, Graham Chapman.

A haunting, magical fairy tale collection, in which Oscar Wilde beautifully evokes (amongst others) 'The Happy Prince', who was not so happy after all; 'The Selfish Giant', who learned to love little children; and 'The Star Child', who did not love his parents as much as he should.

Magical listening for young and old, narrated by John Moffatt.

Well hello to you dear audiobook browser. Now I have your attention it would be rude if I didn't tell you a little about my literary feast. So, here is the thing: is it just me or does anyone else find that adulthood offers no refuge from the unexpected horrors, peculiar lack of physical coordination and sometimes unexplained nudity, that accompanied childhood and adolescence? I am proud to say I have a wealth of awkward experiences - from school days to life as an office temp - and here I offer my 18-year-old self (and I hope you, too, dear listener) some much needed caution and guidance on how to navigate life's rocky path.

Hi,

I quite enjoyed this book. It had quite a few laugh out loud moments. It had many a 'good word' and 'pun' moments, which I enjoyed. You really have to throw yourself in the silly basket to enjoy this book which is never a bad thing. Its light, humorous and relatable.

if you want to be frivilous go with this book. or better yet watch her series first or again after. Top notch!!

such fun, such fun! no really :)

I loved it from beginning to end. Full of positivity and light. It talks of creativity as a life of its own and I really connected to it. I adored Gilbert's ideas and life mantra's. I would recomend it 100%. Next stop I'm going to buy Eat Pray Love as an audio book. I'm excited.
