At seven years old, Millie Bird realises that everything is dying around her. She wasn’t to know that after she had recorded 27 assorted creatures in her Book of Dead Things her dad would be a Dead Thing, too. Agatha Pantha is 82 and has not left her house since her husband died. She sits behind her front window, hidden by the curtains and ivy, and shouts at passers-by, roaring her anger at complete strangers. Until the day Agatha spies a young girl across the street.

Brilliant story about 3 lost souls and a mannequin learning that trust and togetherness mean everything. It's worth persevering with the narrator's monotone to hear a really lovely tale.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is a wonderful escape from humdrum traffic and random telemarketers. I stuck my headphones on and spent hours in battles, in bedchambers and in draughty castles, listening to plans and plots and enjoying the way the character's stories complemented each other.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Game of Thrones (Part One)?

I love the descriptions of things and when John and The Imp are on top of the world I could feel the cold in my bones and the dread from the unknown.

What about Roy Dotrice’s performance did you like?

It's like listening to my dad read me a bedtime story, including character voices.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I deeply sympathised with John. He lost more than he gained, and when he is alone in Castle Black he understands how much blood ties mean.
