Started to listen to this one morning and could not stop. A beautiful story, beautifully narrated. Who could imagine one could fall in love with a book called The Graveyard Book. But you can. You really can.

Fantastic must listen

Well researched and a great summary of why we are where we are. Thank you Judith Brett for a wonderful piece of work. I hope that by being more informed I can also play a better, more informed role within our democracy.

Lovely story, superb narration

I loved the narrator - she has a beautiful voice and the book is read lyrically. The little insights into Persian culture are lovely. The story is very sweet and beautifully written. My only. Issue was that it was a little predictable - the relationship between the characters was entirely predictable- right until the end - but overall recommended - an enjoyable listen

A beautiful must read story. Funny, sad, and beautifully drawn characters it draws you in and then you find you can’t put it down. You’ll fall in love with A Man Called Ove.

This is a must-read book for anyone wanting to live their best life. Goggins philosophy is that you just need to do the hard work and see failure as a learning tool. Sounds obvious but a lot of self help books skirt around the ‘get comfortable being uncomfortable’ message that Goggins talks about here. He lives his philosophy and it has given him a rich life, full of success built on hard work. There is no other way. Thanks David Goggins for being so real, transparent and authentic.

Still a fan

This is an insightful and interesting book. Malcolm Turnbull could have been one of Australia’s greatest PMs if the politics of jealousy and petty personal, destructive ambition within the liberal party - at the expense of the Australian community these politicians were being paid to serve - hadn’t prevented him delivering his big vision. Malcolm is a brilliant strategist and informed thinker - and unlike many of his fellow politicians he was there for the right reasons - he didn’t need the money or fame - he had those in spades - he just wanted Australia to fulfil its potential and for that I think many members of the Australian public will hold him in very high regard. Definitely worth a look.

A heartwarming, open story about an amazing man told with grace and candour. Taron Egerton’s warm and authentic performance along with a simply incredible story takes you on an unforgettable emotional roller coaster. I laughed, cried and loved every minute. Unputdownable!

Fabulous book! Highly recommended.

Thank you Mel Robbins. This is a fabulous listen and most helpful. Even though my background is so different to all the people presented I found something of myself in common with each of them, and got such a lot out of every story. I hope you do more of these Mel - a very powerful template for terrific real life learning experiences for your listeners.

I adore P.G. Wodehouse - he must be one of the worlds cleverest writers with the most amazing command of the English language. His works are witty and winsome - I enjoy every word. And as for Jonathan Cecil’s narration? How does one improve upon perfection? ❤️

A joy to listen

A truly fabulous story with Jonathan Cecil’s absolutely perfect narration. ‘Joy in the Morning’ and ‘The Feudal Spirit’ are my two all time favourite Jeeves and Wooster books (so far). Highly recommended to anyone who loves charming stories, exquisitely written and superbly narrated. Whilst born generations apart, Wodehouse and Cecil are a splendid team who once again provide hours of marvellous, witty and laugh out loud escapism.
