Outside the pale of the Abbey of Saint Peters and Saint Paul, in September of the year of our Lord 1140, a priestly emissary for King Stephen has been reported missing. But inside the pale, what troubles Brother Cadfael is a proud, secretive 19-year-old novice. Brother Cadfael has never seen two men more estranged than the Lord of Aspley and Meriet, the son he coldly delivers to the abbey to begin a religious vocation. Meriet, meek by day, is so racked by dreams at night that his howls earn him the nickname the Devil's Novice. Shunned and feared, Meriet is soon linked to the missing priest's dreadful fate. Only Brother Cadfael believes in Meriet's innocence, and only the good sleuth can uncover the truth before a boy's pure passion, not evil intent, leads a novice to the noose.

I am a lover of the cadfael mysteries but the narration by Vanessa Benjamin is appalling which made it impossible to listen to. She does have a beautiful voice but her interpretation of the male voice is ludicrous! To have a female narrate a story of mostly male characters with the lead character requiring a mature male welsh accent is bizarre. Such a disappointment. The variation in volume of her voices was painful and caused me to quit listening after chapter four. Sorry audible u really got this one wrong.

A memoir from national treasure Brian Blessed. There is no one quite like Brian Blessed. He's an actor, film star, trained undertaker, unlikely diplomat, secret romantic, martial artist and mountaineer. He's also a brilliant storyteller who will - and you must brace yourself - simply leap out of the story at you. Ready? Then listen to Absolute Pandemonium and you'll be taken on a riotous journey from his childhood, growing up the son of a miner in Goldthorpe, to finding fame in Z-Cars.

Listening to Brian Blessed himself relay the story of his life with his gorgeously rich voice, his booming expression and passionate enthusiasm is pure indulgence. Well written, interesting. a fascinating journey through the life of a coal minors son, a typical boy who loved comic books and movies and who likes to show off and climb mountains.
A fantastic, thoroughly entertaining read.
