Fry and Laurie Read Daudet and Jerome Audiobook

Fry and Laurie Read Daudet and Jerome

Author: Alphonse Daudet Narrator: Hugh Laurie, Stephen Fry Release Date: May 2006

Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie probably became best known for their numerous television appearances, particularly as Jeeves and Wooster and then together in their own comedy programmes Fry and Laurie and in Blackadder. Now Fry and Laurie have gone their separate ways, Stephen directing and starring in various film such as Wilde and Gosford Park and Laurie acting in films such as Stuart Little and more recently winning a Golden Globe best TV actor award for his performance as the irascible American Doctor Gregory House in the TV series of the same name, House. Now CSA Word brings them together again but as readers of a series of short stories, anecdotes, musings, light essays and fables written in the late 19th century by two authors who were never very prolific, but whose works have stood the test of time.

Read by Hugh Laurie, star of the hit TV series House. 'Fifteen hundred of the Emperor's largest horses, each about four inches and an half high, were employed to draw me towards the Metropolis, which, as I said, was half a Mile distant' A savage and hilarious satire, Gulliver's Travels sees Lemuel Gulliver shipwrecked and adrift, subject to bizarre and unnerving encounters with, among others, quarrelling Lilliputians, philosophising horses and the brutish Yahoo tribe, that change his view of humanity - and himself - for ever. Swift's classic of 1726 portrays mankind in a distorted hall of mirrors as a diminished, magnified and finally bestial species, presenting us with a comical yet uncompromising reflection of ourselves.

Author: Roald Dahl Narrator: Chris O'dowd, Chris O’Dowd, Geoffrey Palmer, Hugh Laurie, Stephen Fry Release Date: September 2013

"Roald Dahl sometimes shared a tonal kinship with Ogden Nash, and he could demonstrate a verbal inventiveness nearly Seussian [His] stories work better in audio than in print." -The New York Times FANTASTIC MR. FOX Nobody outfoxes Fantastic Mr. Fox! Someone's been stealing from the three meanest farmers around, and they know the identity of the thief-it's Fantastic Mr. Fox!

They don"t need a pail, either, because they have a pelican with a bucket-sized beak. With a monkey to do the washing and Billy as their manager, this business is destined for success. Now they have their big break-a chance to clean all 677 windows of the Hampshire House, owned by the richest man in all of England! That"s exciting enough, but along the way there are surprises and adventures beyond their wildest window-washing dreams. From the Compact Disc edition.

Great Expectations Audiobook

Great Expectations

Author: Charles Dickens Narrator: Hugh Laurie Release Date: June 2005

Standing as one of the most revered works in all of English literature, Great Expectations traces the development of Philip Pirrip, called Pip, from a boy of shallow aspirations to a man of depth and character. Pip is reared by his sister and her husband Joe Gargery, a blacksmith. In his youth he is influenced by the eccentric Miss Havisham, who was jilted on her wedding night and who has brought up her adopted niece Estella to hate men. As a young man, Pip is informed that an unknown benefactor has provided money for his education and expects to make him his heir. Forsaking his humbler friends-particularly the faithful Joe-he sets off to London with the firm intention of becoming a gentleman and realizing his "great expectations." Dickens's mastery of caricature-projecting the richness of life and giving depth to the atmosphere in which the events take place-is never more evident than in this masterwork. Nor is the theme of false pride presented more clearly anywhere else. The desire of Pip to improve himself is gratified by the advent of his "great expectations," but this leads him to snobbishness. Only when his fortune changes is he able to obtain stature.

Three Men In A Boat Audiobook

Three Men In A Boat

Author: Jerome K Jerome Narrator: Hugh Laurie Release Date: May 2017

Three Men In A Boat ranks as one of the most amusing and agreeable books in the English language. Written soon after Jerome's marriage, it bubbles over with the happiness he felt. Rather than recording one particular trip, the story combines many boating excursions which Jerome had made with his friends. The three men round on each other when things go wrong but nothing serious mars the essentially sunny, idyllic nature of the book. The beautiful countryside through which its heroes pass is poetically described. 1. EXPEDITION PLANS. George, Harris, and J. are feeling seedy. Comparing symptoms, they realise that each of them is suffering from a whole range of aliments, J. being particularly concerned about his liver. They decide that what they need is a complete break. After discussing the alternatives, they decide on a Thames boating trip and begin to make plans. They argue about what to take and what not to take; George suggests that they need not take many clothes as they will be able to wash them in the Thames. 2. DEPARTURE. Unable to agree on what food to take with them, the Three men amass a mountain of supplies which J. volunteers to pack. To his dismay, the others leave him to it. After repeatedly having to repack to put in his boots or find his toothbrush, J. Hands over to George and Harris. Aided by Montmorency the dog, they proceed to make an even worse mess of it. The Three Men go to bed intent on an early start. Despites this, their landlady, Mrs Poppets, has to wake them at nine o' clock. George goes to work for the morning and Harris and J. reach Waterloo Station at eleven. They are unable to find a train for Kingston until they tip a driver to go that way instead of taking the mail to Exeter. 3. EMBARKATION. The boat is waiting and they set off, Harris rowing, J. steering and daydreaming - until they crash into the bank. As they pass Hampton court, J. recalls how Harris once led a party endlessly round and round its maze until rescued by an attendant. Stopping for lunch, they are accused of trespassing but are undeterred. At Weybridge, they rendezvous with George, who has brought a surprise: a banjo, which he is planning to learn to play. 4. EVENING ON THE WATER. Unwillingly, George starts towing and J. expounds on the delights he has experienced on other boating trips when being towed by girls; how it takes three girls to tow one boat. Finally evening draws in, the Three Men put up their boat's cover - discovering this is something which takes them a great deal longer than expected - and make supper. Afterwards, filled with good food and goodwill, they relax. But the boat makes a hard bed for the night and the wind is found to be disturbing. J. wakes before dawn to commune poetically with nature. 5. THE OPEN THAMES. In the grey chill of morning, the Three Men's earlier enthusiasm for a quick dip evaporates. George and Harris stay in the boat but J. creeps out on a branch to wash. Suddenly he falls in, much impressing the others, who think he is taking a swim. At lunch, unable to find a tin opener, they attempt to open a tin of pineapple with pocket-knife, scissors, a stone and finally the mast. All efforts fail and they throw the unopened tin into the Thames. Then, blessed by a favourable wind, they hoist sail and glide serenely on, straight into a punt of fishermen. 6. MARLOW AND BEYOND. At Marlow, J.'s fox-terrier Montmorency pursues a large tom cat. Instead of fleeing frantically, the cat turns round and coolly confronts him. Stunned, Montmorency backs down and gives up chasing cats for good. Meanwhile, the Three Men's shopping expedition grows until a whole army of grocery-carriers arrives at the little boat with their provisions. That evening they make Irish stew, adding everything they can find, including salmon and eggs. This upsets Harris's stomach and he stays behind while the others go to the pub. Returning in the rain, George and J. almost fail to find the boat. 7. OXFORD. J. is convinced he is doing more work than the others; oddly, the others think just the opposite. A friend's steam launch gives the boat a very useful tow from Reading to Streatley. Here the Three Men stay for two days and have their clothes professionally washed. They pay three times the normal price, as on George's advice they have tried washing their clothes on the river with disastrous results. Passing through a lock, J. recalls a time when they were nearly drowned while posing for a photograph, the boat's nose getting caught under the lock gate without their noticing. Finally, the Three Men reach their goal - Oxford. 8. THREE MEN OUT OF A BOAT. At Oxford Montmorency has plenty of good fights, and after two days the Three Men turn for home. The weather has turned too, with steady rain that chills them through and through. A cold supper fails to restore them and George's attempts at banjo playing make things a great deal worse. They recall the delight of London and remember there is a convenient train. Shamefacedly, they leave the boat and take a train back, seeing a show at the Alhambra and dining at the Bistro, happy to be out of a boat.
