Sweet Sorrow Audiobook

Sweet Sorrow

Author: David Nicholls Narrator: Rory Kinnear Release Date: July 2019

One life-changing summer, Charlie meets Fran...David Nicholls's highly anticipated new novel, narrated by Rory Kinnear In 1997, Charlie Lewis is the kind of boy you don't remember in the school photograph. His exams have not gone well. At home he is looking after his father, when surely it should be the other way round, and if he thinks about the future at all, it is with a kind of dread. Then Fran Fisher bursts into his life and despite himself, Charlie begins to hope. But if Charlie wants to be with Fran, he must take on a challenge that could lose him the respect of his friends and require him to become a different person. He must join the Company. And if the Company sounds like a cult, the truth is even more appalling. The price of hope, it seems, is Shakespeare. Poignant, funny, enchanting, devastating, Sweet Sorrow is a tragicomedy about the rocky path to adulthood and the confusion of family life, a celebration of the reviving power of friendship and that brief, searing explosion of first love that can only be looked at directly after it has burned out. 'Such a beautiful book. Captures perfectly a moment in time we've all experienced.' GRAHAM NORTON 'He's such a genius. His novels are relatable and recognizable, but also surprising, breath-taking and life-enhancing' NINA STIBBE

Middle England Audiobook

Middle England

Author: Jonathan Coe Narrator: Rory Kinnear Release Date: November 2018

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Middle England by Jonathan Coe, read by Rory Kinnear. 'It was tempting to think, at times like this, that some bizarre hysteria had gripped the British people' Beginning eight years ago on the outskirts of Birmingham, where car factories have been replaced by Poundland, and London, where frenzied riots give way to Olympic fever, Middle England follows a brilliantly vivid cast of characters through a time of immense change. There are newlyweds Ian and Sophie, who disagree about the future of the country and, possibly, the future of their relationship; Doug, the political commentator who writes impassioned columns about austerity from his Chelsea townhouse, and his radical teenage daughter who will stop at nothing in her quest for social justice; Benjamin Trotter, who embarks on an apparently doomed new career in middle age, and his father Colin, whose last wish is to vote in the European referendum. And within all these lives is the story of modern England: a story of nostalgia and delusion; of bewilderment and barely-suppressed rage. Following in the footsteps of The Rotters' Club and The Closed Circle, Jonathan Coe's new novel is the novel for our strange new times. 'COE IS AMONG THE HANDFUL OF NOVELISTS WHO CAN TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT THE TEMPER OF OUR TIMES' OBSERVER 'Probably the best English novelist of his generation' Nick Hornby 'You can't stop reading....I was haunted for days' Independent on 'Number 11'

The Sentence is Death Audiobook

The Sentence is Death

Author: Anthony Horowitz Narrator: Rory Kinnear Release Date: November 2018

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Another Word For Murder by Anthony Horowitz., read by Rory Kinnear. Death, deception, and a detective with quite a lot to hide stalk the pages of Anthony Horowitz's brilliant new murder mystery, the second in the bestselling series starring Private Investigator Daniel Hawthorne. 'You shouldn't be here. It's too late...' These, heard over the phone, were the last recorded words of successful celebrity-divorce lawyer Richard Pryce, found bludgeoned to death in his bachelor pad with a bottle of wine - a 1982 Chateau Lafite worth £3,000, to be precise. Odd, considering he didn't drink. Why this bottle? And why those words? And why was a three-digit number painted on the wall by the killer? And, most importantly, which of the man's many, many enemies did the deed? Baffled, the police are forced to bring in Private Investigator Daniel Hawthorne and his sidekick, the author Anthony, who's really getting rather good at this murder investigation business. But as Hawthorne takes on the case with characteristic relish, it becomes clear that he, too, has secrets to hide. As our reluctant narrator becomes ever more embroiled in the case, he realises that these secrets must be exposed - even at the risk of death...
