Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin!

Love love love the performance! nothing to complain about! The reader did such an amazing job with the different character, and it almost feels like wizarding world came alive in our car during our road trips. I was crying and laughing like a crazy person and was so captivated by the story thanks to great storytelling.

Crazy Rich Asians is the outrageously funny debut novel about three super-rich, pedigreed Chinese families and the gossip, backbiting, and scheming that occurs when the heir to one of the most massive fortunes in Asia brings home his ABC (American-born Chinese) girlfriend to the wedding of the season.

I really struggled. The performers attempt on the different characters are dreadful. Can't tell them apart or understand her at all. Storyline is funny and classic rom com in a south east asian setting. So if you like Romantic Comedy I would really recommend just reading the book.

Although Jodie is only eight years old, she is violent, aggressive, and has already been through numerous foster families. Her last hope is Cathy Glass. At the Social Services office, Cathy (an experienced foster carer) is pressured into taking Jodie as a new placement. Jodie's challenging behaviour has seen off five carers in four months. Despite her reservations, Cathy decides to take on Jodie to protect her from being placed in an institution.

I think my boyfriend never expected to be into it but he couldn't help listening and wanting to know how poor Jodie turns out. It is a very very sad story and beautiful book. Easy to understand and relate to the emotions of the author and the people portrayed.
