Too fast
Wonderful to have the opportunity to listen to presentations and reviews but the journalists are talking too fast and slurred. Sorry to say! Lena Olsson

Used to be better
I quite enjoyed the book discussions on this podcast when there was only one presenter interviewing the author. Now that there are two presenters they spend too much time chatting and giggling to the detriment of providing information about the books.

Fascinatingly diverse range of books discussed, great clips from live events and engaging presenters.
