"This is the funniest thing I've heard on Radio 4 in years and I'm considering suing the network for irreparable damage to my sides." (Jane Anderson, Radio Times)

Fantastic series

This is a fantastic series from BBC which plays on radio 4. The premise for each episode is very simple, there are four competing in each episode, each of them is given a topic and they are asked to provide a narration on it - most of the information is false, with five truths being added in. The other people have to try to guess what the truths are.
This is a great series to learn about some very strange facts about obscure things which is always fun and it is also good to listen to with your kids if they are over 10 or so. My children and I listen to all the time and we all love it. As a final suggestion if you have trouble getting to sleep but don't mind a voice to help you drift off this is a great series to use - you don't miss anything important to a story and the episodes are only 30 mins so you can set your sleep cycle to the end of the chapter.

Addicted

Would you listen to The Unbelievable Truth, Series 12 again? Why?

Absolutely hilarious show - David Mitchell, where have you been all my life?

What other book might you compare The Unbelievable Truth, Series 12 to, and why?

A radio version of QI...if you're a fan of the TV show then this is unmissable - especially when his wife is on!

Which scene did you most enjoy?

No episode or joke really stood out, how could it when I was laughing throughout?

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Moved to tears with Mitchell's razor sharp wit and perfectly timed delivery...I promise I'm not his publisher....

Any additional comments?

Be careful when driving and listening to this...I don't think insurers consider "couldn't see through the tears" as a valid response to why you didn't see that car pull out in front of you.
