If you have time to kick back and relax over the holidays, then these audio treats will be music to your ears.

Last Christmas

Greg Wise & Emma Thompson, Quercus, £19.99

This was released in conjunction with the rom-com of the same name. But the book explores the true meaning of the holiday season. It has contributions from a line up of celebs such as Twiggy, Meryl Streep and Olivia Colman, as well as people who have been homeless, refugees and charity workers.

Talking To Strangers

Malcolm Gladwell, Penguin Audio, £16

If you’ve ever wondered why we get people wrong, or why we don’t spot a lie, or accurately judge a stranger’s motives then this is the audio book for you. Gladwell uses a series of encounters and misunderstandings from history, psychology and infamous legal cases to explore the darker side of human nature.

The Beatrix Potter Collection

Beatrix Potter, Audible, £11.09

Just over four hours long and digestible in easy segments, this delightful offering is pitched at three to six-year-olds. It’s the perfect way to introduce youngsters to some of Potter’s best loved characters. Included are classics like Peter Rabbit, Mrs Tiggy-Winkle and Jemima Puddle-Duck.

Dishonesty Is The Second-Best Policy

David Mitchell, Audible Studios, £14.99

Mitchell’s collection aims to make light of the madness of the 21st Century. And it’s a hoot; from scampi, the Olympics, and terrorism, to exercise, rude street names, and salad cream. Mitchell picks a fun path between the commercialisation of Christmas and the true spirit of Hallowe’en.

Behind The Mask: My Autobiography

Tyson Fury, Penguin Audio, £13

This is the story of a Manchester lad from Irish traveller stock who was born premature weighing just one pound. He grew up to become one of the most unlikely heavyweight champions the world has known before alcohol and drug abuse saw him stripped of his titles.
