Reviews of some of the audiobooks on which Tamsin has worked.

The Beasts of Clawstone Castle, by Eva Ibbotson

"David Tennant is even better as a reader than an actor, with an insane glee in relishing eccentric characters. My children were begging to go back in the hot car to hear what happened next."


Sleepyhead, by Mark Billingham

"The plot is as taut as a razor-wire, the psychological tension keeps you listening. The addition of music, minimal but spot on, makes the suspense even more spine-chilling. So does Robert Glenister’s reading. If you’re listening in bed, you’d better keep the light on."


Two Caravans, by Marina Lewycka

"Alone at the microphone, the stupendous Sian Thomas becomes an enormous international cast of every age, sex and temperament. Don’t read it; listen to it"


Tudor Mystery Series, C J Samsom

“Having hugely enjoyed Anton Lesser’s reading of Sovereign, the third of C.J. Sansom’s Tudor Mystery series starring the hunchbacked lawyer Matthew Shardlake, I backtracked to hear the first two in the series, Dissoluton and Dark Fire. After hearing him narrate all three books, I can’t imagine anyone better suited to the role.”

The Times

A Fashion in Shrouds and Tiger in the Smoke, Margery Allingham

"Margery Allingham’s A Fashion in Shrouds and Tiger in the Smoke see Mr. Campion solving crimes with impeccable style. Philip Franks sounds, marvellously, as if he’s reading in a dinner-jacket."


Toast, by Nigel Slater

"Sad, funny, embarrassing and scrupulously frank."

Independent on Sunday

Churchill, by Roy Jenkins

"John Sessions is an inspired choice of narrator. He manages to capture the zest of the complex man and has fun with the bitchiness of Churchill’s colleagues, breathing life into the atmosphere at Westminster at that time."

The Times

Rapture, 52 love poems by Carol Anne Duffy

"Juliet Stevenson’s deft reading extracts every ounce of the lover’s fire, vulnerability and heartache."

The Observer

Suite Francaise, by Irene Nemirovksy

"I cannot imagine anyone reading this powerful, unsentimental story better than Eleanor Bron."


Little Darlings, by Sam Llewellyn

"Morwenna Banks’s superb reading will have children aged nine and older laughing like lunatics."

Independent on Sunday

The Tenderness of Wolves, by Stef Penny

Read by Siobhan Redmond. "Beautifully-written, brilliantly read."


Journey to the River Sea, by Eva Ibbotson

Read by Imelda Staunton "We laughed, we gasped, we drove needlessly about, simply to keep listening to this wonderful story."


Quite Ugly One Morning by Christopher Brookmyre

"Crime and the blackest of black humour. Wickedly terrific reading from one-man theatre David Tennant."

Sunday Express

Fire in the Blood, by Irene Nemirovsky

"Jim Norton’s rich voice captures the burning embers of the love and hatred that glow through the story. His narration of Silvio’s final musing stops all the clocks."


Grass for His Pillow, by Lian Hearn

Read by Isla Blair and Jamie Glover "Thrums with passion and tension."

Independent on Sunday

Thames: Sacred River by Peter Ackroyd

"What a stylish partnership! Callow’s voice makes splendid theatre, complementing Ackroyd’s flamboyance." Observer

On Beauty, by Zadie Smith

"This crowded novel sparks with the firecracker energy of its many characters, an energy matched by that of narrator Adjoa Andoh, whose range of voices is brilliant. A vibrant audio drama."


In the Company of the Courtesan, by Sarah Dunant

"Tom Hollander’s seductive tones enhance the heady sensuousness of the Venetian world."


Engleby, by Sebastian Faulks

"Brilliantly read by Michael Maloney. A compelling, disturbing listen."


Redemption Falls, by Joseph O’Connor

"Kerry Shale is, quite simply magnificent. In his voice every character lives and breathes; in his rich, rich reading is a magic that matches the author’s words. This is audio at its very best. Unmatchable."


Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and the Race Against Time

David Tennant read Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and the Race Against Time completely brilliantly.
