Comedian Isy Suttie and opera singer and broadcaster Beverley Humphreys share their favourite books with Harriett Gilbert.

Beverley's choice is the Gothic thriller The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, which she describes as a "love letter to literature."

Isy picks The Comfort of Strangers by Ian McEwan, a sinister tale of two couples in an unnamed European town, which she admits does not have a particularly happy ending.

Harriett's choice is the story of a young man with learning difficulties whose intelligence is enhanced by a scientific procedure - Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes.

Producer: Toby Field.
