The Design of Everyday Things – Donald A. Norma – Peter Berkrot

The main question in my mind after listening to this audiobook is easily enough answered: How old IS this book, anyhow? In the introduction the author talks about how the book isn’t dated. Well, it was originally published in 1988. … Continue reading

Carrots – Colleen Helme – Wendy Tremont King

This sounded like a fun idea, and since I had (sadly) bought the Kindle edition I was able to get the Audible edition for cheap. Unfortunately, neither the book nor the narration wore well. The story itself was fine: Shelby … Continue reading

Just One Damned Thing After Another – Jodi Taylor – Zara Ramm

I. Loved. This. So much. The early part of 2015 was just crammed with time travel audiobooks. I didn’t mean to do that; it just happened. I didn’t even know a couple of them were time travel till I started … Continue reading

The Girl at the End of the World – Richard Levesque – LC Kane

The Stress of Her Regard – Tim Powers – Simon Vance

I don’t recall if I’ve read anything of Tim Powers’s before; I’ve known the name forever, though. And Simon Vance narrated, so with the description listed for The Stress of Her Regard seemed like a solid lock. But it was … Continue reading

Whose Body – Dorothy L. Sayers – Nadia May

Another reading, another take on the book. Nothing new and startlingly original, by any means, but it is always different having a book read to you. And Nadia May did a truly lovely job with it. I love her as … Continue reading

The Disappearance of Billy Moore – Aaron Paul Lazar – George Kuch

This was an audiobook requested directly from the author on Goodreads’s lovely Audiobooks group; both description and sample sounded intriguing. And it is a good story, with a good narration: George Kuch is a unique and engaging reader. My only … Continue reading

Murder in Mount Moriah – Mindy Quigley – Holly Adams

I was all set to post a one-star review of an audiobook I loathed, but – yesterday was Christmas. I don’t want to do that to someone. I’ll just stick to positive reviews for the next week or so… This … Continue reading

A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court – Mark Twain – Jeff Hays

While I’ve long been a fan of the man Mark Twain, and know a good bit about him (living in Connecticut, it’s almost hard to avoid the latter), I just haven’t ever read much of his work. Or, you know, … Continue reading

The Complete Sherlock Holmes – read by Simon Vance

As it turns out, I don’t like Sherlock Holmes very much. The idea? Some of the writing? The kernel of the character and Watson and 221B and Mrs. Hudson and so on? Absolutely. Holmes himself and his mysteries? Oh, God. … Continue reading
