Audible/Audio Books

Recommended Posts

We are Legion, We are Bob was very enjoyable.

i listened to “The Land” by Aleron Kong.  Mildly entertaining, but not a hardy recomendation.

Off To Be The Wizard was also mildly entertaining, maybe becaue I really enjoy Luke Daniels narration.  As much as i like Nick Podehl’s work on Kingkiller Chronicles, I think luke would have been a better choice given the main character’s supposed Baritone voice.

 

Ender’s Game and Ready Player One are good listens.

Lisrened to “Off to be the Wizard” recently. The writing is not good, but the story is original and the performance bu Luke Daniels makes it entertaining.

Upon review, yes. But...if you see one you like I can say that Commune Book 2 is very very good.

 

Of course you'd then need Commune book 1 but...value there to some.

For what I normally like to read, yes agreed.

 

I've had a couple of buddies at work recommend "It's Your Ship" by Captain D. Michael Abrashoff. I hold them both in high regard so I have it on the cart for now.

 

I also saw "The Ocean at the End of the Lane" by Neil Gaiman. I'm just a huge fan of Gaiman. I read his Vertigo series Sandman right when it came out and I was still in College. This one book is only 5 hours long so I'll probably pass on it. 

 

I'll keep browsing as time permits. But yes, it would be great to have a larger or at least complete series here and there.

A short one (4-5 hours) that I recently really liked: Improv Wisdom, by Patricia Ryan Madson.

 

Teaches you how to apply the rules of theatrical improvisation to daily lives, be less anxious and focus on the present moment. Inspirational and also very practical. For personal, professional and sports life alike.

So last year the family picked up listening to the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher, I'm at Changes (Book 12) now and this is probably my favorite series on audible to date. It is about a Wizard who also happens to be a Private Detective in Chicago, IL. And he openly advertises both professions. The narrator, Marsters, is also my favorite to date. Really good series with a little bit of everything and great story lines. Really digging Harry Dresden as a character.

Love the movie JAWS? Then don't read the audiobook unless you want to hear Mrs. Brody's rape fantasies. For sure a case of the movie blowing the book out of the water. so to speak.

 

Been using the LIBBY app and borrowing audiobooks from our local libraries. Cool for those iffy titles you might not want to risk paying for.

 

I assume the selections and wait times vary by location but I have enjoyed some good content that I either missed in my early days or whatever.

 

"To Kill a Mockingbird" was amazing.

 

"Blood Meridian" by Cormac McCarthy was a violent gloomy crazy ride. 

 

"Fear" was interesting and scary.

 

"A Man Called Ove" was really great and soon to be a Tom Hanks movie (Currently a foreign film)

 

"The Real West" by Bill O'Reilly was really good. I love Deadwood and was craving some history on gunfighters and the wild west in general. Very good!
