Recently finished audiobooks:

The Island of Doctor Moreau by H. G. Wells. Though I read The Time Machine (which I also own as an audiobook) years ago, I had never tried anything else by this author. Overall, I was very pleased with the experience. The story is more of a fantasy adventure than science fiction, with undertones of Frankenstein. The version I listened to was the SFF Audio Podcast #140. And while this is a professionally produced audiobook (from Tantor Media, read by Jonathan Kent), you can legally download it for free through iTunes or from the SFF audio website.

Another freebie: A Hunger for the Infinite: A Galactic Center Story by Gregory Benford. This is currently free from Audible. It's a novella set in the universe of his Galactic Center series. I generally like Benford, but I wasn't really thrilled by this story.

Currently listening to:

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. I am about two hours in and I am enjoying it very much so far. I am listening to the British (?) version read by Rupert Degas who does a great job with the characters.

In my bedroom: In the Garden of Iden by Kage Baker. I have been a fan of her Company series ever since I read this book years ago and was very pleased to see it as an audiobook. This is a re-listen. I still think the Spanish accents of the characters are a bit exaggerated, but it is still a good narration (by Janan Raouf).
