Over the holidays, I have listened to Tim Curry reading A Christmas Carol, to The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle by Arthur Conan Doyle and to a BBC dramatization of Hercule Poirot's Christmas. All of them were pretty good, the Tim Curry one being awesome.

I have now gone back to more "normal" stuff. Yesterday I finished Chasm City by Alastair Reynolds. I am still not sure if I liked it or not. It was interesting, but I sometimes found it hard to follow the plot. John Lee isn't my favorite narrator, either, though I got used to his voice and look forward to listening to House of Suns next year.

I have now started Storm Front by Jim Butcher, the first book in the Harry Dresden series, which I have read years ago but don't remember a lot of. I have picked this up during the holiday sale at Audible. The reader is very good, though sometimes a bit fast for my taste (English isn't my first language).

I also started Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, which I got when I signed up at Downpour. This is an old favorite, but I have never listened to the unabridged version narrated by Davina Porter before. I like it a lot so far.
