Finished it and liked it. As I said, I usually don't read books with animal protagonists, but this being a classic, I am glad I have made an exception. It was read by William Roberts who did a fine job.
Also finished Illegal Alien
by Robert J. Sawyer. It was as enjoyable as ever. And even though I reread it last year, I had already forgotten the twist at the end. I must be getting old.
Also listened to the free sample story from Neil Gaiman's Smoke & Mirrors
which I got recently from Audible: Shoggoth's Old Peculiar
. I love it when he dives into Lovecraftian territory, and this story is no exception. It is read by the author himself and it is a wonderful reading (like always). I also liked the included sample from his new book quite a bit.
I am currently listening to Barrayar
by Lois McMaster Bujold, read by Grover Gardner. Really like it. I read the two Cordelia books in the series ages ago and liked them a lot. Hopefully, they will get me into the mood to continue with the series.
I am also listening to another classic, Treasure Island
by Robert Louis Stevenson, another one I have never read before. I am enjoying it so far.
