Finished up "Zero Day" by Baldacci and got started a couple days ago with "Cold Days" by Butcher. Pretty good Harry Dresden, and nice to have the narrator back that I'm used to.

How do you like it? Have you listened to The Hobbit and LOTR's with Rob Inglis? If so, how do you compare the reader?

Finished Invader, by C. J. Cherryh, read by Daniel Thomas May. Very good. The reading is a bit slow, but tolerable, and the voices well done and easily distinguished. This is a strange series in some ways. Long passages that don't really have much happening, but the main character, Bren Cameron, doing a stream of consciousness angst. Which usually I would avoid like the plague. But here, it works for me. The world Ms. Cherryh has created is compelling, different, and interesting, and the characters are consistent. This is the second book in the series, and the entire series is available on Audible. I'm enjoying it and finding excuses to listen -- always a good sign.
Finished Inheritor and starting book four(or book one of the second arc, if you prefer), Precursor. Really enjoying these.

I really like it. I've listened to the Rob Inglis LOTR as well. I'd put them on par at the same quality.

Thanks. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be available yet in audible, just as an out of print cd audio book for $50, much like the LOTR and Hobbit audio books were for so many years. Kind of hard to imagine why it's not available. Well, I'll try to keep my eyes open for it.

I'm in the middle of The Speed of Dark and I'm really enjoying it so far. A certain exec seems like a bit of a mustache-twirling bad guy, but overall it's great.

An excellent book, one I didn't expect to like and was completely fooled. I only read it because I like Ms. Moon's books so much. I listened to it first, and then recently read it in eBook format.

I just finished 2061: Odyssey 3 by Arthur C. Clarke. Dependable and entertaining, as his books usually are.

I listened to this one last year and it was among my favorite listens for the year. I haven't read any other book by Elizabeth Moon (yet), but I definitely recommend this one. The narrator was great, too.

If you enjoy space opera adventure, I highly recommend Moon's "Vatta's War" series, starting with Trading in Danger.

I probably wouldn't have picked it up if not for the recommendations in this thread--thanks!

It seems that this series is among the few titles I can actually buy from Tantor (about 95% of their stuff doesn't seem to be available where I live). I didn't know if the books were any good, so I didn't buy the first one during the last sale, but now I'll definitely look out for them when the next sale comes along. Thanks!
