Here are the last four audiobooks I read:
Dead Souls by Nikolai Gogol (obtained from Hoopla, read by Nicholas Boulton). This book’s ending reminded me of a cross between Fyodor Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment and Frank R. Stockton’s The Lady and the Tiger. A little strange, but good.
I Contain Multitudes: The Microbes Within Us and a Grander View of Life by Ed Yong (an Audible selection narrated by Charlie Anson). Read this book and you’ll never be lonely again.
Micromegas by Voltaire (Audible Original: Bedtime Story read by Prentice Onayemi). Micromegas was a repeat of a story I first read in an ebook collection. Love the story, but the narrator’s delivery made it difficult to stay awake. I can't complain, considering that it’s part of an Audible collection of stories meant to help people sleep, but I got it because it was a free Audible Plus selection and wasn’t interested in the sedative effects.
Murder by Misrule by Anna Castle (a 99¢ Chirp bargain when I bought it, read by Joel Froomkin) was a quite fun whodunnit featuring a team of amateur sleuths led by none other than Sir Francis Bacon. A few liberties were taken with the actual history of the period, as the author herself reveals in the postscript, but not so many that it spoiled the story.
