No, the audio book isn't free just the ebook. The link s/b valid, at least I can still follow it. But you can get to it by going to the Baen ebooks site and navigating through the Baen Free Library to 1632. The audiobook is on Audible, and I assume on Kobo, but I don't use Kobo for audio books so haven't checked.



Yup, the link works for me now. I was getting the error on the Baen main page as well, so must have been a glitch.


And turns out that the audiobook is already in my Audible library. One nice thing about a failing memory is some pleasant surprises!

Isn't that the truth! George Guidall's narration is really quite good. And by now I can't imagine anyone other voice for these books.

Right now I am listening to Naomi Klein's "No is Not Enough"... any environmentalist should read or like me, listen to it, is absolutely rich in content

Of all things a science book! Michael Page is doing an outstanding job (as usual) narrating Stuff Matters by Mark Miodownik.

I recently bought the complete Sherlock Holmes collection by Stephen Fry. Stephen really is an awesome teller of stories!

For those who've been waiting for it, Nathan Lowell's fantasy Zepheria's Call is finally avaible on Audible. (The full series link is here.) If you don't know the series, I quite recommend it.

I'm listening to Brad Thor's "State of the Union," which is also read by Guidall.
Guidall is very good. The book is not grabbing me quite as much as the previous book in this series, but that may be partially due to transference of hatred because I'm listening on the Hoopla app, which, while it's much more stable than when I had tried it in the past, is still an awful app. Curse you DRM.

I'm currently listening to The Island of Dr. Moreau, one of my first Downpour purchases.

Very enjoyable to encounter this story again.

I’ve been on a Victorian novel kick lately, listening to The Return of the Native, He Knew He Was Rght and now Wives and Daughters. Sometimes I shy away from them because of length (and He Knew He Was Right was a whopping 30½ hours); it seems like more of a commitment than I want to make, but they go swiftly. And the virtue of that defect is that I’m not constantly casting about for my next listen.

I'm up to the fifth book in the Chet and Bernie mysteries by Spencer Quinn: "A Fistful of Collars." I like them well enough to keep listening, and even to keep tolerating the still-awful Hoopla Digital app, the only place I find most of them for free.
But I have to admit they are pretty formulaic and repetitive. Not the core mystery plots, which I find interesting, and a well done, somewhat lighter take on hard-boiled detective stories, but Chet the dog's narration. Quinn has found this brilliant device for increasing his productivity as a writer: At least a solid ten percent--maybe more--of Chet's narration is cut and pasted from all the previous books...and sometimes from previous chapters in the same books. See, Chet repeats the same adorable dogisms..a lot. And since he's a dog, with no clear sense of time, a short attention span, and not so great a memory, he's apt to repeat things he already mentioned....a lot. It was all cute and original for the first two books. By book 5, I'm kind of wishing Chet could hire an editor....but I keep listening. Gotta find out how Chet and Bernie nab the perp!

@ApK: I know exactly what you mean about authors padding their word count. Even though I haven't (yet) tried a Chet and Bernie mystery, I've got other authors who've clearly been guilty of much the same. And yet, I keep reading/listening.
