Finished up the first of the Rivers of London books. I agree that it's well done. There was a one minute section roughly 3/4th's of the way through where the narrator changed voice slightly and there was a bit of a cough. I suspect an editor issue rather than a narrator though.

Moved on to Winter Warriors, the next in the Drenai series by David Gemmell.

I quite agree. I thought Sellwood did an admirable job with the many accents. One of the best books I listened to last year.

I've been meaning to pick up more Dan Simmons - Carrion Comfort was possibly the most genuinely creepy horror novel I've read, and I used to read quite a lot of horror. I've about hit my limit on Spellmonger and have some credits to burn, so maybe I'll grab The Terror. I didn't realize the TV series was based on a Simmons book.

ETA: Library had it! They had two editions, one read by John Lee (same reader I've been listing to for 3.5 Spellmonger books) and one with a cover that said Simon Vance, but a listing that said Tom Sellwood, so I guess I'll find out what I got when it downloads...

Oops I'm sorry, I didn't notice your response. looks like others answered. They are well written to me - they remind me of the old hard case crime /noirish mystery type of writing and dialogue style.

Yes, I'm still in the early books and am enjoying it. He comes across more than a usual lawyer, that's for sure. Sorry to hear that tones down later.

Listening to a memoir Between the Stops: The View of My Life from the Top of the Number 12 Bus by Sandi Toksvig. She is apparently famous in Britain, but I had not heard of her until browsing Audible for recent books. She's very funny!

She is also the co-presenter of The Great British Bake Off.

The Terror (was indeed the Tom Sellwood version) is proving a good pre-winter read, but not at all suitable for bedtime. I've been retreating to The Spellmonger's Honeymoon for my bedtime story.

I've also been listening to dharma talks during my morning routine the last 2-3 weeks, mostly Gil Fronsdale via the Audio Dharma app. Simmons' lurid caricatures make quite the contrast to lectures on loving kindness.

Listening to The Devil in the White City by Eric Larsen, read by Scott Brick. About a quarter of the way in, and it's more about the "White City" (the 1893 Chicago World's Fair) than the "Devil" (H.H. Holmes, murdering bad guy) so far. Interesting story so far, regardless. I knew absolutely nothing about the Chicago World's Fair (other than it existed), so I'm enjoying learning about it.

I've just finished A Kim Jong-Il Production: The Extraordinary True Story of a Kidnapped Filmmaker, His Star Actress, and a Young Dictator's Rise to Power by Paul Fischer, read by Steve Park. It's a fascinating window into Kim Jong-Il's repressive dictatorship of North Korea, as, a notorious cinemaphile, he tried to revive North Korea's moribund film industry by kidnapping South Korea's leading director and actress. It's both fascinating and horrifying, if a scootch too long for my tastes.

So for something mindless over the long holiday weekend, I've cued up an old reliable, the 20th Sharpe novel by Bernard Cornwall, Sharpe's Waterloo, read by Frederick Davidson. Tough luck, Napoleon! Sharpe is invincible.

Only one more Sharpe novel to go after this one.

I just finished listening to Neogenesis, the 21st novel in Sharon Lee and Steve Miller's Liaden Universe, narrated by Eileen Stevens. This was a re-read in preparation for the release next Tuesday of their 22nd novel in the series, Accepting the Lance. I'll likely read that in eBook format, and then listen when the Audible version becomes available.

Next up, back with Payment in Blood, from Elizabeth George, read by Donada Peters.

Recently finished A Shadow on the Lens, featuring a crime scene photographer detective in 1904 Wales. Lots of suspense with outstanding narration!

I finished The Terror, well done story and audio. Listened to this on Audible.

After this on Scribd, I listened to The Poet by Michael Connelly. Narrated by Buck Schirner, he did a good job. The story lags a bit later but the first quarter is especially good. Now I'm listening, on Scribd, Duma Key by King. This story is so slow, zzzzzz. The narrator is okay, but it's just his easy going voice with the loosely plotting story would be a good sleeping nightcap.

Hello, I'm new here and wanted to get involved straight away. Personally, I prefer non-fiction audiobook and I'm currently listening to Quiet: The Power of Introverts by Susan Cain.

I can really connect with this book as I myself am somewhat of an introvert.

I will definitely be contributing more to this thread. Speak soon
