Project Hail Mary – Andy Weir – (AUDIOBOOK) – 06.06.21

I heard an interview with Andy Weir on the radio just before I listened to this audiobook, so I was a little bit spoiled and knew something of what was going on before the book revealed it, but I don’t think that took too much away from the experience. Like The Martian (which I loved)Continue reading “Project Hail Mary – Andy Weir – (AUDIOBOOK) – 06.06.21”

Lycanthropy and Other Chronic Illnesses – (AUDIOBOOK) – Kristen O’Neal – 23.05.21

I LOVED this audiobook. It’s narrated by a promising medical student, Priya, who has to drop out of college after getting a really bad case of Lyme Disease which leaves her so weak and fatigued that she’s unable to function normally. She joins an online support group for people suffering from chronic illness, and oneContinue reading “Lycanthropy and Other Chronic Illnesses – (AUDIOBOOK) – Kristen O’Neal – 23.05.21”

Tomorrow – Damian Dibben – (AUDIOBOOK) – 09.05.21

I really wanted to like this book – I thought it would be like The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue (which I loved!) with a fun twist of being narrated by a dog. Well, in a sense it was, like Addie LaRue, the dog narrator (named Tomorrow) was immortal – not from making a pactContinue reading “Tomorrow – Damian Dibben – (AUDIOBOOK) – 09.05.21”

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue – V.E. Schwab – (AUDIOBOOK) – 25.04.21

I very much enjoyed listening to this audiobook. As always I listened mostly on my pre-work morning runs, and I have really enjoyed my runs of late due in no small part to my pleasure at this story. Adeline Larue was born in France in the 18th century, and was not satisfied to accept theContinue reading “The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue – V.E. Schwab – (AUDIOBOOK) – 25.04.21”

Agent to the Stars (AUDIOBOOK) – John Scalzi (Narrated by: Wil Wheaton) – 19.01.21

I really enjoyed this audiobook. It is an example of a sci-fi comedy that doesn’t resort to ‘lowest common denominator’ slapstick or just stupid schoolboy humour (like the awful Elvenquest). This is a thoughtful and engaging story of an American agent who usually works with actors, but is given the secret task of putting aContinue reading “Agent to the Stars (AUDIOBOOK) – John Scalzi (Narrated by: Wil Wheaton) – 19.01.21”

Horrorstorr – Grady Hendrix (AUDIOBOOK) – 31.12.20

I wanted an audiobook for my husband, Paul, and I to listen to on our road trip to my mother’s funeral. We were travelling between Christmas and New Year with the added fun of a surge in Covid cases making new travel restrictions be enforced daily! Our trip took us from our home in NorthernContinue reading “Horrorstorr – Grady Hendrix (AUDIOBOOK) – 31.12.20”
