|The case of the missing servant : from the files of Vish Puri, India’s "most pri|
by Tarquin Hall
One of those "free vacation in a safe, cozy, yet wondrous locale"--as opposed to Dr. Siri or Bangkok 8 (they are too perilous)--this is a fun audio. Probably fine on paper, but Sam Dastor needs a listen, he surrounds you with the wonder of India, and makes the cute cozy multiple-case detective yarn well worth borrowing. posted Jul 31, 2013 at 5:35PM
|A pelican at Blandings [electronic resource]
There are good and bad audiobooks from PG Wodehouse. Some readers too veddy veddy precious, some happy romps! This stars the silly but brilliant voice of Brit star Nigel Lambert as the wack-a-doodle party peer Gally at Blandings Castle. While I agree Jonathan Cecil outshines him a bit, this is a pretty good way to search some very fine British satire/comic novels...by reader name. You’ll be glad you grabbed the audio book. posted Jul 31, 2013 at 5:32PM
|The help [sound recording] : a novel |
by Stockett, Kathryn.
Astonishingly good - I thought the audio couldn't improve on the printed version. I was wrong. posted Mar 15, 2011 at 6:44PM
|The color of water [sound recording] : a Black man's tribute to his white mother|
by McBride, James, 1957-
A fine biography. In audio, Andre Braugher and Lanie Kazan lift it to heavenly heights. It moves along briskly and takes you for a trip you won't soon forget. posted Mar 15, 2011 at 6:42PM
|Have space suit, will travel [electronic resource]
Heinlein's YA yarn is good for all ages. I listened to the production (done play-like with good readers) with Daniel Bostik at the helm. Recommended. posted Mar 15, 2011 at 6:38PM
