audio books

The Remains of the Day by Kashuo Ishiguro- giving up on Ishiguro i think.  He seems to specialize in unreliable narrators and sloooooooooow plots.  I kept wondering if the narrator, a butler, has Asperger's or was just an Oblivious Proper Englishman. a 4.

The Queen's Fool by Phillipa Gregory. interesting but a bit repetitive.  Like the main character but didn't like her choices at the end of the book.  I like Gregory's style in general though. a 5.


after having a crappy day at work, I downloaded two audiobooks to listen to while working

Doctor Who: The Last Voyage by Dan Abnett, read by David Tennant: an in-between or after companions story. strange things are afoot on the maiden voyage of a new spaceship!  a 5.

Doctor Who: The Resurrection Casket by Justin Richards, read by David Tennant: a Rose story. it was alright but not memorable.  I actually forgot I had finished it and went back to replay it.  it did have Space Pirates!  a 5.

anybody else suuuuuuuuper excited about the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Episode?  I've got tickets to go see it in a movie theater the Monday after it airs!

  1. I need to pick up that Abnett book. I read his The Silent Stars Go By earlier this year (should have saved it for now given its seasonal bent) and really liked it. Thought he captured Matt Smith's Doctor and Amy and Rory perfectly.

  2. Honestly...the books aren't amazing, David Tennant's narration is though. They are enjoyable. I'll have to try The Silent Stars Go By!
