Ok, so I now listen to a bunch of audio books, ok? If you promise not to tell my boss, I'll let you know that I can listen to audio books at work without screwing up what i'm working on. Doctor Who heavy this month!
Doctor Who: The Runaway Train by Oli Smith: an 11 and Amy adventure. This one takes place in the old west and the Doctor and Amy get a group of outlaws together to locate an alien bomb that is going to instantly change Earth's environment to match what the aliens need to live. Got to listen to various versions of Matt Smith's American accent, all drawly and deep. His "Amy" accent is not that great though. Fun story, too short. a 5.
Doctor Who: Dead Air by James Goss: rather creepy 10 story. Chronologically, this story is supposed to be right before the episode "The End of Time". It is a little different in that the Doctor speaks directly to the listener. He's recording a tape, telling his story of how he followed a creature called the Hush to a floating pirate radio station off the coast of 1960's Britain. There are a lot of little clues dropped about Time Lords and the War that reward the listener. Really interesting and a 6.
Doctor Who: The Wheel of Ice by Stephen Baxter: a 2 story! and a proper book; the book was 8 tracks long. It takes place in the future around the moons of Saturn. There's an evil corporation, a relic of a long dead alien race, a sentient robot, blue creatures, and Jamie and Zoe. Really good, a 7.
The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. This is a reread for me but it has probably been close to 20 years since I last read it. I had remembered the gist but forgotten some of the particulars. A very sweet story, a 7.
and an old favorite...
The Two Towers by J. R. R. Tolkien: yes, I know I listen to these pretty much every 2 years or so. 7
