"Unabridged too far ..."
I had to give up on this after a bit over a quarter the way through (something I rarely do), it just requires too much concentration to keep up with and I don't think it suits the audiobook format. You need to be a bit of a scholar as well; large passages are in Latin, Italian etc. and there are many many references to history/literature which if you are not well versed in take away the enjoyment. The reader is excellent though and I would be tempted to have a go (though it won't be for a good few years) in traditional print.
Brilliant book that is complicated yet demands that you follow the plot purely because of the huge levels of intrigue. The narrator is the best I have ever heard as well, he transforms himself into scores of different characters.
I can imagine this would be great in print but with Alan at the helm, it's perfect in audio-format. First class stuff.
"Sorry about Dresden"
A very creative mix of sci-fi satire and historical fact, softly and effectively read by Ethan Hawke.
Campbell Scott does a great job of making this as scary as it should be. Thrilling stuff.
You can't really go wrong with content like this, sterling work by the narrator though.
"Spooky and effective"
Some of the dark tales are better than others but there's not a dud amongst them. Could probably have done with a few more thrown in.
