A Scanner Darkly, by Philip K. Dick – Audible review

I read the book of this years ago, and still have the copy of it on my small bookcase at home. Don't be unnerved that I have a small book case, I have tonnes of books, but they're in piles, on shelves, in boxes, so that one day, when I have a library room they … Continue reading A Scanner Darkly, by Philip K.

Dune, by Frank Herbert – Audible Review

Dune. If I can recall every memory from the film, it is limited to Sting in a funky still suit, and some chap riding a worm. The novel, when I've tried to read it in the past, didn't grip me straight away, and so I resigned from reading it. Instead, I listened to it. Audible, … Continue reading Dune, by Frank Herbert – Audible Review

As a compendium of short stories, each eerie and sinister, it was a fantastic listen, and it … Continue reading Audible – Necronomicon by H.P. Lovecraft

Audible – The Art of War: The Stratagy of Sun Tzu

So, with the Audible version only being a couple of quid, I thought 'why the hell not?' and … Continue reading Audible – The Art of War: The Stratagy of Sun Tzu

Audible – The Second World War by Anthony Beevor

I've not been posting much about my reading and audible recently, primarily because I've been listening to Anthony Beevor's Second World War narrated by Sean Barrett, charting different aspects of the war from start to finish. While this is superb and incredibly interesting, it's effing huge, so the audible files (yes, it's that long) are … Continue reading Audible – The Second World War by Anthony Beevor
