    In late 2003, in his column in Entertainment Weekly, Stephen King called The Memory of Running "the best novel you won't read this year." This glowing endorsement of the audiobook resulted in Ron McLarty receiving a $2 million two-book deal from Viking Penguin. Also, Warner Brothers has shelled out big bucks for the movie rights to The Memory of Running, for which McLarty will write the script.

    Overall

    If they were all like this, Audible would get my entire paycheck. The story had a good pace. Ron's voice got a little petulant at the end, but this well modulated reading had me searching for other performances by him. There were so many laugh-out-loud gags and heartwarming moments that I didn't mind the crude language and transparent plot. The interview at the end made me understand how much editing went into the crafting of such a fine audio. Bravo and encore!

    In this novel, set in Scotland in 1863, Bessy Buckley attempts to escape her past by taking a job as a maid in a big house outside of Edinburgh, where she works for the beautiful Arabella. Bessy is intrigued by her new employer, but puzzled by her increasingly strange requests.

    Overall

    What a riot. I'll be looking forward to more from this reader/author. They ought to make a movie or TV show out of this: it is sooooo funny, and the reading is the best audiobook performance I've heard so far. The character driven plot has enough detail and description to be vivid without dragging.
