This is a strange story. It's heavily steeped in the mythology of the Doctor Who series, especially the classic series, and casual Doctor Who fans might not understand everything going on. On the other hand, those that are very knowledgable about the Doctor Who mythos might be put off by the heavy changes made to the background of the universe.
But it has Stephen Fry as a Time Lord, and that pretty much wipes away any concerns about this drama.
In all honesty, it has some amazing acting performances, and the story is just a lot of fun from start to finish. I highly recommend it to Doctor Who fans.
Aside from a few awkward perspective transitions (which the book later attempts to clarify), this is a fantastic addition to the Laundry Files series, as well as a sharp parody of the James Bond formula.
A precursor to the Wodehousian style as well as the screwball comedy, this production by the LA Theatreworks is wonderful.
I love Dune, and I've read it several times (although around Book II it always feels like a slog). The narrator is great in this version, but the character as supposed to be voiced by other actors. However, for some reason, the characters are sometimes voiced by actors and sometimes performed by the narrator. Sometimes, this changes in the middle of a scene. I actually generally prefer the narrator's performances, but it's sometimes hard to get a sense of who is speaking when things change all the time. An mildly irritating mar on an otherwise enjoyable audiobook.
I have loved the Dresden Files books for a decade. Listening to James Marsters sounds much like I always imagined Harry Dresden sounding like, and his performance makes a book I love even more enjoyable.
