    The TARDIS is lost in battle on a distant planet. When the doctor sets off in pursuit, Donna is left behind, and finds herself accepting a commission in the Pioneer Corps. Something is transforming soldiers into monstrous beetles, and she could be the next victim.

    Overall

    I really love this story. It's cute and a little bit weird. Not as clever as the average Dr. Who script, but not terrible. David Tennant is one of the best audiobook readers I've ever heard. The way he swaps between accents is seamless, and his Donna Noble voice is spot-on, and hilarious. The reading is entertaining enough for the price. I don't usually use my credit on short audiobooks, but I've listened to this twice, and I really enjoyed it.

    Six years after four family members died of arsenic poisoning, the three remaining Blackwoods—elder, agoraphobic sister Constance; wheelchair-bound Uncle Julian; and 18-year-old Mary Katherine, or, Merricat—live together in pleasant isolation. Merricat has developed an idiosyncratic system of rules and protective magic to guard the estate against intrusions from hostile villagers. But one day a stranger arrives—cousin Charles, with his eye on the Blackwood fortune.

    Story

    The narrator is totally creepy, and the story is like the Addams Family for grownups. I absolutely loved it. I mean, the "mystery" part is not so much a mystery. I won't spoil it for anyone, but I figured it out relatively quickly, but there was something in the narrative that sort of makes me think you're supposed to. The mystery isn't really the point.

    I love this book, and can see myself listening to it over and over.

    In this revolutionary look at the brain, best-selling author, psychiatrist, and psychoanalyst Norman Doidge, M.D., introduces both the brilliant scientists championing this new science of neuroplasticity and the astonishing progress of the people whose lives they've transformed.

    Introducing principles we can all use, as well as a riveting collection of case histories, The Brain That Changes Itself has "implications for all human beings, not to mention human culture, human learning and human history."

    Story

    This book is really interesting, and the narrator sounds interested in the subject, which is great, but the sound quality is just horrible. I have to have the sound up as loud as it goes to be able to enjoy it.
