    Aiken makes use of the hallmark of Gothic fiction—the haunted house—in this story of three authors whose lives become inextricably tied to Lamb House, a Georgian mansion situated in the town of East Sussex, England: Toby Thomas, who lived there in the 18th century; followed by Henry James, who discovered Toby’s mysterious diary a century later; and ending with E.F. Benson, who struggled to put the agitated ghosts of Toby and Henry James to rest.

    Was The Haunting of Lamb House worth the listening time?

    It's very rare that I give up on a book, whether I'm reading it or listening to it, but I just couldn't make it past the first third of this story. The narrator was fine, but the story just never grabbed me and the overall experience was one I found tedious. In the end, I had too many other books waiting to be listened to for me to spend any more time on this one.

    Seconds before the Earth is demolished to make way for a galactic freeway, Arthur Dent is plucked off the planet by his friend Ford Prefect, a researcher for the revised edition of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy who, for the last 15 years, has been posing as an out-of-work actor.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If, like me, you grew up reading (and loving) Adams' novels, you'll be pleased with this audio version. Stephen Fry does a fantastic job bringing the characters to life. Highly recommend.

    A call from a distraught wife, and another from Lt Murphy of the Chicago PD Special Investigation Unit makes Harry believe things are looking up, but they are about to get worse, much worse. Someone is harnessing immense supernatural forces to commit a series of grisly murders. Someone has violated the first law of magic: Thou Shalt Not Kill. Tracking that someone takes Harry into the dangerous underbelly of Chicago, from mobsters.

    Where does Storm Front rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    They aren't going to change your life, but the Dresden Files are entertaining books that certainly make long car trips, working out, cleaning, etc, a lot more enjoyable. James Marsters does a very good job bringing the characters to life, and overall I really enjoyed his narration. It's not quite as flawless as other narrators, but his voice has a very melodic quality that makes it easy to listen to for extended periods.
