This true crime book really stands out in several ways. There's barely a sense of whodunit and no lengthy trial. (I think there's more on the custody hearing after he's been convicted than his actual murder trial). The tension is all built around the back story and law enforcement's attempts at finding the body. That being said, it still draws you into the very strange and unsettling world of the moral and mental decline of Rick McFarland. Jane Cramer's narration is excellent. I really felt at times she was telling me about people she knew rather than a recounting of details amassed from newspapers and police reports and put in to a narrative. This is due to Diane Fanning's clearly empathetic writing paired with Jane's soft accents and almost Christopher Walken's like gait to some of Rick's words, particularly as he's spiraling downwards.
Jennifer O'Donnell's narration with her subtle inflections and emotive exposition. The dialog was nuanced and she knew how to get out of the way of the story.
The plunge into the frozen lake scene. I found myself holding my breath I was so immersed in the story and what the protagonist was going through.
Her characters are well voiced and she really captured the emotional tone. I found myself near tears several times.
It's in the top 5 for content alone. This had a lot more information than anything the press has put out on Bradley Manning and has extensive accounts from his friends and soldiers he worked with.
I liked the parallels drawn between the computer expertise Manning and Assange, coming up at different times in the evolution of computers and information systems. Reading about BBS's and the origins of hacking, then countering that with more recent developments in social media and hacker culture was really enthralling.
He gave a really good reading to the technical sections of the book, and wasn't doing overblown impersonations of the people involved.
Reading about Bradley's political aspirations in the context of his current trial and realizing he'll most likely never be able to pursue them.
Hearing the author reading it. He really knows how to deliver the funniest parts and is very heartfelt when talking about raising his kids.
There's an essay about his unsuccessful flirting with a banker which made me think of a Ricky Gervais type of character.
This is an infinitely better Father's Day gift than a tie.
The magical quality to foods seems a new twist on the genre. I almost get the sense that Teddy is a nutritionist based on how much focus he has on magical power being tied to diet.
His pacing is perfect for battle scenes. I really feel the excitement and don't want to bother flipping pages.
Take the first step of the journey to the Dark Lord...
JM Badger's narration made me want to break out my D24 and play some D&D!
Spank, spank and spunk.
It's erotic carnality and BDSM plot devices has a hint of Francis Ashe's Just Let Go.
Luke, since I'd very much like to get Sarah under my hands....
That most of the scene actually consisted of teasing and spanking play and only a bit of sex at the end.
More by Trina, please!!
Ginger has a stern quality to her voice that lent an edge to the description of a bleak post-apocalyptic setting.
Werewolf Sex Club by Stroker Chase, because they both feature bound ladies being ravished in the woods.
Yeah, it's a but longer than a quickie, but definitely a start to finish listen!
Ginger does a great job of channeling a cruel doctor having some kinky games with nurse Patricia. No surprises in the story, really, but still fun!
At first Clementine's voice seemed a peculiar choice for a young submissive, but as Emma's character develops it's clear she has things weighing on her from her aunt and other pressures that make the narration very appropriate. Her voice lifts well for Emma's dialog and gets deep and sexy for the passionate sex scenes. Clementine's cold, stern voicing of William is excellent as well. I'd definitely recommend it to friends. (Well, the ones into kinky tales)
Voyeur paranormal sex! Nothing compares to a good virgin sacrifice sacrificing her virginity. Kitty's narration transforms this from an audiobook into a smutty pulp comic for the mind.
I really enjoyed Kitty's moans and raspy voice as she calls out from pleasure induced by a preternatural beast having at her six ways to Sunday... maybe it was seven... think I'll give this one another listen...
