I love to read, but I'm a mom, wife, student, and employee. Who has time? I do. In the car, with audiobooks

  • Torchwood: The Exodus Code

    It starts with a series of unexplained events. Earth tremors across the globe. Women being driven insane by their heightened and scrambled senses. And the world is starting to notice - the number one Twitter trend is #realfemmefatales. Governments and scientists are bewildered and silent. The world needs Torchwood, but there's not much of Torchwood left.

    Story

    I don't know if John Barrowman can write, but with the help of his sister, Carole Barrowman, he put together a really fun Torchwood-themed novel. The performance was okay - the narrator can even do American accents without making all American characters sound like they're from Texas. But Jack's and Gwen's voices were off considerably; it might have been better to use the original actors.

    John Barrowman, Eve Myles and Gareth David-Lloyd star in three Torchwood radio adventures from the Lost Files, each set before the TV story Children of Earth. The Devil and Miss Carew sees Gwen and Rhys involved in a nursing home mystery. Submission finds the Torchwood team heading for the bottom of the sea – the Mariana Trench – after they intercept a distress call. The House of the Dead sees a special séance being held at the most haunted pub in Wales.

    This one made me weep (which the show has done a couple times, but the books never have before). Absolutely lovely job of it.

    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.

    Story

    If anyone could manage the wacky names and weirdnes that is the Hitchhiker's universe, Stephen Fry is definitely it. The next book uses Martin Freeman as the narrator and I'm sure I'll love that one too

  • Pawn of Prophecy: The Belgariad, Book 1

    Story

    Long ago, so the Storyteller claimed, the evil god Torak sought dominion and drove men and Gods to war. But Belgrath the Sorcerer led men to reclaim the Orb that protected the West. So long as it lay at Riva, the prophecy went, men would be safe. That was only a story, and Garion did not believe in magic dooms, even though the man without a shadow had haunted him for years.

    Story

    This story - the entire series really - is the literary equivalent of comfort food for me, and so I had a bit of trepidation about the audio book. What if it didn't seem *right* to me?

    But it does.

    Oh, a few of the names are pronounced differently than I hear them in my head. But overall it's, well... comfort food.
