    The idyll of Blandings Castle is about to be disturbed, for the Hon. Freddie Threepwood is poised to make his debut as a jewel thief. Freddie, however, is not alone: Blandings is simply brimming with criminals and impostors all intent on stealing Aunt Constance's 20,000 pound diamond necklace. It is left to the debonair Psmith, with his usual aplomb, to unscramble the passion, problems, and identities, of one and all.

    Where does Leave it to Psmith rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Psmith is the best of Wodehouse's characters--better even than Bertie & Jeeves--and Jonathan Cecil is the king of Wodehouse narrators.

    Intrepid literary detective Thursday Next is back in the second installment of Jasper Fforde's one-of-a-kind series. The inventive, exuberant, and totally original literary fun that began with The Eyre Affair continues with Jasper Fforde’s magnificent second adventure starring the resourceful, fearless literary sleuth Thursday Next.

    I heart the Jasper Ffordeverse--it's engaging, full of TERRIBLE jokes, suspenseful, creative. And Emily Gray is Thursday.

  • Fuzzy Nation

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 18 mins)

    In John Scalzi's re-imagining of H. Beam Piper's 1962 sci-fi classic Little Fuzzy, written with the full cooperation of the Piper Estate, Jack Holloway works alone for reasons he doesnt care to talk about. Hundreds of miles from ZaraCorps headquarters on planet, 178 light-years from the corporations headquarters on Earth, Jack is content as an independent contractor, prospecting and surveying at his own pace. As for his past, thats not up for discussion.

    Samuel Montgomery-Blinn says: "Short, sweet, and satisfying storytelling."
    "Mediocre narration, predictable story, bald writin"

    Would you try another book from John Scalzi and/or Wil Wheaton and John Scalzi (Introduction) ?

    I've really enjoyed every other Scalzi I've read, but this one was irritatingly predictable as well as WAY overburdened with exposition. Wheaton's narration is obstructively mediocre. (Yes I know as a tribe we nerds have decided to love Wheaton as an apology for hating him as Wesley Crusher with irrational fervor--but he's still not a very good narrator. He has two voices: regular and look-this-character-is-a-d!ck.)

    So disappointed!
