    Stephanie Cole, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Roger Allam star in the first series of the hit sitcom about the tiny charter airline for whom no job is too small, but many, many jobs are too difficult.

    Wonderfully written and fabulously performed. Cabin Pressure is hilarious, touching, and always great. S3 is just as strong as the previous series, and "St. Petersburg" was a fantastic series end.

    Nerds: Once a tormented subrace of humans... Now captains of industry! You don’t have to be a stereotypical geekwad to appreciate the tenets of Nerdism and to make your innate talents for overanalysis and hyper-self-awareness work for you instead of against you. Join Nerd superstar Chris Hardwick as he offers his fellow “creative-obsessives” the crucial information needed to come out on top in the current Nerd uprising. Success is the most satisfying - and legal - form of vengeance there is. And you can achieve it when you follow the Nerdist Way,

    This is funny and enjoyable just as a semi-memoir of Hardwick, but also really useful as a self-help guide geared toward nerdy-minded people. The only part I didn't like was the workout guide section toward the middle - probably more useful (and/or easier to skip over) in physical book format, but annoying in the audiobook. Otherwise, highly recommended.

    Ensign Andrew Dahl has just been assigned to the Universal Union Capital Ship Intrepid, flagship of the Universal Union since the year 2456. Life couldn’t be better…until Andrew begins to pick up on the facts that (1) every Away Mission involves some kind of lethal confrontation with alien forces; (2) the ship’s captain, its chief science officer, and the handsome Lieutenant Kerensky always survive these confrontations; and (3) at least one low-ranked crew member is, sadly, always killed.

    There were several small things that annoyed me about this audiobook, including the fact that the phrase "[Character] said," appeared what felt like thousands of times, but overall I really loved both the story and WW's performance. I especially liked all the tangential epilogues, so listen all the way until the end!

    Miles Halter is fascinated by famous last words - and tired of his safe life at home. He leaves for boarding school to seek what the dying poet Francois Rabelais called the "Great Perhaps." Much awaits Miles at Culver Creek, including Alaska Young. Clever, funny, screwed-up, and dead sexy, Alaska will pull Miles into her labyrinth and catapult him into the Great Perhaps.

    Looking for Alaska brilliantly chronicles the indelible impact one life can have on another.

    Being an enthusiastic newcomer to Nerdfighteria and a huge lover of YA lit, I expected to really love this book. It didn't live up to my expectations. The story was okay, but just didn't move me in the way I think it intended to. The moral lessons and philosophical epiphanies felt contrived and overindulgent. I didn't connect with the main character very much, but I'm not sure whether this was because of the unrealistic way he was written, or the way the narrator emphasized his speech, which I did not care for at all.

    A reluctant voyager crossing the Pacific in 1850; a disinherited composer blagging a precarious livelihood in between-the-wars Belgium; a high-minded journalist in Governor Reagan's California; a vanity publisher fleeing his gangland creditors; a genetically modified "dinery server" on death-row; and Zachry, a young Pacific Islander witnessing the nightfall of science and civilisation: the narrators of Cloud Atlas hear each other's echoes down the corridor of history.

    One of my favorite recent reads/listens. The story is fantastically absorbing, and the performance is truly stellar.

  • World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War

    The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched first-hand experiences of the survivors from those apocalyptic years, traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of 30 million souls, to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet.

    The audio performance really makes this story come alive. It's not as action-heavy as most zombie stories, but it's gripping nonetheless.
