    Dom Joly sets off round the world again, but this time he's not looking to holiday in a danger zone - he's monster hunting. In Scary Monsters and Super Creeps he heads to six completely different destinations to investigate local monster sightings.

    What did you love best about Scary Monsters and Supercreeps?

    Dom Jolly tells a funny story but with context and details that draw you in. I don't agree with him politically or in matters of religion but he doesn't bring those viewpoints in often enough to make the book difficult to listen to. He does a great job reading the book, making you feel as though he is telling you a story instead of reading it. This is the second book I read by him (dark tourist being the first - another great read) and I hope he puts out more.

    Strange and Obscure Stories of the Civil War is an entertaining look at the Civil War stories that don’t get told, and the misadventures you haven’t read about in history books. Share in all the humorous and strange events that took place behind the scenes of some of the most famous Civil War moments.

    Any additional comments?

    When I hear "Civil War" I generally begin to find a nice place to rest my head as I'll soon be asleep. So why did I get an audio book on the Civil War then? Because I like different and strange true stories (even about the Civil War). Tim Rowland delivered these stories and Fred Sanders did a great job of telling them. I enjoyed the format, the storytelling, and the divergence from normal Civil War recounts. I was able to form a new view of 19th Century life and some of the lesser characters that made the period far more interesting.
