    Story
    (251)

    Dirk Gently has an unshakeable belief in the interconnectedness of all things, but his Holistic Detective Agency mainly succeeds in tracking down missing cats for old ladies. Then Dirk stumbles upon an old friend behaving bizarrely - and he's drawn into a four-billion-year-old mystery that must be solved if the human race is to avoid immediate extinction.

    I am a Douglas Adams fan, and enjoy it when his work is brought back to life. Listening to Billy Boyd play Richard is a wonderful bonus.

    My hope is that someday there will also be an unabridged version of the original book.

    This book would be perfect if one could see the art while listening to the author read the book.

  • Stephanie Pearl-McPhee Casts Off: The Yarn Harlot's Guide to the Land of Knitting

    • UNABRIDGED (4 hrs and 25 mins)

    Story
    (102)

    Using a travel guide format, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee acts as tour guide extraordinaire, describing and critiquing every aspect of this territory she knows so well: its people (young and old, male and female), familiar phrases ("purl this, darn that"), strange beliefs, currency (skein trading), etiquette, holidays (any sale day at the local yarn shop), and customs. She notes important dates in knitting history and celebrates unsung knitting heroes.

    Emily says: "a fun read"
    "Knitters are fortunate to have her as their voice."

    Where does Stephanie Pearl-McPhee Casts Off rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 10%


    What about Stephanie Pearl-McPhee’s performance did you like?

    I can hear her delight with the magic that is knitting, and that makes me smile.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    She puts into words what many knitters feel but cannot express in a way others might understand.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope she continues to record her books. I have all her printed books but only two audiobooks.
