This was a boring and unimaginative story that failed to make good use of its setting (the American Civil War) or of the relationship between the Doctor and Amy. I thought it was unimaginative and boring. Matt Smith's narration is the only thing that saved it for me.
This quick listen was an intriguing story. It made a train ride between Albany and New York City fly by.
I patiently waited for Margaret Atwood's final installment in the MaddAddam trilogy. It was compelling. It wrapped up the story without feeling like it was contrived, wrapped up with a bow just to get the story over. I highly recommend the entire trilogy, especially for those willing to listen to it. The various narrators are superb.
Dan Stevens' narration of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein was superb. I'm actually kind of glad that I hadn't read it before listening to the audiobook because this was definitely the way to experience Frankenstein for the first time.
It's good to know that I can still get new Who with the Ponds via audiobook. It's an added bonus when Arthur Darvill, a la Rory Williams, reads the adventure. He knows the characters so well; he can really make them come alive.
Anne Hathaway's performance of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was simply delightful. Her melodic tone and range of voices for the various characters made the words come alive in a way that reading the text to yourself can't. I found it to be a refreshing way to revisit an old favorite.
