    In The Poisoner's Handbook, Blum draws from highly original research to track the fascinating, perilous days when a pair of forensic scientists began their trailblazing chemical detective work, fighting to end an era when untraceable poisons offered an easy path to the perfect crime.

    Aaron - Audible says: "CSI eat your heart out"
    "Bad narrator, good book"
    Overall

    I have 200 titles in my audible library, and have never really cared enough about the narration to write a review until this title. I really enjoyed the subject matter, its quite compelling to learn that so many toxins were in everyday products with no regulations. However, the narrator was horrid, she mis-pronounces quite a few words, everyday English words that shouldn't pose a problem. She also has bad phrasing, hearing her pause in the wrong places was quite grating.

    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.

    Story

    I enjoyed this far more than I had anticipated. Scalzi writes great dialogue and clearly understands the sci-fi television industry. The story stands as a really fun parody of the 'redshirt' concept in sci-fi, but also is a honest story about people trying to find out what their lives really mean in the greater universe. Wil Wheaton is a wonderful narrator for Scalzi's material.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, doesn’t care much for witches. Still, he’s about to make nice with the local coven by signing a mutually beneficial nonaggression treaty when suddenly the witch population in modern-day Tempe, Arizona, quadruples overnight. And the new girls are not just bad, they’re badasses with a dark history on the German side of World War II. With a fallen angel feasting on local high school students, a horde of Bacchants blowing in from Vegas, and a dangerously sexy Celtic goddess of fire vying for his attention, Atticus is having trouble scheduling the witch hunt.

    Story

    This is an urban fantasy offering that doesn't take itself too seriously, yet has enough character development to get you invested in what happens to the protagonist. Quite a fun performance, especially the voice of the hound, Oberon. Could easily slide toward cheesy, but the narrator does a nice job keeping it on the entertaining side. I ended up listening to all three of these books, and will be thrilled to hear more when the next one is released.
