I found the journal at work. Well, I don't know if you'd call it work, but that's where I found it. It's the lost journal of Nikola Tesla, one of the greatest inventors and visionaries ever. Before he died in 1943, he kept a notebook filled with spectacular claims and outrageous plans.

A delightful listen in the vein of John Dies at the End except more evenly paced. I am eagerly awaiting the next book.

In every generation, certain writers are chosen to be protectors of The Legendarium, a metaphysical library that exists at the nexus of the multiverse. Inside this library are doorways that lead to every world ever created in literature. There are forces of evil constantly at work to destroy the library and send the world back into an age of darkness. Now, in a time of growing illiteracy, two heroes are chosen to defend The Legendarium.

Unlike books by Jasper Fforde this book is too obsessed with what writers think about the publishing process. For the most part it a good book but it sacrifices plot for the purpose of critiquing the publishing industry and defending the self publishing process. Buy only if on sale.

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.

I have listened to this book repeatedly. It is my "background music" book of choice. Fascinating, well researched book. Excellent narrator - even soothing making the more gruesome aspects of the forensic science tolerable.

Witness the epic battle of the cyclops! Visit the endangered dragon preserve! Please, no slaying. Solve the mystery of The Mystery Cottage, if you dare! Buy some knickknacks from The Fates! They might come in handy later. On a road trip across an enchanted America, Helen and Troy will discover all this and more. If the curse placed upon them by an ancient god doesn't kill them or the pack of reluctant orc assassins don't catch up to them, Helen and Troy might reach the end their journey in one piece, where they might just end up destroying the world.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Humorous romp with a enough human compassion to keep it grounded in the fantasy world.

Have you listened to any of Khristine Hvam’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Excellent narrator.
