Music finds its way into every corner of our world. Whether it’s sounds written to soothe our four-legged friends, or a loud, politically charged punk song, music can change the way we feel and often has larger implications than we imagine. In the latest Audible Original series, Pitch, you’ll hear an incredible range of stories that illustrate why music is so central in our connections to each other, our history, and how we navigate the culture and the current moment.

this series was an eye-opening listen. its investigation into difference musics and the relation they have with popular culture and politics was illuminating and extremely interesting. One of the most enthralling was Leave me alone: not only the gender politics but also discovering Calypso Rose . The series was well-written and produced: essays in oral form. I hope there is a second series.

I love johnson's mysteries, and initially read the first few in print form. But Guidall takes Johnson's text and manages to convey the humour and melancholy of it almost just by breathing out the words, if that doesn't sound too fanciful. It's wonderful when such perfect matches of author and narrator happen, and it's a fairly rare thing. I bless them both for the pleasure they give me.

I selected this title because Grover Gardner was reading it and he is so good at reading books that have a slight humorous touch to them - and he didn't let me down. The story is light, and although bodies turn up all over the place, there isn't any violence especially. There are a few holes in the story, but Gardner's narration makes them less obvious. If you want a very very undemanding murder mystery with a love story both human and canine read with great good humour, then this may fit the bill.

I read this series years ago and enjoyed them - fast-paced, great adventure story with Ky a sympathetic heroine. Listening to them has been a somewhat different experience. Moon can write very well - viz her Deed of Paksanerrion trilogy - but listening to this series read by one of the worst narrators I've heard showed up books written in haste - way too many 'she said', 'he said'; and after hearing Ky reflect on her terrible secret for the umpteenth time, I found myself shouting at the stereo - it's a lazy or incompetent writer's substitute for character development. Still a great story but a bad narrator is like the misuse of grammar on the printed page, jarring and irritating, especially when she has a very peculiar notion of how some words should be pronounced. It is a shame. I have rated it low because of that.
