Audio Books

Tonight I watched Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle. It’s the silliest movie I’ve seen in a long time, possibly ever. To recover I had to watch a bit of English drama, The Forsyte Saga.

In other news, I’m absolutely obsessed with listening to digital audio books on Ce’Nedra (my iPod). I started listening to audio books driving to Greeley for work. However, the library is still transitioning from cassettes to CDs so I didn’t always have a terribly good selection to choose from. The downloadable audio books at Boulder and Denver have a much better variety. Also, if I want to continue listening to the book once I get home, I just carry my iPod into the house and keep listening instead of transferring the CD to another player and trying to find my place again. I can’t wait until Weld finalizes their subscription for digital audio books. I’m getting a little giddy with so many choices :-)

Currently I’m listening to an excellent rendition of the book Deathstalker by Simon R. Green. The audio version was published by Defiance Audio and appears to have split the first book in the series into five “episodes.” Deathstalker is space opera set in the distant future. There’s very little tech but quite a bit of action and imperial intrigue. Occasionally the story gets a bit too gory and machiavellian for me but overall I’ve enjoyed listening to it immensely.
