Dark Terrain, Dying for More -- James reviews Career of Evil

Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith

Career of Evil (Cormoran Strike, Book 3) [Downpour | Audible] by J. K. Rowling, writing as Robert Galbraith, read by Robert Glenister

Review by James Alexander:

The AudioBookaneers pick their favorite audiobooks of 2014

Well, it's (past) that time of year again: time for Dave and I to look back on a year in listening. We laughed, we cried, we cheered, we jeered, we stayed up well into the night for these audiobooks. It seems like every year calls for a slight wrinkle in presentation, but this year it's a familiar one: our audiobooks of the year, runners up in both new audiobooks of new books and new audiobooks of previously published books, and our favorite "new to us" listens of the year. (And, mostly because it helps

Top 25 most-anticipated books of June 2014

Posted on 2014-06-05 at 18:40 by Sam

Everyone has their own lists, but here’s ours: what we're most looking forward to this month, in chronological order of release, with audiobook information if we know about it. (I tried holding the list to 10 as I managed for last month's preview, but after a second pass cutting as much as I was close to happy with, I was still in the 30s. Trimming further to 25 was hard enough!)

Release week... Friday? Ben Aaronovitch, Greg Bear, Philip Pullman, Mike Mignola, and J.K. Rowling

Posted on 2012-09-28 at 21:2 by Sam

It feels like I just wrapped up a huge release week post two days ago, because I did. But so much has already come out since Wednesday that, well, I’d better post now because next week should have a huge list of new audiobooks as well. So here’s an “interlude” release week post.

Leading the list is the Peter Grant series by Ben Aaronovitch, all narrated by Kobna Holdbrook-Smith for Tantor Audio. The three books, Midnight Riot: Peter Grant, Book 1, Moon Over Soho: Peter Grant, Book 2, and Whispers Under
