    Frank does a fine job. His breathy dramatic style is an acquired taste, but once acquired, it suits the material, I think.

    Ive listened to both versions of The Gunslinger, and Frank Muller's version is my favorite (revisions aside)
    Muller is my favorite narrator. George Guidal does a great job on all his narration (that Ive listened to); but, I really love Frank Mullet's style.
    His reading of The Prince of Tides is fantastic.

    I'm currently listening to The Dispatcher by John Scalzi and read by Zachary Quinto. Great story and Quinto's reading is excellent!

    I just started Rage by Stephen King. It is definitely an older recording but I kinda like the nostalgic feel of the sound.

    Also started Mortal Engines but Reeve

    I agree. George is great, but Frank was the best.

    I really enjoyed The Dispatcher as well, and it got me looking into Scalzi as I hadnt read (heard) anything of his.
    Im on the 2nd book of The Interdependency series. Im loving it too, even if Wil Wheaton isnt my favorite narrator sometimes.

    Its about a group of human outposts, ruled by an emperor of sorts and powerful trade guilds. The settlements are linked by a quirk in spacetime that is now shifting. Lots of political power plays and spaceflight. Scalzi writes some wickedly interesting charcters!

    So I just recently discovered Hoopla, which is a free app that allows you to stream media from your local library. It has a lot of stuff to read, watch, and listen to, but sadly not everything. I've always avoided audiobooks because I simply cannot concentrate enough and my mind invariably will wander. With podcasts it's different, since they;re usually more conversational and laid back. But I've been re-reading (listening) Richard J. Evans's Third Reich trilogy of non-fiction books on Nazi Germany. Almost done with the first volume, The Coming of the Third Reich. I'm treating this as a history podcast and it's mostly working. The mind still wanders so I have to use the skip back button.

    It's a great book series that I would recommend to anyone. And reading (or listening to this) again (I first read this about ten years ago), you can't help but make comparisons with the present. There are so many eerie similarities between what was happening in Germany in the 1920s and '30s and what we're seeing on the far right not only here in the US but all over the world. That's not to compare anyone to Nazis, but knowing history and what can cause the ultimate dictatorship to seize complete power is important, I believe. But indeed a lot of what we're currently seeing on the right has direct echos from the past.

    Everyone seemed to be raving about The Chalk Man so I added it to my list but haven't gotten to it yet. Curious of your thoughts once you finish.

    Just started listening to Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer. Really enjoying it so far.

    The book is so much more melodramatic compared to the movie. The movie wins the prize on this one.

    I think so. It's a good book, but if you haven't read it before don't expect an all out scary book. It's much quieter and more subtle. I think the audiobook is actually up on YouTube as well.
