I loved this one so much, I plan to get the print version so I can refer back to it. I am not a Stephen King fan, I was terrorized by Cujo in the 80s and have avoided him ever since but a good friend encouraged me to try him and that this would be a ...more

Did the Overdrive audiobook, and I listened to it while recovering from an illness -- when I couldn't sleep, while needing distraction from pain, while walking, walking, walking for recovery, listening lying down when I was too tired to hold a physic ...more
Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan
"I do not usually (ever?!)read fantasy fiction. When it's not being fantasy-like, the book is nerdy, techy! Despite Mr. Penumbra not being my usual type of read I found this book delightful, fun and hopeful! I listened to it and my only complaint i..." Read more of this review »

Audible version. Loved this, made me think, made me consider, ponder, laugh, startle with surprise, rewind to reconsider -- this was a journey that was not only a delight but an especial gift to be on. Jim Broadbent is a superb reader, I think he cou ...more

An audio book for me, with the author doing the reading, always an interesting direction, I think, but the author was a solid B performer (that's a 2012 inflated B, by the way). While you couldn't tear me away from this book, and I kept quoting passa ...more
