Actually I’ve attempted to get into a Jack Reacher novel by Lee Child like 3 times in the last week, probably 10 pages in. Not great.

I haven't read a lot of King, but I listened to Pet Semetary and Michael C. Hall did a great job.

Maybe check out The Institute.


I finished The Stand, supplemented heavily by the audio book. The slightly different voice inflections the reader used for different characters was very helpful.

It was a great book. Right up my ally with the apocalyptic stuff mixed with good vs bad morality thing.

I enjoy reading and listening to audio books. I would agree that the different voices the actors use help greatly for comprehension. I can get distracted while reading and after two pages realize I have no idea what I just read.

I am plodding along with the Stand on Kindle right now. About 30% through. It's a bit harder to follow because it seems each chapter goes between a wide array of characters. So far, the central plot hasn't moved forward much and I am beginning to lose track of which characters are the main ones. And which ones have died off. Maybe I should audio for the different voices. I agree, it really helps.

Syl is one of my favorite characters from any book ever. Kaladin's story arch can get a bit long winded at times but it's worth it.
Im a third through the first, so far i enjoys kaladins story. And trying to piece together the happenings with Dalinar have been fun.

Gotta admit stormlight is an absolute slog for me. All of my friends are reading it so I’ll hang. It’s not bad but I’ve been reading the 4th one for like a year.

Currently reading Viral Justice by Ruha Benjamin. Book jacket calls it “part memoir, part manifesto” and the author explores the intersectionality of racism, the current pandemic, police violence, medical/healthcare inequity, segregation, and more. Fascinating read.

How many are out now? I read the first one like a decade or more ago, after it came out.

I listened to "A Heart That Works" by Rob Delaney, the guy from the show "Catastrophe" about his toddler son dying of a brain tumor. It's fairly short and he reads the audio book himself. It was quite good.
