Audiobook recommendation: The Art of War narrated by Aidan Gillen.

To me The Art of War is a must in any library, I have several E-book versions and three Audiobooks (narrated by different people, two in English and one in Spanish).

This month I went out to walk by the city and decided to listen to the version narrated by Aidan Gillen and it didn’t disappointed me.

The length of this audiobook is just over an hour, which makes if perfect to listen during commute or while at the gym.

Aidan Gillen’s voice is perfect for this kind of book and, while I was listening I could see him in my mind  as “Littlefinger” from Game of Thrones while imparting this pearls of wisdom (I’m a Game of Thrones fan and I loved it).

I haven’t listen to the other audiobook versions yet, but I think it will me hard to top this one.

A Shade Of Blood by Bella Forrest Audiobook and Zachary Webber as a Narrator.

I posted my review of the Kindle edition of A Shade Of Blood in 2013 in this Blog but it wasn’t until years later that I bought the audiobook and it was this week when I finally started listening to it (using my Amazon Echo Dot while I was doing things around my apartment).

It was nice to go back to the story of Derek and Sofia and I’m planning on resume reading the A Shade of Vampire Series.

It was enjoyable listening to this Audiobook and I especially liked the chapters narrated by males, my favorites being the ones in Derek’s POV.

The choice in narrator for Derek Novak was spot on and it made me look for more books narrated by him (I truly loved his taking on the character and his voice, and I think he makes a perfect Derek). Searching in Audible I found out his name is Zachary Webber, and he’s also Christian Grey in the Audiobook version of Grey and Darker (Fifty Shades of Grey and Fifty Shades Darker as Told by Christian) and a narrator in Maybe Someday and November 9 by Colleen Hoover, among other books (I have these other four Audiobooks in my Audible library and I plan on listening to them this year).

If you like Fantasy, YA and Paranormal Romance books the A Shade of Vampire series is a good option for you to explore.

 

 

Audiobook Review.- Portlandia Travelogue: The Brussels to Antwerp Express

Portlandia Travelogue

 

Rating: 5 of 5.

One of my Favorite Quotes: “Two weeks, I answered in a vaguely seductive but official tone.”

Comments: Fred Armisen as Candace is one of my favorite characters from Portlandia and I was really excited to find this Audiobook.

I love how Candace describes everything in great detail (people, herself..) and how she keeps true to her demanding and kind of bossy attitude.

Would I recommend it?: Yes (specially if you are a Portlandia’s fan). I would definitely enjoy listening to more Audiobooks like this one.
