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.

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.

 

Listening Books – Audiobooks Recommendations: Loving Summer, Fallen Too Far and Oh The Places You’ll Go!

This year I’ve been buying several Audiobooks on Audible (most of the time taking advantage of the special price because I had previously purchased the Kindle version of the books) and with this I can use the feature of Whispersync for Voice that is available when you own both formats (Kindle and Audible Audiobook).

In this post I want to share with you some thoughts about the last three Audiobooks I have listened:

 

Loving Summer

Loving Summer by Kailin Gow

I read this book last December and I recently bought the Audiobook. This is the first book in the Series and also my favorite, is a story about growing up, about love, family and friendship that’s mainly focused in the relationship between a young girl named Summer, the Donovans (Rachel, Nat and Drew), and the times they spent together at Sookie’s Beach House (she’s Summer’s aunt). Even when Summer is not my favorite character (my favorites are the Donovan brothers), this a good book that I really liked.

And what about the Audiobook? I truly enjoyed it, in my opinion the narrator was a nice choice for this book and she delivers the emotions that the characters are feeling (I specially liked when she does Summer’s character).

So far three books from the Series had been released (and I had read them all): Loving Summer, Falling for Summer and Perfect Summer, but the only one with an Audible Version available is Loving Summer (I’m hoping they release soon the Audiobook of Falling for Summer, the continuation to the story and with the POV of the Donovan Brothers).

With a length of around 4 hours this Audiobook was my perfect companion during a Summer afternoon, it kept me entertained in the Fitness Center (I took with me my Ipod Touch and listened the first chapters in the Audible App) and back at home.

As I had previously purchased the Kindle Version of this Book (for around $2.99 USD), the Audiobook in Audible costed me only $1.99 USD (yeii!).

Fallen too Far

Fallen too Far by Abbi Glines

I read Fallen Too Far for the first time last January and I loved Abbi Glines’s writing, I became a Fan of the Series and when I found out that Audible Version had been released I bought it without hesitation and this week I listened to it.

My reaction to this Audiobook? It kept me really entertained and as soon as I finished it I couldn’t help to re-read Never Too Far and Forever Too Far (Book 2 and 3 from the Series).

Like with Loving Summer, due to the fact that I had previously bought the Kindle Version, I paid only $1.99 USD for the Audiobook in Audible) and its length is 6 hours 34 min.

Oh the places

Oh the Places you’ll Go! by Dr. Seuss.

My last Audiobook recommendation is this Children’s book by Dr. Seuss (when I bought it was an incredible deal in Audible), this a short story (7 min. length).

I don’t have any kids but as an adult I still enjoyed listening this Audiobook, the narration by John Lithgow is just amazing (his voice is perfect for the story).

Thanks for reading me and enjoy your Sunday you all!
