A Trip to the Hardware Store & Other Calamities: Quirky Essays for Quirky People

Written by: Barbara Venkataraman

Narrated by: Carrie Lee Martz

Length: 55 mins

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date: 02-26-14

Publisher: Barbara Markley

I was hesitant to dedicate a whole post reviewing this title because at 55 minutes long it’s weird to even call it an audiobook, considering most podcasts these days are longer. However, I’m pleased to do so because some people aren’t into podcasts and this format may be of interest to them. Have an hour to kill while driving or doing chores? This light and humourus read will provide you with family friendly entertainment in the form of short essays about everyday life events. Doesn’t sound like much but most of them are quite relatable and surprisingly funny. Read the rest of this entry

Dead Drunk: Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse

Written by: Richard Johnson

Narrated by: Neil Hellegers

Length: 6 hrs and 4 mins

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date: 11-14-13

Publisher: Richard D. Johnson

Apparently, I’m on a zombie streak this month with yet another zombie apocalypse audiobook. Dead Drunk seemed to be a promising zombie novel that doesn’t take itself too seriously which is very refreshing considering the generally morbid and depressing nature of the post-apocalyptic genre. Johnson’s prose flowed very well which made the audiobook listening experience quite enjoyable. The character differentiation was done quite clearly by Neil Hellegers with a few noteworthy performances like the old redneck Uncle Russ, for example. Gotta have a good hillbilly character in a zombie novel! Read the rest of this entry

Braineater Jones

Written by: Stephen Kozeniewski

Narrated by: Steve Rimpici

Length: 5 hrs and 55 mins

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date: 03-06-14

Publisher: Red Adept Publishing, LLC

I love zombies. Well, stories about zombies that is… I’ve probably watched every zombie/post-apocalyptic movie and series in existence plus the most noteworthy books in the genre (I should probably do a guide listing the best zombie books at some point) but when a new one comes out I just can’t say no! For Braineater Jones I’m glad I didn’t because it was a hell of a lot of fun! It’s definitely not your typical survival story where a group of people is trying to battle the endless hordes of undead. That’s OK though, as there are plenty of other books that are like that. Read the rest of this entry
