Oh boy, it occurs to me that I never tallied up all the audiobooks to which I spent last year listening.



Neil Gaiman, Neverwhere (BBC Radio Play, 2013): This doesn't quite count, because it was lotsa actors reading lines, but hey, whatever. James McAvoy did a greeeeat job with the protagonist. In the original novel, he's a rather limp Mary Sue kind of figure, but McAvoy injects him with a puckish charm and a greater degree of agency. Two thumbs up.

Jane Austen, Mansfield Park (BBC Radio Play, 2003): In contrast, apparently I listened to this entire adaptation, but I got zero memory of it.

Agatha Christie, Murder on the Orient Express (1934): Dan Stevens read this. It turns out that Dan Stevens is an excellent reader of books.

Agatha Christie, And Then There Were None (1939): Dan Stevens also read this. It was satisfyingly vicious.

Andy Weir, The Martian (2011): I listened to this as generic background sounds whenever I was doing housework. It served its purpose well.

Tina Fey, Bossypants (2011): Boop boop beep beep this was amusing.
