Just an earthbound misfit, I

Dahlia finishes all her sentences with “I”. Not exactly sure what she’s doing there. An example from today:

“I wannnn dinaaaa an I, Shtorky, I”

Don’t ask me what it means… But it’s cute 😉

The Testament

Narrarator : Frank Muller (again!). Author : John Grisham. I’ve never read any other Grisham, but I really enjoyed this one. Muller does a great job cycling between all the voices, and he nails the alcoholic Nate O’Riley superbly. This was a very enjoyable listen. (My rating 8/10).

The Marching Season

Narrarated by Frank Muller. Written by Daniel Silva. Technically this is part 2 of a GREAT two parter, but Frank didn’t narrarate the first book – The Mark of the Assassin. There is a copy of it (MotA) at Amazon.com http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0553479377/103-3943784-6100637?v=glance&n=283155 but I can’t vouch for the audiobook quality. I CAN vouch for the audiobook quality of this one. Frank does an amazing job with all the accents. Truly a joy. I’d recommend reading MotA, then listening to this. (My rating 9/10)

Black Lightning

By John Saul. Narrated by Richard Ferrone. I have a thing for good narrarators – Richard Ferrone is one of those that I’ve only heard once but I think he did a great job. As far as the book goes – it was quite entertaining but the ending was a little… too much Hollywood for me. Still one of the better ones. (My rating 7.5/10).

Black Sunday

Althought I haven’t heard this one in a while… It’s one of my favorites. Frank Muller is the narrator. The book is by Thomas Harris of Silence of the Lambs fame. This is his first major book that he released in the early 70s. Frank Muller narrarates this book very well. Small factoid, the main female terrorist character of the book – Dahlia Illiad(sp) – is who we named Dahlia after. I highly recommend this book. (My rating 9/10)
