The physics of sound as explained in this popular science audiobook was sometimes a bit beyond my grasp and narrator Angelina Rocca‘s voice made feel drowsy, yet I enjoyed this overall. The good parts are great! Fascinating stuff about how noise affects underwater life and why should care about that. #CanadianAuthor

Panpan

I‘ve been hovering between so-so and pan, and I‘m coming down on the pan. I should have known, with it billed as things I don‘t like (thriller/horror/mystery) but I‘ve liked KA‘s other books…but no. It wasn‘t a solid story any way you slice it, and it feeds one of my pert peeves 👆🏼 when the author says someone says something without us actually getting the words. Deliberate obfuscation bugs me. I‘m irritated I spent good reading time on this.

TheBookHippie I swear I‘m bailing more lately for these types of reasons. 1w

Clare-Dragonfly I haaaaate that. The only way it makes sense is if the character is recounting events that the reader has already been witness to. Doesn‘t sound like that‘s the case here! (edited) 1w

Martha is devastated when a broken arm means no summer camp for her. Instead, she and her sister are stuck with two obnoxious visitors. But Martha decides to create Camp Better Than Nothing, and makes it an unexpectedly wonderful summer for everyone. I love fierce Martha, who read all the same books I read. 😁

And now, after all this time, we're home together again. And all that staying away, I can't say it was worth it. I can't really name precisely what I was staying away from. It feels like a loss.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Four years after the events of “The Maid”, “The Mystery Guest” follows Molly Gray as another unexpectedly murder occurs, this time to a world- renown mystery writer. “The Mystery Guest” doesn‘t disappoint in this sequel, and I loved the characters and the several plots twists as well!

Not exactly “beach reads,” but that‘s okay, since the closest I‘ll be getting to the beach this summer is Shark Week.

😳 I‘ve been bailing left & right on audiobooks, including the tagged novel, The Wren the Wren, two Toibin novels, among others.

I‘m in an audio drought. 🏜️🌵

Leftcoastzen It could be just me but honestly, I find it hard to listen to literary fiction in audio format. A good mystery, thriller, or compelling non fiction works for me. 3w
TheBookHippie I cannot do audio at all so … 🤣😵‍💫😅 3w
Tamra @Leftcoastzen I think that is true - I‘ve noticed the same. Requires more concentration. 3w

Tamra @TheBookHippie gotta be the right book! 😉 3w
BarbaraBB I bailed on The Wren in print too and I didn‘t like your tagged book either. So maybe it‘s not you but the books 😀 3w
Cuilin I also bailed on the Wren, and I usually love her writing. 3w
squirrelbrain I really disliked the tagged, and can‘t imagine listening to it, so I don‘t think it‘s you. 3w
Tamra @BarbaraBB @Cuilin @squirrelbrain glad I‘m not alone! 😅 3w
Tamra @Cuilin I think I need to try another. 3w
Cuilin @Tamra wonderful but incredibly sad story of hers that I recommend is 3w
Tamra @Cuilin thank you for the recommendation! Stacking 3w
Ruthiella I‘m with @Leftcoastzen . I prefer audio books with a strong plot. I also prefer series via audio because you have a built in familiarity with it. 3w
jlhammar I hate when that happens! I also bailed on The Wren, The Wren audiobook. Hope you land on a good one soon 🎧 3w
Tamra @Ruthiella strong plot definitely makes an audio easier to follow. 👍🏾 (edited) 3w
Tamra @jlhammar 🤞🏾 Just a matter of time. But it‘s funny how dry spells run in streaks. 3w
