    Episode 76 | The Big Sleep

    In this 76th episode, I review The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler. I read this book to check out one of the founding pulp detective novels. Though there are some things to beware of reading this book today, it was a great read and very well written. Listen to hear my thoughts on the book, and some other thoughts on reading older literature in general, reading the works that inspired your favorite authors, and reading things at different ages.

    In this 75th episode, I review Shadows of the Highridge by Jay Swanson. This prequel novel to Jay's incredible "Into the Nanten" was amazing.

    In this 73rd episode, I review Into The Nanten - The Record of My Exile by Jay Swanson. It was my favorite book of 2016 back when I reviewed it.

    Episode 72 | The Chimera Sequence

    In this 72nd episode, I review The Chimera Sequence by Elliott Garber. This book was rich in action, cosmopolitan characters, science and medicine, and touching scenes. It's about a group who risk their lives to fight off evil men while trying to save a special group of gorillas. The audiobook was amazing. The narrator nailed every accent and his narration was spot on.

Tok Tiratzo ,

Quick, fun little stories

I like listening to Dan's stories because of his interesting characters. From the bully down the street with a soft side to a kid having to run from the mean crow in his backyard, I'm sure to find someone fun to hear about when I listen in. His songs are good too and a nice break in the pace.
