Works of literature worth frothing over (or avoiding like the pox).

Good call, loved the book.

Monster Hunter International. A total of five books, each fantastic.

Modern day cthulhu type monsters mixed with guns/werewolves, vampires, frankenstiens, etc. etc.

A bit on the cheesy side, but it listens like a comic book reads....all action, great characters, etc.

I can't recommend them enough.

They've been on the 'most downloaded' list on audible several times.

Freebie from Audible, 10+ hours' worth of "celebs" including Ice T and Will Wheaton reading Drizzt Do'Urden stuff from D&D...

I don't usually listen to audio books, and I fucking hate the Drizzt shite. But I'm a huge fan of Ice T and Weird Al Yankovic so I've had to get it now.

But now it wants me to install a fucking app and stream the bastard thing. I just want to fucking download it so I can stick it on my phone and not have to eat up the data allowance on my phone.

Anyway, thanks for the tip, Geronimo. I can only imagine hearing Weird Al and Will Wheaton reading Salvatore's dire prose is going to be fucking hilarious. If I can ever get the bastard thing working. :cuss:

Not a big fan of Drizzt myself, but it's ideal commute/drive fodder while shouting at other road users.

Yeah. I've managed to download it through the app so if I get a chance to do some painting today I'll put it on in the background and chortle along.
