I think most of my blog readers and friends know by now that I loved the book Drood, by Dan Simmons. I read Drood, by Dan Simmons as part of a February Blog Tour and the book was amazing. I was all to excited to get the audio version also. When I finished Drood, I was rather bummed. I loved latching on to that book and was sad that it was over. So the audio came just in time to let me relive my favorite Drood moments.
One word review: Fantastic.
Okay, Toni elaborate please! I can not say enough of it. The reader, Simon Prebble does a perfect job of reading. The accent, tone and attitude is spot on for me. I have it in my car and I listen to it often. Even listening to it more than once! This is an abridged version and because I read the book, I do notice the missing bits here and there. But I still feel that the whole story and effect can be realized from from the audio.
I maintain that Drood is an instant classic, superbly written and will continue to fascinate and entertain audiences for a long time.
Thank you all the nice people at Hachette books for providing review copies of the book and the audio. Also for allowing me to Host Giveaways for the books.
Cheers and here's to keeping Drood alive at my house and in my car!
