Descender vol. 1
Descender Volume 1: Tin Stars (Descender Tp) - Jeff Lemire,Dustin Nguyen,Dustin Nguyen

Descender, Vol. 1: Tin Stars has some exceptional artwork and the story is very engaging. I recently watched the series, "Westworld", sparking my interest in stories with androids. This series by the talented Jeff Lemire certainly doesn't disappoint. The main character is the cutest bot ever! Illustrated beautifully the first volume begins with TIM 21 embarking on a journey to find his human companion, Andy. Full of mystery this strange new world is very intriguing! Little bot, big universe, indeed.

Goodreads adds a reread feature!

This is fantastic news! It has already been showing up as a feature in my books and I have to say I really like it. Having correct reading dates on my books and not adding a different edition to account for a reread, made Goodreads a lot more appealing as my main book-catalog-keeping-tool.  

Now another requested feature is the half star rating (sidenote: both features are available here at BL).

Heart of darkness free @audible

Written: Joseph Conrad

Narrated by: Kenneth Branagh

Length: 3 h 51mins

(Unabridged Audiobook)

Release Date:11-23-10

Prose that demands to be read aloud requires a special kind of narrator. For the Audible Signature Classics edition of Joseph Conrad’s atmospheric masterpiece, Heart of Darkness, we called upon four-time Academy Award nominee Kenneth Branagh.

Branagh’s performance is riveting because he reads as though he’s telling a ghost story by a campfire, capturing the story’s sense of claustrophobia, while hinting at the storyteller Marlow’s own creeping madness.

Heart of Darkness follows Captain Marlow into the colonial Congo where he searches for a mysterious ivory trader, Kurtz, and discovers an evil that will haunt him forever. With this landmark work, Conrad is credited with bringing the novel into the twentieth century; we think Branagh brings it into the twenty-first. Stay tuned for more one-of-a-kind performances from actors David Hyde Pierce, Leelee Sobieski, Tim Curry, and more, only from Audible Signature Classics.

Every month "Amazon whispesync" offers a classic title for free; this february it's "Heart of Darkness" by Joseph Conrad. To get the deal first get this kindle version (for free) and then get the free audiobook here. There is also another narration for free once you get the kindle book; one narrated by Frederick Davidson. You can choose or get both!

Happy Listening!
