Lorna Doone - R.D. Blackmore

After having ditched Their Finest, I decided to listen to a classic. I´ve choosen Lorna Doone: A Romance of Exmoor. The romance in Exmoor part sounds so incredibly dramatic.

 

So far it´s really good. Sweeping descriptions of the landscapes, dramatic happenings in the life of the main character and the intriguing Doone clan, who are the bain of Exmoor, them being thieves and rogues.

 

The main character John Ridd and Lorna Doone already had their first meet cute, John being 15 years old and Lorna being 8 years old. A fact I´m a little bit iffy about.

Reading progress update: DNF at 172 out of 766 minutes.
Their Finest - Lissa Evans

The incredibly boring tale of I don´t know what. This book is about the making of a propaganda movie, at least I think so. Honestly, three hours in and I don´t have a clue what this book exactly is about.

 

DNF at 172 minutes.

Audible Daily Deal for October 27th, 2017 - Burnt Offerings by Robert Marasco for $2.95
Burnt Offerings: Valancourt 20th Century Classics - Robert Marasco,R.C. Bray

Ben and Marian Rolfe are desperate to escape a stifling summer in their tiny Brooklyn apartment, so when they get the chance to rent a mansion in upstate New York for the entire summer for only $900, it's an offer that's too good to refuse. There's only one catch: behind a strange and intricately carved door in a distant wing of the house lives elderly Mrs. Allardyce, and the Rolfes will be responsible for preparing her meals.

 

But Mrs. Allardyce never seems to emerge from her room, and it soon becomes clear that something weird and terrifying is happening in the house. As the suspense builds toward a revelation of what really lies behind that locked door, the Rolfes will discover that their cheap vacation rental comes at a terrible cost....
