Tons of people loved the sandman audiobook on audible. It’s free right now and I’m maybe 20% in and debating on aborting

Anyone here listen to it and think I should just power through? I’m not a big full cast/graphic audio fan so that is playing a part here

Sandman? Like the comic? Read the comic

Yeah, I saw so many good reviews on the audiobook and only after about 30 minutes did I realize it was an adaptation from a comic. So that was user error on my part. I did see it was DC but thought it was a “book” with their characters, whoops

It’s free on audible right now, still doesn’t seem worth it :dunno:

Two books left until the slowdown. Lord of Chaos is a fun book since the main characters all start to accept their respective roles.

reading the southern reach trilogy by jeff vandermeer, it's so good, first series in a long time i have a hard time putting down

yeah i couldn't put down authority, that book was fascinating

sadly i haven't really felt the same about any of the books he's written after that including acceptance but i've still liked them all.

i'm partway into authority right now, it's a pretty clever way to talk about area x without just having a ton of exposition. too bad acceptance isn't as good.

i took a look at some of his other books at the bookstore, nothing really grabbed me though. have you read any of the ambergris books? they seem like they might be interesting
