  • Thaj: Great book. Makes me want to go back and re-read the previous book. I wonder how well some of the commentary present in this book will resonate in the future. The story is good enough I have no doubt that it will still be a good read, but I'm not sure if it might loose a bit.
  • x1101: I Loved this book. So much so that I listened to it twice. Every chapter is a cliff hanger.
  • pokey: I LOVE this AudioBook! The author (Lostinbronx) really made me care about each of the characters. Every chapter is a cliff hanger, and that WORKS precisely because I do care about the characters.
  • pegwole: It was a fantastic post modern essay on life. Even though I listened to the wrong AudioBook.
  • CrispyoneFifty: Speaking for all of humanity, to all of humanity's future, I say "you should go download and listen to this AudioBook!"



As usual, the HPR_AudioBookClub took some time to review the beverages that each of us were drinking during the episode

  • Thaj: Running late, just drinking water. I know LAME!
  • x1101: Black Isle Organic Oatmeal Stout. Very little head, a cholate/coffee nose, as well as chocolate/coffee malt notes. Not overly fizzy, but not sudsy at all. Excellent.
  • pokey: I drank a Six Star Creatine fruit punch because I'm tired of looking like Ejoq. I have to go to the gym after the show, and this stuff seems to help with muscle recovery. It tastes pretty good. There's no funny artificial sweetener after taste, for which I'm very grateful.
  • pegwole: It's coffee. Its not a special one either, now shut up.
  • CrispyoneFifty: Newcastle Werewolf Blood-Red Ale It's sweet up front, and leaves a sweet after taste, with a punch of bitter in between. You can definitely taste the rye in there too.

The Call of Cthulhu by H. P. Lovecraft

pegwole suggested this AudioBook, and we all thought that horror was a pretty good selection for our October recording.

Wow, Thanks So Much!

Fun, irreverent, and sprawling -- you guys are the best! Featuring "Street Candles" for this installment of the Book Club was very much appreciated!

I *was* just about caught up with HPR, but now I'm several episodes behind while I enjoy the pocket universe lostnbronx has created. This is great stuph.
