January in Review

1 02 2011

January was a pretty good month for audiobooks. We had some strong new releases, Including new books by Dean Koontz, John Ringo, E. E. Knightm Robert Crais and John Lescroart. My favorite book of the month had to be Who Fears Death by Nnedi Okafor, which was also my biggest surprise of the months. I was also pleasantly surprised by Cobra by Timothy Zahn which had a lot more depth that I expected. My only real disappointment was Lescroart’s Damage, it had some good moments, but also a lot more annoying moments, and it dragged on and on.

You can click on the the book title’s below to read my reviews of the book.
