Audio – Bark To The Future

Jim Frangione, wonderful narrator of the audio versions of the Chet and Bernie mystery series – which can be read in any order! – recorded Bark To The Future (pub date 8/9) last week. He seems to have liked it! I’ll post the date when it becomes preorderable when I find out. (Meanwhile preorders for the hardcover and digital versions can happen this very minute!).

    I have never “read” an audio book. Glad Jim liked it…what’s not to like?!

    Some big storms coming to this neck of the woods.

    Good day to all!

    I love Jim’s voice. He also narrates several other series that I follow. He has such a rich tone.

    I did my first audio book maybe 20 years ago, when I was working 14 hours a day to finish a quilt for the local quilt show. I can’t remember the book but I liked it. I think it was some detective mystery although it may have been A Dog’s Life by Ann M Martin. It also could have been The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane.

    The next audio book I bought was The Art of Racing in the Rain because I was addicted and could listen to it to and from work in the car, and then pick up the book when I got home. I also have As You Wish narrated by Cary Elwes. I tend to gravitate to books narrated by the authors.

    I stopped audio books when I bought The Martian. This was NOT the Wil Wheaten version. The narrator was R. C. Bray and it was *awful*. Just a horrible narrator. I guess there must have been a lot of complaints because it was later rereleased with Wil Wheaton and I bought it because I loved the book and really wanted the audio book and Wheaton was so much better than the original narrator.

    I am hesitant to invest in an audio book for the Chet and Bernie series because I know if I buy one I will have to buy them all and if I end up not liking the narrator I am stuck between do or don’t. I also prefer my audio books on CD, not downloads or online subscriptions. It is my worst nightmare that I have Andrew Cotter’s Olive, Mabel and Me on Audible but cannot get the second book, A Year in the Life of Olive and Mabel. There is no US publisher sponsor or whatever for Audible and since it is not on CD there is no way to have a friend in the UK buy it and mail it to me. It’s a copyright thing. I can’t get the audio book at all! When the book was only available in the UK I was able to get a new copy from a second hand bookstore in the UK. It was eventually released in the US through amazon but it was a few months later. I’ve been waiting 6 months and still no audio book. All I get is the same form letter response from Audible when I complain.

    Staff!…I have a question for you from my friend. When you make pop0vers do you use actual pop0ver tins or do you use muffin tins?…snuffle!

    No library is going to have this audio book. It’s not on CD and it isn’t available in the United States due to copyright. I have the hard copy and have read it, but it’s not the same as listening to Mr. Andrew Cotter read his entire book.

    I have only make popovers once and was not impressed. I used muffin tins. I imagine if I loved them, made them often and had an excellent recipe for them, I would buy an actual tin for that purpose.

    If I were really serious about it, I would buy a vintage cast iron pan. You can’t go wrong with Wagner. Griswold is also good.

    Old Mountain makes a cast iron muffin pan available on amazon but it looks deeper than a regular muffin tin. Just be sure to properly season it first, no matter how much they promise it is already seasoned. Use flax seed oil.

    Lodge has a nice recipe but they use a muffin pan.

    King Arthur has a good recipe and a very nice six popover pan. It’s cast aluminum and non-stick but if you can’t afford vintage cast iron and don’t want to season, this looks like a winner.
