Mitosis

Open Your Ears To: Mitosis (for free!)

If you’ve read Brandson Sanderson’s first YA novel Steelheart, you’re going to love the novella Mistosis! I actually didn’t wait for the audio recording of Brandon Sanderson’s debut Young Adult novel Steelheart. I went for the hardback as soon as it was available. If you haven’t read Steelheart, you should, and definitely before listening to the free Audible.com recording of Mitosis, as the short story won’t make any sense without it’s predecessor. Steelheart fills the futuristic sci-fi, technologically advanced yet suffering-world void that The Hunger…

Don’t Open Your Ears To: Assassin’s Apprentice

The historic and ever popular book Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb is diminished by Paul Boehmer’s narrating Imagine it: an audiobook we finally don’t recommend. It had to come sometime. The acclaimed book Assassin’s Apprentice is the first in The Farseer Series by Robin Hobb. I’m not giving the book a bad review at all. In fact I’m itching to know what happens next! It’s been praised by fantasy authors such as Brandon Sanderson and George R.R. Martin and is undoubtedly a brilliant story. But…

Open Your Ears To: The Complete Harry Potter Series

By this point, Larkable doesn’t have to tell you how amazing Harry Potter is, you just know. But do you know how amazing it is when narrated by Jim Dale? (Image Source One of the very first audiobooks I listened to was Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. An 8 hour car ride seemed painfully long and while I have hours of music to listen to, why wouldn’t I listen to Harry Potter instead? Yeah, exactly, that’s an excellent argument, right? Audiobooks were the thing…

Would You Watch The Mortal Instruments TV Show?

The Hollywood Reporter announced that The Mortal Instruments will be renewed not as a movie sequel, but as a TV show (Image Source) So the question is: Would you watch The Mortal Instruments as a TV show? Our answer: Yes. Yes, we most certainly would. If Stargate: SG1 has proven anything, it’s that a TV series following a movie can actually out-do the movie itself. If Game of Thrones has proven anything, it’s that a book series translates better to the small screen rather than…
