Book Review: A Rare Book of Cunning Device by Ben Aaronovitch

My thoughts about the audiobook A Rare Book of Cunning Device by Ben Aaronovitch

Narrated by Kobna Holdbrook-Smith

Exclusive to Audio! 

Somewhere amongst the shadowy stacks and the many basements of the British library, something is very much amiss - and we're not talking late returns here. Is it a ghost, or something much worse? PC Peter Grant really isn't looking forward to finding out....

  1. Glad you liked it so much. Sounds really good. I do like that you pronounce 'Audio' completely different to how I pronounce it. Great review.

    1. Now I'm curious about how you pronounce it. I tend to say it with Italian pronunciation just out of habit now as I speak mainly Italian (actually I tend to speak only Italian except when I'm teaching English). I've spent half my life in the UK and half in Italy. It's weird how my brain flips between the two languages now.

    1. I didn't realise it was part of a series at first either. I'm curious to read a full length instalment of the series now though.

  4. Do you have access to Libro.fm in Italy?! Similar to audible they supply monthly credit for audiobooks but the local bookstore of your choice gets the $ for the book you download! :)

    1. That sounds like a great system. I'm not sure to be honest. I'll be investigating it now though.

    1. I think this particular instalment is only on audible. It was free when I got it. I think the full length books from the series are available in ebook and print though.
