This says it's a "spy thriller":

Him reading audio books has been a success before :D
Maybe a future TV series? ;-)

Yes I must say putting one of the audio books he has done in the CD player sure makes a long drive much nicer!

I'll have to check that one out.

Thanks Thunder!

I enjoy listening to the audio books read by Jason, unfortunately his voice puts me to sleep! When I'm home, not driving!

It's a good way to fall asleep, though. ;-)

(I moved the forum temporary up here so more will notice.)

I love when he reads books; he's just so gifted (I'm lucky, I can usually drive while I'm listening, the only time I REALLY messed up was listening to HP - I was around the corner from my house, and I hadn't read the book yet. I heard Snape Avada Kadavra Dumbledore, I nearly hit my friend's tree...luckily I stopped. She thought I was nuts when I told her why I lost control of the car momentarily "it was like crack" (I thought but didn't say). Aside from THAT incident, I'm ok listening to him read. Anyway YEAH! :hands ~ellen

There's a sample we can listen to here:

And I think we can buy it too.

It's available for pre purchase on Amazon... :woot (and I think it's being released before CH2. When you look on Amazon, it DOESN'T say who reads it, the space is blank...they need to fill that part in already). ~ellen

I just, just...Amazon "Night Heron est delivery due May 21".....the estimated delivery of CH2 July 18..WT??? I'm so confused :huh (and I realize 1/2 of the statement was in the wrong thread, but I couldn't divide the sentence, apologies all around...my confusion is sometimes found on many levels) ~ellen

Well, no brainer...it's a really good story. As for the bloke reading it, what can I say, terrible, just terrible. He mumbles, can't understand--na! Who am I trying to kid? It's the LGF! ;-) Incredible as always, listening sitting bolt upright in my computer chair spellbound. Sometimes I think he should re-record HP, but Jim Dale and whoever did it in England were each really great. There were times I used to think Alan Rickman could read the Yellow/White Pages, but I've changed my mind so throughly; then I wonder, WHY in the world would Jason ever WANT to read the yellow/white pages to anyone??? Certainly little carreer advancement there! :roll: ~ellen

Thanks, Ellen. Thinking about buying this before summer vacation.

Really my only negative comments would be the price (it was like $30.00, which I thought was pretty high), and the way it is packed and wrapped in a flimsy cardboard holder which could have improved upon. Obviously the listening is unparalleled. :mrgreen: ~ellen

I bought it on iTunes couple of days ago, and tried to listen before going to bed but fell asleep (no suprise). Will try again some other time.
