Bruno Kramzer
is the latest offering from an Aussie author who’s work I’ve previously enjoyed, A S Patric. Bruno Kramzer is described as ‘the story of the man sent to arrest Joseph K’ (the character in the classic novel The Trial by Franz Kafka) and is being released in Finlay Lloyd’s Smalls series.

The Trial by Franz Kafkaaudiobook narrated by Todd McLaren – Shame on me that I still have not read a Kafka despite long intending to. Alec sending me a copy of Bruno Kramzer for review has given me the little push I needed to finally get myself a copy of The Trial.

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsionaudiobook narrated by Dan O’Grady – This Aussie title has been on my wishlist from the moment I read the first of many glowing reviews. I just know I’m going to love this one, and it sounds like the perfect story to consume in audio.

    Hi Jo,

    ‘The Rosie Project’ sounds like an excellent choice, although I wouldn’t be able to listen to it, I would have to read it for myself. I am afraid that it may be a little too close to home for me though, as I have often been accused of having OCD about certain things and a work colleague who is also a head teacher, once told me that if I was one of her pupils, she would probably put me at the low end of the autism scale!! I am so glad that she isn’t my teacher!!

    Given my new found liking for short stories and novellas, I also quite like the sound of Bruno Kramzer, so both books are heading for my reading list.

    Thanks for sharing and have a good week,

    Yvonne
