Description

This deeply personal and supportive series offers listeners an honest and relatable insight into how some the UK's best-known celebrities have coped with mental health difficulties, ranging from OCD to insomnia, addiction to grief, and depression to anxiety. They're both well written, excellently paced and brilliantly described, but the supporting cast elevates the tale to a new level.

There is a more consistent effort to balance this against the major narrative, while the time-skips needed to work around story moments are far better placed. If I didn't love the character, I would point out that the author is getting more and more repetitive in plots. They make them at the dinner table, or in a meeting room, where personal history, your own unique view of the world, ego, pride, marketing, and odd incentives are scrambled together. Our favorite commissar is back with his usual ambiguity as to exactly how much he is underselling himself. This allows her to have a greater voice in certain events and more substantial pieces to compliment where Cain glosses over key details.In this story the Eldar are his first foe but it's not long before he uncovers a chaos cult on the moon and an old inquisitorial friend reappears. Michael Pollan, known for his best-selling nonfiction audio, including The Omnivores Dilemma and How to Change Your Mind, conceived and wrote Caffeine: How Caffeine Created the Modern World as an Audible Original. Access to the Plus Catalogue—thousands of Audible Originals, audiobooks and podcasts, including exclusive series. However, it does mean that you should not binge them, as the average reader is likely to get bored of the formula rather quickly. In each episode you'll follow one person's journey, getting to listen in on their coaching sessions with Selina and following them as she sends them off on a task to try out a new career idea.

This grossly oversimplified understanding has created many complexities in our lives and taken away from us the very fundamentals of the joy of living. It goes from having an intense and well executed final act, to abruptly racing through to the ending, and resolving things far too cleanly. For Arthur Dent, who has only just had his house demolished that morning, this seems already to be more than he can cope with. As battle explodes across the planet, Ciaphas Cain and his regiment come up against allies and enemies old and new in their fight for victory against the forces of Chaos.Not only is Stephen Perring’s Cain an absolute delight throughout, audio serves the structure brilliantly. Anyway, Cain is cynical and sardonic, ready to dispense quips at anyone's expense (including his own), and the footnotes (written in-universe by his love interest Amberley Vail) take all the potshots at Cain's expense he doesn't take, and anyone else's besides.

Part of this might be down to some surprisingly odd actions by the races involved in the story, but also how everything is instantly resolved. In The Coldest Case: A Black Book Audio Drama, homicide detective Billy Harney sends his new partner, Kate, deep undercover in a notorious Chicago drug ring. Now Caine delves into the real stories behind the gangs we think we know so well, revealing the hidden realities behind the myths. Given that, behind Eisenhorn, the Ciaphas Cain books are among the few which delve deeper into the inner workings of the Imperium's daily life, this is a very welcome addition.In the absolutely packed Act II, the dark fantasy resumes and the Sandman expands into the French Revolution, ancient Rome, 19th-century San Francisco, eighth-century Baghdad, and beyond. I really like the humor all around the book, some of the explanation passages or some descriptive areas got me nearly bored but overall the reading experience has been positive and entertaining. once again, Sandy Mitchell has created another fine tale of the Hero of the Imperium's escapades, and I can't recommend it enough! What I wasn't prepared for was one of the few novels where the eldar are presented as competent and where an Avatar of Khaine actually carries its weight, and more, in battle.

While hardly the worst example put onto paper, the efforts to reflect Cain's less formulaic style often interferes with the finer parts of pacing a book. It doesn't feel as if the world is bending over backward to have him find a role within the larger story.Despite this, Mitchell is a talented enough author to avoid most of the truly dark elements within Warhammer 40,000 and still make it extremely loyal to the overall universe. Being with your partner may feel like rainbows and unicorns, but that doesn't mean you have a healthy, functioning relationship. given that I picked this book up and read it all within the space of a day, I can safely say Cain has not lost his touch! The way the story manages to execute a better pace is by working around a lot of the flab present in past stories. Sling the stories together into a coherent narrative, and the jokes would wear thin, the action repetitive, and the overall story bogged down.
