I’ve been wanting to write this for a long time.
I had the privilege and joy of listening to Robert A. Heinlein’s Farmer in the Sky. (1950). http://www.audible.com.au/pd/Sci-Fi-Fantasy/Farmer-in-the-Sky-Audiobook/B00FOA6T2E last year. It’s about 6.5 hours. It contains science fiction, farming, geopolitics and a vivid picture of family life and loving, helpful neighbours. Give it a listen : )
Currently, I am listening to the abridged (at 3 hours, thankfully) version of Call of the Wild. American Jack London originally wrote the series in The Saturday Evening Post, June 20-July 18, 1903. Its main protagonist is a dog.
Well, consider giving your eyes a break and simply focus on the voices? : ) They are available from the NLB, Singapore and probably a plethora of other sources.
London died at 40 from drugs and alcohol… The 100 best novels: No 35 – The Call of the Wild by Jack London (1903). The Guardian. (19 May 2014).
