Hello Ghouls and Boils,
Tell me a story! And so he has… Today I am thrilled to present my thoughts on Trent Zelazny‘s newest piece Fractal Despondency the audio edition! I had the pleasure of reading and reviewing the eBook edition a little over a year ago. But enough of the teasing, let’s get straight to the review… Enjoy, my fiends!

As I said in my intro I had the pleasure of reviewing Fractal Despondency last year. It was my first experience on a Kindle and I was thrilled and pleased it was such a pleasant one.
Fractal Despondency is a modern noir story. We follow Blake, a man who has had his share of heart ache. Until one day when he meets a woman named Denise. They go on reckless journey that is in the end a cleansing one for Blake Gladstone.
I truly enjoy hearing an author read their own work. My first experience was hearing Charles Bukowski read his poems on CD. It is interesting how it changes the way you read an author.
What do I mean? Glad you asked! When an author reads their own work you get to hear the cadence, tone, and inflection of their voice. Once I have heard an author read their own work every time I read a new piece of theirs I can hear their voice in my head.
It was amazing to listen to Trent reading Fractal Despondency. It was my bedtime story for a few nights. I reread the novella afterwards and heard his voice as clearly as if I had my headphones on again. I recommend this audio book to any Zelaznyite, anyone who is a fan or Noir, or anyone who likes audio books. It is a great story and it is made even better in audio format. I give this audiobook an easy 5 out 5 tentacles. Keep reading them Trent and I will keep listening!
