About this deal

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. 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. Sandy Mitchell is one of those authors I keep going back to, because he has the uncanny ability of bringing a breath of fresh air to a depressing setting, even if horrible things happen around the self proclaimed coward Ciaphas Cain claims he is. While it disguised this well for some time, toward start of the third trilogy these problems became much more obvious.

Choose Your Enemies officially marks Ciaphas Cain’s becoming a long-running series, and with any long series, you have to wonder if the adventures will remain fresh and engaging after so many years. 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.While 40k isn’t exactly known for humour, the Cain books are one of the few exceptions, and this is a great example of Mitchell’s easy to read style. Main Hi Kahaani Hoon”, an Audible Original is a weekly storytelling show of 20 episode from Audible, written-created-performed by Major Akhill Pratap; an ex-Army Officer popularly known as The Soldier and The Storyteller.

In this five-part series, US happiness expert and positive psychologist Michelle Gielan and British journalist and author Oliver Burkeman explore ways to become truly happier, backed up by scientific evidence. 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. Of course, by now I'm fairly certain of what to expect; Humour, action, lots of poking fun at the entire setting and quite a few foot notes by one of our favourite (slightly) psychopathic inquisitor. But through self-discipline, mental toughness, and hard work, Goggins transformed himself from a depressed, overweight young man with no future into a US Armed Forces icon and one of the world's top endurance athletes.However, the careful reader notes that the man protests too much, probably driven to deny his actual bravery and compassion for his comrades by the Imperium's culture of post-apocalyptic martyrdom. As a result, while it still offers commentary on a broader event, the story feels far more complete and better executed.

once again, Sandy Mitchell has created another fine tale of the Hero of the Imperium's escapades, and I can't recommend it enough!There's a reason We Are Legion was named Audible's Best Science Fiction Book of 2016: Its irresistibly irreverent wit!

Disclaimer, I didn't realize that this book was a part of a whole series about Ciaphas Cain (which I am now looking into reading).

Do you feel weighed down by stress and pressure, held back by judgement and lack of opportunity, and critcised by everyone – including yourself? If you’ve ever read a Ciaphas Cain story before, you’ll know exactly what to expect here – Cain and Jurgen getting into trouble (largely unintentionally) and scraping their way out again, as described by Cain’s irreverent, knowing first person narration, with a little help from Inquisitor Vail’s snarky footnotes. The a mix of familiar faces offered more opportunities for jokes, stories and material for Cain's narration to work with. Now Caine delves into the real stories behind the gangs we think we know so well, revealing the hidden realities behind the myths.
