Audiobook: The Dispatcher and Tell Me Something Tuesday : Picks for Summer 2017

One day, not long from now, it becomes almost impossible to murder anyone - 999 times out of a thousand, anyone who is intentionally killed comes back. How? We don't know. But it changes everything: war, crime, daily life.

Tony Valdez is a Dispatcher - a licensed, bonded professional whose job is to humanely dispatch those whose circumstances put them in death's crosshairs, so they can have a second chance to avoid the reaper. But when a fellow Dispatcher and former friend is apparently kidnapped, Tony learns that there are some things that are worse than death and that some people are ready to do almost anything to avenge a supposed wrong.

It's a race against time for Valdez to find his friend before it's too late...before not even a Dispatcher can save him.

My thoughts:
Since this one was free I was all yes please. Oh and narrated by Quinto! Nice. He did well, and I do like his voice.

The story was interesting and weird. It seems that you can bring people back from the dead. How? Nobody knows. Strange but yes like I said interesting. The book follows Tony who helps a cop find a fellow dispatcher that has gone missing. We learn more about crime, how to get around the dispatcher issue and the darker side of dispatching.

It was short, but hey it still takes a long time for me to listen so I was all for that.

Good and short

June 6th: Picks for Summer 2017
I had to go check my wishlist, but you know that might change before summer has come as I am writing this in March, but here are a few picks.

Grave witch Alex Craft is no stranger to the dead talking. She raises shades, works with ghosts, and is dating Death himself. But the dead walking? That’s not supposed to happen. And yet reanimated corpses are committing crimes across Nekros City.


Kate Harker is a girl who isn’t afraid of the dark. She’s a girl who hunts monsters. And she’s good at it. August Flynn is a monster who can never be human, no matter how much he once yearned for it. He’s a monster with a part to play. And he will play it, no matter the cost.

Book 2! I can't wait

With her brother Thomas injured on the battlefront in the Colonies, orphaned Cecilia Harcourt has two unbearable choices: move in with a maiden aunt or marry a scheming cousin. Instead, she chooses option three and travels across the Atlantic

Because it's Quinn

I picked up and listened to Dispatcher for the same reasons. I really, really liked it. In fact, I had my son listen too. It is an interesting concept and the narration was awesome.

Karen said...

I might check out that audio book. I'm attempting my first one (in many, many years) and a short one sounds like a good way to jump in.

For What It's Worth

Melanie Simmons (mlsimmons) said...

I really enjoyed this story too. It was very full story for being so short. I'm excited for Alex Craft too. :-)

Short but still hard to get into? Hmmm. Sounds interesting, though!

LilyElement said...

Yay for good and short :) I keep eye balling that series by KPrice!!

Heidi@Rainy Day Ramblings said...

Why haven't I seen that Schwab book? I really need to go research it. I have been eyeing the Price series for years and still haven't picked it up.

Blodeuedd said...

Free is always awesome :D
Such a weird and cool concept

Short is totally the way to start!

They're all new to me.

Angie Elle said...

Oh, wow. That is an interesting premise. It sounds like a lot to tackle for a short story!

Mia Celeste said...

I like The Dispatchers. I've listened to it about 10 times. #getsocial17

Quinto was so good as a narrator, right? I had the print book but when I saw he was reading, I just had to get a copy of the audiobook as well.

Greg said...

The Kalayna Price books do look good. And The Dispatcher- that's a cool premise! I wonder why people are coming back? :)

Sophia Rose said...

I loved the Dispatcher. It was quirky, but a fun mystery and Quinto was a great narrator.

Neat that you could do a Summer list. I always blank when I have to come up with a new season's release list. :)

Anna (herding cats-burning soup) said...

Oo Grave Ransom looks good!

Melliane said...

Nice! I need to try the Price one! I have it and I'm so ipatient!

Blodeuedd said...

Blodeuedd said...

It worked well

Blodeuedd said...

That is one way of loving it :D

Blodeuedd said...

I did like listening to his voice :D

Blodeuedd said...

No idea, neither had they. The power of something

Blodeuedd said...

It was hard! I never remember when books are out, I have to check my wishlist and go all oh...that one is out?

Blodeuedd said...

:)

Blodeuedd said...

Ohhh read it

Evelina @ AvalinahsBooks said...

I've heard about The Dispacher lately, doesn't seem like standard Scalzi, but still seems pretty interesting.

Blodeuedd said...

I have only read one by him and I can sort of see how it's by the same guy

Unknown said...

Not sure about the Dispatcher. Your wishlist looks good!

Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer said...

I enjoyed the Dispatcher too. And yes Quinn is always good.

Keertana said...

Quinn's latest is quite entertaining, though not a historical romance fave, and I'm so excited for Our Dark Duet!! It's going to be amazing, I know. :)

Blodeuedd said...

:)

Blodeuedd said...

That she is

Blodeuedd said...

I sure hope so!

Carole Rae said...

1) Short and good is the best.

2) Some good choices.

Blodeuedd said...

:)

Carol said...

The Dispatcher sounds good - and sometimes I like short. I just finished my first by Scalzi the other day.

Blodeuedd said...

Do try it
