The Guardian Books Podcast has started offering an audiobook version of the young adult novel Wolf Brother as a serial podcast. The story is the first in a series of books by Michelle Paver called Chronicles of Ancient Darkness. It makes good audio since it’s gripping and not hard to follow (or get back into if you get distracted). But what really makes it worthwhile is Ian McKellan’s voice, which lends the tale just the right level of ancient, magical atmosphere. The Guardian has released 9 out of 13 episodes so far, at a rate of one a week. (Site, iTunes)
