  • I’m waiting for the puppet show version of “The Belly of Paris” but maybe after that . . .

  • This sounds intriguing. I might be tempted to join you with the books too.

  • But can I knit and listen too?

  • If you don’t have an Audible subscription you can listen via the free “BBC Sounds” app (formerly “BBC iPlayer Radio”). Just put “Blood, Sex and Money” into the search bar and the list of episodes will come up. (Scroll down the list to start – the most recent episode is at the top).

  • I have the BBC Radio 4 app, but the episodes are not available at this time’. Waaaa

    • I was able to access ok. When I tapped the series name after searching, a list came up. Looks like series 1 and 2 are available. I scrolled to the bottom and started the first episode (says 44 min – I didn’t listen to it all yet). Are you using “BBC Sounds” app?

      • Yes I found it on the BBC Sounds app, thanks for that tip Lynda!

        • And thank YOU DG!

  • All 20 books are available on Kindle for $ 0.99, and that’s 7000 + pages! My kindle is on my phone; wonder how that would affect its working speed. Goodness! But I’m very intrigued. Change the subject: will the Atlas yarn be available anytime soon? besides in the beginner kit?

    • DG, you have bossed me into spending 99 cents to dig in to these novels. You have not steered me wrong in entertainment yet!!

  • Hmmm, it’s fiction, but since my maternal grandfather was a Rougon, think this might be fun!?!?

  • Wow! I share the surname – no relation, sadly. In HS I tried to read him. All that realism style detail drove me nuts. Also maybe it was a bad translation. For DECADES much guilt about not reading him. Not even J’acuse. Perhaps the audio is just my thing. Or maybe now that I’m old and gray (well, somewhat gray during pandemic – until 2 weeks ago ), I should try reading him again. Hah! Who am I kidding? (I now have greatly diminished reading ability). BBC, i’tis. Thanks!

    • The “bad translation” issue is one that matters — I’ve been reading the new ones that Oxford World Classics has been dribbling out over the past few years; they finally got to the 20th one just this year. They feel pretty fresh and lively.

  • Thank you DC Strong for all your wonderful suggestions on your blog for MDK. I have been listening to Blood, Sex & Money for the last few days and can not stop! Not only is the narrator wonderful but the stories!!!!!! I would probably never had even looked at this audio book unless you had recommended it. All your recommendations for “Knit to This” are fabulous. Your articles are only one of the reasons i LOVE MDK. Thanks again.
