Doctor Who and the Planet of the Daleks (Classic N&hellip by Terrance Dicks
5 of 7 people found the following review helpful
This audiobook is nothing like the traditional old single voice talking books of the past. With added music & sound FX by gifted sound designer Simon Power it becomes an entirely new & modern type of listening experience. The hot, sticky atmosphere of the planet's jungle. The hollow, metallic echo of The Dalek's hideout. Even the creepy, lurking invisible sounds of the Spiridons. Every detail is meticulously targeted to enhance Mark Gatiss's excellent reading.

I've tried a few language tapes, but never lasted more than about an hour before dying of boredom. Michel Thomas' method is different to anything I've heard before, and it's also genuinely interesting to listen to as he drops in little facts and snippets around the learning. Within a couple of hours I was 'thinking' in Spanish for limited phrases, and quickly built a handy knowledge of Spanish.

It's true that I'm only 20% of the way through the CD's, but I'm actually looking forward to the rest of the course - which is a first for me. His method of teaching and implanting knowledge is very subtle, and you won't even realise how much you're taking in while you're listening… Read more
