Picked up a second-hand copy of the MP3-CD, having enjoyed the webcomic version for years:
While not as impressively vocalised as the full-cast Girl Genius radioplays, it's a well-produced audiobook, and the extra details were most welcome. The voices and descriptions brought the images instantly to mind, and brought memories flooding back.
It's a shame the audiobook of the first novel in the series is more expensive, but I suspect I'll be buying it anyway, having listened to this one!

A well-done novelization of the Girl Genius comic. A madcap steampunk adventure with loads of charming characters - I especially like how many different female characters they are, both sympathetic and villaneous, and that they're all different. The novel is much better than the first book in the series, meatier and with several fun scenes added for those who already know the comic. If one doesn't, it's still a great swashbuckling adventure, warmly recommended! Also, the hardcover edition is really pretty.
