Did an 'audiobook' get released?

The 3rd and final book will be up on Kickstarter today as I understand.

Lets hope the Final Chapter and Appendix will not be in Book 4 (sorry )

I also finished reading it not long ago. Great book, but it makes you lose faith in humanity. It's reads like a bad version of a Greek tragedy.
You nearly had to deliberately mishandle it to make C= crash&burn.

Instant back for me, can't leave it at that cliffhanger. I didn't read the first book but really enjoyed the second. The narratives from the people involved made for a much more compelling read than I'd expected.

Talk about fast moving Kickstarter! It might be successful before the day is over.
Got both extra cards and the wall plot. I wouldn't mind plots of all 3 chips...

EDIT: That was indeed fast. Target reached.

Think that's testament to the quality of Brian's previous books!

So if the first stretch goal is 40k and it`s funded at 19k. Where does the 21k go ? surely not all the to the 'foil stamped spine' ?

Stainy, I really had to think to understand your question.
First of all, more money -> more books.

Preordered from Amazon, arrived couple of days ago. Again some backers still have to wait for it. Quite happy I'm not among them this time.

Just wondering if there was anything new in this book specifically on the Commodore assets auction, sale and liquidation ? Escom, Commodore UK etc

I read David Pleasance's book recently and came to the swift conclusion his version of events and the plan he had were all lies and bs.

thanks

It ends with the end of Commodore basically, and doesn't say much about any leftovers.
I still wonder if any hardware design files survived.

Yes, I did but I have no e-book reader so I wait for the real book.
I read the latest kickstarter update, so it should reach Sweden early september, which is soon.

But I still think it's a bit bad cos the same thing happened for the previous book, it was available in stores before the backers in Sweden got it.
