A quick update today to remind you that Jake Gyllenhaal's reading of The Great Gatsby is available today to listen to. No longer will commuting be a pain, now the longer the drive the better. Who needs to learn a foreign language when instead you can fill your car journey with Jake's well-formed vowels?
The audio book - all 4 hours and 49 minutes of it - is available from Audible.com. You can listen to snippets here. In the UK, you can download it from Amazon. The CD will be available on 7 May to buy if you want something tangible to keep.
However, if the Great Gatsby is not to your taste and you fancy something a little less....human, then you are in luck! It would appear that Jake has caught the narrating bug and has managed to combine it with a healthy interest in ducks. Jake is also narrating for the nook three kiddie books by Robert McClusky: Make Way for Ducklings, Blueberries for Sal and One Morning in Maine. Admittedly only one is about ducks but I like ducks. Of course, Jake once very nearly appeared in Howard the Duck but his mother wouldn't let him (sensible woman). Thanks for Gyllencrazy for the tweet!
