David sez, "Yahoo Group's Hard SF group chose Little Brother as the book to read and discuss in December. I could not read the 'dead tree' edition, as I'm visually impaired. I took advantage of your Creative Commons license, and generated MP3 files from the .txt file. The synthetic voice is one of the better ones, however to limit the file sizes I created them at 64Kbs. At that rate the voice is on the flat side, but not 'computer sounding'. I posted the files to archive.org."
Fantastic! And just a reminder, there's a remixable, DRM-free audiobook from Random House Audio available here.

A worthy younger sibling to Orwell’s 1984, Cory Doctorow’s LITTLE BROTHER is lively, precocious, and most importantly, a little scary.
