That's a lovely idea. The Dark Lord of Derkholm is *awful*, assuming it's the same edition we have on audible UK. For some reason the narrator did all the family's voices in different accents, and it's really jarring.

Despite being in a coma Patrick says there have been some recent signs she can understand what people are saying, so it might be nice for her to have something familiar to listen to just in case.

If anyone wants to chip in they can send me money at paypal - I believe you can do so using my email address (though if someone has a better suggestion I’m open to it as this doesn’t feel very transparent!). Books don’t look to be very expensive - they are around $9 on audible - so we wouldn’t need much money to get a couple!
