Installing Linux on a Dead Badger Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Installing Linux on a Dead Badger (and other Oddities) is a collection of Lucy Snyder's humorous essays, fiction, and articles, some culled from places like Strange Horizons and Spacesuits and Six-Guns and some brand new. This collection of 13 short stories, articles, and essays from Lucy A. Snyder will appeal to any fan of zombies, aliens, or installation manuals. Here's what Wikipedia said about Lucy, last time we checked: "Lucy A. Snyder is an American science fiction, fantasy, humor, and nonfiction writer. She grew up in San Angelo, Texas but moved to Bloomington, Indiana for graduate studies at Indiana University and currently lives in Columbus, Ohio with her husband Gary A. Braunbeck. Snyder served as an editor for HMS Beagle, an online bioscience publication produced by Elsevier. She has also contributed technical articles to publications such as Electronic Products."

Fast paced writing and a short overall length will have you finished in a few code compiling sessions and will be guaranteed to leave more of a smile on your face than closing off tickets with "ID:10T error".
That's not to say this is bad, and if you love this genre, this book will be more of what you love.
I'm a few pages in (Locations 80-90 of 797), and I'm already wanting to tear my hair out from the typos in this edition. There appear to have been at least one or two missing words so far, there's missing punctuation (e.g., opening or closing parentheses), and a lot of words that look like they should have hyphens are instead just jammed together (e.g., "gangreenfree"). So far, the text reads like someone rammed it through a cheap converter and didn't proof it afterwards to ensure it was properly formatted.
If you want to read these stories and are the kind of person who's easily distracted by errors, I'd recommend picking up a hardcopy until they push an updated edition of the Kindle version.

Le style est simple, journalistique, frais. L'absurde alterne avec une satire aussi nerdy que décapante.
Le lecteur est averti par un logo en 4e de couv : "lurid acts of Linux & dodgy tech advice"!!
Ça se lit tout seul, comme on boit du petit lait, et on est triste d'en arriver au bout ; on en voudrait encore un peu plus!
Ce livre est frais et dingue ; il semble le fruit de l'union contre-nature entre des Monty Pithon zombies et un informaticien aussi technocrate que siphonné! Lucy Snyder tisse un univers délirant qui, entre autre, est le miroir du cauchemar éveillé que nous vivons chaque fois que nous affrontons un DRH dans la réalité! (désolé les DRH!!)
