Finished my third "reading" and first listening-to of The Time Ships, a great book, an official sequel to The Time Machine written by Stephen Baxter. If you like amazingly complex stories of time travel, it's a real treat. Best of all was the performance by the reader, who got all the accents perfect, including Nebogpifel, the Morlock from the year 657,208. Highly recommended!

I loved Ready Player One, written by Ernest Cline and read by Wil Wheaton.

I just finished this book last night, I listened to it at every moment it was so fun. Engaging, interesting, exciting, new, GOOD.

I listened to "Lost Horizon" by James Hilton, read by Richard Green. I was only able to get it on cassette (ex-library), but it was a fun listen. It's from the 1930s and is where the story of Shangrila came from.

I'm currently listening to Born to Run by Christopher McDougall , read by Fred Sanders.
It's about how the author, a writer and (broken) runner, went on a quest to uncover the secrets of a tribe of very long distance runners in Mexico. This book might be one of the more popular to inspire the "barefoot running" movement.

if you're in the US, look into overdrive. they team up with libraries to let you digitally borrow audiobooks. dunno if it's available outside of the US.

if you're not picky about what books you get, there are services like audiobook boom which give out specific free audible books in exchange for reviews. i've been using them 1-2 months now and haven't paid full price for a book in a while.

you can also checkout whispersync deals. sometimes it's possible to buy a kindle ebook for < 4$ and add on the audiobook for < 4$, which ends up being cheaper than just the audiobook. the most popular books are usually more expensive, so look into the lesser known authors. here's an example where the ebook is free and the audiobook is 1.99$ after you get the ebook: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00APAH7PQ

perfume by Patrick Suskind and read by Sean Barrett.

Amazing book, it is the perfect bait for a nibbling audiophile.

Perfume narrated by Sean Barrett. In his review Roger Ebert labels it "the best audio performance I have ever heard". So I had to track it down, and I have to agree, it's an amazing performance. He also goes on to say, "I once almost destroyed a dinner party by putting it on for "five minutes," after which nobody wanted to stop listening". I don't know why Sean Barrett's version is not on Audible, but there appears to be a new version scheduled to release Oct. 30th. If you have the chance to locate the original, defiantly give it a listen. Edit: It is on Audible! Highly reccomended

several of the classics provide 99c audiobooks with the free kindle book. Check these: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=amb_link_420460782_5?ie=UTF8&node=6522096011&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER

Also Monster Hunter International has a free kindle book, providing a $2 audiobook, rather than the $4.95 of the sale.

I just published my own audiobook, and I have a free code if you’re in the US or UK! It’s a YA sci-fi called Returning the Golden-Eyed Girl , and it’s about a girl who gets trapped in a floating city. Let me know if you’re interested!

If you're in the mood of pranking/educate her, pick the better version: Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde.

u/imatschoolyo · 1 pointr/audiobooks

I've got nothing for horror, but have you read Paranoia yet? That was a surprise hit for me, sort of thriller-ish, but not in the guns blazing kind of way.

A righteous mind by Jonathan Haidt

You can find the audiobook Oh the pirate Bay of you're so inclined. It's worth purchasing though imo.

Here's the listing on worldcat:


It's available on amazon, starting at $333.99:


You probably already know it's an abridged recording.

There is one I heard some time ago: Epic - it was ok IMO. but I can't find an audible link :|

Can we please get a walk thru on how to get the kindle version for 99 cents that we can then add on the Audible?

If I go here, it lets me buy kindle for 99 cents but there's no option to add the audible version.

If I go here, I can pay 6.99 for the Kindle version which lets me add on the Audible one. I see mention of the Matchbook version for 99 cents, but as far as I can tell, that's paying 99 cents after buying the print edition

We listened to 'Joyland' in a spirit of lighter fare. Sort of like King's The Colorado Kid. Since we weren't expecting a diabolical masterpiece, it was an enjoyable vacation. It's tough to do anything with a fair ground and not tread lightly since Something Wicked This Way Comes owns the lot. I saw Joyland as an homage of sorts to Bradbury. Props go the Sara Gruen's Water For Elephants since she flipped the circus motif in a new direction and a different take on death.

Best book on a circus has to be Gary Jenning's Spangle. It's a paperback at 1296 pages and worth it. There's an audio version available but it's worse than terrible quality. It sounds as though it was recorded years ago. The narrator is fine but it's from cassettes that were in bad shape.
