Born a Cime .
Seabiscuit, Destiny of the Republic
Harry Potter series
11/22/63 by Stephen King. I have over 700 audible books and that one beats them all.
Gabe Harmon already did this one and agree!!!
YOU by Caroline Kepnes
Just can’t do them- tried a few. Anyone know one that will convert me?
@Liz Stephen King reading his own stuff… Sherlock Holmes read by Derek Jacobi…..just terrific.
@Liz I can’t either but I was also the kid who hated when the teacher read a chapter a day out loud to the class during snack time. Everyone would get upset that she was stopping and I was always like “thank God that’s over- I don’t even have a clue what’s going on in this story!” ?
@Liz anything by Neil Gaiman! I love listening to him!
@Jennaagreed and even worse if it was a student- apart from me ?
@Liz Harry Potter Series will take you into another world!! Got my husband hooked this way!
I can’t either BUT the one and only I’ve ever done and laughed the entire way trough was Born A Crime. Funny and educational. I promise you will love it.
@Beqi especially full cast version of The Graveyard Book. Neil Gaiman’s character in that one is great!
David Sedaris audio books.
I’m enjoying the Mackenzi Lee audio books. Both books have had amazing narrators.
All books by Sophie Kinsella
David Sedaris’ Holidays on Ice.
The Gold Coast and the sequel The Gate House by Nelson DeMille, read by Christian Rummel and A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles, read by Nicholas Guy Smith
Sapiens to Yuval Noah Harari.
The Talisman Ring by Georgette Heyer read by Phyllids Nash. Absolutely hilsrioud.
I really enjoyed Pieces by Sally Field
@Lorene is that read by Sally Field ?
@Kathy yes! And it’s like your having a conversation with her! She is one of my favorite actors!
The Dark is Rising. My sons and I listened to it on a trip to the beach and after a long drive we literally sat in the car in our own driveway to hear the end.
@Lucinda we’ve done that. It’s a 3 hour drive to our cabin up north. We’ve sat in the car to finish a book many times before we start unloading. Once it was midnight…we sat in the car, in the dark, to finish The Adoration of Jenna Fox. Great memories!
Ready Player One
Ready Player One!!!
Beloved read by Toni Morrison
Born a Crime by Trevor Noah and now I am listening to Ready Player One by Ernest Cline and I’m enjoying it so far.
There are some books I prefer as audio – funny books read by their (funny) authors. Born a Crime by Trevor Noah; Bossypants by Tina Fey; Yes, Please by Amy Poehler; ANYTHING by David Sedaris
Can’t choose just one ?. I loved the narration and story for Goodbye For Now and Ready Player One. I loved the special effects in The Last Jedi. Apt Pupil was one of a very few that gave me chills. Yes Please and Wishful Drinking made me seriously laugh out loud. Columbine was tragic, but so well done.
Oh don’t make me pick just one!!
@Julie list top 5????
Hm, I’ll list several but it really depends on what you’re in the mood for: I love lyrical listens like Some Sing, Some Cry by Ntozake Shange and her sister Ifa Bayeza, narrated by Robin Miles; Diana Gabaldon’s epic series narrated by Davina Porter; anything of Neil Gaiman’s (he usually reads his own work); sometimes I’m just in the mood for Humphrey Bower’s lovely Australian accent reading something from Bryce Courtenay (with the mix of Chinese, Aboriginal, Mowrie, and European names it’s nice not to stumble over mental pronunciation every few minutes!); at other times I crave the straight forward dryness of Dick Hill – whether reading fantasy from Anne McCafrey or a Jack Reacher mystery from Lee Child.
Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich, the Eve Dallas “death” series by JD Robb
The law of attraction by Esther and Jerry Hicks
Believe it or not, I’ve never listened to an audio book.
Recently I do most of my “reading” with audio books. I finished Becoming by Michelle Obama a couple of days ago, read by her. Loved it.
I love listening to books that are read by the authors 🙂
@Freyja I just started and already love it.
Beartown, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine,East of Eden, The Life We Bury, A Man Called Ove, Born a Crime.
The Number One Ladies Detective series by Alexander McCall Smith.
I love the Stone Barrington series by Stuart Woods and the John Sanford “Prey” series and. Virgil Flowers series
Never listened to one
Harry Potter books are great audiobooks.
The Pillars of the Earth was life changing for me. Such a masterpiece and so well done on audiobook.
Right now it’s Becoming by Michelle Obama. Before her I would have said Astrophysics for people in a hurry. NDG has the best voice.
@Mariana I would never have picked up Astrophysics but now I’m going to check it out. I also love his voice. Thanks for the tip ?
The Harry Potter series read by Jim Dale!
One Good Mama Bone by @Bren. Narrated beautifully by the author. If you like Southern Fiction you will love this book. And if you’re not sure if you’d like southern fiction you will after reading this one. <3
