Cloud Cuckoo Land

A Novel

By Anthony Doerr
Narrated by: Marin Ireland & Simon Jones
Length: 14 hours 51 minutes

Cloud Cuckoo Land

“From the author of the much loved All The Light We Cannot See comes a very different and imaginative story. Doerr writes of the longevity of books and libraries and how they endure through time. Spanning from 15th century Constantinople, to present day Idaho (where he lives), to a 22nd century spaceship, one wonders how these settings and characters could possibly intersect. But, they do in surprising ways. This is my favorite book of the year. Enjoy!”

Red X

By David Demchuk
Narrated by: Salvatore Antonio & David Demchuk
Length: 9 hours 3 minutes

Red X

“Monsters stalk many of us in our dreams, and sometimes in our waking hours. For the lgbtq+ community, the monsters are very real. Centuries of homophobia and violent hatred, the AIDS crisis, and ignorance have long brought terror. Red X blends dream monsters and daylight monsters in a century-spanning tale of horror. Young men disappear without a trace, and more and more people in the lgbtq+ community become threatened and vulnerable. Weaving his own history with his fictional tale, Demchuk has created a spellbinding work where reality, fiction, and metaphor blur and blend together seamlessly and frighteningly. This is a story to listen to only in the light of day. Even then, it may stalk you in your sleep.”

Velvet Was the Night

By Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Narrated by: Gisela Chípe
Length: 9 hours 51 minutes

Velvet Was the Night

“Thoroughly entertaining. Once again, Silvia Moreno-Garcia does a wonderful job capturing the genre she is writing for. The plot, the pacing, the characters are all what they should be for good noir fiction. Add to that, the unique setting of Mexico City post Corpus Christi Massacre and during the Dirty War, and it's also educational! Excellent reading by Gisela Chipe.”

One Two Three

A Novel

By Laurie Frankel
Narrated by: Emma Galvin, Jesse Vilinsky & Rebecca Soler
Length: 14 hours 58 minutes

One Two Three

One Two Three is the story of a town destroyed by the pollution of the town’s river by a chemical plant. A plant that still has not admitted or taken responsibility for the deaths, cancers and birth defects that are higher in Bourne than anywhere else in the country. One would think this would be a very depressing read but Laurie Frankel has written a story that is funny, quirky, totally original and extremely compelling. The main characters are Nora, whose husband worked at the plant and died of cancer, and her now 16-year-old triplets Mab, Monday and Mirabel. Frankel’s portrayal of these characters is what made this book one of the best books I have read. I was amazed at how she was able to turn what should be a total downer into a sweet, funny and charming story about sisters and family and determination. The voices of the triplets will stay with me for a long, long time.”
