Listening Still

A Novel

By Anne Griffin
Narrated by: Nicola Coughlan
Length: 10 hours 3 minutes

If you enjoyed When All Is Said, then you’ll love Listening Still.

“A family of Irish undertakers can speak with the dead, and Jeanie Masterson isn't sure if it is a gift or a curse. With all of the humor and heartbreak you might expect from hearing the final thoughts of strangers, this is ultimately a story about living well. Listening Still is beautifully narrated by the fabulous Nicola Coughlan (Derry Girls, Bridgerton). You'll hang on every lilting word."”

Anxious People

By Fredrik Backman
Narrated by: Marin Ireland
Length: 9 hours 53 minutes

Anxious People

“This book made me feel all the feels! It was sad, it was funny, it was hopeful, it was everything. The character development is incredible at revealing what’s inside each of the characters, and the way their stories link and interconnect is genius. It’s a story about sadness and hope and human connections. I couldn’t put it down and barreled to the end, but now I am sad it’s over. Anxious People is truly the best thing I’ve read in a long time!”

The Funny Thing About Norman Foreman

By Julietta Henderson
Narrated by: Katherine Parkinson
Length: 9 hours 10 minutes

If you enjoyed Good Eggs, then you’ll love The Funny Thing About Norman Foreman.

“I'm so glad I listened to this book. The story, about a young boy who suffers from eczema, loses a best friend, doesn't know his dad and is struggling to help his poor mom get by while trying to perfect his comedy routine for "The Fringe" is sweet, funny and sincere. I love audiobooks read by those with British and Irish accents, and the audio performance makes the book feel even more charming and personal. There is a heaviness to the book -- it's not always an easy story to get through -- there are a few gut punches. But, they are well-delivered and beautifully handled. It's hard to imagine not enjoying this book and loving little Norman Foreman.”

When All Is Said

A Novel

By Anne Griffin
Narrated by: Niall Buggy
Length: 8 hours 4 minutes

When All Is Said

“Dark and unflinching yet packed with heart and humanity, When All Is Said is Irish storytelling at its best. Maurice Hannigan sits in a bar on a Saturday night and toasts five people who have been important in his life and who have left him, either through death or distance. The 84-year-old widower spools out his story like tangled fishing line, raising one glass to each of his departed loved ones. It all leads up to a startling yet inevitable end to an unsettling yet satisfying story.”

Mr. Dickens and His Carol

A Novel

By Samantha Silva
Narrated by: Euan Morton
Length: 8 hours 8 minutes

Mr. Dickens and His Carol

“Full of fantastic period detail and delightful prose, Mr. Dickens and His Carol is a wonderful companion to the enduring holiday classic A Christmas Carol. A month before Christmas, Charles Dickens is informed that his latest serial is a failure and he must produce a holiday story in one month's time or pay back his publishers for their losses. Beleaguered by his demanding relatives and expectant children, Dickens turns churlish and is unable to find any Christmas left within him to produce a fitting book. Fate intervenes when a mysterious woman crosses his path and becomes his much-needed muse, sending Dickens on a journey of inward reflection and reminding him not only of the joys of the season but how his cherished works are a gift for everyone who reads them.”
