Nick's Picks

Hey! I'm the Creative Director here at Libro.fm. I have wildly varying tastes. For example, you can sometimes see me zooming around the Pacific Northwest on either my pristine Italian scooter or my classic American car. As you'll see below, my taste in audiobooks are just as diverse. I read (and listen to!) everything to 1950s-era sci-fi to modern YA.

The River

A novel

By Peter Heller
Narrated by: Mark Deakins
Length: 7 hours 17 minutes

The River

“Peter Heller can take you on a journey through nature like no other writer. The River is the story of two close friends wanting nothing more than to enjoy their time together on a trip through the Canadian wilderness, and fly fishing has never been so beautifully portrayed nor has the serenity of water and nature. But the peacefulness slowly wanes and the tension begins to build as the trip becomes a race against encroaching forest fires and an attempt to save the life of the mysterious woman they have picked up along the way. Heller has created a story of friendship and survival that should not be missed.”

Monk & Robot: Book #1

By Becky Chambers
Narrated by: Emmett Grosland
Length: 4 hours 8 minutes

A Psalm for the Wild-Built

“Never have we needed Becky Chambers' "hopepunk," sci-fi self-care visions of the future more than now. Part hilarious odd-couple road-trip, part soulful parable for a lost and battered world, A Psalm for the Wild-Built brings all the warmth, comfort, and elusive wisdom of a steaming mug of tea poured by someone who loves you. Take a deep breath, relax your shoulders, and drink it all in.”

Uncanny Valley

A Memoir

By Anna Wiener
Narrated by: Suehyla El-Attar
Length: 8 hours 44 minutes

Uncanny Valley

“Like Joan Didion or Renata Adler, Ben Lerner or Sally Rooney, Anna Wiener writes with dead-on specificity, scalpel-sharp analysis, deep sensitivity, and an eye for the absurd. She headed west into the modern gold rush that is the tech boom and now returns with gleaming ingots of insight, weaving tales of a strange land where boy-CEOs ride ripsticks and hoover up your data. An essential and very human look at the forces shaping who we are and how we behave.”

How High We Go in the Dark

A Novel

By Sequoia Nagamatsu

Length: 9 hours 20 minutes

If you enjoyed Black Sun, then you’ll love How High We Go in the Dark.

“I think I've already found my favorite release for 2022! This dystopian multi perspective scifi book is expertly woven. We jump through time and from character to character experiencing a terrifying pandemic and end of days. Though reading about a pandemic in midst of pandemic seems daunting, Nagamatsu managed to create a heartfelt and intriguing saga that manages to elicit all of your emotions in a short 256 pages. In audiobook format, a different narrator takes on each chapter but little mentions keep each additional perspective rooted to each other and the full cast brings you on a mind-blowing journey. I don't know how he does it but by the end, Nagamatsu somehow ties everything up in a truly magical and breathtaking way that has you questioning if he is the next, great voice of our generation.”

The Guncle

By Steven Rowley
Narrated by: Steven Rowley
Length: 11 hours 23 minutes

The Guncle

“Absolutely adored this. I laughed so hard while also feeling moved by the characters navigating grief associated with losing a mother / sister-in-law/best friend. Rowley plays with expectations surrounding grief – to be sad, to mourn, not to laugh – and the need for joy, survival, and life after loss. "Gup" (Gay Uncle Patrick) imparts his wisdom and flamboyant way to see the world upon his niece and nephew trying to help them start to heal without fearing the world. While these kids turn his bachelor life on its head, filling his house with endless questions, Christmas in July, and SO MUCH sunscreen, this disruption may be exactly what he needs. Great book addressing grief and loss without being sad.”
