Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine

A Novel

By Gail Honeyman
Narrated by: Cathleen McCarron
Length: 11 hours 1 minutes

Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine

“Eleanor Oliphant has quickly become one of my favorite fictional characters, and this novel one of my favorite books. Eleanor is completely original and the right kind of weird. Her life and her past, combined with such kindhearted characters, made for a compulsively readable, heartwarming story that I did not want to put down. I can't wait for this book to come out so many more can fall in love with Eleanor. Highly, highly recommended.”

By Imbolo Mbue
Narrated by: Prentice Onayemi
Length: 12 hours 13 minutes

Behold the Dreamers (Oprah's Book Club)

“This might be the best audiobook I've ever listened to. It's definitely the one I recommend the very most. Prentice Onayem does such a delicious job of showcasing the beautiful nuance of different voices and accents and the production inserts just enough music to make sure that the audience is able to really feel immersed into the story. There's no heavyhandedness at all. It's all so brilliantly done.”

Ready Player One

“If you are at all into video games or the 1980's you are going to love Ready Player One.

Inside the Oasis you can travel from planet to planet, go to school and live out your wildest dreams.

Lincoln in the Bardo

A Novel

By George Saunders
Narrated by: George Saunders, Nick Offerman, David Sedaris, Carrie Brownstein, Don Cheadle, Lena Dunham, Bill Hader, Kirby Heyborne, Keegan-Michael Key, Julianne Moore, Megan Mullally, Susan Sarandon, Ben Stiller & Various
Length: 7 hours 24 minutes

Lincoln in the Bardo

“Saunders' first novel has a steep entry curve. It's not a novel that reveals itself quickly and easily, but if you give it your attention, if you burrow deep into the book, you'll be eminently rewarded. There is a richness and depth of humanity here. There is the strange and wonderful. There is love and grief and mystery all brought together in the story of Abraham Lincoln's dead son, the Civil War, and what may happen to us all after we leave the mortal coil. It's a beautiful and moving book that will stay with you for a long, long while.”

A Gentleman in Moscow

A Novel

By Amor Towles
Narrated by: Nicholas Guy Smith
Length: 17 hours 51 minutes

A Gentleman in Moscow

“Through Count Alexander Ilyich Rostov's ordinary encounters and activities within the bounds of the four walls of post-revolutionary Moscow's Metropol Hotel, where he is under house arrest, Towles deftly guides readers across a century of Russian history, from the Bolshevik uprising to the dawn of the nuclear age under Krushchev. Grandiloquent language and drama reminiscent of Tolstoy gradually give way to action and tradecraft suggestive of le Carre in this lovely and entertaining tale of one man's determination to maintain his dignity and passion for life, even after being stripped of his title, belongings, and freedom. Reading A Gentleman in Moscow is pure pleasure!”

The Night Circus

By Erin Morgenstern
Narrated by: Jim Dale
Length: 13 hours 38 minutes

If you enjoyed Spoonbenders, then you’ll love The Night Circus.

“A modern classic and the book that dragged me back into the magical realism genre. I've listened to this book multiple times and still enjoy it on the umpteenth time around. Morgenstern captures that same wonder that you remember from whimsical children's fantasy, but matures it into a complex and emotional tale.”
