#1: The Fifth Season

The Broken Earth: Book #1
By N. K. Jemisin
Narrated by Robin Miles /  15 hours 27 minutes

The Fifth Season

“The Fifth Season is an amazing, dark, and gripping work that will hook you from the first sentence. I cannot express to you how much this book stunned me. Robin's narration is well paced and engaging. While I wish this was a book for everyone to listen to, it isn't; destruction, trauma, and rage follow the women and girls who tell their stories. This book is about the end of the world, that you actually don't want to stop reading.”

By Rivers Solomon, Daveed Diggs, William Hutson & Jonathan Snipes
4 hours 1 minute

The Deep

“This book is haunting in the best possible way. I felt so keenly for Yetu, for the Wajinru and their histories, it gave me chills. Daveed Dig's narration was a well-matched piece in an already incredible project. I'm so glad this little novella came to be written so that I might share it.”

#5: Ready Player One

By Ernest Cline
Narrated by Wil Wheaton /  15 hours 39 minutes

Ready Player One

“If you are at all into video games or the 1980's you are going to love Ready Player One. In a future where people often prefer to live in virtual reality than the real world, the man who invented The Oasis is one of the most famous people in the world. Inside the Oasis you can travel from planet to planet, go to school and live out your wildest dreams. But when he dies and leaves his fortune to whoever can find his "easter egg" hidden inside The Oasis - the challenge begins. I'm not even a huge fan of video games and thought this book was a lot of fun. I listened to the audio book read by Wil Wheaton which was great.”

#10: The Warehouse

A Novel
By Rob Hart
13 hours 8 minutes

The Warehouse

“This is one of those way-too-close-to-reality-for-comfort books. In a very near future, local economies have been all but obliterated by Cloud, a company that you'll recognize as bearing a striking resemblance to a contemporary online mega-retailer. Jobs at this company are highly sought after. Employees live where they work, in MotherCloud communities, where they are subject to low wages, sub-par living conditions, and the often misguided social theories of the company's folksy, faux-everyman founder. But the company has secrets that will bring it down from the inside, with the help of two very different employees. It's up to all of us to keep this vision of the future from coming to pass. If you buy just one audiobook from an independent bookstore this year, make it this one.”

#19: Hollow Kingdom

By Kira Jane Buxton
10 hours 10 minutes

Hollow Kingdom

“We need more heroes like S.T. — a foul-mouthed, idealistic, moral crow with unquenchable courage — and his sidekick, a befuddled bloodhound. Kira Jane Buxton speaks crow, gull, dog, housecat, and owl with such fluency and poetry that I could not put this book down. Her vision of the zombie apocalypse is a strange and wonderful journey I want to take again and again. I really can’t think of another current novel that conveys such humor, joy, sorrow, and hope so beautifully. Thank you for restoring my faith that this world may live on.”

#20: Severance

A Novel
By Ling Ma
9 hours 53 minutes

Severance

“A disaffected young woman just scraping by in the big city. A rag-tag group of survivors on a journey through a post-apocalyptic landscape. These are familiar tropes in contemporary fiction (albeit not usually in the same novel). But with Ling Ma's steely-eyed, wry treatment, they grow into something far more complex. In an alternate 2011, Shen Fever, a global pandemic, causes "a fatal loss of consciousness" in those infected. "The Fevered" forget to eat or drink or sleep, but instead get caught in a seeming zombie-like loop of muscle memory: a housewife sets the table for dinner over and over again; a taxi driver drives around the city until he runs out of gas; a young woman tries on all of the clothes in her closet in an endless loop. This post-apocalyptic world is woven with flashbacks of pandemic-survivor Candace Chen's pre-apocalypse life in New York, where a job she doesn't even like becomes the anchor of her identity such that she will seemingly do anything in order to continue to do it, even after she's the last survivor at her company. The question that lingers: is the rote repetition of our lives the very essence of who we are? And how far will we go to preserve that facade of living? Severance is a beautifully spare and wryly funny novel, by a huge new talent. ”

#24: Moon of the Crusted Snow

A Novel
By Waubgeshig Rice
Narrated by Billy Merasty /  6 hours 46 minutes

Moon of the Crusted Snow

“Highly recommend this audiobook of Moon Of The Crusted Snow. Narrator Billy Merasty brings Rice's characters to life and enriches the traditional Anishinaabe stories with his lyrical storytelling voice. The story itself, of a Canadian Anishinaabe band forced to contend with a new reality when the power goes out and deliveries halt to their Reserve just as winter sets in, is gripping and shockingly realistic and a damning take on reservation life. Evan Whitesky—father, husband, and one of the young leaders—has been learning traditional ways so he's better equipped to hunt and forage than other members of the band who've come to rely on video games and other modern trappings for survival and entertainment. Just as it becomes clear that the power outage is widespread and likely the result of some catastrophic event, a menacing stranger arrives, threatening the band's unity and possibly its very survival. Completely immersive.”

#27: American War

A novel
By Omar El Akkad
Narrated by Dion Graham /  12 hours 21 minutes

American War

“Omar El Akkad has delivered a stunning debut. He imagines a world in a not-too-distant future where Americans are at war with each other once again. The characters in this story are fully developed and individual, yet their histories - their stories - extend into the histories of all those displaced and affected by the forces of war. The title, American War, is a shape-shifter. At once, it means that America is again at war, but at times reflects the ways in which the true, actual wars that America has perpetrated on Earth have affected the lives of millions of people. This will be one of the most discussed books of the year, and I cannot wait to put it in the hands of all readers looking to be changed.”

#33: The Book of M

A Novel
By Peng Shepherd
Narrated by James Fouhey & Emily Woo Zeller /  17 hours 6 minutes

The Book of M

“Peng Shepherd’s The Book of M is as mysterious as it is fantastical. Beginning in India before spreading worldwide, almost like a magical epidemic, people are suddenly losing their shadows. For those that do, it always follows that they begin to forget. Whether slowly or rapidly, the forgetting always befalls those who have become “shadowless.” And in this new world of forgetting and mis-remembering, the natural world also goes under a metamorphosis: giant “death kites” patrol the skies, the Statue of Liberty terrorizes all of New York, and wolves begin to speak like humans. All this and more befalls the world amid the landscape of lost memories. Chilling, heart-warming, thrilling, and mesmerizing are all the ways I would describe The Book of M. Narrators James Fouhey and Emily Woo Zeller do wonderfully for the audio book adaption. Emily is touching as the first-person narration of female character Max, while James’ handling of the third-person narrations of the rest of the cast is a remarkable feat.”

The Lightest Object in the Universe

“Instead of focusing on what is dark and terrifying like most dystopian novels, love lights the way in The Lightest Object in the Universe. Following a cataclysmic event, Beatrix is working with her neighbors to rebuild their community, while former school principal Carson travels across the country on foot to reach the woman he knows is his soul mate. Their individual stories are trying yet hopeful and celebrate the best parts of humanity. Highly recommended for book clubs and fans of dystopian literature.”

#40: Dead Astronauts

The Borne Series
By Jeff VanderMeer
Narrated by Emily Woo Zeller /  7 hours 45 minutes

Dead Astronauts

“Set in the same world as his excellent 2017 novel Borne, Dead Astronauts finds VanderMeer again at the top of his game exploring a universe destroyed by the nefarious Company. Delightful strangeness abounds: a man disintegrating into hundreds of salamanders, an ancient giant fish called Leviathan, a large blue fox with a message to deliver across time — all these and more make Dead Astronauts one of VanderMeer’s most engagingly strange and beguiling novels. As he continues to explore deeply environmental themes, his unique lens makes the reader ponder our current climate crisis in a new way. A wonderfully weird, nature-driven science fiction odyssey through time and space.”

#41: The Resisters

A novel
By Gish Jen
8 hours 50 minutes

The Resisters

“I finished The Resisters in a day. I don’t know how a book can be so devastating yet so miraculously wonderful at the same time. I was completely captivated by the family whose story Jen tells. The world she creates — set in near-future AutoAmerica — is so believable an outcome of what we see around us today that it feels as much prescient as imagined. A sort of cautionary tale, The Resisters is not only a book to love, it’s a book that’s important. I’m in awe.”

#45: The Dreamers

A Novel
By Karen Thompson Walker
10 hours 28 minutes

The Dreamers

“From the beginning, The Dreamers is a novel that seems all-too-possible these days. Some things unravel much as you'd expect while others are a complete surprise. As a reader I found myself wanting more details about the dreams - because they were so fascinating - but the writing is strong and makes for a well-paced story.”

#50: The Gone World

By Tom Sweterlitsch
13 hours 37 minutes

The Gone World

“Shannon Moss is a member of Naval Criminal Investigative Services (NCIS), but she is from a branch of the Navy few have ever heard of. Shannon is part of Naval Space Command, a clandestine organization that sails deep space and time. Shannon is on the hunt for a killer: NSC officer, Patrick Mursult, who seems to have been driven mad during his missions into deep space. But if a time traveling, deep space killer isn't enough tension for you, there is also a humanity-ending event that has been observed hundreds of years into the future: the arrival of the Terminus. The Terminus is an unknown entity that, put simply, ends all life on the planet in horrific fashion. Since the discovery of the Terminus, NSC has been trying to find a way to avoid its arrival and the subsequent end of humanity. The problem is that every time they travel to the future to observe the Terminus, it has arrived earlier and earlier. This means the clock is ticking doubly fast for Shannon Moss and the entirety of the human race. And her killer seems to be linked to the Terminus somehow. This is a time-traveling, sci-fi, horror, murder mystery for fans of Dark Matter and Annihilation. It's one of the best and strangest (and at times disturbing) rides I've been on in a while - and well worth the price of admission!”
