Elevation

By Stephen King
Narrated by: Stephen King
Length: 3 hours 46 minutes

Elevation

“Elevation is the brand new novella from master storyteller Stephen King. The author reads this audiobook, and the purchase of this audiobook includes the short story Laurie, which is unavailable in book form. Elevation tells the story of Scott Carey and his neighbors in Castle Rock. Scott catches his neighbors' dogs doing their business on his yard, and he confronts them. The dogs' owners are a lesbian couple, and the three get off to a rough start. As the story develops, the three bond, and the listener is left with a story that is uplifting, a tale of friendship and acceptance. Not what you may expect from Stephen King, but he isn't just a horror author. Highly recommended.”

Nothing to See Here

By Kevin Wilson
Narrated by: Marin Ireland
Length: 6 hours 40 minutes

Nothing to See Here

“This book was meant to be heard! Wilson creates a narrative in a world so sarcastic and colorful that I would taste cherry cool-aid long after I stopped reading. Flash to me doubled over in my car laughing or sobbing or both at the same time. I actually started to look forward to my hour-long commute every morning just so I could spend time with these characters... I also might have adopted a sassy southern accent for a good twenty minutes post-listening. I adore this book with all my heart.”

Red at the Bone

“How did she manage to create this gorgeous family saga in less than 200 pages? Told through a chorus of five different voices, family members fill in the puzzle of their lives piece by piece and generation by generation. Told out of sequence, we learn how these lives intersected, arrived in Brooklyn, and navigated their way through the racial complexities of the 20th and 21st centuries. We experience how they face timeless issues of family, love, identity, race, and class. The poetic language along with full audio cast makes for a moving and spell-binding listen.”
