Unbreak Me

By Michelle Hazen
Narrated by: Adenrele Ojo
Length: 11 hours

Unbreak Me

“I often avoid books that deal with political and social issues, I read to escape the real world not to face it, I have the morning news for that... That being said, Michelle Hazen did an amazing job at bringing social issues to the front without making me feel like I was reading portion of the news. This was AMAZING! The narrator did a fantastic job, so much so I would happily have her narrate every darn book I listen to EVER! Specially if she is talking like LJ. I mean... can you fall in love with a narrators voice? or is that just too weird?! Ok, fine, I am weird... :) LJ Delisle was charismatic, charming, big hearted... It was impossible not to fall for the guy. He took his time with Andra, he didn't rush her. He did everything right from beginning to end. Andra was charming in her own right. Although both have a sad past to deal with hers is a little more pronounced as it affects her mental health. I felt for her, and I was proud of her in the end.”

Little Weirds

By Jenny Slate
Narrated by: Jenny Slate
Length: 4 hours 19 minutes

Little Weirds

“Little lovely weirds from the big, lovely, weirdness of Jenny Slate's brain. I am recommending that you get both a physical copy to beautify your shelves and the audiobook so that Slate can croon her little weirds into your ears and that way your hands are free for snacking or petting the dog or arranging acorns on your mantle. You will laugh and sigh and wish her words could bring things to life because she is, after all, a magical person so it should be a thing she can do. And who knows? Maybe she will. ”

Vacationland

True Stories from Painful Beaches

By John Hodgman
Narrated by: John Hodgman
Length: 5 hours 23 minutes

Vacationland

“If you're already a fan of John Hodgman, then you know what to expect from Vacationland: wit that veers from gentle to biting, poignancy and hilarity, clear-eyed self-examination, peevishness and compassion. If you're new to his work, then you're in for a treat. Hodgman's newest book, based on material from his comedy tour of the same name, is hilarious, heartbreaking and charming. And the audiobook is an extra treat. Hodgman knows when he's being funny and when he's not, and his delivery and comic timing is never lacking. Enjoy Vacationland on your next road trip!”

Talking to Strangers

What We Should Know about the People We Don't Know

By Malcolm Gladwell
Narrated by: Malcolm Gladwell
Length: 8 hours 42 minutes

Talking to Strangers

“Fascinating! How and why we so frequently misinterpret the words, intentions, and sincerity of strangers. Computers, analyzing only information, are far better at judging someone’s guilt or innocence (and future behavior) than judges, psychologists, and witnesses. Based on our preconceptions of how people should behave in certain situations, the guilty often appear innocent and the innocent look like cold-hearted liars. They’re mismatched. Their outer reactions, facial expressions, and behavior don’t match our socially biased expectations. But wait, how do culture, alcohol, or surroundings further muck up our interactions? That’s just the tip of this Gladwellian iceberg.”
