The Starless Sea

A Novel

By Erin Morgenstern
Narrated by: Dominic Hoffman & Various
Length: 18 hours 36 minutes

The Starless Sea

“This really felt like a love letter to librarians, booksellers, and anyone else who dedicates their life to the cultivation of books and all the secrets they contain. As always, Erin Morgenstern has the preternatural ability to sweep me away into a world where none of my real-life concerns matter. Who cares about gas prices when there’s a war being waged in a honey-sticky, steadily decaying version of Carroll’s Wonderland? The full cast narration of the audiobook only added another level to the charm of this alternate reality. If I could have anything at all, it would be to sit down and drink tea with the delightfully idiosyncratic characters of The Starless Sea.”
