Length: 7 hours 24 minutes

“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... Read more

As Kidd is writing Ana’s story, Ana herself is writing the... Read more

Klara and the Sun

A Novel

By: Kazuo Ishiguro
Narrated by: Sura Siu
Length: 10 hours 16 minutes

Klara and the Sun is a parable, a warning, a neatly-crafted story that fits into an Artificial Friend-sized box, which—make no mistake—is not to say that it’s ordinary. Ishiguro explores the ethics of creating artificial intelligence that’s indistinguishable from humans, at least ideally. But Klara and her owner, Josie, are kindred spirits... Read more

The Dharma Bums

By: Jack Kerouac
Narrated by: Ethan Hawke
Length: 7 hours 16 minutes

“ This book is one of those works where it's even better read aloud, the rhythm of the words lending itself well to the narrative. You feel the rhythm of the train cars that Smith hitches rides on, you feel the pulse of the parties where they drink and discuss philosophy until dawn, and you're struck especially by the poetry, which hits much...

Calypso

By: David Sedaris
