Lincoln in the Bardo

A Novel

By George Saunders
Narrated by: George Saunders, Nick Offerman, David Sedaris, Carrie Brownstein, Don Cheadle, Lena Dunham, Bill Hader, Kirby Heyborne, Keegan-Michael Key, Julianne Moore, Megan Mullally, Susan Sarandon, Ben Stiller & Various
Length: 7 hours 24 minutes

Lincoln in the Bardo

“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 the story of Abraham Lincoln's dead son, the Civil War, and what may happen to us all after we leave the mortal coil. It's a beautiful and moving book that will stay with you for a long, long while.”

We're Going to Need More Wine

Stories That Are Funny, Complicated, and True

By Gabrielle Union
Narrated by: Gabrielle Union
Length: 7 hours 48 minutes

We're Going to Need More Wine

“I know what this book looks like, and it's true that it's a '90s celebrity's memoir. But the other parts of this book are so remarkable that to limit its description to that would be an injustice. Gabrielle Union is an honest writer and cultural critic. I'm ashamed I didn't know this until now. Her reflections on race, gender, and authenticity in an industry that values anything but are refreshing and ring true. These are the portions of the book that really sparkle on the page. Writer to reader, friend to friend, Union simply shares some of her stories, and I was glad to be a part.”

Murder on the Orient Express [Movie Tie-in]

A Hercule Poirot Mystery

By Agatha Christie
Narrated by: Kenneth Branagh
Length: 6 hours 12 minutes

Murder on the Orient Express [Movie Tie-in]

“Kenneth Branagh not only reprises his role of Hercule Poirot from his movie adaptation of Murder on the Orient Express, he also skillfully performs each of the characters featured in the book, bringing them and the story to life. It's like listening to a one-man play rather than just having someone narrate the book. Highly entertaining!”
