House of Names

By Colm Toibin
Narrated by: Juliet Stevenson, Charlie Anson & Pippa Nixon
Length: 8 hours 46 minutes

House of Names

“A masterful manipulation of the classic tragedy of Clytemnestra, queen of Mycenae, Colm Toibin’s House of Names is retelling the story of the House of Atreus and her husband, King Agamemnon. Bursting with rage at the betrayal at the hands of Agamemnon, Clytemnestra orchestrates a murderous plot to avenge the death of daughter Iphigenia, slaughtered in sacrifice to supplicate the gods. Upon his victorious return, an unknowing Agamemnon finds himself ensnared in a trap, facing a kingdom full of deceitful families, ready for vengeance and demanding justice for all the ills suffered since his sojourn to fight the Trojan War. I adored Toibin’s beautifully written adaptation of The Orestia by Aeschylus and his prose is promised to please all lovers of the classics.”

See You in the Cosmos

By Jack Cheng
Narrated by: Kivlighan de Montebello, Brittany Pressley, Thérèse Plummer, Graham Halstead, Michael Crouch, Jason Culp, Susan Bennett, Dan Bittner, Pete Larkin & Courtney Shaw
Length: 6 hours 10 minutes

See You in the Cosmos

“Meet Alex, a space obsessed almost 12 year old who has been recording sounds and conversations on his golden iPod to send into space so aliens can know what it’s like here on earth. He’s done his research, has met a bunch of similarly rocket obsessed friends via an online rocket forum and has determined that the place to send his golden iPod into space is at a rocket festival one state away from his home. Alex has his clothes and tent packed, his AmTrak ticket in hand and his dog, Carl Sagan (named for Alex’s hero), by his side as they set off on an epic road trip adventure to the rocket festival on a quest to communicate with outer space, search for the truth and try to be brave.Sounds like a great family road trip, right? Well, not quite. Because from the beginning of See You in the Cosmos, you notice some things are amiss with Alex’s family and quickly realize that Alex and Carl Sagan are on their own on this adventure. The fact that no one is traveling with or following Alex is a big part of the secrets that Alex uncovers about his family along the way. Each chapter is written as a new sound recording on his iPod. The format is like a play script in that other characters and sounds appear in the storyline. Alex is a delightful narrator of his story and he is full of big questions—not just about space but about his father who died, about his mom and where she goes on her long walks, and about how a kid like him can learn to be brave. He loves space and obviously has a great knowledge of it. He is sweet and kind and has a place in his heart for people—and his dog. There are serious themes in this book but the sound recording format and Alex’s innocence and exuberance keep the heaviness in check. Alex’s story opens up many opportunities for readers to discuss the weighty topics raised in this story. If you are heading out on your own epic family road trip, do check out the audiobook version of See You in the Cosmos on libro.fm as it is out of this world!”

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

A Novel

By Taylor Jenkins Reid
Narrated by: Alma Cuervo, Julia Whelan & Robin Miles
Length: 12 hours 10 minutes

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

“Steeped in the glory of Hollywood when marriages were made for reasons other than love and could be slipped on and off like a fine dinner jacket, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo reveals the behind-the-scenes stories of lives full of hunger, self-pity, jealousy, and rage, as well as lost love. This is a story that could have been pulled from the pages of fan magazines of the '50s. It's so entertainingly real that you will be wondering why you can't remember the great star Evelyn Hugo and the movies she made famous. Read for pure pleasure, and you'll be tempted to play the game of, 'Who is this about, really?' What fun!”

Magpie Murders

A Novel

By Anthony Horowitz
Narrated by: Samantha Bond & Allan Corduner
Length: 15 hours 47 minutes

Magpie Murders

“Who better than the talented Anthony Horowitz to create this marvelous mystery within a mystery. Yes, we're treated to two mysteries for the price of one: One set in a peaceful village in England during the 1950s with the one and only Detective Atticus Pund taking the case, and the other set in contemporary times with a book editor who becomes an amateur sleuth. Horowitz pays tribute to the golden age of British crime with references to mysteries created by the likes of Dorothy Sayers and Agatha Christie. How many hidden gems can you come up with? A perfect book to read in a cushy chair with a cup of tea (hot or iced).”
