The Silence of the Girls

A Novel
By Pat Barker
Narrated by Kristin Atherton & Michael Fox /  10 hours 44 minutes

The Silence of the Girls

“The women in Homer’s Iliad hardly ever speak; we are not privy to their thoughts, feelings, or anguish as expressed in their own words. Until now. The Silence of the Girls depicts moments of the Trojan War through the eyes of the female captives at the mercy of the men who have slaughtered their husbands, fathers, brothers, and sons, as they carve out new lives in the wake of war’s devastation. The focus of Barker’s novel is Briseis, through whose eyes we see, up close, the rift between Agamemnon and Achilles, the bond between Achilles and Patroclus, and the complex, beautiful support system the captured women weave together. Barker’s novel is a masterpiece of resilience, determination, fury, healing, and complicated, completely human characters.”

Wild Fire

A Shetland Island Mystery
Shetland Island Mysteries: Book #8
By Ann Cleeves
Narrated by Kenny Blyth /  10 hours 44 minutes

Wild Fire

“Wild Fire is the 8th book in the Jimmy Perez Shetland Island mystery series. Though I am a fan of the BBC/PBS show, this was the first book that I read. Wonderful depiction of insular island life, strong character development and a plot with twists and turns. What the characters are saying and what they leave out is important too for some personal situations. I listened to the audiobook on Libro.fm.”

A Novel
By Kate Atkinson
Narrated by Fenella Woolgar /  11 hours 9 minutes

Transcription

“While World War II isn’t my usual era of interest, Juliet’s hilarious inner monologue about everything that happens around her won me over. There is espionage and intrigue, and twists and turns emerge where you least expect them. I can see the 1940s so clearly, thanks to Atkinson’s fantastic writing. This is a book that will be a hit for a lot of different kinds of readers: people who like historical fiction, mystery, or literary fiction.”

A Noise Downstairs

A Novel
By Linwood Barclay
Narrated by George Newbern /  9 hours 8 minutes

A Noise Downstairs

“If you’re looking for a wild ride, look no further, because you’re not going to get wilder than A Noise Downstairs. For a book that seems to have a little of everything — unresolved trauma, untrustworthy characters, a mysterious typewriter, and a hefty dose of the paranormal — Barclay tells his story with a smooth ease that will pull you through the pages at a breakneck speed. And, well, no spoilers, but the ending will blow your socks clean off.”

My Year of Rest and Relaxation

By Ottessa Moshfegh
Narrated by Julia Whelan /  7 hours 14 minutes

My Year of Rest and Relaxation

“At first, My Year of Rest and Relaxation feels like the end of something, like a novel about the end of someone’s life. But Moshfegh has a way of affirming life unlike any other author. Repercussions of grief, emotional exhaustion, and the general anchors of life hurl a young woman into the warm embrace of the idea of hibernating for a year. Of course, this cannot be so simply done. In true Moshfegh fashion, this journey is brimming with laconic humor, her brand of ne’er-do-wells, and ample substance intake, which all lead to one of the most existentially satisfying reads in recent memory.  ”

Spinning Silver

A Novel
By Naomi Novik
Narrated by Lisa Flanagan /  17 hours 56 minutes

Spinning Silver

“When Miryem takes over the family money-lender business from her unsuccessful father, her family's fortune finally starts looking up. However, her reputation for turning silver to gold catches the notice of the feared Staryk (magical ice-beings) who come to test her claim. Meanwhile, a duke plots to marry his daughter to Tsar Mirnatius, who is trapped by a deadly secret. When the girls cross paths, chaos ensues and no one is what they appear. Every moment is action packed and engrossing. Novak does so well weaving the multiple story lines into the novel and showing how a first impression is not always accurate.”
