The Tattooist of Auschwitz

A Novel
By Heather Morris
Narrated by Richard Armitage /  7 hours 25 minutes

The Tattooist of Auschwitz

“I devoured The Tattooist of Auschwitz, a powerful book based on a true story, in two sittings. Lale, a Slovakian Jew at Auschwitz-Birkenau, becomes the Tatowierer—the man responsible for tattooing every prisoner who arrives at the concentration camp. Seen by some as a collaborator, Lale must make impossible choices to keep himself and his friends alive. Incredibly, Lale tattoos the woman who will become the love of his life. The power of their love in the face of unmitigated horror makes for one of the most compelling WWII books I have ever read.”

Washington Black

A novel
By Esi Edugyan
Narrated by Dion Graham /  12 hours 18 minutes

Washington Black

“Epic in scope, ranging from a brutal slave plantation in Barbados to scenes in the Arctic, antebellum America, and London, plus a thoughtful denouement in the Moroccan desert, Edugyan’s novel explores the complex relationship between slave and master, the hubris of good intentions, and the tense life of a runaway in constant flight with a Javert on his tail. What results is a compulsive page-turner blessed with effortless prose. Highly recommended.”

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

“Imagine the Trojan War through the eyes of a woman. Would Achilles still be mighty or King Agamemnon so commanding? In "The Silence of the Girls," Pat Barker dares to conquer the re-telling of this tragic tale through Briseis, once Queen of Lyrnessus. Devastated by the destruction of her family at the hands of Achilles, Briseis is claimed as a prize for his pleasure and forced to servitude in the Greek camp. When the camp is cursed and pestilence soon follows, Briseis quickly becomes a pawn between Achilles and King Agamemnon with deadly consequences. Mythology lovers, take note. Barker’s twist on “The Iliad” is outstanding. In fact, it’s epic. I loved every page!”

Transcription

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

Transcription

“In Transcription, Kate Atkinson brings the past of mid-20th-century Britian so thoroughly to life that she almost seems to be reporting rather than inventing. Her details are so rich and her hand so certain that, as readers, we are there — we are walking those streets, sitting in those smoky rooms. And, most of all, we are completely caught up in the emotional power of the tensions and fears of that past. With Juliet Armstrong, Atkinson has given us a remarkable addition to the canon of British spies.”
