The Dutch House

A Novel
By Ann Patchett
Narrated by Tom Hanks /  9 hours 52 minutes

The Dutch House

“Meeting the Conroy family and stepping into their elaborate Dutch house—part museum, part home, with all its secrets and charm, comfort and sadness—enthralled me as the mystery unfolded like a gentle call to arms. From poverty to wealth and from wealth to poverty, we see through Danny’s eyes the struggle to hold the family together against grief, greed, and the heartbreak of losing all that once bound them. Patchett paints a masterpiece here; there’s no looking away. It lingers in your imagination long after the story has been told.”

There There

A novel
By Tommy Orange
Narrated by Darrell Dennis, Shaun Taylor-Corbett, Alma Cuervo & Kyla Garcia /  7 hours 59 minutes

There There

“Heartbreaking and necessary, this book is raw, powerful, and storytelling at its finest. It's a woven tapestry of the urban Indian experience as few outside these communities have seen it. Vignettes follow 12 people through time and space as they make their way to the Big Oakland Powwow. Each person has their own struggles with identity, life, the powwow; with living, loving, addiction, and employment; with heart and soul and happiness and everything else that makes up the complicated human story, but most especially the complex Indian experience in America. This debut novel was longlisted for the National Book Award for Fiction. ”

Women Talking

By Miriam Toews
Narrated by Matthew Edison /  5 hours 57 minutes

Women Talking

“This powerful, slim novel is based on a real story of a town of deeply religious families who find that their women are being preyed on by a group of the village men. The women (and girls) finally speak out and the men are "arrested" by the locals but only after one of the women attempts to harm the men are the actual authorities contacted. The village men (who are not implicated) get together to post the bail for the offending men and announce that the women must forgive the rapists. The women meet to decide how they will react, asking the local teacher to write their words down as they are unable to read or write themselves. The discussion is lively and both heartbreaking and heartwarming. This audio will linger with you long after you've finished the last sentence...”

Ask Again, Yes

A Novel
By Mary Beth Keane
Narrated by Molly Pope /  12 hours 42 minutes

Ask Again, Yes

“"Love is only part of the story" is a quote taken from one of the last pages of "Yes, Again Yes." Love may be just a fraction of this fabulous novel but it is also the thread that weaves this heartbreaking tale together. The novel centers around two families who are next-door neighbors. The patriarchs are policemen. The families are not friends due to one of the family member's mental illness. However, there is a deep friendship that develops between the teenage daughter and son. An unthinkable tragedy occurs and one of the families moves away. "Yes, Again Yes" explores life, love, family ties, tragedy, heartbreak, mental illness and the strong power fo love. I enjoyed every moment of this moving novel and highly recommend it. The narration is well-done.”

On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous

A Novel
By Ocean Vuong
Narrated by Ocean Vuong /  7 hours 18 minutes

On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous

“Alright 2019, this is the novel to beat. On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous is the rare novel that makes you experience reading in a slightly different way and shows you that, no matter how many books you’ve read, something new and uniquely beautiful can still be found. The novel takes the form of a letter written by the main character, Little Dog, to his mother — an immigrant from Vietnam who cannot read. The power of Vuong’s poetic writing shimmers with every paragraph, and each phrase is a carefully considered, emotional journey. Grappling with themes of identity, sexuality, addiction, violence, and finding your place in a world where you feel you don’t belong, this book already feels like a modern classic, destined to be read and talked about for years to come.”
