Black Leopard, Red Wolf

The Dark Star Trilogy: Book #1

By Marlon James
Narrated by: Dion Graham
Length: 23 hours 59 minutes

Black Leopard, Red Wolf

“If I had to pick one word to describe this book, it would be feral. James creates a fantastical Africa that invokes the violence and brutality of the old world, but wraps it in delicate layers of myth and magic that make the reader want to cozy up to the savagery in order to get a better look. The characters add to the effect, as they are mysterious enough to entice and real enough to despise. The sense of displacement and lack of certainty enforces the message that nothing and nobody in this world can be trusted, not even the self. If people want to call this the African Game of Thrones, I won’t necessarily argue, but I will say that the Tracker and his frenemies would make any of the big baddies in Westeros run for cover with their tail cut off. ”

Mexican Gothic

A Novel

By Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Narrated by: Frankie Corzo
Length: 10 hours 39 minutes

If you enjoyed The Castle of Otranto, then you’ll love Mexican Gothic.

“If what you loved about "Northanger Abbey" was its sly twist on the gothic romance, you're going to love this new setting for an old gem. Set in 1950's Mexico, it follows a capable but callous young woman who agrees to check on a cousin in exchange for tuition for a master's degree, then begins to discover what inspired the cousin's apparent descent into madness. A wealthy and controlling old man, a manipulative new husband? Yes... and also something very unpleasant to do with mushrooms. Think "The Girl With All the Gifts" meets "Stranger Things", with a clever surprise of a romance--not a Sleeping Beauty story--it's Beauty and the Beast, and the Beast is not whom you'd expect!”

Memoirs and Misinformation

A novel

By Jim Carrey & Dana Vachon
Narrated by: Jeff Daniels
Length: 7 hours 49 minutes

Memoirs and Misinformation

“Wow! What a strange trip this book is!!! Written by Jim Carey and Dana Vachon, and narrated by Jeff Daniels, Memoirs and Misinformation is a wild rollercoaster ride that takes us through Hollywood to—well I don’t want to spoil the ride, but you will never guess where you will end up. This book is NOT Jim Carey’s memoir, though at times it uses bits and pieces of his life—naming many celebrities (Nic Gage is his best friend, Gwyneth Paltrow becomes an avenging killer), as well as mentioning events that really happened. It’s fantastical and weird (okay, one plot element—Jim Carey is asked to play Chairman Mao, and really gets into Mao’s head). I loved this book, and I think I loved it even more as an audio book because Jeff Daniels’ narration is so wonderful and crazy that it sounds as if Jim Carey is talking dir”
