Yellowface

A Novel

By R. F. Kuang
Narrated by: Helen Laser
Length: 8 hours 38 minutes

Yellowface

“R.F. Kuang does it again! But honestly, who is surprised! Yellowface is full of terrible people doing terrible things, a horror of mundanity that makes you reconsider everyone around you. But mainly, you have June spiraling out of control in a similar manner to the main character in a tell-tale heart, an unreliable narrator who reliably tells on herself in every single sentence. I was on edge the entire time, desperate for something to go right for someone who wasn't the main character - one of my favorite kind of things in fiction. Yellowface is brilliant, and a stark reminder that we all need to be better.”

Good Night, Irene

A Novel

By Luis Alberto Urrea
Narrated by: Barrie Kreinik & Luis Alberto Urrea
Length: 13 hours 25 minutes

Good Night, Irene

“It was so delightful to hear about these women of the Red Cross called Donut Dollies! They risked their lives, being right in the action as were the soldiers whose morales they lifted during the Second World War. At that time there weren't a lot of options for women to contribute to the war effort, much less by actually BEING THERE. It was genuinely touching knowing that the author's mother had actually done this! What a tribute to her and a gift to all of us reader that he shared this.”

Witch King

By Martha Wells
Narrated by: Eric Mok
Length: 13 hours 9 minutes

If you enjoyed The Blade Itself, then you’ll love Witch King.

“Martha Wells, the Hugo-award winning author of the Murderbot series and the Raksura series delivers a detailed and complex fantasy world with beautifully realized human and non-human cultures and point of view characters, and layers of political intrigue that are as compelling as they are baroque. You won't be able to put down this wonderfully paced fantasy-thriller, which focuses on the love of found families and the bonds that are forged through adversity and triumph, and the dreadful costs that those bonds can lead to. ”

The Book of Charlie

By David Von Drehle
Narrated by: David Von Drehle
Length: 7 hours

The Book of Charlie

“For seven years, David Von Drehle listened to his 102 year old neighbor Charlie White’s stories. Early tragedy helped form Charlie’s stoic nature because he had already learned that nothing is certain, so he lived his life with an optimistic, carpe diem approach. He lived most of his life in the Kansas City area where he faced and overcame tremendous obstacles. His mother had given him just one basic piece of advice that he lived by: do the right thing. Charlie White didn’t just survive a century of tremendous change and conflict but actually thrived. Over and over again, Charlie White bet on himself…and it almost always paid off. This is an uplifting book for our troubled times, a rewarding and enriching reading experience that gives us a lesson on how to live a long and meaningful life. ”
