Animal

A Novel

By Lisa Taddeo
Narrated by: Emma Roberts
Length: 10 hours 47 minutes

Animal

“Raw, visceral, disturbing. Animal delivers gut punch after gut punch, and kept me eagerly listening, wondering what would come next and where it would all ultimately lead. Joan is not a likable protagonist; she is a fascinating one. She is telling her story to an unnamed audience of one whose identity becomes more apparent as the novel progresses and is fully revealed at the end. Taddeo takes us into the psyche of a woman who has experienced multiple traumas. As her story unfolds, her past is gradually revealed through her own lens and in her own voice. This is an excellently-crafted novel that you won’t easily forget.”

The Maidens

A Novel

By Alex Michaelides
Narrated by: Kobna Holdbrook-Smith & Louise Brealey
Length: 9 hours 18 minutes

If you enjoyed The Silence of the Lambs, then you’ll love The Maidens.

“Intensely dark, mysterious, and intelligent, The Maidens is reminiscent of Thomas Harris’ The Silence of the Lambs. The charming and brilliant Edward Fosca provides ample moments of tension in this game of cat and mouse. To top it off, the use of Greek mythology that weaves throughout the narrative lends an aura of the fantastic that makes the story all the more delicious. Louise Brealey’s narration is splendid; both easy on the ears and entirely clear. Kobna Holdbrook-Smith also did great for the sparse male sections within.”

Long Division

By Kiese Laymon
Narrated by: Sean Crisden
Length: 7 hours 41 minutes

Long Division

“Was life so different in 1964, 1985, 2013? This life-changing, time-traveling book within a book that explores the struggle of being a Black 14 year old in Mississippi. Laymon highlights the themes that matter most (family, love, the written word) and the racism that permeates the South - it never really goes away as the years go on, it just takes on different forms in its various cycles. This book is beautiful, thought provoking, and absolutely necessary.”

“This cross between a Shakespeare drama and a Grimm fairy tale is unsettling, attention-grabbing, and thought-provoking in the way stories do so well when reason often fails. A powerful read!”

One Two Three

A Novel

By Laurie Frankel
Narrated by: Emma Galvin, Jesse Vilinsky & Rebecca Soler
Length: 14 hours 58 minutes

One Two Three

One Two Three by Laurie Frankel is the kind of novel that immediately grabs your attention and never lets go. In a marvelously constructed narrative, told in the three distinctly different voices of the Mitchell triplets, the reader learns how the town of Bourne had its water poisoned 16 years ago by a chemical company, resulting in many deaths and even more birth defects. Using three instantly-recognizable voices, Frankel draws us into the world of Bourne, and we become so enamored with the characters and the fate of the town that it's nearly impossible to stop reading once you begin! Suspenseful, funny, heart-wrenching and ultimately hopeful . . . this is a novel book clubs will adore. For lovers of Barbara Kingsolver, Jodi Picoult, and Richard Russo, but this will be a book I try to handsell to everyone. It's that good!”
